My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..
Christmas at Yachats, Oregon
We rented a lovely home through Beach Vacation Rentals..and will go back for sure in the summer
We had a fabulous time with some of Clay's family Here Sister in law Jackie and me in the Beautifully painted house. Bright colors through out.. No way would you feel gloomy here in any weather. Clay and his brothers Steve and Pete
We enjoyed the waves crashing onto the shore and the weather was mild. A bit of morning fog and as expected a bit of rain..Took many seaside pictures and here are a few.
This is Face Rock at Bandon , Oregon. ( do you see her face looking up to the sky?)
* WARNING The next photo may be disturbing ..
While at the beach sadly a dead female Grey Whale washed ashore, I had never been so close to a whale before...The Marine Biologists were examining and taking samples to determine what caused her death.
The Lighthouse in the fog.. and a few beautiful Elk we saw on the way home. Making our trip more eventful.
Here they are at 2, 5 and 6 years old... Oh My! Where has the time gone.. Since it is Christmas I had to post this. It is one of my favorite pictures...
They have grown to be very responsible, respectful , compassionate and productive adults.

Yes I am very proud of who these people have become....
I have tried before to tame my hens. It is hard to do unless they are handled a lot when they are baby chicks.
This is Lily. She comes running to me anytime I happen to open the back door..In fact she often stands at the door waiting... It is funny to see her come a running. The other 4 hens quickly follow but only Lily will wait for us to pick her up.. We stroke her feathers and gently release her to eat the treats.. I do love my chickens.. it is cold here dipping below 20 at night so I make sure to feed the "girls" warm treats before they retire to their coop. They really love warm noodles, rice and oatmeal.. I make sure they get the left overs. I have not had to put a heater in their coop..they seem to huddle together just fine.. Their water however is heated and inside the coop. Yeah, I think my "girls" are special and spoiled too...
Twas only December 2nd a cold windy day but we had to get started on Christmas Decorating... We decorated the outside of Blue Sky Farm today. Now when it gets dark we can Turn on the switch to reveal the Magic! I will post more pictures then...
We will be putting "bird friendly" items on the outside porch tree for them to nibble on throughout the cold winter. Leaving the tree standing after Christmas.
Since we will be away for Christmas We decided to focus on the outside only this year.. and enjoy the beach house where we will bring simple decorations to warm the cottage...Tomorrow I will be attending a Christmas Artisan show that has been enjoyed in Klamath Falls for 44 years! We want to also attend the Snowflake Parade later this week.. ..cant wait.. more pictures to follow...
