Feels Like Spring

February 14, 2011

Oh, how I love the spring like weather. Prefect for being out in the great outdoors. We headed down to Woodville to Martin Dies Jr. State Park once again. It is one of my favorite parks always well maintained. We go to the bridge where we left off the last time we was here.

We spotted the prettiest little bird with a yellow spot on its back. It is a good chance it is a Yellow-rumped Warbler. The wonderful thing about the winter season walks is that we get to see bird that are not usually here except during the winter. CONTINUE READING…

Hunny, I want to go walking out in the beautiful sun shine!” I tell Stewart after we eat lunch. So we load up in the car and head to Sandy Creek Park.

A thick smell of smoke was in the air. Charred trees and grass was all that was left of the parks vegetation. The Forest Service recently burnt off this area in a control burn. CONTINUE READING…

The Last Valentine’s Cookies

February 12, 2011

Well once again a holiday rolls around where gifts are given amongst the family. Honestly at this point I am not real big about the secular holidays personally between Stewart and I but I thought that the kids would enjoy Valentines Day. I mean, it is about a “saint” and all, right? So we begin making cookies to decorate for the cousins. I am sick of commercialization of everything so I wanted to go hand made. 2011-2-12 cookies (4) We get busy rolling out our dough. CONTINUE READING…

Walking in the Woods One Day
February 5, 2011
After being stuck in the house for a few days I was beginning to get “cabin fever”. The sun was shining and the temperature had rose to the 50s mark. I decided we needed to get outside before I went into full blown hibernation mode.
We loaded up in the car and headed to the lake area by the community called Blackforest.
