around here......

here are a few pics from today.... 
 Forgiveness is good.
Running free across a field is good for anyone's soul.

The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.




Get intimate with the land. Walk barefoot. 
Admire all the pretty weeds. 

Rise before the sun sometimes.... 
Fresh air is one of the best forms of self care.
After gully washers like we've had the last few days, squish the mud between your toes. 
Pee in the woods. 
Run through the pines.

After work today, I spent hours in the rain. I put up the temp fence on the backside of the property to give the goats some new area to browse. Then I stood with Rose in the pouring rain because she's a weird one and doesn't run for shelter in downpours. I spotted a baby woodpecker struggling in the heavy rain and picked it up and held it in my cupped hands until the rain stopped. Sweet birdie then flew back into the tree I presume it fell from. Yay! Then I stood with Mr. Buddy in the run-to before coming inside to strip from soaked clothes and warmed up with some coffee... I think tomorrow I am gonna let Buddy and Rose play a bit in the same field since this bad weather should have moved on by then.... stay tuned.

midweek mixtape

 


Happy Wednesday, all! I am off to feed the crew this morning, walk Mr. Reece, and then head off to the office! I have already started planning tomorrow's 'want/ need' segment, so I hope to work on that this eve and share that tomorrow morning! Buddy is doing well and has started to let me touch him a bit more and slowly but surely we are making progress! I am hoping this weekend to allow the three to do a little playing together!

thursday's mixtape

.... I got caught up in listening to this mix, that I forgot to post it yesterday! Instead, spent the evening outside, listening to the birds, hanging with the horses, and trying to come up with a plan to help a dog. This week has been flying by, and this weekend we will meet our new potential foster-to-adopt horsey friend. He is a 21 year old buckskin gelding named...... Buddy. I am hoping all goes well......
 





Happy Thursday!

springtime on the farm....

my absolute favorite time of the year with the beautiful lush green grass, baby bunny nests, and backyard fun....

the garden is still providing us with spinach and a few different lettuces....
..birds singing and a good shaded spot make for the perfect napping combo...
daisies galore along the fencelines....
very happy hens laying lots of eggs....
...blackberry buds...
...backroad cruisin'....
...crisp sunrise walks....
our sweet little saltwater pool.......
I completely redid the horses pasture yesterday in anticipation of a possible new pasture mate for Rose and Hazel. A sweet little ol' buckskin gelding named Buddy will be making his way here next weekend!
....a view I rarely capture in a picture, this is our back yard, and the view from the pool! <3


.... yeah, one of the perks of farm livin' is soaking in the sun and having horses graze nearby. Feels like paradise to us! 


When fencing yesterday, I came across this pretty caterpillar..... 

...I hope you all have had a good Tuesday - I am gonna work a little bit on the land here after a day of work being cooped up in the office, and then hang with my Reece poolside for a bit.. Then tomorrow I should be back with the midweek mixtape!
