Song-ography and Scavenger Hunt

This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items are:  Unusual Crop, Details, On the Ground, Blooper and Color.

Unusual Crop:  I might be a total farm nerd because I was trying to decide how to do a picture of my popcorn because it was no good and I had to throw it out.  Then I realized the prompt meant photo cropping.  I am totally ignoring that and showing you how I got my hair cropped today.  I really messed with the stylist because I didn’t want any extra cute styling or layers or anything because I won’t get my hair cut for another two years.  I mean it won’t have scissors touching it other than when I can’t stand my bangs and chop them off.  That’s how long it takes for me to get enough to cut it off and send to Wigs for Kids or Locks of Love.  I go back and forth between the two.  If you like the cause and don’t have ten or twelve inches of hair, you can donate money that helps turn the hair into wigs.

The song this week at Song-ography is Nothing More by Alternate Routes.  You really should check it out and it’s wonderful message of kindness.

On the Ground:  I had a female cardinal on the ground eating with a lot of sparrows today.  You’ll notice there is still a lot of snow on the ground.  Oh, I almost made it through the post without complaining about the winter weather.

Blooper:  It never fails.  Somebody takes off flying as soon as they see me through the window.  I also think I need new windows, not because they would be more efficient and not let my heat escape, but because they are old and the glass distorts too much.

Here’s another bird blooper, just for the fun of it.  The little downy woodpecker is totally photobombing the blue jay.

At least I noticed the little guy streaking past and got a chance to take his picture.  Yes, the texture is called More Freakin’ Snow by Mother Nature.

Color:  I had to make my own color.  Okay, I bought my color from Wal-Mart.  Really.  I’m tired of only seeing brown and white.

I want beautiful spring!

I’m also sharing at SOOC Sunday, Bird d’Pot, Mosaic Monday and Macro Monday.

Good Random Fun

This week for good, I have wine.  We racked a lot of wine this weekend.  I still have about nineteen gallons in the carboys.

In a couple of weeks, we’ll bottle about ten gallons.

It will get to start filling the new rack my dad made for me (but I don’t have it moved out here yet).

It’s good stuff!

Over the weekend, I noticed this random sign of spring.  Horn boogers!

Marley is starting to lose his winter undercoat.  That surely means spring is just around the corner.

For fun, I’m sharing my talented cow, Maxine.

It’s Still Winter

Just to prove it, we’ve had several inches of snow over the last couple of days, and a mixture of freezing rain and snow is in the forecast for tomorrow.

It’s getting harder to find pretty in the winter weather.
