Notice anything?

The first thing you may have noticed is my lack of blogging. Really? This is only my fourth post this month….I think.

Then, all of my blog posts only include flowers, one cute dog, fishing, and other outdoorsy things.


My summer has been taken over by MY LAST SEMESTER OF GRAD SCHOOL! Can I get a ‘Hallelujah!’ or ‘Praise the Lord’???? Geez….I would say that it’s been a long road, but it has really only been a year, which in my opinion is busting it to finish this thing for that small, but helpful pay raise! I probably tell Colby a gazillion times a day that I am absolutely sick of doing school work. That’s sad to say when you’re a school teacher.

In relation to all of this, my comprehensive exam is this Friday! Say what?!?!? So, my entire last year of work is riding on this one test. How unfair is that? That’s the way of the graduate world though, so I must push through. On top of that, my first two chapters to my research proposal are due. Luckily, it isn’t as bad as actually submitting it to a real review board for a real study that is going to be conducted. {Abby, you have my utmost sympathy}


As a result of this taking over my life, I have had no desire to really sit at the computer and share what’s happening in my world. That means I certainly have no desire to do any home projects around here. Trust me, there are plenty. Before long, Colby is going to kill me for bringing in “junk” to fix and make beautiful. Hopefully, after this is all over, I will have some energy to put forth on them.

In the mean time, you’ll just have to deal with more fish and plant photos. Sorry! The family farms are my favorite escape from the world!



Bream buster = Bass! Pure luck!


Please ignore my get-up! The boots came in very handy, so I could get closer to the water. It was so mushy around the edge of the pond, and I am the kind of girl that does not want any mud near my feet. Ugh!


Note to self: Get my butt out there and pick some blueberries! Every person needs a stock of blueberries in the freezer. You never know when you’re going to need them!


Seriously? Can you end a day with a prettier sky? The photo doesn’t even do it justice either.

Hope you all are getting along alright! Keep enjoying that summer!

  1. Good luck on everything! I know you will do just fine. I hear ya about not wanting to be in front of the computer another minute. I feel that way too. But, I sure do miss blogging. There just isn't enough time in the day.

    I love the pics and the boots!
