We take care of the land...it takes care of us.

We're just a couple of country dwellers......

that love nature, hunting, fishing, gardening, campfires, crafting, cooking, canning, laughter and living!!

Ya just never know what I'll blog about next...

So visit us often!

It's been too long!!

The Sall's had to break down
and get a new computer...

something that was
NOT on my 
Christmas to-do list!

What a disaster to have your computer
go down in the middle of three different 
photo jobs!
Over 1500 photos to save and edit 
and no COMPUTER!!


Such a trivial problem 
as I sit here and watch the news...

My heart and prayers 
go out to the grief-stricken families
in Newtown, Connecticut.

Such an UN-imaginable tragedy!

Impossible to feel their pain,
no words can express enough sympathy!

I hope this community can gather together
and begin a healing process...

they will never forget,
they will always remember these innocent victims...

May all of our tears turn into love and support...

My time has been consumed lately with a different 
computer and windows 8 (ugh!)
but, it looks like things are returning to normal at least!
Today I am grateful for normal!
Hug your family today and let 
them know how much
you love them!

Hugs from the country,

Beautiful photos . . . I liked what you said, " . . . turn our tears into love and support."

I can't imagine . . . just can't fatthom such a horrific death and keep saying over and over inside my mind and heart, why, why, why . . .

(I took a college class to figure out Windows 7. . . I hope you are smiling!)

I am horrified, sickened and saddened by the events. I cannot even fathom the senselessness-horrible.

On a lighter note, welcome back.

There are no words for such a tragedy, so true. Much love and hugs to you also.

Words cannot express the grief or tragedy.
