Snowvember In The Country!

So...yesterday we had a little storm blow in.  Actually, it was a full-blown, old fashioned blizzard.

 These brave little soldiers weathered out the storm on our dinner bell right outside the door.

And with the morning light....

Time to start digging out.

 I think we need a bigger tractor.  Ha!

These guys were quick to arrive, cleaning off our highway.  They had been out all night working tirelessly, on the main highway that runs through our small town.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the house....

This guy has a lot of trouble getting around when the drifts get over, well, to be honest...two inches.

But, somehow he manages.  I wonder if snow shoes would help?  Do they make them for dogs?
On a totally unrelated note....have I told you how this dog swims?  This is how he swims...he DOESN'T  SWIM.  HE SINKS.  I thought all dogs could swim, but apparently not, eh?  This, my friends, is another story for another day.

                                                                   See ya next Spring!

Country Critters Plus A Little Bit Of Fall

Happy Fall!  I was so excited to see our owl come back.  Actually, I heard him before I saw him.  I could hardly wait for the sun to come up so I could see him.

And this fella...what a beautiful creature!

And this funny little guy....

 Happy Fall, Y'all

Grand Cayman....The Perfect Vacation

So....I really thought I would get this post up right after our trip to Grand Cayman.  But, that was like....uhhh....two months ago.  Sheesh, where does the time go?

We stayed at the Westin Grand Cayman on the famous Seven Mile Beach.  And let me tell ya,  it was the best decision ever!  The hotel, the staff, the bed, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, the BEACH, were all perfect.  Actually, it was better than perfect.  Is that possible?

The lobby is beautiful and  beachy.

And I ran screaming through these doors dragging my luggage behind me...just look at that water!
Yes, I made a teeny tiny scene, but my husband got over it.

The umbrellas and beach chairs are free, however, you have to rent the cabanas.

 They have surfboards for tables at the beach bar area.  Groovy, eh?  We ate and drank on the our beach we wouldn't have to get up and go anywhere, if  ya know what I mean.

 It can be a bit expensive on Grand Cayman, but if you check things out BEFORE you go, you can easily find affordable solutions.  For example, this turkey wrap was around fourteen dollars.  We asked if we could split it, and they graciously brought two plates, each with fries and a pickle. Pictured is my half, and it was more than enough!

We swam.  We snorkeled.  We napped.  And we did this.....

 Sting Ray City....

 We have actually done this before, but back then we had our kids, and at least one adult (you know who you are), screaming and climbing on top of us!  So, we decided to do it again, and it was pretty awesome.  I have to admit though, part of the reason I wanted to do it again, was for the boat ride.  That alone, was priceless.

 We went out on one of these glorious catamarans.  Part of this day trip, was visiting Rum Point, which I will post about later....

On the way back, the captain killed the engines and put up the sail.  It was so amazing!

                                                    A perfect ending, to a perfect day!

Sunsets, Kisses, And Frogs

We create our own fun in the country!

Watching the sunset...

Being silly....



                                                               Enjoy the simple things.....

Good Fences....Caribbean Style!

I'm trying to regularly participate in Good Fences link party with my friends over at The Run*A*Round Ranch.  It's every Thursday, so here ya go...

I sure wish I had been thinking more about this link party while I was in Grand Cayman.  I did, however, manage to get a few fences in some shots.

These shots were all taken at Rum Point on Grand Cayman.  You can see in the and green little picket fences.  Caribbean colors are sooo groovy.

I took a little walk while we were waiting on the catamaran to pick us up.  This was one street over from the beach.  Wish I would have taken more pictures of the houses along here.  WHAT WAS I THINKING??  Oh well, it's a good excuse to go back!

Probably one of my favorite fence shots!

Canyon Country

Recently my husband and I had the opportunity to drive out to our local canyons.  My aunt owns a ranch out there and we just love it.  As I have said before, it's only forty-five miles from home, but it is worlds away.....

Linking up with Tex over at 

It's nice to finally see the creek running!

This guy was fun to watch...the creek may be running, but he's not!  Ha
