I think the extent to which I have any balance at all, any mental balance, is because of being a farm kid and being raised in those isolated rural areas.

Day 322 of 365 - Young Ducks

A couple of months ago, a pair of whistling ducks hatched 5 ducklings at our dirt tank (pond). I was never able to get a photo of them. But today, as I went by, I noticed these young ducks. Mama and papa duck brought them back on their way south!

Day 319 of 365 - Gal & Me!

We spent part of today gathering cows, weaning a few calves, & checking some other cows. Saw a brand new baby calf, but alas I did not have the camera with me. Maybe tomorrow...
So you get a photo of my number one mount, Gal, and me!

Day 317 of 365 - Cattle Egrets

This morning when I went about my morning chores, I first noticed the cattle egrets by the goat pen - I ran to the house and snatched my camera to get a photo or two. What was so amazing, is that 15 of these lovely birds stayed around the headquarters all day, so I snapped several more photos. I won't post them all, but I am going to post more than one - just because they are such lovely birds. They are also a sign of wetter weather, so we are very excited to see them!!

Day 309 of 365 - View from the Loveseat



Looking up on the top of the TV cabinet as I iced my strained heel. It is still very sore - but hopefully will be better soon. Thanks for all the concern!
