Last Fall Sunflower

Sunflowers are my favorite. Snapped this right before last week’s freeze. Good-Bye summer and fall. I shall miss you…  The countdown begins now for April wildflowers! This photo simply makes me happy on this dreary November day!

Velveeta 2 cups cooked chicken ( I bought chicken already cooked marketed as Fajita Chicken at grocery) 1 … [Read More...]

Saturday Sunset

November 2 2014 Sunset

This was a busy weekend at the farm. We are preparing for the winter which means putting up lots of summer "stuff" such as hoses, metal chairs, yard art. We also have been cleaning barns and putting everything in it's proper place and making sure all equipment is winter ready. Cowboy just finished with a huge project of getting barn doors built for the donkey and goat barn. Everything is in place … [Read More...]

Punting in Cambridge

Punt

When in London we took a little side-trip one afternoon to Cambridge. What a sweet town and an amazing university. The Avon river runs throughout the university and punting is the outdoor activity that everyone was enjoying. Students, professors, families and tourists all were all out and about in the beautiful October weather. It seemed everyone was punting and if they were not then they were … [Read More...]

London Marble Arch

Arch

The Arch is one of my favorite tourist places to see in London. It is placed directly off of Oxford Street in Hyde Park. The arch was designed by John Nash in 1827. It was originally meant to reside in in Buckingham Palace area and serve as an entrance, but was moved in 1851. It is very beautiful. It was a block away from my hotel so I had the pleasure of admiring it every day. Love walking thr … [Read More...]

London Eye

London Eye

The one tourist thing most likely for me NOT to do? The London Eye. I do not like high places and even when I used to ski I could never go to top ski runs as it terrified me. Afraid to be on top hotel floors. Cannot be on a tower where you are looking over a railing. Eat at a restaurant at the top of a building- not me. But... how could I go to London and not have the best view of the … [Read More...]

Hotel Art

Hotel Arch London

On our recent stay in London we lodged at The Arch Hotel which is just two blocks from The Arch. Great location and great staff at this smaller boutique hotel. Of course I found this picture in the hotel sitting room right off the bat. Have to love the simplicity of this art. Made us feel right at home. He is pretty cute and wish I had him at home even though we have never had this breed of d … [Read More...]

Cute Times Four

Booth x 4

Blogging has not come easy the last few months. To complicate matters I have also been gone the last few weeks. I am hoping to focus more on blogging this fall and that means I must get out and take photos. I am challenging myself to keep my camera handy and to find the fall beauty which will surround me. Blogging, for me, is like writing my journal or diary and I hope to get back on track. I … [Read More...]

Mrs 35

Mrs 35

Mrs. 35 is really a character. She exudes lots of cow personality. Sometimes she seems to need her space from the other girls so she hides. Last week I could not find her and spent an hour looking for her. She finally popped her head out of her hiding place in the trees to let me know that she was doing just fine! Love this cow! … [Read More...]

Prickly Pear Cactus

Prickly Pear Fruits

Cactus at the farm is...well cactus. We have too much of it and it is constantly a thorn in our side. (Pardon the Pun!) In the spring it has very pretty yellow flowers. In the fall is has beautiful pink "fruit" and nothing is prettier than all the plants with the varying degrees of pink everywhere. My theory is if you have to endure the cactus at least you can enjoy the "pretty in pink" in … [Read More...]

Outdoor Farm Shower

Outdoor Shower Sign

We have an outdoor shower at farm. It has hot and cold water so we can usually use it from late April to November depending on the year. The shower comes in handy because most of the time farm work makes us ultra-dirty and being able to shower outside keeps the farmhouse clean (Well, that is my story and I am sticking with it). It is nice and big and enclosed so we have all the privacy we need m … [Read More...]
