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!

Rainy Days and Mondays

It's a dreary old day out there today...

one of those days to let pass you by,
while you are at the spa!

Ha, ha, ha right??

some day I will take myself 
up on such a preposterous idea
and pamper away...

 I have all the essentials I need
right here at home...

 Except a bath tub
(it's still in the garage waiting for installation)

so today I will take advantage 
of an inside day and pick a new project...

Hmmm, wish I had my sisters
talent for sewing something...

I have blocks to make...
Mother's Day will be here soon!!

Or I could just do what I feel like doing...
and hang out on the couch

"Dad could get away with this, but not us kids!" circa: 1950

(but, then I wouldn't score any points
with my hard-working hubby!)

I know what he'd like to come home to....
 that ain't happening either!

Have a great week, my friend!
and don't do anything I wouldn't do...
Homemaker Hugs,

Bouquet Believer

It's been awhile
since I've joined with 
Mary at Little Red House
for Mosaic Monday...

Her still life photography
is so peaceful,
for some reason I thought of her
this morning...

longing for more peaceful moments (I guess)

the wind blew hard yesterday
and it was 10 degrees this morning!!

How are the May flowers going to come
if we only have April Freezes??

We've only had a small amount of nice weather
to work in the garden...
there's soooo much to do!

I'm thinking garden rows of flowers 
this year!!  
Rows of sunflowers, snapdragons, cosmos,
daisies, and lavendar
what else would you like 
in your bouquet??
( I want to be the flower lady at the corner market
on French Street!! )

Fresh bouquets and homemade pickles"...
"somebody slap me
before this dream gets me any deeper!"

Anyway, I'm patiently waiting
for warm sunny days...
I'll be the one in the garden
moaning and groaning and complaining
about whose idea this was!!

But, you never know,
dreams do come true

thanks for joining me today!
Hope you'll pop by 
to see more Mosaic Monday Posts.

Have a great day,

I Survived It

The Big
5 0 
came and went...

I actually survived 
without any major melt downs,

just a little heavy 
sweat from working in the garden.

NO spa treatments needed...
the collagen boost
got put off till next year...
and who's gonna notice a butt lift 
when you sit around 
blogging all day!

I DID get rid of
some gray hair and got 
a new "do",
but that was overdue
by about 5 years...

all in all this "big"
birthday breezed by
and my guy
managed to "make" my day
with all of my favorite things...

~peace and quiet~
 ~flowers that will last all summer~
~a private Crab Leg Dinner~
~a bottle of wine~
~a Carrot Cake~
~and a sunset bonfire~
 (I'm glad I decided to keep him)

Life is Good,
here's to a few more good years!

Meeting The Flockers

Our weather
is FINALLY taking a turn
for the better...

warmer temperatures
and beautiful blue skies...

(a big sigh here)


Although I have been enjoying
my time indoors doing
my own "nesting"
 and making items to sell 
to my fellow "nesters"...
It's time to get outdoors 
and start cleaning up, 
cleaning out, 
hauling out,
yada, yada, yada!

But, before all that
let's meet some more

 I love dropping in on them 

heaven knows there
is always room 
for one more...

They are quite the 
if you're a nature lover
like we are...
Pin the Tail on the Pintail anyone?

Okay, so if you're not into ducks and geese
here's another family of FlOCKERS
to meet....

(I know, It's BAAaaaaD!)
Have a Happy Spring Day, my Friend!
