spending time

Enjoying a cup of coffee and reading recipes.

This day I am thankful to be able to spend time with family and friends, not only during the holiday season but throughout the year as well.

I am linking up with It's a Small Town Life! for Thankful Thursday.

perched eagle

It's pretty common that when we drive anywhere we will see an eagle.  When I took this photo it was very foggy.  I spied this eagle sitting at the top of this tree looking down into the creek.

frosty morning

What a frosty morning we woke up to the other day, and what snow we had has mostly melted now.

barn at night

Wow, can't believe that I'm actually posting again on this blog.  So, I'm going to start with a random shot of our barn taken sometime this past fall.

amish buggy

Up in Chili Wisconsin.

barn quilt

Found this barn quilt on County Road A in Southeast Wisconsin.


Love the sunflower at the top of the gate.

ribbon fence

I found this fence by a school, I'm guessing the school kids must have decorated the fence.

Heading down our road to town to bring our van into the body shop.

wet field

The snow is gone and the flooding begins.

hairball fence

Heading down the country road as I always do I spied something quite unusual.  It's the first time I have ever seen anything like it.  I know nothing about cattle and their behaviors, but I am almost 100% sure that this fence was not a "hot" fence, meaning it had no electricity going to it so that they would keep away from it, and since it was not a hot fence the cattle could rub along side of it and not get zapped, therefore producing hairballs on a good part of the fence line.  I loved it when I looked up and the cattle were watching me, I'm sure trying to figure out what exactly I was doing.
