It takes allot of playing to get Emma (in the background) to actually stop and rest. As for our foster Harvey? He’s done for the night.


A little target practice with my Dad on Memorial Day.



You can never be too ready for the zombie apocalypse.

I was going to post photos of my critters adventures of escape.

But in the light of the horrifying tornado in OK, I decided to post photos and links I’ve lifted off the internet. Sorry if I haven’t given credit to the right people but I’ll try to make sure I do.

All I can think of is the terror these people had to go through to try and escape the path of this tornado.

Prayers to all of those who have lost their homes, family members, livestock and pets. Broken heart

Size and fury of Moor tornado

Pray for OK

I found an excuse to put off mowing the lawn.

…for a little while anyway.





The flash went off on this last picture of Whinny. I thought that was strange since it was a nice sunny day (finally!) I’m glad it did or we wouldn’t have been able to see it was a dog. Apparently my camera knows more than I do.

I mentioned to my husband that the latest photo challenge was “patterns”.

He suggested I go through his turkey hunting photos.

I found these and thought, you know what?

We have patterns…

Pattern  (from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

A pattern, apart from the term’s use to mean “Template[a], is a discernible regularity in the world or in a manmade design. As such, the elements of a pattern repeat in a predictable manner.

A single wall left standing on this outbuilding. Nature is following it’s pattern and reclaiming the land and the manmade patterns.

After going through this last year… DSC_2254

…we decided we had to remove another old pine tree in a different part of the yard. I love these big trees but this other one had started to lean menacingly over the house.


I decided I didn’t want the stump removed, so I thought I’d to try something I had found on Facebook. I bought some exterior primer+paints and some clay pot hangers. I put some gardening fabric in the bottom of each pot to keep the dirt from washing out.


I found these at Jim’s Orchid Supplies. Shipping was very fast too!


At first I was just going to fill a big planter and set it on top but my hubby came up with this idea. Using some leftover barn tin, we just wrapped it around and secured it with roofing nails.


Since it’s pretty darn sharp along the edges we used some of that flex wire wrap stuff. It comes slit open along on side so it was super easy to slip on around the top.


So after a little bit of rearranging, here’s what the (almost) finished project looks like. I plan on doing some landscaping along the bottom of the trunk yet. I’ll add that picture later.

I feel so “green”!

Well, I twisted it slightly. You could either be looking up above or down from above.


Pretty view above.


Uhmm, lookout from above!


Scott and the “princess” looking down from above.


Mylee hoping no one can see her from above.
