Wicked Walk 7/something/2015

Were I a real chicken, I would be molting, sitting, flopping and doing every unattractive chicken-thing imaginable right now.  While I’ve had 2 lovely vacations the past 6 weeks, the in-betweens have been riddled with hardship enough for a century.  Which is why, for the first time in 14 months, I’ve not a walk to really…

Joy

Joy is simple and can be found in many different things.  Children find joy without effort.  Or maybe, joy finds them. Addie wanted to see the beach.  This picture captures her first trip into the ocean. Hands held high, feet hovering over the water, completely airborne. Joyful. I hope you find joy in something today.…

Wicked Walk 7/15/2015

July is always hot in Texas and today was no exception.  I had recently been commissioned to feed the neighbors creatures so I awoke early and walked there and back, taking photos along the way.

To Love

They say to have loved and lost is better than to never have loved at all.  Today I am not so sure.  Yesterday morning I awoke to let out my chickens into their courtyard, aka run, for the day.  I immediately noticed Stripe-Stripe was not among them.  I knew in my heart she was gone…

Wicked Walk 7/8/2015

I have a confession to make.  I did not walk on July the 8th.  I spent 4 hours doing laundry at the neighbors because our sewer backed up into the kitchen which translates loosely to bad smells and no using the washing machine, dish washer, sinks, toilets or showers.  Ugh.  Add this to me being…

Wicked Walk 7/1/2015

Coming back from a trip is always a nice thing.  East or west, home is best!  Stripe-Stripe was glad to see me along with all my other little creatures. Here is what I saw. At home. This is Stripe-Stripe’s “Where have you been Mama!?!” face. This is her ‘looking at a flower face’.  It was a…
