Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Just Another Ride Out in the Country~

A little over a week ago, my daughter needed my help while she studied for a nursing test.  She lives about 10 miles away, and instead of getting on the dreadful interstate, I took the  country roads, which are always much more safe and way more pleasing to my eye for nature too!

Lasma Arabian Horse Farms is a very large establishment en route to Brittany's home.  In fact when she turned 3, twenty-five years ago, she wanted to visit the horses in these beautiful stables as part of her fun filled birthday 


There was, of course a beautiful Red-Shouldered Hawk hunting from a tree near the roadway.  Soon the canopy of green shall hide them, making it more difficult to view them~

 There are rolling hills, dotted with cattle and big trees that hold secrets within their branches~

The fresh new glimmer of spring, is fast approaching~

Take a quick glance at the image you see anything?  

I saw it from a good distance, and pulled off the road to take a better look-see and now you can see it, right;)

This yard has a few dogs that usually run around...I am thinking that they chased this guy/girl up the tree and it was not able to get back to where it was going...silly rascal!

The husby is always saying..."How did you see that anyway?"   
I am always, always looking.  I had my two year eye test the other day and I have excellent vision.  I only wear glasses on the rare occasion that I drive after dark and that makes me happy...

Happy and safe weekend to all~
