My Usual View

When I feed bottle kids, I have a little different perspective.

Yep.  Bambi’s doe gets supplemental bottles (I’m really feeding her all she needs, but we pretend it’s a supplement).

She races up to us (my mom feeds her while I’m at work) and is always ready to take a bottle.

Even when we don’t have a bottle for her, she’s looking for one.

That usually results in her sucking on fingers or a chin or a nose.

She’s a sweet little lady, and I’m glad she’s happy to take the bottle from us, even if I hardly recognize her right side up.

A Thinking Stone

It’s no secret that my Back Forty is my sacred space.  It’s where I love to be more than any other place in the world.

Back Forty

There’s a few big rocks out there that have been dug out of where we make hay.

I like all of them, but there’s one in particular that is special to me.


It’s where I go to sit and think.  I can’t wait for green grass and sunshine and long days enjoying the pasture again.
