Macro Monday--Bobble heads & Sea Urchins

I found a few new bobble heads at the flea market a couple of weeks ago & I thought they'd look good with the sea urchins!  Here's one of them!

In a Baking Mood!

 Going up to my brothers for Thanksgiving & I decided to take some cookies & bars.  So yesterday I made a family favorite--peanut butter swirl bars and tried out a new recipe.
 These cookies are called Cream Cheese Cake Mix cookies--I saw the recipe on the Just a Pinch recipe site & it sounded interesting.  You use any kind of cake mix you want, cream cheese & any other add-ins you want!  I used a spice cake mix & chocolate chips.
I should have read all the comments after the recipe before I made them.  I didn't do anything to flatten the mound of dough--they taste great, but I think would be better if they were flatter.
Live & learn--I will do that the next time I make them!

Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today would have been my Mom's 91st birthday.  This is a tough week with my Mom's birthday today & the anniversary of my sisters death  2 days ago ( it's been 16 years since Judie died--where has the time gone ? ).  I love this photo of Mom with Julia & Dylan!

Ok, so we had snow yesterday into last night--not as early as last year, but still too early for me!
It's very pretty today, but cold; the wind is blowing & the snow is trying to melt--just not fast enough for me.  But the waether forecasters are predicting temps in the 60's over the weekend!  Yay!

Showing Off!

Had a flock of turkeys out behind the house yesterday--the toms were showing off for a few hens--spreading their tail feathers!
I think the  hens were surrounded!

And then they got bored & walked away!

We're Getting New Neighbors!

The field up above our house  is having new fence posts put in for more pens for more bison!  if we don't have on the TV or music we can hear the machinery going " thunk, thunk"  Pounding the posts into the ground.

I took these this morning --out of an upstairs window--it seemed like most of the time the posts were going in right behind a tree so it cut off my line of sight!

Some of the machinery being used!--Good use for my telephoto lens!
