Titmouse Birds and a Cardinal on a Frosty Morning!

These titmouse birds usually feed in a
group of 8 birds.
They enjoyed taking unsalted raw peanuts in the shell
back to their nest today!

A Fawn brings Joy!

God provides joy in our lives
in brief and unexpected moments!
One is in allowing us to see a fawn, a creature
with so much emotion in its beautiful eyes!

What do you do with a tree stump?

You put peanuts, raisins,sliced apples on it
and let the creatures come dine!


I have a deer who likes southern fried cornbread and
there is one who likes sliced apples and lettuce.
We buy shelled dry corn for the wild deer that that
dine at our home.

Southern Fried Chicken!

In the Southern United States of America, we have a food dish we
really like to dine on at noon...

Fried chicken..
You take the chicken, soak it in buttermilk all night, in the refrigerator
then take it out salt it and roll each piece in flour.
Pour a deep pot half full of oil...and heat..
Drop the pieces of chicken into the hot oil and fry till it is done..

To make the gravy you pour off all the oil, except for about 3 tablespoons
in the bottom of the pot..add flour and black pepper..stir and let it turn
light brown...Then stand back a little from the pot and add 2 cups of
water..It sizzles, stir and let thicken some... and then you have homemade gravy!

We also have fried cornbread...
You blend the dry corn meal with water... salt and then mold the corn meal into the palm of your hand,then slide it gently into
the shallow pan of hot oil and brown on each side..turning it once in the pan..

Now to the favorite drink in the south...
Iced Tea with fresh lemon..
You can have sweet ice tea or
you can have unsweetened ice tea..
No one can have a southern meal without ice tea!

Now you must have good friends, and good conversation
and you can find those in the southern united states of America..
if you are friendly and enjoy people..

In the Still of the Night!

I love the night time!
Often, you will hear me saying
What a beautiful night!
Last night I was sitting on the steps
with a tomcat twirling around my legs
in the crisp, December night air
and took these scenes to share with you!

The trees were shadowed in moonlight
and the sky was visibly blue with white clouds
under a full moon at 10 pm. last night.

As I sat there taking it all in to my soul,
I thanked God for giving me a beautiful moment on his planet
Earth...and for his son Jesus Christ..that lives inside me.

In Alabama sits a quaint little cabin in the woods.
Years ago there was a dirt road that led to the cabin
but time has moved on and now there is a highway...
I wonder how many children played in the yard,
and what wonderful stories were told on that front
porch of the little cabin in the woods.

Rural Grocery Stores

The crossroads where this country store is located
is named Smut Eye, Alabama

Hayfields of Alabama!

I can just imagine a barn full of hay,
with lovely horses in a stable!

When you look out across the mountain range of the Great Smoky Mountains
you can feel nothing, but peace!

The light at the end of the tunnel!

So many times I have wanted to give up in life
and then I think of the words, There is a light at the end of the tunnel
and I keep going..

Sure enough there is always a light at the end of the tunnel,
that gives you reprieve from the struggle you are encountering
living life as a human being!

Heaven's Paintbrush!

As I beheld this view...
from within my spirit
came the words...

HEAVEN'S Paintbrush...

Baby Doe at my home!

This young doe, always makes me smile.
She got lost from her mother one day last week and she came to my house alone.
She ate shelled corn and drank water, ate some bread, and just laid down in the woods and rested for 2 hours until her mother came to find our Deer eating site in the edge of our yard at the woods..
This young doe is very inquisitive and woke our tomcat up while he slept on a tree stump one afternoon near dusk.

A Moth in Sheris Healing Flower Garden!

Today, there is a moth that has wings that resembles a hummingbird
sipping nectar, from a butterfly bush bloom!
I am not able to photograph it as clearly as I want
because I do not know how to set my camera settings
to freeze frame the Moth..since it is constantly moving its wings
and feeding..

I did catch a lizard that had caught a black wasp for a meal
on a butterfly bush in the flower garden today!

Summertime on Planet Earth!


Sheridragonfly: "I love the time of dusk and the way the shadows fall from the forest...

I love the full moon...

Nothing is more exciting to me than a Meteor shower in August.

I lie on my back and watch all the meteors flying across the sky , in all directions..

and I think to myself.. what a great universe God created for us to enjoy!"
