Friday Throwback

Things are a little slow here in Nanaland this week so  I thought I would see what I was doing 5 years ago on this date on my blog.

I shared this picture of little Spike the bull. He had a perfect heart on his forehead. He was one of Bruce's calves back in 2013. I think he has since been sold.  Standing next to him is one of Bruce's cows...not sure if she was his mama or not. Since he is so close to her, I think she might be!

One of the reasons we enjoy our trips to Grimmwood is to slow down and enjoy all the nature we see there. Bruce's cattle often come to pay us a visit in the pasture across the pond. Our geese and our blue heron are fixtures we look for now. We usually catch a glimpse of them early in the morning. A little lizard lives under our porch steps. I always check to make sure there are no snakes lurking there. Those critters are a part of nature I can do without.  We are hoping our trip this week will include lots of porch sitting as the weather is supposed to be warmer. We live in hope that Spring will finally come!!

Glad you made it back to Grimmwood! It is your Happy Place!
Dean had a cow down here at the ranch back when we first started coming. That was long before we even had our camper fixed up. We stayed in a motel in Groesbeck back then. Who knew we would end up living here part time?
Enjoy your week! Is Marvin retired now?

Enjoy your time at Grimmwood, Arlene. My hubby and I just got back in from an early morning walk and we enjoyed seeing all of the different critters.

Oh my goodness, that calf is a cutie and very cool with the heart on his forehead. I hope the weather cooperates so you are able to get in some relaxing porch sitting. Will you be stitching on the porch? Enjoy your day, Arlene!
