April, May, and June

More pictures!

I’m not much of a web mistress so my formatting is custard.  This is April, May, and June. The pace was a bit less frenetic for me whenI started working at home. and eliminated three hours of commuting to stumbling through the kitchen, tripping over dogs and men to my office. Life was humming along at a nice pace, We would go to auctions on the weekends and as the weather turned warmer I took a short hike in a recreational area just down the road. It was a triumphant feeling. June was prep for summer and Mr. C’s departure. It was a bittersweet way to start my favorite season.

We spent a lot of time at auctions in April. I”m not sure what a Butt Gauge is so I took a picture rather tried to “win” it for a cheap laugh.June was prep for Mr. C’s trip to New York and the best thing I could do was stay out of the way.  Poor Piper was a little beside herself for a few days, worried her papa would forget her. I was hopeful he would forget her because the house isn’t as lively without an australian shepard getting into trouble, looking for treats and snuggles.

Mr. C is the master at seeing treasure in the unusual. Or so he says.

The rabbits and the prairie dogs came out of hibernation and there were suddenly baby bunnies everywhere. Gracie was quite the huntress. This baby had no fear and Mr. C picked up and tried to find a safer place than in the middle of the road through the property.

AFter 2.5 months Gracie finally let me take a picture! Such a sweet girl.

The thistles came out and brought gold finches and meadow larks as we waved good by to Mr. C and Piper.

About Laura

When my nest emptied I moved from the big city to a little big town to tend to a ramshackle yellow house on the edge of town. These are my Yellow House Days.

      Yup, we live on the road to the Devil’s backbone. It was so impossibly green this spring, too. Oh my goodness we live in such a beautiful state, don’t we?
