News from the Farm

by Kay~Kacey on 9/2/2013

We’ve been busy. Besides the barn raising, we’ve been busy planting and watering, watering, watering to try and keep the new plants and trees alive in this draught and heat.

One night sitting out on our fabulous front porch…you know the one with the cement that looks like old boards …anyway, we looked up and saw a bunch of hot air ballons.

I managed to capture a few of them. Well, shoot them. Well, photograph them!

I mentioned to SuperGuy in passing that I wished I owned a longer telephoto lens…he ignored me…

I also got an Olympus underwater camera and we played with it. Such fun!

I thought I’d leave you with a couple of photos that SuperGuy captured and I edited of our beastly dogs. They look pretty innocent here don’t they??

This one is our little princess…at least she thinks so.

If you missed it over on my photography blog, I started a series I call The Awakening if you’d like to catch up on that. Okay, talk to you soon…gotta go sit out in our spa! (ie wading pool) and get more underwater photos!

A Day at The Unnamed House

by Kay~Kacey on 5/13/2013

So, we’ve yet to name the new house after 6 months of living in it..We’ve toyed with The Willows…because we planted a bunch of them. Or The Nest…because we used to have The Love Nest…and this just sounds more permanent than Love Nest. But, whatever. Still undecided. But…I digressed…here is some of how we spent our time at the new house this weekend.

I was busy with Murphy. You know, photographing him. Looking at how cute he was. I mean, I was BUSY.

I found some time to try out different lenses to capture these yellow flowers. I think they are field mustard. Surprisingly hard to capture…

Some of us just worked on silly stuff like planting trees. I mean really? When there were some cute puppies to play with?? And photos to take?

The Allium has just started to bloom. Total surprise because SuperGuy forgot where he planted it last fall…

Oh, and I was busy capturing the very first sprouts in my very first garden! I mean…that’s important stuff!!! Captured for eternity!

While some people just lollygagged around planting more trees. (After very helpful advice on placement from his nagging loving wife.)

I even managed to find time to almost capture a photo of Princess Maggie. She hates having her photo taken almost as much as my sister does!

So, SuperGuy continued on with his extraneous chores…

I just went and poured us some champagne and waited patiently for him to quit his fooling around with silly chores and come join me.

Life Doesn’t Get Much Better Than This

by Kay~Kacey on 3/7/2013

Seriously, can life get any better for a male??

What is Murphy staring at???

SuperGuy’s dream come true. A snowy driveway and a new tractor!

Life doesn’t get much better than this for a male. It was a bit of a learning curve for him…but he’s getting better about the whole snow removal thing. But I’d really like the snow to be all over for the winter…

He looks like a little kid at Christmas playing with his toy…

His loyal subjects wait with rapt attention to his every move.

Who knew a tractor could provide so much entertainment to so many??
