Get Back To Basic Living




Life is tough, but living doesn't have to be


1/17/08 - It's been a while since I've put pictures up here. I try to include them in my blog every chance I get, but I thought it would be nice to get better at keeping these up to date - it's kind of a New Year's Resolution. So here you are - the first pics of our homestead in 2008. And it's snowing! This picture is out the window to the side of the yard. Click on the pics for a larger view.
I took this earlier in the day, and we probably had about 3 inches of snow at the time. This is a picture out the front window. Boy, that little bird bath looks pretty lonely out there by that tree.
This is out the back window. Bernie's thermometer hangs on a tree so he can easily view it from his lazy boy chair, when he finds time to sit in it.
I just took this picture a few minutes ago. The sun is going down and the snow has just about stopped. I figure we ended up with 5 - 6 inches of snow. This is from the side of the yard, looking towards the front. I wrote about it in the blog, if you want to check it out.
02/02/08 - Here are some pictures I took after our most recent ice storm. This is the old stable. Click on the picture to get a larger view.
This is to the left of the stable.
Here's the stable again. Can you tell I like that old building?
This is just a picture of the woods. As damaging as the ice is, it sure is pretty.
I actually caught a drop of water as the ice melted. The larger picture shows more of the branch and, of course, the drop of water.
05/27/2008 - Well, we've had this tumbler composter for a while, but apparently I put something in it that the bears just could not resist.
If you click on this picture to enlarge it, you will see that there is a clasp on the right hand side. That clasp isn't supposed to be there. It's suppose to be on the lid that is hanging down. The bear ripped open the lid, and broke the clasp. He also left his little feet print in the compost on the ground.
And, for some reason, he went over to the box that holds the control valve for our septic and knocked off the lid. That lid weighs somewhere around 10 - 15 pounds. Doesn't look like he did any damage inside - thank goodness!
