A Lil' of This ~ A Lil' of That

If you take photos for your blog, I'm sure this happens to you; photos you like didn't get into a blog for one reason or another.

So, here's a miss-matched set of photos in no particular order ~

Cold Paws
Cold Paws
I don't think I've ever seen CS's ears up like this winter...maybe it's the cold...maybe it's her age. She sure loves being out with the "big dogs"...but the wood stove is her best friend, besides me!

Long Ears
Stetson's Long Ears
One frosty Stetson on a chilly morning.

Sunset On The Rim Rock
Sunset on the Rim Rock
My favorite rim rock. This was at 4 o'clock in the afternoon; here from the back side of the barn, the day cools off quickly as the sun disappears.

Water Trough Sauna
Tumbleweed's head looks a little fuzzy...from the steam coming up off of the water. I love tank heaters!

Rastus; Doing what he loves most
Work, work, work...that's all this cow dog wants to do!

Garden Pond in Winter

This year-round water fall/pond is in the yard of the home where I get my hair cut. They tell me they have a heater in it to keep the fish alive during the winter...and the deer come in on a daily basis to water, so they have to fill it up quite often. I'd love to have one of these in my yard...the dogs would love it too, but I don't have the time to take care of it.

I've been researching tabletop water falls...I think something on the deck in the summer would be nice and then bring it into the house for winter. Have any of you made one? I found this "How to make a tabletop water fall"...sounds pretty simple, and Lord knows we have enough rock around here!

Oh yes, welcome to some new readers: Jenny, Wendy, Paula, and Lori! Nice to have you along for the ride.

Hey, Happy Friday!!!

Love those pictures, and that Rastus IS a hard worker!

I'd love a water feature, but I need one more thing to take care of like I need....

Val said...

Nice to see just random stuff too! I have been watching steam and frost around the stock tanks this year!

We insulated one and it doesn't get frosty!!!

Fort Western Stores said...

Stetson is an adorable fella.

Janice said...

Liked them all....but that curly Stetson....irresistible.

Val said...

SE Oregon would be another thing on my list!

What a fun post! Just goes to show that they don't always have to be "about" something! :)
