This is the "Hanging House" that we walk by at the back fence line. Years ago the Momma of the house hung herself. I can relate.
Every now and then my mother-in-law, the kids & I will go walking in the woods. My in-laws own around 80 acres, including the land and house that we currently live in. I could literally throw a rock and hit their house. (I'll go into that whole thing in a later post.) Anyway, my MIL walks nearly everyday and most times the kids walk with her. It mostly depends on if anything new is on the Discovery channel as to whether or not Moosie goes. That girl loves her Mythbusters.
I normally don't walk with them. Normally, I'm working on laundry, supper, knitting, pulling my hair out, etc. Of course, there's the whole walking with MIL too. I'd rather not. However, last week I decided to ditch all housework and walk with the kids. It was a comfortable temperature around 70º and the sun was shinning. I really do enjoy walking through the woods. I love the smell of the pines and the way the hills just roll into one another. I also love the fact that it's not snake season and there's no worries that one will follow me home. There are often deer and raccoon tracks to point out to the kids and hey, it's exercise too - something I don't get enough of.
So, here's some pictures that were taken on our recent walk. I hope you enjoy.
Take care - Me
There was a full moon this day. Some call it a children's moon.
This is Moosie's horse. This is the 3rd horse that Grandaddy Chief has bought for her. His parents were award winning ropers. He's now resigned to having a little girl that sings at the top of her lungs riding him. So far, this one has not bucked her off. We hope to keep it that way.
This, of course, is me. Rokimus has gotten some strange idea that it's fun to take pictures. I don't understand where that's come from. Certainly he didn't pick that up from being the darkroom with me, sitting on my lap as I work in Photoshop or helping me lug my camera equipment around as a toddler.
