Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Ides of March?

What a perfect day out there today! It's the nicest day in 2009 we've had yet.

Hoosiers go a little nuts when we have sunshine and a temp of 58. They dig out their summer wardrobe, and spend the day outside. I did a little raking in the flower beds, and with much joy, saw the tender, pale green tips of corn lilies, hollyhocks, tansy and tulips, hiding under the leaves.

Of course, a senior cup of coffee was in order, and the corgis wanted to have their lookey-loo at the various farm animals.
We went to see the ponies who were happily lying on the ground, on their sides, sunning. The horses did not want to rouse themselves just because the corgi kids came calling, so they'd snort and nicker in repose. It was laughable.

We moved on to the next farm on our daily jaunt, and found that farmer guy had brought back the flock of white faced sheep, and opened the door to the hen house! Oh what fun! The sheep, always in flock mentality, stared across the field wondering what the joyful yips were all about coming out of the Malibu.

The little lady hens were running in circles and pecking at the ground, while rooster guy slowly strutted his stuff in the sunshine, bleaching out his feathers I guess. When they stretched their wings out and flapped, it caught the corgis eye.

Sunshine makes everything, and everybody feel good....please, nice Mother Nature lady....may we have more?

It sounds beautiful there today, thanks for sharing it here. We've been running the AC here, the weather is warm but not horribly hot yet. There are no farm animals to be found, but my Brina went over to "the other side of the fence" to visit Allie- that's as close as we get to visiting a farm!

Remember the commercial - "It's not nice to fool mother nature" - wonder why I thought of that today?

It sounds as lovely there as it was here :) the sun was shining the temps above (Celsius) and people were in such great moods.

Spring is almost here my friend. Thank you for your kin words and encouragement in my blog. I am enjoying it and look forward to blogging and photo blogging away.

Cheers

We had a beautiful day today as well, but no signs of green yet. The ground is still frozen solid, snow is still in my circle garden, but I did get some raking done (not the entire woods, mind you - just around my little camp fire area, and around the little hay barn! I did rake up inside the dog kennel that used to be my hen's enclosure at night (rest her soul - I still miss Tina 3 months after her passing!) The pen will be used by Herbie, my Giant Chinchilla (rabbit, not a real chinchilla!) for his exercise pen. I put him in it yesterday after I freshened the litter inside the little plastic barn that used to be Tina's home. He was happy as could be, and even let me use the curry on his winter furries, to help slick them off! Yep, spring will be here soon. It is time!

Love the farm animals! I am craving that nice weather. It's supposed to reach almost 60 here today and I can't wait. I'll be working, but just knowing it's nice outside will make me smile.

Have a super day!

Yesterday I too finally got the chance to enjoy the weather! The tulips are peeking up,Spring may finally be arriving here in the Midwest! It is going to be 61 today!!!And 70 tomarrow! Sigh...I saw no fun farm animals like you and the corgi's this weekend..only a few stray cats sitting upon my new pillows and cushion covers on my porch! With their muddy little feet...Susan I may have to have you come and bring the Corgi's to rid my yard of these stray cats!

I found you on Sunday Baker's comments section, and noticed you had Corgis! So cool! I have a Corgi named Dandelion. She even has a little blog! Mostly because during her puppy days, I thought my regular blog readers on my family blog might get sick of pics of her! LOL. I just adore her, Corgis are the BEST. IF you want to meet her, her blog is www.dandelioncutestcorgi.blogspot.com

Y'all come back now...

Everyone is special, and counts!
