I'm Still Alive....

Yes, I was down with the cold/flu most of the week and actually missed 2 days of work! The other days, I'd come home and sleep on the couch til bedtime, with not even enough energy to "blog", so you know I had it bad! I'm still coughing and stuffed up a bit, but am definitely on the mend!

Here are a few more zoo pics, probably the last ones I'll add from that trip.

1st Pic-a pretty bird (I can't remember what kind)
2nd Pic-South African Fur Seal coming up for air
3rd Pic-a cute little Burrowing Owl sitting on a branch (shot through glass)

Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty....

More zoo pictures today! At least it's a change from the usual farm animals! Keturah didn't have her riding lesson this week due to icy conditions, so for this week, you'll get a break from the horses and I'll highlight the zoo animals.

2nd-Caracal Lynx
3rd-Bengal Tiger

The lynx and tiger were shot through glass, so the tiger isn't as clear as it should be, but this is the best I could get!

A Face Only a Mother Could Love....

Or a photographer!

Here are a couple of shots of a cute Rhino, who we saw at the zoo on Sunday. He was walking around and kept looking right at me, so I figured he wanted his picture taken. I got some awesome Lion pictures too, that I'll post soon too!

I upgraded to Photoshop Elements Version 7.0 yesterday, so am trying to learn how to use the new format...I only got the upgrade so I could edit my RAW camera files. I either had to upgrade Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, so I chose the Elements as it was alot cheaper than the full blown Photoshop and does everything I need!

Enjoy the RHINO!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Valentine's Day! Kevin bought me a wide format printer, (how romantic, eh?)so I can print photos up to 13" x 19"...pretty cool. I have yet to try it out! We also had a nice lunch at Shoeless Joe's today too. For supper, we plan to have our usual Saturday fare---homemade pizzas while we watch old episodes of House!

Today's photos include:

1st-Nikki peeking through the fence
2nd-Harmony the Mule
3rd-A very pretty horse and
4th-Nikki having a snack before class

It's Been Awhile

Sorry for not posting in sooo long...I've been busy doing my card-making...can't fight that creative urge! Plus, Brooke had friends over on the weekend and I've been trying to get to the gym now and again too!

I recovered from my push into the snow by the bad brown horse! I felt like I was in a car accident for quite a few days, but felt better by the next Saturday in time to fight with the horses again! They were on their best behaviour this week---except Andy, who is always looking for treats (he usually gets them too!).

SO, I have more horse pics...sorry, but I don't have much of a life other than that!!! ha ha. I wish I were kidding...I am hoping to get out hiking on the upcoming long weekend..I better anyway, I'm going stir crazy stuck inside!

Here are some peek-a-boo shots taken the last couple of weekends:

1st-Nikki peeking around the corner
2nd-Fiddler peeking out behind the bars
3rd- Gandalf looking for me and my carrots

Happy 14th Brookie!

Here are some more pics of Jerome...He has got to the be the most photogenic horse on the farm...Really, he is just so darned cute, plus he seems to like posing for his pics. At least, I think he does....These were taken last Saturday.

Yesterday it seemed even more bone-chilling then last week, plus I got shoved into a snowbank by a horse that got spooked, so that didn't help my day either and today I'm stiff and sore from the experience. I'll try to get out of the way faster next time! (Hopefully there won't be a next time!)
