|Vintage Snow Day|
Wednesday, January 29, 2014
|Here are a few of the residents. They look a little on the cold side. They were nestled in the farthest back creek |
out of the wind. Snow was still an issue. They are quiet and have paired up quite nicely. I am hoping to see some babies in the Spring.
This is my quiet spot. The creek comes off the lake here. It is beautiful here during every season. I love the oak tree. The bench was a bit cold to sit on today. I feel
very peaceful here.

|Definitely comfortable with herself. Love her boots!|
|She has style!|
|This woman is definitely sure who she is.|
|This woman is not afraid to try new things.|
|Trying new things even if they are a bit odd or dangerous.|
|Standing tall even when the world as she knows it is falling apart.|
|Feels good about herself.|
|Enjoys sharing her talents with others.|
|Not afraid to go off on her own.|
Thought I would share these beautiful, self assured women with you. Do you see yourself in any of them. I know I do. Take a minute this week and look at yourself. Realize what a strong and powerful woman you are. If you are a man realize and validate the strong and powerful women in your life. We all need to be validated, appreciated, and enjoyed. So tell a woman in your life just that. She is appreciated and loved!

The farmer lets them free range. The barn is their nesting site. They do not wander too far from the barn/hutch. There are now about over fifty of them. I think some of the locals have moved in too. It is quite a sight to behold.

|They are darling! Love the feather in the hat!|
|So cute! Their dresses are wonderful.|
|That little boy is adorable! Love the girls dresses. Mom was a creative sewer.|
|They look like twins. I have a doll like that.|
|Another set of Fraternal twins? Twins were rare then because of all the complications. These two look very loved!|
I am sending these out to all of you. My first freebies of the year. Siblings are important parts of our lives. They have taught us how to deal with all sorts of things. They have been our friends and often taught us how to deal with life's challenges. I love my siblings. I have been blessed with both a brother and a sister. I know I can always depend on them. They have my back. If you have a sibling or two reach out to them. Start the New Year on good terms, plan some time together. Have a reunion. Cook some food you like from your childhood. Share a book or a movie...Remember when...

The first day of winter was really something. Here in the mountains we got several inches of rain. It poured cats and dogs yesterday. Thank goodness it was not snow. I love snow, but I still have lots of things to do and snow tends to slow things down a bit. For those who got snow and ice - be safe. Ice can be very dangerous!!! Hope everyone has fun doing those last minute holiday things.

This is the season we spend a lot of time thinking about and being with our families. I thought these photographs of different families might strike a chord with you.
Families come in different sizes with different types of people. They say you can not pick your family. Well, after many years I have decided that it is about taking care and loving your family. Accepting who they are and loving them because of or in spite of. Building on that.
I hope you all have a wonderful time with your families. Build incredible, lasting memories. Stop and savor the moment. Enjoy it all.
