These are my new Cows for Cow Time! They know me now and they immediately come to the fence to see me. While they want to lick my hands, I just want to rub their necks. So the battle for Cow affection is on! "Red" is the leader, I think, and she wanted all the [...]
On Saturday, we revisited Mirror Lake outside of Highlands, North Carolina, and discovered a place where residents can pull their canoes up and leave them. I'm sure many return often at sunset and paddle out into the lake. They were all over the shoreline placed beneath Balsam trees and Rhododendron. One look at this pretty [...]

She gave me a challenge and that was to start doing photography around the house, especially during this time of treatment and recovery.
