Strong Visions

Rancher’s have many visions.  They have a vision of daily and seasonal tasks and responsibilities, a business vision, a commitment to the land, livestock and future generations.  They are also dedicated to family and their community.

It’s beneficial to take in the image of a beautiful sunset to keep things in perspective.

1/4 inch or more of ice is strong.  In the right light the ice is artistic and beautiful.  It’s also tough on trees, tree limbs and power lines.

It looks like our Cedar Trees are going to be ok.  The other trees in our yard have taken a hit.  J and I have a few big branches to remove and last week I spent a few hours raking up twiggs … again!

This is a Home Environment project on of the 4-H Kids took to the County Fair.  It looks like a great way to use mismatched buttons.

Molly does not need a road map when we go for a walk.  She probably would be fine without a road to follow!

She is such a wiggle worm to photograph, but I tried.  We head out down the driveway.  Molly spots something and needs to take a closer look.  She tends to check out the culverts along the way too.  There are lots of things to smell and mark.

Kim Klassen’s Kristen Texture Tuesday Theme this week is to use the Kristen texture.  I edited this picture with the watercolor option at BeFunky and used a double layer of Kristen as my texture.

I can’t pick just one favorite fruit.  I am a HUGE fruit eater and love all the flavor, color, dishes and desserts that fruit can be used in.

In life, we should have a vision.  A purpose that keeps our dreams alive and strong.  A mental picture of where the fruits of our labor could lead.  We don’t always have a map to follow; sometimes our heart leads the way.  I start my day with a cup of coffee and social media.  Buttons Thoughts always give me something to think about during chores.  May your dreams remain strong visions and the fruits of your labor be strong as you fulfill life beyond your imagination.

    I think it is good to have solitude to reflect so we have strength for duties that call us … love Molly! Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #57!

    Oh Robyn I love this post you are so right Farmers having strong visions I believe they have too. I have not written about my cows for awhile I have to put my head in the other joys and challenges of my life. There is never pieces of our lives that continue to fall as we wish but they always make a beautiful completed picture in time. I just keep letting those pieces fall and hope that picture comes sooner than later sometimes. Does that make sense to anyone?
    I thank you for linking my blog it is quite unexpected. I am not the best farmer these days but I am working my way back. My mind may be a farmer but my body is taking a vacation:)

      The fruit pict is from my archives with a new edit and texture.

      I do love my little dog. Molly my hyper little buddy, my good helper and cuddler. We went on a walk today. I just love watching her facial expressions and exploration. Now, if I could get her to mind me, lol!

    You have a great set this week. My dog was such a city dog, and I always feared her getting off her leash as I knew she would bolt with the unexpected freedom, though now that she resides on a farm in Iowa, I’m sure she could handle it just fine. I love your texture Tuesday edit!

    • Robyn says:

      Don’t feel bad, Emily. I got Molly October of 2009 and last Christmas was the first time I ventured to let her off the leash while walking. She kind of goes it on her own, but comes when I call her enough times. Watching the fun Molly has is worth it. I walk 2 miles and she gets in more than that. She frequently stops and looks at me like I am a slow poke!

    I sure could have used Molly’s help yesterday when I was wandering around lost.
