First Timer

Watching the two of them, I laughed so hard. There in front of me was a young woman with her Husky’s leash wrapped around her legs. She on skis, it was evident she was teaching her dog how to pull her. It wasn’t going very well. I opted to take some shots while I stilled … Continue reading First Timer

Love Affair

Today’s tale involves my love affair with a horse. Yes, a horse. Our neighbors went on vacation and asked me to take care of their horse while they were away. Prior to this, I had been going over to the barn and pasture every day with apples and carrots, showing this horse how much she … Continue reading Love Affair

Friday Wrap Up

This week! My posts have been brief for a reason. We lost our electric for 5 hours on Sunday due to an extremely bad wind and lightning storm.

If I do take human pictures it mostly is from the back or in … Continue reading To Know

Encouragement

In leaning in close to encourage another   it’s as though Heaven itself conjoins with Earth. ~~~~ Every other year since I have been blogging, I would literally run after the colors seen in Fall. Hundreds if not thousands of pictures have been taken in past years. There is something about Fall that is so … Continue reading Encouragement

Getting There!

Friends, I am getting there. I’ve gone through 72 pounds (32.66 kg) of fertilizer so far. To give you an idea of what I’ve done, I followed the “per plant” directions which state for each established plant, work 1 cup of fertilizer into soil around drip line. To go one step further, I weighed that … Continue reading Getting There!
