It’s A Little Nippy, But Let’s Take A Walk

We haven’t taken a walk around the farm for awhile.

So, get your coat on, it’s a little nippy out, and let’s take a walk.

The dogwood trees sure are pretty this time of year.


I think it’s time to clean the mower. There’s grass growing on the mower deck.


I wonder what made that muddy trail through the clover?


This is one of many abandoned bird nests.


I wonder if a new bird family will move in next year?

Look at this crazy grass.


I would hate to be a bug trying to find my way out of that maze.

Here’s my thinkin’ rock.


Often when I’ve got something weighing on my mind, I”ll search out my thinkin’ rock and sit a spell.

Several problems have been thought out and a resolved while sitting on that rock.

Sometimes we just have to be still to hear God talking to us.

And here’s what I call the thinkin’ tree.


When I was MUCH younger I would have climbed that tree and sat there and pondered about the things important to a young mind. Like school or friends or maybe what I hoped Santa would bring.

Cause I was all about climbing trees when I was a child.

And here’s a rainbow to brighten your day.


I hope each and every one of you are having a bight and cheerful day!



What Makes Me Smile, part VII

Me time!

I must have quiet time.
Time to do what I want or don’t want to do.
No pressures to cook or clean or get this and find that.
I like to sit in the warm sunlight in my hammock swing and read till I get sleepy, then take a nap in that same hammock swing.


I like to read my favorite blogs without a million questions. What’s for dinner? Where’s my shoes?

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my family! As you can see in last weeks post.
But I need me time, too.

Time to paint my toenails.

 Take a bubble bath with the lights off and scented candles burning.

Walk around with my camera and get great shots of God’s things outside.

I like to walk to my thinking rock here on the farm and think. I may not have anything specific to think about or I might have a pressing issue that needs tending to.

Maybe get out my karoke machine and sing at the top of my lungs. And not worry if I hit a sour note.


Play my guitar.

Look at my pictures.

Or stare off into space with nothing inparticular on my mind.

Just me time. Makes me smile!

Your turn!

What’s making you smile this week?
