Settling In

Are you really going to take my picture again?  All I really want is to take a nap.

I need to get ready for my early afternoon nap.

Now I am all ready for some serious snoozing.

Bambino

Our neighbors rescue horses, clydesdale’s to be specific.  They then decided to breed them.  Their babies are so darned cute!  Someday I will have a more powerful lens to get a more close up picture.

Some critter got run over in front of our driveway and the turkey vultures showed up to clean up the remains.

Blooming Iris

Last fall my mother decided to tear out all of her iris bulbs….as in she no longer wanted any.  These bulbs are originally from my grandmother, so I couldn’t let them all get trashed.

I was excited to see that some yellow bloomed.

Taffy says hurry up because you smell so pretty when you are in full bloom.

 

Go Away

Sadie is a cutie, but I don’t think she was ready for her close-up.

New Lens

Glen got me a new camera lens for my birthday.  The weather has been too crappy to go outside and try it out.  So here is a picture of our cat, Lily.

Special Christmas Gift

Glen and I, after much deliberation, decided to give Taffy the ultimate Christmas gift.  We gave Taffy the gift of adoption.  So naturally I had to dress her up for the occasion.

Baby it’s cold outside

I bought James some new sweaters on black Friday.  This week our temps took a nose dive so he is ever so grateful for the new threads.

If it weren’t for pesky moles and 4 dogs we would have a pristine yard.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
