I believe these two will be my pick for tomorrow's Kentucky Derby.  Think they will be fast enough?  

Actually, I have scoped out a couple of horses, right here.  I am thinking Exaggerator or Gun Runner.  Word on the track is Nyquist lacks some, "buzz".  Makes me think of Nyquil......


How about we all whip up some of this tonight?  


This police officer is getting some marriage proposals and I can see why, awwwww......


Leaving you today with The Infamous Stringdusters.  
They are a favorite.  


Linking up today with Nancy and Tanya.......

Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for barns.  They seem to be keeping me afloat, during this softball season, and providing me with landscape photo, after landscape photo.  

Not only am I nearing the end of the school season, but softball season will be drawing to a close pretty soon.  This means I will be back among the living in blogland, and life, really.

Exciting Times



Lately it's been all barns and ballplayers around the farmette.  I threw some flowers in the mix yesterday and I am sure the excitement of that was overwhelming for some of you.  Let's see what else has been happening in my world.........

*the tiller coughed and sputtered this weekend, instead of purring like a kitten

*all of the girl's softball socks have holes in them 

*always interesting to find some wild turkey in the fridge and I am not talking about the bourbon

*tattling is a sinful activity, especially at the end of the school year 

*secret agent farmer man doesn't find the prospect of owning a llama entertaining  

*the PTO is hosting a lunch for us weary teachers tomorrow, can't wait 


Enough about me.....what's happening in your neck of the woods?

Thriller, Filler, Spiller


Today I went in search of some flowers, because it is that time.  I got sidetracked and ended up buying some Lavender.  I have never had any luck growing this plant from seed.  


Some Dianthus was also in order.  


I also picked up some Coreopsis for some thriller.  I decided to use the thriller, filler, spiller,  method for some container gardening.  


I also picked up some crazy, corkscrew plant and I don't even know the name.  



Currently I am lacking in the, "filler", part, but everything should fill out in the next couple of weeks.

Whew!  The work week is drawing to a close.  Only eleven days of school left.  


Firefighters rescuing police officers?  You can read about it here.  


Check out these photos from National Geographic's Travel Photography Contest. 
 Fantastic 


I think we could all use a smile for today and this will surely give you one.  


Sending you off into the weekend with some Marvin Gaye. 
 Put your dance shoes on.....

Thankful Thursday

Green fence gate to the left of the barn!

Thankful this Thursday for some much needed rain.  Not only does the ground need the rain, but it slows the schedule down just a bit as well.  Not a bad thing in my book.

Starry Sky



Just a photo of a fuzzy moon and a few stars in the sky.  


"Doubt thou the stars are fire, 
Doubt that the sun doth move. 
Doubt truth to be a liar, 
But never doubt I love."
