Scavenger Hunt Sunday

24 Jan

This week Ashley has given us the following topics for Scavenger Hunt Sunday:  light, sky, under, artificial light, and space.

Sky:  We are warmer toay.  That’s nice, but the skies are still grey and gloomy.

Light:  Yeah.  It’s light out, but there’s no sunshine.

Space:  This space will soon be growing with crops again.  I might be looking forward to spring.

Artificial Light:  Helen was still hanging out inside the greenhouse (which I use as a barn).  I had to use artificial light for this image (and the next one).

Under:  The three kids were all happily napping under the workbench.

I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  If you are interested, the items for this coming week are in the top of my sidebar.

I’m also sharing with Barn Collective, SOOC Sunday.

Three Seasons of Sky

5 Mar

When I went for my walk Sunday I got to see signs of three seasons.  There was a lone leaf still clinging to one of my oak trees.  That clearly says fall.

Looking across the fields though, there’s still snow on the ground.  It looks like winter

Obviously, the deer appreciate me leaving the gate open for them.

Later in the afternoon, the woodpecker boys were having a territorial spat.

How I hope those two birds are true heralds of spring.  Our forecast is looking much more like we’re going to get back to average and warmer temperatures.

1st of the Month Scavenger Hunt

1 Mar

I can’t believe it’s the first of March.  Already.  I went for a walk up north, but it’s too early to see much progress.  We’ve still got cold temperatures, so there’s no way things are going to get done up here yet.

All the snow might look soft, but don’t believe it.

That’s just the light dusting of snow from overnight.  Underneath, there’s a hard layer of icy stuff.

Here’s the top of the windmill because I always love my windmill.

I had to take a selfie for the scavenger hunt.  I hate selfies (might be a dreaded task even), but I did like the way the sun’s colors showed up on the hood. There’s also a lot of cat fur on there too.

Finally, a dreaded task.  I dread the cleanup.  Not really.  I dread the work it is to try and get the cleanup done.  It’s hard to get people to do things, even when they say it’s their job and you try to hire them.

It’s very frustrating because I don’t have the knowledge, skills, or tools to do it myself.  Hopefully, by next month, I’ll have some real progress to show.
