Around the Farm and Through the Woods...

This is a very photo heavy post!! This morning after I finally got good and awake with a ton of coffee, I decided to go spend some special time with my outside babies. The weather was so nice outside that it turned into quite a morning...

I was first greeted with Bruno, our outside dog...

Then Festus...
Walked on down to see Cocoa, the milk goat...On the way to see some other animals, I stopped to take a photo of Hunter's little play spot...I love seeing things like this.On up to see Autumn. She is still eating her hay and this is not a good photo of her but this is the only one that I could get that she wasn't trying to eat my camera.
In the other fence is Storm and Sapheria, they are munching on hay too.
And Jingle Bells and Bullet, having their morning hay too...
It was so nice outside that I decided to go on around...Richard's log pile. These logs are for the rest of siding for our house...A pile of lumber and the sawmill in the background...
Just a photo of my gravel road and the blue sky...
Yummy green grass coming up in the pasture...
Then I turned and decided to walk down the old logging road and through the woods...
Lovely spring flowers coming up in the woods...
The relaxing sight and sounds of the water...
More water... I had to stop and take another break here...
Lot's of rocks and moss...
Almost back home...
So that was my morning...I really enjoyed getting out like that since I didn't get to do it much last year but I really should not have went as far as I did, because by the time I got back home my hip was burning and my leg throbbing. So I have taken it easy the rest of the day and no I did not work on my other 5 quilt blocks that I wanted to get done.
Hunter will be having a friend staying over tomorrow night, so maybe I can work on something quilty while they are playing.
Hope you enjoyed the walk...

I loved the walk. I keep telling myself that we need to do that sometimes but I always feel so guilty after.

I don't think we have that many trees in the whole state.

IF I drank that much coffee...I'd be trying to find a BIG tree for a break!

Hope your leg is better.

Great pictures! I'm glad that you got a chance to get out and walk. I'm sure your leg did hurt, but think about it... You wouldn't have been able to do that 6 months ago! You have come a long way!

Have a great weekend!

Oh, that makes me miss the east coast! I love living near family, but I do miss the pine forests. I can't go out and rake up pine straw for my mulch anymore! We used to drive up in the mountains when we wanted a fun day trip - it took less than an hour to get to the top of the Appalacians. You have a beautiful setting for a home!
