Blog Circle: Holidays

The theme for this month is Holidays.  We don't do much for Christmas, we usually just have a lunch, so there's not around home that's holiday related.  I took a walk up in the woods and took some pictures of spruce, which seems pretty holiday-ish to me. :) Be sure to check out Dalayna's post!

The barn a few weeks back before we got too much snow.

And a fire for good measure. :)

Things I Love Monday

In keeping with being a poor blogger, I'm doing a "Things I Love Thursday"-style post on Monday. I have free time at school on Mondays, though. So. That's what.  Here are some things I've loved lately: 

  1. Over dyed oriental rugs: Clover showed these to me a few weekends ago, and I've loved them! Basically, you dye an old oriental rug a bright color. I now want one very badly. Oh well. Somehow I'll manage without one. :) 
  2. "Royals" covers. They're just good! First, the original. The first time I heard this song, I was driving to Burlington to go to the doctors. It played 4 times. Nowhere near as much as Roar, which played, in all honesty, a whopping 14 times. But 4 is still enough to get me to notice it.  Then, Justin found this bluegrass cover. So good. And THEN he found this version by a really tall clown who is creepy but can sing really well.  He's weird. Just don't watch the video. Anyway, good songs, in my opinion.  
  3. The road trip I went on with Cody. The funnest thing ever.

Flowers! That's pretty self-explanatory. They're just pretty. My pinterest is chock full of flowers lately.  Whoops. 

And lastly: I just found a whole post of photos from July that never got published. So here are pictures of July! 

Awesome sunset! 

I made jam on day, and decided I had to take pictures of it, since it was so ridiculously red and summery. 


Some of Tori's flowers.

And it's now wintery, not summery. It's weird to look at pictures of flowers outside the house. Now there's just dead stalks and snow. But I still kind of love it, even if everyone thinks it's weird.  :) And that's what I love today!

Blog Circle: Night

 The theme for this month's blog circle is night.  I was going to do more star pictures, but when I was on the road trip with Cody, I saw a lot of sunsets and sunrises, and had a lot of fun nights! I also got to meet Lisa and Tessa, who are a part of this blog circle! Between hanging out at Lerwick's, going to Laramie, driving across Nebraska, sleeping in the El Camino in Vermillion (and the Upper Peninsula, and Canada,) staying with Forsbergs with JoAnna, seeing folks in Fargo, playing games in MN, and lots of driving, nights were pretty fun!

The first night, we went out to pick up some cows and bring them to the pivots in Nebraska. So awesome!

 Gorgeous sunset!

I finally got to ride in a semi! 

Night falling when we were building  a corral in Pine River, MN.

Sunlight, Night Skies, and Puppies

The sunlight was awesome yesterday afternoon, the puppies are getting big, and I took some night pictures!

Blog Circle: Self Portrait

We got back from our third convention in a row yesterday. Altamont was my fifth. So my self portrait isn't inspired or anything, but I took a picture in front of the bus, since Dad brought it down yesterday. Also, I got a very red sunburn yesterday, between mowing the lawn, moving wagons for Cody, and going for a walk. Oh well!

A monarch on my car, a teensy toad, sheets, and haying with the new baler! Also, 100th post! Woot!
