Shades of Brown

Another busy week, but less hectic than the last.

The weaned calves are doing well.  Earlier this week, J let them out into a small pasture to roam during the day.  J brings the calves in at night to keep them from spooking and running away.  We are still being careful so they don’t fright.

My hens would dearly like to get some fresh air.  They have not been allowed out of the coop since we weaned calves.

Roxie has been enjoying the chance to sleep in the entry way.  She thinks it’s much more fun to be inside vs. sleeping in her dog house.  Roxie also thinks Molly has a pretty comfortable bed.

When I first saw brown as a color selection for the photo challenge I was a little skeptical.  We see so much brown during the fall and winter I was having trouble thinking of it’s beauty.  Brown grass and dirt do not romanticize fall for me.

On my way to work I cross Rabbit Creek.  This creek supports many wild animals.  It is common to drive upon wild turkeys several times a week.  This got my creative mind thinking and appreciating the browns of fall.




Here are more shots of the neighbor’s horses I took last week.  I love the hint of pink in the morning clouds.

I took these shots Wednesday morning.

Today is Veteran’s Day!  I want to thank all of our Military Service Men and Women for their dedication to protecting the freedom of our Nation both today and throughout the years.

On this three day weekend I can be found in my kitchen or at the computer.  What’s new?  If anyone wants to volunteer to wash dishes or press pants for me I will pay you with delicious eats!

The Hubby will be out and about with his Uncles looking for a great big deer.

Hope you have a safe and fun weekend.

    It looks like the cow in the top photo is practicing camouflage for the hunting season! I love all the photos that illustrate brown in your neck of the woods!

      Kim, I saw this cow on my way home from work. I had to laugh at her in the tall grass and am guessing she just got a HUGE drink of water.

    What lovely shots! Sounds like you have such a relaxing life out on the ranch. Horses, cows, chickens, wild turkey…oh my! 😉
    Thanks for joining us in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. I hope you’ll be back again on Friday for our new theme, white. Have a great day!

      Some days are relaxing and some are hectic. Most days are unpredictable … so goes life and we enjoy it!

      I used to ask the Rancher “What are you doing today.” I no longer ask that because he informed me that he has no idea. There are projects he wants or needs to do, but as soon as he steps out the door there is no telling what his day could entail. Now I ask “Honey, what are your intentions for the day?”
