Summer Front Porch Sitting

by Kay~Kacey on 8/5/2014

I love summer. I love the pretty flowers lining my front porch. This year we have shorter sunflowers than last year, and some pretty dahlias and mums.

I love the way they brighten up the front of our home.

I don’t think a woman can ever have enough pretty flowers!

I love sitting in our red adirondack chairs on the front porch and just enjoying the summer evenings.

Yes, I love my home, why do you ask??

Oh, here were the sunflowers from last year. Very pretty, but fell over right after this and browned out.


Yet More Icy Life

More snow. More winter. But SuperGuy is having a great time.

He’s been busy plowing the driveway. The street. Anything with snow on it!

His truck got frozen in the ice storm. Like an hour to chip it open frozen.

Since my car can’t make it out of our driveway or gravel road, we then moved my car out and put his truck in the garage.

Half of the garage is full of boxes that we’ve moved over from St. Louis. No place for them in the house until we get the lower level finished this spring. So, only one vehicle in the garage at once. I figure my car will be cleared off and ready to go sometime in the springtime…

Yep, I’m so over winter. I just stay inside and write or take photos.

The Ice Storm

by Kay~Kacey on 2/3/2014

Pretty tired of winter. I know, you hear me say that each winter. But this one has been so cold. So much snow. So much ice. Two more snow storms predicted this week. I’m so over winter.

But, of course, ice won’t stop me from going out and taking photos. Never! Pretty sure this first one is my favorite.

Now, on this next one–what’s up with the berries in the dead of winter?

The grass was completely frozen. I considered hauling the hose out and making a skating rink…not sure SuperGuy would have approved.

A frozen thistle–I thought that was kind of pretty, in a winter cold sort of way

Of course, it’s hardly a post without a puppy photo. Murphy went out in the ice to retrieve is ball.

Stay warm and safe, my friends.
