Watered Down Sunday

It's a wet Sunday here in central Kentucky.  My oldest dog is always insistent about going on walks with me.  After about fifteen minutes, we became drenched in a downpour.  After waiting a few minutes, it was over and we were back outside.  

I believe my afternoon will be encompassed by finishing up the PBS series, Manor House.  If you enjoy historical accuracy, and the Edwardian time period, you will appreciate this series.  PBS has other series, such as Frontier House and 1900's House.  These are a great peek into our history as a society.

Some shadows and light at our farm's natural spring.  

This church is for sale, if you are willing to move to North Carolina.  

I can't imagine finding this pair on the top of my roof.  

Here is a collection of tweets about Betty White, because I love Betty White.  
You should too.  

Leaving you with some Stevie Wonder for the weekend.

Thankful Thursday

Thankful today for my family.  I have two children who are very different, but incredibly dedicated to their endeavors.  I look at them sometimes and know, for certain, that I didn't have that kind of purpose in life at their age.  Did I mention that the husband works tirelessly?   The farm is managed, he works full time, and has spent at least a million hours sitting on a five-gallon bucket catching softballs as my daughter's catcher.  

Blessed, I am.  

What are you thankful for today?  Take a moment and share a post telling what you are thankful for.  It doesn't matter if it is big, little, or somewhere in between.

This and That

Yesterday had our family at home enjoying a warm day with bits of sunshine peeking through the clouds.  Quite a few bees were out and about on the farmette.  

I chatted on the phone with my dad for a bit, then he said he had to go and mow the lawn.  Well, no green grass here, so some moss will have to suffice.  

This sweet chickadee, and friends, were at the feeders.  

Our English Pointer spent his day mending fences and doing barn chores with the Secret Agent Farmer Man.  

This is what total exhaustion looks like.

Rain Drops, Windy Times, and Growing Up

Cold one day and warm the next, just another winter in Kentucky.  Strong winds this week damaged some trim on the house, with a few pieces being torn off completely.  

The Christmas Star remains lit on our barn, mainly because we can't let go of the warm feelings it provides.  A small piece gave up this week and stopped working.  I think this reflects us best, as a family.  Mostly on, but slightly the best way.

The girl of the house bought her first prom dress yesterday.  It was a fun girl's day out with a lot of dressed to try on, with lunch and talking afterwards.  

The young man of the house turns twenty in a couple of months.  
Everyone is growing up....

This beauty is for sale.  I could see myself floating down the road.  Wonder if it would fit in my parking space at work? 

What type of cake was all the rage when you were born?  Click right here for the answer.  I know you need that critical information.  

Ben & Jerry are making Bourbon flavored ice cream.  That's right!  I think they should sell it in Kentucky first.  It's only right.  

This very talented dad took some great pictures of his young sons.  

Leaving you with some Postmodern Jukebox for the weekend.  Kenton Chen has a great voice!

Thankful Thursday

Thankful this Thursday for tiny messages.  One of my students saved her orange peel from lunch to make me a special message.  Just the fact she was thinking of me during her lunch break touched my heart.  

It really is the little things.
