something to think about

Do not ask the Lord to guide your footsteps, if you are not willing to move your feet.

random saturday

Well, after a couple cups of coffee this morning,  I hit the ground running.  We went out to Camp 6 Lake and my husband fished and I kayaked.  When we got home, we had lunch, I showered up and then I went to visit my neighbors for awhile.  When I got back, we went out to Seidel Lake and I kayaked while my husband fished.  We made a couple stops to visit family on the way home, and after supper, I went for a walk and found 5 more Monarch caterpillars.  I now have 7 caterpillars.  One of the caterpillars that I found the other day has already made it’s chrysalis this morning and I’ll take pics tomorrow and post them.  The following pics were taken throughout the day.

I forgot to mention that as I was taking my walk I startled a mama bunny who was nursing her 4 babies.  I didn’t mean to scare them, and the mama ran off as well as one of the babies.

old homestead

I was told about this old homestead by a friend of mine.  It’s on her land and she knows how much I love old buildings, so she told me where it was and how to get to it.  I never would have found it unless I knew about it, because you can’t see it from the highway.  Another friend told me that she thinks the log structure is a horse barn, given the width of the doors.  We had an interesting walk around the area.  We also found 3 deer carcasses and 1 cow carcass that we figure were left by wolves.  It just makes sense considering the fact that wolves are being spotted more and more often in this area.  This homestead isn’t very far from my house, maybe 2 miles or less, as the crows flies.

fields of gold

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of a field filled with dandelions and a verse from the song “Fields Of Gold”.  The picture I used was from a few years ago, and just recently, that same field was filled with dandelions, as it does every year at this time.  I pass this field every day on my way to work and it made me smile every time I saw all those flowers. I took my good camera with me to take pics and I even did some in HDR.

oh, give me a home…

where the buffalo roam…  Last week I went with a friend for a drive around on her land.  They own a buffalo farm and they own quite a bit of land in the area. We went to an old homestead that I have been to before, but I never took the backroads to get there.  We passed one of the buffalo pens and then headed over to the homestead.  From there we did some exploring around a small lake that is right by the homestead.  The house and garage that were once a part of this homestead have collapsed years ago, but the pigsty and grainery are still standing.

cool clouds

These shots were taken last week on my way to work.  I need to get caught up on my posting here, because I have quite a few other pics from last week as well, and I just keep taking more.  These are all HDR shots.
