Oh Stanley!!!

Well, the wild kitten we rescued from under our chicken coop back in August has really turned our little house upside down. This little monster is full of shenanigans, he keeps our little dogs on their toes and has managed to worm his way into Hubby's heart too!

How did that happen??

He is loving and cuddly enough for me and has enough spunk and sass to give Troy a run for his money!

Oh...Stanley, we do love you!!!

Week #1 Photography Project : Colours

This week's photo is from around my house. Everything is pretty much grey, dreary and gloomy around here in the midst of the darkest, coldest days of Winter. 

These colors just stand out and grab my attention. A reminder for me to stay on track, eat healthily and to treat my body kindly.


I know myself well enough to know that I don't always finish what I've started. You may have already noticed this, as I notoriously go MIA here on my blog.

So, the plan is to follow through with this 52 week photo challenge that I've joined on Facebook and to help me become better acquainted with my camera, take better photos and share the results with you guys as well as the facebook group. 

And so it begins....Week #1 Colours

Winter Blues

Not much to photograph in the garden this time of year...

Just sitting here enjoying the simple things around the house as I listen to the snow sliding off the roof.

The object of my affection today.... a little pyrex passion!

"Fly Me To The Moon"

Woke up to a power outage early this morning...On the bright side, I was able to see the moonlight dancing across the floor allowing the chance to enjoy the simplicity of this beauty!

Early arrival

Winter has arrived...and with it the first snow on November 3rd. brought almost 11 inches. 

Well hello Winter!!!

I know it comes every year...but this year it caught us off guard with such a large amount this early on.

Could this be a sign of the Winter ahead? 

We will hunker down and put another log on the fire!

Confussion is nothing new

Fall is here and this lovely lady is a little confused about the weather.

 Found this one and only lonely blossom.... In all her glory!

Her last little hoorah before winter arrives.
