MOTHERS LITTLE HELPERS



  Another bed making game : 
    





"Come on with the top sheet already"

                                        






"get your finger out of my mouth"




 




This is Max on his back
All four feet are pushing
against the sheet.
(Of course Mollie
 had to be kept
out of the room for this to happen.)
and then....







Mollie had to get in to the act.





Can I help you Mom????

WORTH WAITING FOR

                     

                              Early one morning 11 years ago
             our builder called us to meet with him
               at the building site of our new home.
          



We were met with a beautiful sight.
The mist arising from the water
had frozen on the branches of the trees above
and the surrounding shrubs.
It looked as though all the trees
had been encrusted with diamonds.





I have waited all this time to see this again.



And this morning...
There it was in all it's splendor.






Not quite as impressive
because it didn't reach the tallest branches
as it had 11 years ago,
but beautiful nevertheless.
TREE BLING !!!

MOLLIES NEIGHBORHOOD PALS



"Randy and the terrors"
Three  Jack  Russels
Who are always in the attack mode
( initially )




We used to be afraid of them
but now we often do our
long  walk with them.



Randy does an amazing job
keeping all the leashes untangled. 
Lexi, Skoshi, and Duke.





                                           
                                   Sophie                                 Conner

Gruxie                                 Bernie


Bailey


Baileys dad and I always stop to talk




Last but definitely not least
SPARKEY !!!
She just luvs Sparkey.
He has the most beautiful face


A very handsome boy







Mollie never leaves him alone


Sparkey is very tolerant..
On a good day they romp and romp

I've come to the conclusion
that Mollie has more friends than I do.
Everybody loves Mollie girl.

( There are five others who are away
for the winter. )

FARM GIRLS

This past weekend was spent
visiting two farms
whose owners
are either family or friends




    Saturday            
 I went to Bee Haven Acres to visit
The Bee Haven Maven
and
her hubs,daughter,and grandson.

I was "greeted" by the Bee Haven Maven herself,
happily chipping away at the ice
trying to free up the frozen horse manure.
Trust me,she was NOT happy ...



The more cheerful greetings came from
Moonbeam


TomTom




and
Bobby





After careful evaluation of the situation
I decided it best to head up to the house
(my bladder agreed)
where I was greeted by many dogs
and
the younger generation.




We spent a fun day drooling, crawling, playing,


and working on my blog header.
I have to say that I probably
participated  somewhat in each of those activities.
Hubs came home and we enjoyed a lunch of
cheese and turkey pannini sandwiches
and mixed fruit (farm grown) 
I always enjoy my visits to BHA

Thanks for your hospitality


Sunday I went to a friends farm
 to meet her  new donkey


"Shorty"
(Shorty is the one on the left)
What a sweet girl she is...




Shorty took me on a tour of her home
and  asked me if
I thought that someday
soon she might be able to have a little sister because



  Maddie

who used to be a show horse, 
 has been sold
and will become a trail horse.
Shorty will be lonely.
I guess time will tell , Shorty





Just keep being your sweet, patient self
and the lady on your back
might hear your prayers.

Thanks  Karen


All in all, it was a fun weekend
and
I'm a little tired

Today I went to visit
the guru
of just about everything


I love your email and comments.  See how they make me smile!


She was sweet enough,
persistant enough
and
talented enough
to
create this wonderful
New header and background
for my blog.

THANKS BEV

And thanks to Hubs

Trail Boss Jack

For lending her to me
For the day

COLLECTIONS.....HOW DO THEY START???


Fairies?  Elves?  Sprites?

Years ago while shopping with Beverly
I found this cute  Fairy




Since then Beverly and friends
have added to the collection






 






I had no intention of collecting
these dear fairies
but they have certainly
surrounded me with their whimsy

I guess that's how collections start
