Frosty

The sun finally came out yesterday, after spending almost the entire year in hiding.  Clear skies meant a frosty morning was in store for us.  I scurried outside to snap a few pictures before getting ready for work.  Have a great Friday everyone!  Love ya’! P.S.  I hope my super white feet didn’t blind you. …

Wicked Walk 1/7/2015

There are several reasons I call the great state of Texas home.  I’ll not bother listing them all now but one main reason is the weather.  Sure, summers are hot but the winters are mild and wonderful.  I don’t know who moved me without my permission but the last couple of weeks I’ve not spent…

Spooky Old Tree

The Chicken Paints

I have a family chock-full of fine artists.  They can sketch, draw, paint, watercolor and make any canvas a thing of beauty. Then you have me.  I am really good at raising chickens, I cook a mean pie and am unintentionally funny (I run into things and fall down a lot).  I took art once. …
