The Morning Moos

April 22, 2009

I was out this morning and the angus were mooing away. It makes me wonder sometimes what they are communicating with each other. I took a picture of them and it seemed like they were all wanting to get their pictures taken as the more I kept trying to focus on one group – more […]

My kitchen (a work in progress)

January 14, 2009

So I wanted to post a picture of my kitchen as I have talked about it a lot with most people and I thought it would be nice to show all of you where I spend most of my time. I realize this photo is a little dated (note the Halloween decor), but it still […]

Kitchen Window

February 27, 2009

While preparing beignet dough for the Mardi Gras class tomorrow, I was struck by the view outside my window. I thought I would share it with you.

Afton in the fall

November 3, 2008

I love living on the acreage in Afton. It is so peaceful and serene. I have had many interesting things happen that I wish I would have gotten photos of. One time I had a cow at my front door and another time I had a hot air balloon land in my front yard. The […]

Peaceful morning

April 26, 2009

It is on days like today that I like to recall the mornings when it is so easy to just get caught up into a view. Sitting in the kitchen having my morning coffee and looking out over the expanse. I wanted to share what I saw the other day as I was thinking about […]

Great November Day

November 4, 2008

I went around and took some photos of the farm today as the weather is amazing and it is so peaceful out here. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. I baked up some cutout sugar cookies and need to decorate them, I will post pictures of those coming soon.

Marshmallow World

February 18, 2009

I woke up this morning and the sound of Brenda Lee singing Marshmallow World filled my head. The snow-tipped pines were amazing to look at while I sipped my morning coffee that I made with my new Bodum Thermal carafe from Williams-Sonoma. I love french press coffee and it tastes even better when I get […]

Foggy day

January 22, 2009

It was a foggy morning that we had today. By 9 am it was so dense that I could not see the fence 100 feet outside my window. After it faded, and the sun came out it left a glittery film on the farm. It was odd as it left the film on half of […]

Winter wonderland

November 12, 2008

I woke up this morning to the most beautiful snow that had fallen on the farm. It is still falling and it makes me want to have hot cocoa with marshmallows (that will have to wait for the weekend when I can eat what I want). The pines look so tranquil with the snow clinging […]

Majestic Pines 101

February 17, 2009

I live on Majestic Pines, and since I love botanicals I brought the two together. When I moved here, I thought it would be best to remove all the pine trees, but I have since come to love them after finding out so many fantastic things about them. The Scotch pine (Pinus sylvestris in latin […]

Fantastic Sunrise

November 18, 2008

As I was preparing breakfast for my duaghter, she came down and said ‘Dad, you have to see this – get up here!’ So I grabbed my camera and we peered out her bedroom window only to see the most fantastic sunrise. The colors were amazing and I wanted to share it with you all. […]

First Snowfall of the Season

November 10, 2008

Woke up on Friday with a beautiful snowfall comign down. It looked like powdered sugar was covering the trees. I just keep pinching myself at how beautiful it is out here, no matter what time of year.
