Here It Is September!

Hello, all! Hard to believe it’s already September and Fall isn’t far away. Summer’s been full of ups and downs, it will be good to move on to a new season.   Here’s Zelda in slow motion, cooling off on a hot day:       We had some new arrivals from Fluffy and Smudge!         On a very sad note, all of our beautiful ducks were killed, probably by a fox. We’re beyond devastated! I’ve shown this “talking ducks” video before, but wanted to include it again in memory of our sweet duckies.       Thanks for stopping by, and please subscribe!       Share...

A Lot Has Been Going On!

This will be a longer post, but I hope it makes up for the lack of posts lately! First, I haven’t mentioned before that I’m taking Dressage lessons twice a week. Here’s a picture from a recent lesson. Lakota is such a good boy. I used to be afraid of him! Ha ha!     Another horse-related announcement: I have a new project horse! Megamove has been retired from racing. He will be retrained by my riding teacher, Anna Toomey. We’re excited for a new challenge! Isn’t he a beauty?       Now that Fall is officially here, it has cooled down slightly. The animals have been outside more, enjoying themselves. Here’s Shade, trying to hide in the grass.   Monster is always up to something. I really can’t...

Lots Of Summer Fun

I hope everyone is enjoying the last few weeks of official Summer. My human children started school once again. There’s quite a few animal videos in this post, their lives go on the same no matter what time of year it is!   Here’s Jack and Zelda, playing together on the front lawn. I’m not sure who’s winning!     It Isn’t Summer without playing in the pool.     As you can see, the ducks have really grown!!       Finally, here’s Zelda with the first skateboard we bought her. Either she’s suddenly afraid of it or she thinks barking at it will make it go.     That’s all for now! Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE.     Share...

Summer’s Almost Over, But We’ve Been Busier Than Ever!

It’s hard to believe Summer vacation is almost over. It will be nice to get back to a set schedule, but it isn’t easy to let go of those unscheduled, lazy days! The chickens have been growing and establishing their pecking order. Gandalf is the clear winner in the Rooster group. He’s a good leader and looks out well after his little flock.  Unfortunately he and Spike never came to an agreement, so after a nasty, cutthroat fight, Spike was moved to his own pen nearby.       Typical for Summer in Florida, it has been raining non-stop most days! Zelda really doesn’t mind running outside quick for her potty stops, but I love buying her doggy clothes and she doesn’t seem to mind too much. Doesn’t she look cute?  ...

A Special Surprise!

I have exciting news today. I’ve joined a group of like-minded writers this past week. They’re all very nice and encouraging, we’re hoping to help each other get writing done and, ultimately, get published! More about that later. Right now, I’d like you to welcome our group Admin, Ted Roach. He’s nicely agreed to be my first guest blogger. Be sure to check out his site and give him some feedback! Enjoy:     Animal Lovers have a BIGGER heart! When Robin reluctantly agreed to let me provide a guest post to her blog, the same topic kept coming to mind. The influence that our four legged children have on our lives impacts the way we handle many situations. Those who do not have animals in their lives have a difficult time...

Schedule? What Schedule, It’s Summertime!

Of course Summer is more relaxed, less rushed, less busy, right? But it’s also much easier to become distracted, to stay with a schedule, even to get things done. It’s also a great time to learn new things. I signed up for an online Seminar about writing and publishing, so I’m very distracted and off schedule. However, it should soon lead to getting things done! In the meantime, here’s a few photos for you to enjoy. Rain showers and storms are becoming a regular thing again. Typical Florida Summer weather.       It seems the tree frogs are too hot to hide themselves properly. This one’s above the shutter by a window.       The cats get lazy. I threw a cat treat to Monster, but he didn’t notice it...
