Blue Skies coming my way....

Talk about perfect, yesterday was a glorious day, perfect in everyway..
My dh is home this week and we are doing much needed spring clean up around our
New England homestead…

(my road)

I live in a small one traffic light town.
The population is about 4000 it has almost double since
we built our saltbox home more then 20 years ago..

This picture is for Penny of lavenderhillstudio.… she posted about how she had
woods all around her house. I left her a comment and told her I had so much lawn that I nicknamed my
dh Forest Gump… This is just the west side…of our house

Look at that sky...
More lawn and then my donkey pen..
As I said the town keeps growing the land beyond the
the tall tree in the picture has just been approved
for 39 homes...
All the homes will be on 4 acres or more but still it's time for me to

Here are my four brown miniature donkeys. Monica, Sicily, Sassy and Marty..
as well as my son and his dog... Reebok....
Most people believe the donkey to be stupid and stubborn..
They are stubborn because they are smart..

Here is my spotted jack Spooky..

He is still shedding his winter coat..
He is trained to stay in our yard , come when I call, will return to his pen on his own when it's time to
to be locked in for the night...
We had a mailman that often said that he was better behaved then a lot of the children on his route...
Well I guess it's time for me to go back to work...
it's another wonderful day..

You live in a beautiful place. How sad that 39 new homes will spoil all that natural beauty. I would probably want to move, too.

Miss Rhea said...

Wow, you are Blessed for sure to live there, it is just gorgeous !! Who mows all that grass ? lol That would be a full time job !!

Fete et Fleur said...

What a beautiful place! I was drinking in all that blue and green splendor in great big gulps. Your donkeys are adorable. If I were there I would give them each a kiss on there sweet noses.

Oh can I come live with you ;-) Just beautiful. Clarice

Charlotte said...

Looks like a great place to live, but I'm a city girl at heart. My Dad would have loved where you live. I notice your music isn't playing either. Almost all my songs are gone. What's up with that site?

Carol Anne's Boutique said...

Oh my, how lovely it is where you live, you must enjoy spending time outdoors so much!

You have such a charming and beautiful blog, I love the music you have playing too! Thank you so much for visiting my blog.

Love & Hugs,
Carol Anne

p.s. Your Spooky is so cute!

So much green my eyes hurt! I live in west Texas, so far since January we have received less than one inch of rain. Yes I said less than one inch of rain! So as you can imagine there is not alot of green here, mostly dirt & brown burnt grass. You are truly lucky to live in such beauty! Enjoy while you can!

ginger at enchanting cottage said...

WOW! It is beautiful there. I am sure where ever you live you will make it beautiful.

It's been delightful here in the Midwest lately. I love our old farmhouse and the neighbors we have but I wouldn't complain if we had a bit more land =) Blessings... Polly

Lori said...

Oh what I wouldn't give for all green and no neighbors to be seen!! Can you tell I live in a city?LOL Just beautiful!! Lori

Regina said...

Hello Louise
What a wonderful place!!
Your donkeys are so sweet.
Have a nice restweek my friend

Julie said...

Spring finally came to Bismarck (very late) and now it has been raining for almost two weeks. But we will take it in drought-ridden ND!

I apologize for not visiting your blog lately. I haven't been visiting anywhere. Real life intruded, big time. But now I am set to have a fabulous summer, which includes getting in touch with my blogging friends.

I am going now to read the posts I missed. I hope you understand when I don't comment on them.


Alice W. said...

Wow! How amazing! I have a very teeny tiny yard so I am super jealous! ;)

Joy at Cupids Charm said...

Oh your land is soooo beautiful! Thank you for posting on my blog for the jewelry giveaway so that I could follow your link back to your blog. It's beautiful! I live in a downtown urban environment where homes are on top of each other. I'd give anything to be able to look out my window and see land as far as the eye can see. I hope your view does not change with the new homes coming in. I can understand why you would want to protect such a treasure! Have a lovely weekend. ~ xoxo Joy

Lynn said...

You have a very beautiful place! I like the thing about Forrest Gump. Someone is indeed doing a fine job mowing, though. :)


Natasha Burns said...

Oh what an incredible place you live in, the rolling green grass has me so envious!!! We have no grass, the very little we did have has gone since we aren't allowed to water it with the drought we are in here in Australia : ( so I love seeing your grass. I could almost smell it, love the smell of fresh cut grass.
Your miniature donkeys are gorgeous! I didn't know there were minature donkeys - my mother in law has miniature ponies, they are so sweet aren't they!

Donna said...

Thank you for visiting me and leaving a comment. I finally got around to come visit you!

You have a beautiful place and a beautiful blog.

Love that little Spooky!

What a wonderful, wonderful place. I grew up in a no-stoplight town, but it was on the prairie so of course what not as verdant as your paradise.
