It's been a busy summer and fall for us. We sold our house, had an auction where we had lived for 30 years, moved to our farm, totally remodeled our new house, (it's almost done) oh sure, I keep finding more things I want done. Our new house, we call it the farm house but it's not really an old farm house but a ranch house on a full basement that I needed to put my own touch on. When you look off the front porch all you see is land and cattle. We are at the back of the farm so our only neighbors are the cattle. We haven't moved the sheep but we are working on that. I miss seeing them in the field everyday so hopefully we will get them out here soon. This is my husband Richard's family farm where he grew up. It's a total of 600 acres, 200 hundred of it ours. Now that we have moved here the whole family lives here. There are about 100 cattle here that we all take care of. We love it here and I am loving this house as it becomes our home. I will post pictures soon as the decorating is about to begin, so until then here are some pictures of the farm.
I bought this little wood dome at the flea market for $1.00 a few weeks ago and this little pair of shoes for $1.50, painted it, sanded it a little, printed out this french saying in reverse, decoupaged it on, sanded a little more, and waxed it. Isn't it cute???
is a post I have been dreading. They tell us within minutes, hours, or a
few days my Mother In Law, Hazel Aaron will leave this world and enter
into the Kingdom of Heaven. She will walk through those gates into the
waiting arms of our Almighty God. Her and my Father In Law have been
married almost 72 years and he loves her so much, we all do. She has
been the best Mother In Law or "Mother" to
me that any woman could have. She always has a smile and encouraging
words for us, never complains although she has been in pain for so long
with her arthritis you would never know she is hurting. Her family is
her greatest joy and we will all miss her so much. We all love you Hazel
and it is time for us not to be selfish and let you fly. We have all
learned so much from you. I have a wonderful, caring, and loving husband
who you taught how to treat a woman he loves and it is all because of
you. We will meet again one day if I can be half the woman you are. Love You, Deena
Cinnamon has a new cousin to play with but she got on the other side of the hot wire and we had to help her get back to her Mom. Richard got her started but she got side tracked so I went to help. The pictures you don't see are the ones of me on the ground. She was stronger than she looked or maybe I'm not as strong as I think I am. Anyway she finally gets back with her Mom but was a little confused. After trying to suck everyone and anyone she finally gets it right. I think I will name her Ginger. Hey. I got the Spice Girls going on here.
Welcome to my blog. I am a Farm Girl at heart and a photographer, still working full time and love to decorate my home. I am married to my wonderful husband for 27 years who puts up with all my ideas and believe me I have many. We have a little male Yorkie named Jake, 3 cats, a Koi pond full of fish and lots of cattle. We treat our cattle better than most people probably treat their kids. We love all our animals. I work at a major University as a Senior Secretary and do photography professionally on the side. My husband's profession is the owner of an archery business for 32 years. I love to decorate our home and scour antique shops and flea markets for unique items all the time. You can usually find me out and about on Saturdays looking. I help my friends decorate their homes too. I love to bake and am always taking things to work. We love to go to Wyoming on vacations. We raise cattle and something you might not expect from me is my husband and I love to Turkey Hunt together. I can't wait for spring turkey season.
