A Fall Afternoon

29 Nov

This is what it looks like from my front yard.  There’s nothing growing, and my animals huddle in the barnyard.  The cows on the back field belong to the neighbor.

It’s hard to get everything done in the evenings now.  It will be like this until mid-January.  Luckily I have ten days of winter break during some of those shortest days, but right now it’s a rush.  Are you struggling to get everything packed into the fewer hours of daylight?

A bit of good news!  My camera is on it’s way home from its cleaning.

I also wanted to share that my goat, Millie, is hosting a giveaway on her blog.  She is giving away two bars of goat’s milk soap.  You can click HERE to check it out and enter.

      Thanks. You don’t even have to follow to enter the giveaway, but she appreciates it!

    What a glorious, frosty shot. Yes, it is hard to get everything done in the few daylight hours you have at this time of year.

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 6:23 pm #

      Thanks. I feel like I’m running a race right now to get it all done.

    What a beautiful view!!! Just a few short weeks until the days get longer!!!

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

      I will certainly be celebrating the winter solstice and the return of the sun!

    since i just ordered more soap from you, i won’t join in on the giveaway.

    i love this shot for its light and perspective!

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 7:11 pm #

      The soap is on its way! I do appreciate the order. I love the late afternoon light. I just wish it was a little later in the day when it happens.

    What a lovely late afternoon view! Since I milk in the mornings, I am having to wait longer and longer for it to get a least a little bit light out! I’ll sure be celebrating the Solstice and the return of the Sun right along with you! 🙂

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 7:12 pm #

      I’m milking in the dark. That’s why we’re in with the chickens right now. I would really love a real milking building. 🙂

  7. Barb November 29, 2012 at 8:04 pm #

    I love the late afternoon light on the fence! Great color.

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 8:19 pm #

      Thanks. It is my favorite time to take pictures.

  8. kateri November 29, 2012 at 8:04 pm #

    I hear you on the short days. It is fustrating! The evening light is so lovely, though!

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 8:20 pm #

      It is. I just keep missing it now. I’m doing chores until it’s dark.

  9. Beth - VA November 29, 2012 at 8:10 pm #

    great shot!! oh, i love giveaways … i hope you joined in on mine. be sure to do so … don’t miss out please. ( :

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 8:20 pm #

      I’ll have to stop by. I didn’t have a computer, so I’m horribly behind.

  10. Pamela Gordon November 29, 2012 at 8:33 pm #

    I love this photo. I like the colours and the cows on the hill in the background.

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 8:43 pm #

      It’s nice to see the cows. It’s a lot better than bare fields. 🙂

  11. Kathy November 29, 2012 at 8:40 pm #

    Love how the sun shines on the fence boards.

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 8:43 pm #

      That late afternoon sun is wonderful!

  12. Alica November 29, 2012 at 8:45 pm #

    The short days sure do make it challenging…I’m sure especially for you, since you’re working off the farm! Here’s to spring! 🙂

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 8:46 pm #

      No kidding. I just realized this was from last weekend in the morning, not afternoon. Oops…

  13. jim November 29, 2012 at 9:03 pm #

    Good fence.

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 9:53 pm #

      They are beautiful, but they aren’t very practical. I’ve had to “goat proof” them. 🙂

  14. Marie-AZ November 29, 2012 at 9:47 pm #

    Oh, but this is a beautiful scene! I love the light and the colors. It’s so pretty there even in winter!

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 9:54 pm #

      It really is a beautiful place that I live in.

  15. Rosey November 29, 2012 at 9:57 pm #

    I’ve just found life in general to be so busy lately!!

    I’m visiting from the Thursday’s Favorite Things hop. 🙂

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 9:59 pm #

      I’m so glad you took the time to stop by. I think it must be society in general. I always figured things would slow down once my son was grown, but it doesn’t seem to be working out that way. 🙂

  16. Nancy@livininthegreen November 29, 2012 at 10:15 pm #

    Love the view…so nice. Thanks for sharing this, blessings!

    • Teresa November 29, 2012 at 10:26 pm #

      I am very blessed to have such a beautiful open view! Thanks for stopping by.

  17. Joani November 30, 2012 at 12:02 am #

    The cows in the distance look so soothing. I’m sure the time change doesn’t help in getting chores done. So glad in Arizona we don’t change the time. Have a great weekend.

    • Teresa November 30, 2012 at 6:56 am #

      I would love to be on Daylight Savings Time year round!

  18. Tanya November 30, 2012 at 6:29 am #

    pretty picture…and yes, i am having a hard time getting stuff done!

    • Teresa November 30, 2012 at 6:56 am #

      At least it won’t be too much longer before the days start getting longer.

  19. Janis November 30, 2012 at 7:19 am #

    Nice landscape shot…the lighting is so pretty!

    • Teresa November 30, 2012 at 7:20 am #

      Thanks. Those little bits of golden light are my favorite!

  20. rebelle November 30, 2012 at 3:30 pm #

    So compelling.

  21. Margaret November 30, 2012 at 11:17 pm #

    A perfect glimpse of country life. I love it.

    • Teresa December 1, 2012 at 7:36 am #

      Thank you. With the short days, glimpses are about all I can provide right now.

  22. Katherines Corner December 3, 2012 at 7:25 am #
