  4. I would really love to live in your world. I don`t have allergies so I would be good...hope they clear up for you soon.
    We used to drive by a farm that had a `cow horse` this horse was always with the `new cows`then one day no more we do miss him.

  5. Hope that your hayfever is not so bad today, Chooky. Dreadful when your eyes are so puffed up that you can't see - no scratching of eyes either, so lucky you had your drops! Great photos though :)

  6. It is great that you made a crappy situation into a positive one by taking those lovely photos-hope you get some rain and the wind dies down

    Nothing worse than hayfever to make you feel !@*%**
    Hope you have a better day today

  14. everything looks better through the camera lens. hope today is better for you.

  15. You have the gift of making every day into a something day-- Did you see that I turned my swap material into a something ?

    But this is for you although I know you do get mad at times, but underneath these virtues shine through your blog.

    "Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
    It is to have no trouble. It is never to be
    fretted or vexed, or irritable,
    to wonder at nothing that is done to me,
    to feel nothing that is done against me.
    It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
    and when I am blamed or despised,
    it is to have a blessed home in myself
    where I can go in and shut the door
    and kneel to my Father in secret and be at peace,
    as in a deep sea of calmness, when all around and about is seeming trouble."
