4/30/2012 Things change!



Okay, lot of things change every day, but the love for your children and grandchildren… that is NOT one of those things!

I am going to save this one for when I need it, when Emily is in middle school…. just when the aliens are starting to suck her brains out I want her to do know how cute and sweet she was.

I know that cuteness and  sweetness is in the eye of the beholder but… oh, my!  Don’t you just want to gobble her up!

4/28/2012 Do you see what I see?

Do you see what I see? You have heard the stories about the salmon in Alaska.  How they are so thick that you can just reach down and pick one up.  How they jump into the bear’s mouth.  How they come into the rivers in the millions.  Well… all of that is true, but it’s not true all the time.  It is very frustrating when you can see the fish and you can’t catch the fish! 

4/27/2012 Something to look forward to!

Looking forward to things is such a delight.  We anticipate Christmas, visitors coming, special occasions and here at SunnySide Farm we look forward to the arrival of the summer butterflies.  This beauty is the Zebra Longwing.  We have only had a few visits and never a glimpse of the white caterpillar with black spots .  I will do the happy dance if I see one on the passion vines in the back pasture.

4/26/2012 Bright Sunny Sunshiny Day!

Six years ago I took these angel’s picture.  Unfortunately the beautiful field was not allowed to continue with the cycle that created this show.  Now it is a horse trailer lot, full of hard ground and concrete….. but these two boys are still as sweet and adorable as they were then.  Good job, Mom & Dad! 

4/25/2012 Keep it simple!




I have said to myself many times… I can  add this… but then I ask myself… why? Just because I can doesn’t mean I should.

Nasturtiums in a tin pot on a tree stump. One of the hardest things in the world to do is “Keep it Simple”.

4/24/2012 What’s wrong with this?

Evin’s Mill, Tennessee has a long and hard-working history.  The property records show a working mill since 1824,  this mill was built around 1939 and only used for two years.  The end of an era but not the end of its usefulness.  Now the host for weddings, birthdays and business events. Folks gather and enjoy the rustic, rough, worn and delightful surroundings.  Most of us would not want to live with the old, cranky and inconvenient but we enjoy the character… but just for a while!  What’s wrong with this?

4/23/2012 I’m sorry…



“I’m sorry”… that’s the words that I used on the card with this picture. They are two very important words. 

They might be a plea for forgiveness or that they might be a show of love and concern.  You know JESUS gives us the chance to say “I’m sorry” and I am so glad!

4/22/2012 Promises….

Promises have been made and given since the creation.  They are a part of our human core.  Promises keep us motivated.  Men and women have promised to love and be faithful to each other for 1000’s of years.  Everyday let all of  us remember the promises that we have made.
