The opening of Deer Hunting season was yesterday. J has several extended family members out looking for a big deer. Unfortunantly, a cold front hit. Friday greeted us with fog, rain/ice and wind. By Saturday morn everthing was covered with a quarter inch of ice. Leave it up to Old Man Winter to cook up a storm for the deer hunters.
One of the first things that come to mind when I think of nature is wildlife. We don’t have an abundance of pheasants, but enough to enjoy and occasionally hit on the way to town.
Windmills are becoming vintage items. In the day, windmills were a main source of water for farmsteads and livestock. Today they are being phased out due to technology and unreliability. More people are putting in wells or solar-powered tank systems for a consistent supply of fresh water.
Whimsical, quirky and humorous are all descriptions that come to mind when I am around these two! Fritz and Roxie are so photogenic and I frequently laugh out loud when I am editing pictures of them. I don’t always appreciate the expressions on their faces until I download images.
I am using the dog pictures to link up with Kim Klassen this week; the Theme is Dream. Roxie works like a dream for The Rancher. She is a great cattle dog and priceless help. We have high hopes and dreams for Fritz.
It’s human nature to be a little imaginative once in a while. It’s the quirky characteristics that make us unique. As time passes by, our clothing and house decor may become retro, but the nature of our personalities will stick with us. Some of our unusual ideas or recipes may not work, but at the week’s end we need to look back and say “I gave it my best!”
