Oh my goodness~! Look up~! Look to the West~!

Late this afternoon I was out scrounging around in the cornfield looking for corn cobs the combine left behind for me to pick up for the birds. There is way too much snow out here and I can't find any. Why didn't I do this on a day that was warmer and no snow.. As I'm walking out here I see that we are going to get another beautiful sunset. I'm so glad I brought my camera.. You never know what you are going to see and then wish you had it with you..

The house you see in the West is a neighbor that lives a mile from my house. I should make a copy of these pictures and take them over to their house. It's a beautiful setting with their house and outbuildings and then the sun setting..

Here we go it's getting darker.. The clouds were so wonderful and it is freezing cold outside.. 8 degrees right now..

Today I just sat in the house and crocheted on my hats I'm making. I have one more hat done and 1/2 way through with the next one. I thought maybe the tree would come out of it's box today, but not today.. maybe tomorrow.. and then all the Christmas decorations will come out too ..
ta ta for now..from Iowa
Have any of you tried the Hartz Infusion shampoo/conditioner dog shampoo yet? I have been using it for couple weeks now and I can't believe how soft my skin is and I use less lotion on my body. I know ~ my husband is still laughing at me.. He says I'm desperate.. Well, I am...If I can find something that works and keeps my skin from being dry and it does work~! . I put this product in my soap container that I use by the sink to wash your hands with. He's using it on his hands...SHHHH~! don't tell him.. lol
Sometimes we have to be sneaky.
Have a great Tuesday evening~! ta ta for now from Iowa 8 degrees and dark...ha ha..

Those photos would be a WONDERFUL Christmas gift for your neighbors! It's really beautiful!

Laughing about the dog shampoo. I joined your blog sometime after you must have posted about it. :) Hey, whatever works! I know lots of folks use the horse mane & tail shampoo and conditioner as their own products.

Alright. First of all, I can't believe I haven't commented on your blog before! :/ ::hanging head::

Secondly, I have had the dog shampoo on my brain and have been going back and forth on whether or not to try it. Now that you have made mention again, I must get myself to the store. If I am brave enough and the shampoo works as weel as you say (for the skin), then I will blog about it and give you due credit. Ha!

Beautiful photos, btw.

Gorgeous pictures!!!

Love how sneaky you are about the soap! lol Sometimes we have to be sneaky like that though...

I replied back to your comment on my blog. For some reason I didn't get your comment in my email and I didn't find it in my spam. I might have accidentally deleted it. Sorry!

LOL that the hubby doesn't know. I still haven't tried it - forgot all about it! I need to go get some.

I am SO glad you dropped by my blog and as a consequence I have found you. These photographs are superb. I agree with texwisgirl - they'd make a great gift for your neighbours.
My Hubby also retired a few years ago....hard work at times isn't it?
I have a particular weakness for Eeyore and his friends too. Hubby is a definite Eeyore and I am a 'Tigger' although I am the size of 'Pooh' at the moment.:)
I am really looking forward to reading more of your blog and have signed up to follow you.
Lovely to meet you.

Thank you so much for following and commenting on my blog -- I'm following you now too. Always good to share winter misery with a fellow Midwesterner. :) Dog shampoo? Now I've done alot of crazy things... but not that, yet. Too funny. I can tell I will be enjoying your blog.

Hi! Hey, thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! It gave me the opportunity to come and view your wintery photos of Iowa, where I grew up... in fact my daughter and her family (4 grandkids) live in Iowa. I haven't lived there in decades, but that evening sky looked familiar to me. Stay warm!!!

Beautiful photos, Annie. I looked at your profile for the first time and realized how much we have in common, like a love of Fernando Ortego and The Sound of Music!
