Fall Allergies

17 Nov

We are deep into fall, but we haven’t really had much cool weather.  We had record warm temperatures again today, and the allergies are killing me.

I’m ready for the predicted change that’s coming overnight.  I’m hoping that will end the daily sinus headaches.

I’m sharing with Good Fences (you can’t hardly see it for all the tall weeds in the ditch, but it is there!) and Wild Bird Wednesday.

I hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  This week’s items are at the top of my side bar.

Friday’s Hunt v2.20

11 Nov

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week, the topics will be:  Starts with U, Week’s Favorite, and nature.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with T:  I’m tired.  It seems like by the time I get home the sun is setting behind the trees and there’s not enough time.

Week’s favorite:  I went a whole week without anyone seeing the vet!  Yay!  I’m especially happy Red seems to finally be healing up from being banded and the ensuing complications he had.  Poor baby.

Rule of thirds:  I do always try to remember the rule of thirds when I take my pictures.  It does seem to make a difference.

Nature Walk

9 Nov

My mom and I went for a walk at the nearby marsh this weekend.  It was a beautiful warm day.  It’s been an unusually warm fall, which leaves me concerned.

I truly hope we can keep making gains against global warming.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.
