Turn Around


What a saying...I found it on Pinterest...with no one recorded as the author.
A simple sentence, but profound in the meaning. Someone, or you, yourself, set the can'ts into your mind...be strong, brave and turn it around. The truth is that we each have the ability to find our way and make our dreams happen.

The Hummingbirds Are Back!


The northern migration of Rufous Hummingbirds has reached me, here on the farm. I love feeding these tiny birds. They are a complete marvel to me...so small, and they migrate so far. It is amazing! I put out one hummingbird feeder on March 1st, and then wait to see the first bird. Many times I hear their distinctive sound and know that one is somewhere around me...before I actually see the bird at the feeder. Spring must be sometime around the corner...I am certainly tired of this long wet year.

New Strawberry Plants


I had a little time to check on my garden yesterday. I removed many dead plants and checked on the other plants. My strawberry bed looked bad...most of the plants are dead. I have been growing strawberry plants in that spot for several years and it is long past time to rotate the area. Well, this is the perfect time to make the change, get new starts, and new planting place.


I hope that I will harvest some berries like this in June - July! Fabulous!

Kindness Gives

Kelly Rae Roberts
What does kindness do? It makes the giver a hero, a special person, someone who knows that the little things that you can do have an enormous affect on another human being.  I practice showing kindness as much as possible. It helps all of us.

Have you ever had the experience of unkindness?  Have you ever experienced a tirade directed at you because the other person is out of sorts (or something). Time and time again....what do you do?

Get Strong...Get Brave...BE KIND TO YOURSELF!!!

Girl Scout Cookies

from Pinterest
Do you remember this??? I sure do, the experience of walking door to door selling these cookies to complete strangers. I detested doing it...and by myself. It is a miracle that nothing bad happened to me. I actually feel sorry for girls scouts doing this. If I am personally asked by a girl, I will purchase a box. What about you?? Good, Bad, or Ugly??
