Weathering the nor'easter

Many of my readers live in in the Northeast, so I suppose many of us are huddled in our homes or offices today, weathering the big nor'easter that came up over the weekend. I love that word: nor'easter. Couldn't ever have used it in relation to my life until now. It has such a dramatic, romantic sound to it. Makes me feel as if I should be out by the sea waiting for a ship to come home carrying my love. I walk along an old stone wall by the sea. My long, dark cape blows and whips behind me,...

Hello all ... Finally yesterday our Internet connection was fixed, and actually stayed fixed. It was a frustrating week without it. Now I am seriously backlogged on some business I must take care of. Sorry, but I won't be able to post an actual entry to my blog until Monday. Meanwhile, I did post two new paintings at my One Painting a Day blog. One is actually painted on a tumbled, Italian marble tile. On a whim the other day I tried painting right on the tile and was thrilled with the results. There will be more of these coming...

Everything is coming alive; the feelings in the air and in the environment are exciting. Every day I look for signs of new flowers coming to life. I don't want to miss one moment, or one photo opportunity. I moved here last year in early May, and by then this place was live with blossoming trees and flowers everywhere. This year, I will capture the evolution with my camera and then my year will be complete. Sometimes at night the sounds of the peepers surrounding us everywhere keeps me awake for a time, but I enjoy the sound so much...

Good news! I just posted the Irish Soda Bread recipe at I Live on a Farm dot com. Hope you have some this weekend! Just a few minutes ago I was out with Blu having one of our morning walks about the farm, when I heard the loud voices of Canadian geese speak up over by the corn behind our willow tree. I took Blu back in the house and grabbed my camera, with a good zoom lens on it, and went back out to see if I could grab some shots of the geese. It was interesting to observe...

Sounds of springtime

His name is Blu ... our five-month-old puppy. He came to live with us one week ago, and of course, he owned us completely before his first twenty-four hours concluded. Someone in Florida rescued Blu because he began his life living in a crate in someone's apartment. He was only allowed out of the crate to eat and do his business. He made his way up to western New York after being rescued, and found his way into our home and hearts through our friends Andy and Mabel from church. Oh, such love. Such adoration circulating amongst us. [I made...
