Thank You (Deb) For The Award
and More of My Favorite Photos...

*As always, click on image to enlarge *

Deb, at Tylerfarm Homestead surprised me with this blog award this morning. Thank you Deb! Um, but Deb, I just noticed that the link to my blog, from yours, does not work... ;-)

According to Deb:
The Uber (synonym to Super) Amazing Blog Award is a blog award given to sites who:

~inspire you
~make you smile and laugh
~maybe gives you amazing information
~is a great read
~has an amazing design
~and any other reasons you can think of that makes them Uber amazing!

The rules of this award are:
*put the logo on your blog or post.
*Nominate at least 5 blogs or more that for you are Uber Amazing!
*Let them know that they have received this Uber Amazing award by commenting on their blog.
*Share the love and link to this post and to the person you received your award from.

There is NO WAY I'm going to try to narrow my favorite blogs down to just 5 (I know, I'm a coward!) so please, if you're on my "blog roll" on the sidebar on the right side of this page, consider yourself nominated! The reason I have links to all the blogs on my sidebar is because they are all great reading and have lots of lovely photographs. Although, if I could only nominate ONE blog ~ it would be my 'adopted sister's, Corrine, at Crosswinds Farm Not only is Corrine a beautiful, sweet, kind and generous woman, she is a hilarious blogger, a dedicated craftswoman, and a great sister. (that ought to be worth at LEAST a pumpkin cake!) ;-) Please visit her blog ~ you'll be glad you did.

My planned post for today is more of my Favorite Photos of All Time. I had a wonderful time going through my albums, this morning, choosing pictures to use. I ended up selecting 97. I guess I really do take a lot of picutres! Don't worry ~ I won't come close to posting them all here. at least not today....

Here are just a few of my favorites. Some make me laugh and some make me cry. It was an interesting stroll down memory lane...

My kittens, Daisy & Lily came into my life at Just the right time. They kept me smiling through some very difficult months after:

The Letter
Fortunately, it's very difficult to stay depressed when one has two kittens in the house!

My delightful, Angora goats were living in the backyard that year as well.
They brought many smiles to my face!

Saying Good-bye to "My Big Black Puppy" was heartbreaking

As was saying good-bye to the most beautiful Shetland ram I have ever known

But new friends have come into my life...

and brought me much joy.

Bellamica has firmly entrenched herself in my heart

and proven to be a great help around the place!

And then there are the LAMBS!

Those delightful creatures ~ gifts from my beautiful Ladies ~ that have so brightened my life...

And give me much to Look Forward to...

DREAM says...

"'Specially ME!"

That's right Dreamer!! You'll always be my special lamb...


  1. Awww, thanks Sis, I'm blushing. I think that is worth a pumpkin cake AND maybe a few salted nut rolls!
    And thanks for posting the photographic walk down memory lane. I am sure that a lot of us remember all of those events that you shared with us and the emotion that went along with each one.
    Love and hugs,
    Baby Sis

  2. Yes, I remember all of that and more! I am so proud of you for where you stand proudly now. :-)

  3. I remember when you first posted the pictures of you with your sheep. I thought and still do think they are a beautiful representation of a woman's individuality and independence!! Women gain their strength I believe through the hardships and responsibilities they encounter and take on; they should never doubt their strength and their ability to achieve; regardless of where they are in their life. Thank you for being who you are!!

  4. You have been through so much and have conquered it all! You should be so proud ~
    Each of your photos tell a story, some happy - some sad.....all beautiful.
    Thank you for sharing the journey and being such a role model for women everywhere.

    ps....sorry about the broken link - I'm new to this hyperlink stuff - all fixed :)

  5. Yup...the ups and the downs of life. And thank ewe so much for sharing yours with us, Nancy. Look how far you've come in such a short time - and all the better. :) You have many blessings about you. Way to go, Girl!

  6. What great favorite is you nose to nose with the lamb....

    Hi Nancy!

    I was gone to Madison half the week so just got caught up on all your blogs. Your "Get Out the Vote" blog was AWESOME!!! And I love the current Best PHotos one, too. You deserve your blog award!!

    I left for Madison a little early and went to Susan's and bought myself a DRUM CARDER!!! I did up some blended wool mohair batts in my hotel room at night and now am SPINNING them!!! What fun!!!!!

  8. Great pictures! They all tell a story and those lambs are just too cute for words!

  9. Tough couple of years eh? But look what you've achieved! Here's to getting through no matter what, and to a happy woolly future :o)

  10. What an amazing journey you've had to get where you are now - and I suspect more amazing adventures to come! Either way, it is a joy and a privilege to have gotten to know you in the past couple months.

    (p.s. you have the cutest baby pictures ever - not a one of them looks like Winston Churchill!)

  11. Hard times...hate 'em. You have definitely come out on top. (I know, the animals help!) :) I am glad you chose to follow your dreams and keep your farm and all your wonderful four-legged and two-legged (how could I leave out the chickens!?)friends.
    I love your blog and look forward to reading every entry.

  12. Love your blog - the sheep are beautiful and Bellamica is gorgeous - the prettiest collie I've seen. Is she all border collie - I've never seen one with that lovely tri-color coat. Thanks for the photos - they're day brighteners!

  13. The only constant in life is change. You are truly an inspiration to us all. May we all handle the ups in our life with such grace.
