“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

Another One....

What a pleasure it has been to have a series of days full of sunshine.

 By the time I went to the barn it was already in the 50s....much warmer than yesterday.
 Had a 2pm appointment in Batavia with my dentist.  The usual 6 month check.
 Love the house where the office is located.
 Moved more brush when I got home and then made some chicken salad for dinner.
1 grilled chicken breast, 2 apples, 2 stalks of celery, grapes, craisins and nuts.  Served it on a bed of organic mixed greens with a toasted English muffin on the side.  I need to do this more often, it was delish.
 The pups and I headed out to do chores....

 when Dave arrived to pick up our lawn tractor and hand mower.  We should have them back by the weekend and by that time we will need to mow the lawn.
 Berlin and Abbe were curious.

 Tucked the girls in by 7.  The temperature in the barn was about 63.
We hit the low 70s today.  I think it is safe to say that we are really into spring.
Night all.


  1. It's so nice to finally see some colors in the yard isn't it. I'd say Spring is finally here!

  2. fabulous post! Love the light!!!

    also your salad!

  3. I am so glad that you are finally getting some decent weather.
    Your chicken salad looks yummy. What a great combination!

  4. Back to mowing the lawn that not to long ago had so much snow I am sure you like I forgot we had a lawn:) I am ready for it. Awesome shots. Hug B

  5. It's good to get the fine weather, you certainly had enough of snow back a while ago. Can I ask, have you heard how Moon is doing at the new stables?

  6. Love seeing flowers in your garden! Your winter flower strike worked!

  7. Glad to hear you are rejoicing in the sunshine. I know exactly how you feel. The salad looks great but for some reason I have this crazy aversion to mixing meat and fruit. No idea where that came from.
