Always a first time...

Last night the Oscars were on. I've never watched them. Bobbi and Jayme came out with some friends and watched. I mostly laughed really hard at all their comments. We used the list from the Herald, that Erin Swaney drew the Oscar for, and had a contest on who could pick the most winners. Bobbi won.

A day with the boys...

Hudson and Boden hung out at my house yesterday.
Hudson gathered the eggs that my chickens are finally starting to lay. They played outside with the little tractor, fed the horses and chickens, sat by a cozy fire and later, watched a movie with Ashley when she came out.

On wings like eagles...

Yesterday I looked out at the pond and there on the ice was an eagle trying to get a dead goose out of the ice. I grabbed my camera and telephoto lens and quietly stepped out on the deck. I was able to snap a few pictures before it flew away but now I wish I would have just watched from inside the house because it was quite a sight. He sensed me as soon as I stepped out so I only got 1 blurry, hurried shot of him on the pond and then two as he soared away. I must say, it was majestic.

If you live in a place where you see them often, then perhaps it is hard to understand how exciting this was for me, but, I just still can't believe he was on our pond and soaring around our house.
