A Pleasant Saturday...











Hello! This post will be a little confusing.....the pictures are totally out of the order I want them in, but we'll make do. Anyway, yesterday (Saturday) was pleasant!...wow, I sound so extremely cheesy. Starting with the 6th picture from the top, where Daisy is eating hay, those are the pictures I took yesterday morning. The sun was shining and it was so pretty out....you really can't capture it on camera. The picture of Daisy grazing was taken yesterday afternoon. We rotate her between 4 grass paddocks, and we let her go in that one for the first time yesterday, so she was really happy. Now, the first pictures of the cat were taken at the same time as the picture of Daisy eating grass. We are opening a German restaurant this summer, and we have to grow hops for decorating the outside seating. My dad was putting rope on the side of our house so the hops can grow up it. Well, cat's LOVE string, and our cats thought that big thing of string was awesome! It was so funny to watch them play with it. The fourth one down shows Groenemeyer with the string-he crouched and bolted into the bundle, and then he ran away trailing it! The other one is just Genevieve playing and sitting on our bird feeder, watching the action.

I also had a very nice ride yesterday morning with Stephanie and her Appaloosa mare, Shania. We went riding on my road and my trail and her trail, and it was a lot of fun, and both horses liked to see another of their kind! More pictures of that will come later, in another post.

man, I wish we had that much grass. gr. thats making me jealous. What are hops, btw? and if they're for your restaurant, why are they by your house? That made me confuzzled. The cats are so cute. Just the other 'day' they were so small. :(

Check out my blog when you get a chance! And Oreo's too!

Hops are plants made into beer....we're growing them at our house and when they're big enough we'll hang lattace in the ally way where the outside seating is and the hops will grow through the lattace...

Terrific photos. You and your Mama have such special photography talents. I enjoyed all your photos.

So why are you growing and hops for decor. Why not some other kind of herb, flower or plant?

Will you be helping out with restaurant, too?

Wish we lived closer when it opens. My husband is German and he can't get anough of good authentic German food!

We will have outdoor seating at our restaurant and we are going to put lattace as a roof over an alley we are using, and have hops grow into it, like vines...we've seen it at a friend of ours and it's REALLY cool. :-)
