Now I'm upset!!!

My camera decided it is not going to work today....

I haven't taken pictures in a week or so and now that I am finally in the mood and actually had a cute subject .... "it" says "NO... not today sweetie, I'm tired, not doing it!"

It acts like the on/off switch isn't contecting or something ... I don't know, but I'm not happy! I really wanted to post some new pictures too.

Here are a few that I took in December but for some reason or another I never posted.

On one of the coldest days of the year Dawson went out the front door and started checking to see if there is anything interesting going on over at the neighbors house.

He didn't see anything that interested him over there so he started looking to see if the mailman is coming yet... He always has cookies for the dogs.

Ace says "To H$LL with the mailman ... he'll be back on a warmer day and I'll get my cookies then."

The goose on the other hand seemed to be enjoying the frigid water hole behind the barn.

I have to figure out how to get my camera fixed so I can get a real update posted.

Gone but not forgotten

Just Those Few Weeks

For those few weeks--
I had you to myself
And that seems too short a time
to be changed so profoundly.

In those few weeks--
I came to know you
and to love you.
You came to trust me with your life.
Oh, what a life I had planned for you!

Just those few weeks--
When I lost you.
I lost a lifetime of hopes,
plans, dreams, and aspirations...
A slice of my future simply vanished overnight.

Just those few weeks--
It wasn't enough time to convince others
how special and important you were.
How odd, a truly unique person has recently died
and no one is mourning the passing.

Just a mere few weeks--
And no "normal" person would cry all night
over a tiny, unfinshed baby,
or get depressed and withdrawn day after endless day.
No one would, so why am I?

You were just those few weeks my little one
you darted in and out of my life too quickly.
But it seems that's all the time you needed
to make my life so much richer
and give me a small glimpse of eternity.

Sorry I haven't had any real update from the farm in the last few weeks, but I've been a bit under the weather lately. As soon as I figure out what is going on I'll let you all know.

First Seed Catalog

I got my first catalog of the year last week.....
Even though it is only 30 degrees outside, with two inches of snow on the ground, it looks like I better start thinking about the garden again... it will be time to plant before we know it.
My Grandfather Bell always said you should try something new in your garden each year. So what is it going to be this year?? hmmm... there are so many things I'd like to try I usually can't pick just one.
