Fun for Me & Giveaways for You!

Yesterday was so beautiful!  Some people might have thought it was a bit chilly.  But not me!  It was perfect.  I have been kinda stressed lately, so I decided to take the day off from school stuff.  Believe me I truly needed it!!!!  We went out to our land and drove around on our Mule (Kawasaki).  We took our black lab (Shadow) with us and I don't think she enjoyed it too much though.  :-(    It was a bumpy ride but it was soooo relaxing!!!!  We hired someone to bulldoze trees in our pasture  and so there are trees down everywhere!  Here are just a few things we saw along our journey

  • Deer
  • Squirrel
  • Snake (eek!!!!)
  • Turtle Shell (it was huge!)
  • Turtles 
  • Grasshoppers (lots & lots)
  • Buzzard
  • Ants (that had created a super long highway)
  • Raccoon tracks
  • Butterflies
  • Duck
  • Geese
  • Pecan Trees (LOADED with Pecans!!!!)
A perfectly relaxing day!  I definitely needed it!   How about you??? How have you relaxed lately???

Today I found a couple of giveaways that I think you will want to check out.  Click on the pictures below to find yourself magically taken to their blogs.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend & don't forget to do something fun!

  3. How fun to live out in the country! I love fall and luckily I do get to see the leaves change even out here in So. Cal. But it's nothing like the East Coast that's for sure. Glad you took a break...we all need days like those. Have a great week!
