365 Pictures 14-27 April

Hello all,
Well it has been a busy two weeks.  I started out well taking pictures, then I broke my good camera (UGH!!!).  I was very upset, but it turned out good because I wanted to upgrade was just waiting until 6 months down the road.
We were able to fix our sewer problem, so I guess the Lord doesn't want us moving yet, which is fine because we were hoping not to have the expense of buying a new house & moving for another two years.  So here are my two weeks.

 Starting out with one from the trail cam - this buck should have shed his antlers a couple months ago.  All the bucks have new ones growing, which means he has done some type of damage to his antlers where they grow.

New recipe - will post it at my cooking blog  
Crockpot Lasagne.  Got the recipe off Facebook.
Before cooking - suppose to have mozzarella & Parmesan cheese on top, but I didn't have any mozzarella, so used extra Parmesan

After cooking - this was wonderful & so easy to make.

 YEAH they are fixing our sewer problem!!! Short story - had to seal off old line & put in a new one, but at least that nasty stuff won't be coming back into the house.

Last regular night of Awana - going to miss working with these kids, but the summer break is nice.  This was the night I broke my good camera :-(

I picked this one from the deer cam because it had a turkey, raccoon & deer in it.

 This is where I spent my day (using my Africa camera for pics).  Miracle Hills Ranch - Christian Retreat.  The owners where away on vacation & their daughter who runs the ranch was on a school field trip with her daughter.  I was asked to hang out in the office & answer the phone from 9am - 3pm.  They had some secretary work for me to do, but that didn't take all day, so I was allowed to bring some of my own stuff to do.  Very relaxing day, the phone only rang twice.

Turkey hunting season started this past Monday.  This is the first time we could go hunting this week.  We were up at 0500 & the temps were 29F.  We put on three layers of clothes & brave the cold weather to get nothing.  We heard turkeys to the west & east of us, but none of them would come in.  I did get some great pics which I will share later in the week.

This evening was our high school senior graduation reception.  Our Women on Mission group (which I'm chairman of) is in charge of the reception & decorations.  We had a nice time.  This is our pastor's daughter, who enjoy the strawberry punch very much, as you can tell by her punch mustache.

 A regular part of my mornings this week - sunrise over the Wal-mart parking lot.
I am subbing Kindergarten all week, so this is how my mornings start out.  My husband & I carpool.  He has to be at Wal-mart by 7:00am & I have to be at the school by 7:30am, so I drop him off.  I get done around 3:30pm & he is done by 4:00pm, so I of course I do the picking up.  Works out great, saves gas, & some time together.

 I had a lot of pictures I took from this Saturday waiting for the turkeys to come in.
This is a blue teal duck swimming on the pond near where we sat.  He was migrating through, stopping for some bug breakfast.  Blue teals migrate Venezuela to Canada.

Awana award night - I asked a lady to take pictures for me with my small camera.  I forgot I left the setting on Sunrise/Sunset so the pics didn't turn out the best.  Here is the Spark group I have the blessing of working with, missing about 5 kids.

Thursday 25 April, 2013

Another pictures from Saturday - this is a wild bee hive on our neighbors farm across from our driveway to our farm.

One more from Saturday -
 This Blue Jay was having a fit because a squirrel was eating at the feeder & he/she wanted to be sure we knew.

My new camera came in last night!!!!!  We went out turkey hunting again.  My last chance for Spring Turkey season.  Woke up at 0445 it was 49F out 10 degrees up from last week, out to the blind by 0505, nice size Tom walked by use at 0525 out of shooting range - grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.  Oh well, I was able to play with my new camera & got some nice pics instead.
As we were leaving, we heard these to Canada geese coming off the pond, so I got my camera out & got several shot as they flew by.

Another American Gold Finch waiting his turn to eat.  I love how this camera picked up the dew drops on the grass.

Well that is two weeks caught up.  I hope everyone had a great week & starting to enjoy the Spring weather.  God Bless, see ya next week.
