Don't Let Them Tame You

I had a heckuva time deciding between two themes this time around. Then, inspiration struck. I don’t have to choose. I’ll cover both themes because they do relate to one another. I think you’ll agree.

    Shery: That "tween" time as you say does get stuck in our craw. Especially if you’re from a northern climate where winter sticks its icy tongue on the pump and won’t let go. Your pictures are always wonderful and Spring WILL come. Hang in there girl.

  2. Cathy says:

    I must admit my springtime happy place has always been Winnie the Pooh and all of the woodland creatures. Their free and easy lifestyle soooo makes me wish I lived there among them! I hope spring comes soon, too, as I resemble that lady you posted on this blog as well. Hang in there…it’s only for a short time now 🙂

  3. April says:

    Thank you for this post! Beautiful words and inspiring pictures. You are delightful! Put on your sunglasses, gear up in your coveralls and head out for a tromp outside. It does a girl wonders…even in the snow! Have a wonderful day!


  4. I hear ya Sister! I’m in OK so we are ahead of you in the season, but it has still been a bit dreary with clouds and cold temps. I did see my first forsythia yesterday, and the daffodils are out. It won’t be long. Good luck with your pony!

    I enjoy your writings very much-but the photographs and images are most appreciated- isadora duncan? so very special! outdoors rocks!

  6. Rosanne Brown says:

    Shery, I feel for you as far as the SAD, but you also have had
    loss recently…but brighter days are on their way!
    Anyone else who suffers from depression, please ask your MD to have your vitamin D level checked. Too many pills get prescribed, and all one might need is nutrition!
    Hope you are feeling up to par real soon !

    my comment above is incorrect-mine is the one which mentions isadora duncan

  8. Katie says:

    Happy thoughts to you inspiring Lady. You should plan a glamping vacation to the North Coast of California. Our winter lasts about a month (the down to this, is you never get to go down). Even the rainy days are gorgeous with blue skies that cloud over, lovely sunsets. I always think we get out best weather when the tourists go home.

    We’ve got a spot here that would always welcome fellow glampers.

  9. Meredith says:

    I am right there with you Sheri. Here in Va. We should be well into the beginning of spring. Our willow trees have baby leaves and the redbud are working really hard to get ready for their show. The weatherman is telling us we are having more snow this Sunday. Aaarrrggghhh! Keep dreaming about your new babies and getting out to train and ride them soon! It IS going to get warm!

  10. Anna-Marie Sibon says:

    I first want to say, I always enjoy your pictures, whether vintage or photos. We’re experiencing tween-time right now in North-western Washington. One minutes it’s snowing, the next it’s sunny with blue skies, that hale and than who knows what. In the lowlands, we had no snow all winter and here on Whidbey Island, it was even mild, sad for me because I love snow. But now the weather doesn’t know how to make up it’s mind. I love snow and clear freezing days, but when it’s time for spring and summer, I want it to come right a way!!

  11. Joan says:

    Shery, as I read your wonderful message and am now writing this, it is snowy, WINDY, COLD. Yes the calendar shows it is Spring but I have come to realize what Spring can be – some of best moisture to get things growing. Oh how I wanted, this week, to be out tilling, prepping for some planting – well God had some of this wonderful moisture stored up for us so it is inside I will stay, working on quilts and while doing that I am dreaming of the Vitamin O to get started soon. God Bless and Happy Easter.

  12. Terry says:

    Can you imagine, I got a job managing a garden Center!! Now I look out of my greenhouse windows and watch it snow!!

  13. maureen says:


    I tried to rush spring by going south for a few days. Took in a couple of baseball games and visited with my sister. The desert was beautiful, all green and in bloom. Came home to a 60 degree temperature change and then a huge snow storm, which we desperately need. My just budding rose bushes were just as shocked as I was. All in good time! I’m making a quilt with flowers on it, so that will have to be my "gardening in front of the fireplace" for now.

    Many blessings and smiles.

Red & Ready

February was a trying month for me. But, trials & tribulation can’t keep a farmgirl down for long. We have our hearts set on brighter tomorrows and better things ahead. Speaking of ‘better’, RED is better! So, with that in mind, I’m puttin’ my RED on. I’m ready for a refreshing re-start.

    Luv your speckle enamelware bird feeder…
    We have been having Geese passing through, I love hearing them honk… no bluebirds or meadowlarks yet… but the magpies are busy grubbing. Yep, Spring is almost here!

    Had a mama deer & her 2 toddlers feed on the apples/hay & corn we put out in the trough.. luv watching them as they cross between our home & barn… See, Spring is in the air! :>)

    Another wonderful visit – thanks much Shery. Love hearing about the chicks – we got some a few weeks ago and they are doing very well – we are hand raising them. Thanks for all the great pictures. God Bless

  4. Lorrie says:

    I smiled all the way through your post. I don’t have any, but chickens have always looked like pure fun to me. Hearing your descriptions and seeing your pictures makes me feel like I get to be part of your lifestyle. Thank you! I have a new goal now. They always say try to be as good as your dog, but now I will add trying to be as happy as a chicken!

  5. Meredith (Hereford girl) says:

    Just tickled to hear you have a Hereford bull amongst your ladies! We have a lovely set of black baldies by our Hereford bull that we are so happy with as they are turning one year old. Good luck with yours! And with your "Apple" girl too!
