Field of Dreams

Yesterday my husband and I took a drive – we do that a lot.  I just love getting into the surrounding countryside to see what I can see.  I know I’m not the best photographer and my camera needs an upgrade, but I just love trying to capture what I see. It has been aContinue reading “Field of Dreams”

Around The Burg – Again…….

As I have posted before, The Burg is a small town in the mid-west.  It happens to be the county seat.  One of the treasures in this area are the other towns surrounding us.  Some are in the same county and some are not.  But most are only between eight and 30 miles away. IContinue reading “Around The Burg – Again…….”

Around the Burg…….

We had a great time with Friends this weekend.  We drove about an hour to a town that has a population of 159!  Say what?   Yes, 159.  That’s one hundred fifty-nine people. They have a restaurant that is famous for it’s pie.  The lunch was also good. But best of all getting together withContinue reading “Around the Burg…….”

More Views Around The Burg

As some of you know, I post about the area I live in, known fondly as The Burg.  Check out some of my other explorations. We moved here the end of July, 2014.  Small town, mid-west USA.  The Heartland of America.  I love small towns.  But I do like a little convenience.  The Burg isContinue reading “More Views Around The Burg”

The Sun Is Up, The Sky Is Blue 🎶

Here, in the Mid-West,it has been very cloudy for about an entire month.  The sun tried a few times to shine on us but never could do it for very long.  Well today, it is shining in all it’s glory and warmth, well, it is only 37° F when I am writing this, but theContinue reading “The Sun Is Up, The Sky Is Blue 🎶”

Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful

Hello All.  I’ve been busy with the grand-girls so I haven’t been posting very much. It has been cold this last week here, in The Burg.  Highs in he twenties and lows are well, lower.  But later this week we should be back to normal.  High will get up into the forties.  Yay! We wereContinue reading “Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful”

Transitions

Autumn is still here but the trees and the colors have definitely transitioned to a wintry look.  Sad in a lot of ways, but still beautiful. These pictures were taken in Knob Noster State Park .  We were the only two people there.  I love that, but I feel like people are missing out on greatContinue reading “Transitions”

Exploring The Burg

We had a low in the high thirties last night.  Autumn is coming fast.  Even had the heat on this morning.  I love this time of year! I saw this pretty little moth on my plumeria the other day.  I have since brought the plants inside due to the plunge in temperature.  But this isContinue reading “Exploring The Burg”

Mid West Journey

Here I am, just entering the second week of my new journey in The Burg.  The house is settling in and becoming quite the treasure.  I’m not one to run from a challenge.….. but I almost ran from this house.  If we didn’t have a perfect peace about renting this one, well, let’s just sayContinue reading “Mid West Journey”

Frogs and Skinks

Here are a couple of photos from The Burg.  Water Lilies are taking over this pond. I heard the frogs plop into the water when I approached.  Hopefully I will be able to get some photos of them. And the elusive Blue-tailed Skink……. no photos yet.  I have to be patient (not a strong suit) andContinue reading “Frogs and Skinks”
