Up, up, and away...

Up, up, and away…

The final countdown.

Three more sleeps, and then I’m up,up and away!!!

I cannot understand how one person can be such a mess of emotions… Super-excited. Stressed. Worried. Sad. Fortunately, I’m not feeling all of that in equal measure!

I am super-excited. I’m starting to pack today, which is not something I normally do. I usually leave the packing to the last day, but this time I can’t help myself. I want to get on that ‘plane, and fly off to far-away places, and of course, to my daughter!!!!! Cannot wait to spend some quality time with her, to see where they live, and how. And of course, to explore new places (for me!) with her and her hubby.

I am stressed. I haven’t traveled on my own for a very long time, and it is a veeeeeeerrry long trip… Another reason why I am starting to pack now, is for the fear of forgetting important things, which stresses me out too. And I’ve got a few important things to do here before I go, and I’m not sure I’ll get it all done.

I’m worried. I do believe that I’m the only one that can look after my cattle the way I do! I know I’m probably wrong, but that’s just the way I feel. I’m worried to leave them and not be there if something goes wrong.

And I am a little sad. It’s sad that I have to leave my SO* here and go off on my own. He is the reason why I haven’t traveled on my own for so long. I know I will miss him terribly.

But all in all, I’m ready to go! Its been some time since I’ve been off to explore a new country, and Canada has been on my list of ‘places to see’! And I’m sure that once the wheels of the ‘plane leave the ground, I’ll be all excited, and forget to be stressed, or worried. Maybe just a little sad…

SO* Significant other


Road to everywhere

Posted on

It’s weekend folks!!!!

Some of you might have plans (exploring, meeting friends, chilling), others might just take things as they come, but either way, I hope you road leads you to interesting places!!!

The road to where ever you want to go… πŸ™‚




I’ve noticed that I’ve got quite a lot of shots of ‘nothing’.

Some of you might know what I mean by that without an explanation, but for those of you who don’t – Β I’ve taken shots of things that I thought might make an interesting shot, but then it didn’t, or it only sort of did. And it falls under no category like ‘family’, or ‘landscapes’, or ‘ cattle’. Β All of this happens of course, while exploring the limits of my abilities and creativity. Oh, and those of my camera… πŸ™‚

So I thought what I’d do is bore you all to tears with some of these pictures of absolutely nothing. And fill up some space while doing so.

My straw hat. I’m supposed to wear this on the farm, to protect my skin…but I forget it most of the time. πŸ™‚ (One of my very first random shots with new camera)


Concrete sleepers. I took this pic 2 days ago when I went off looking for things to photograph. (Playing, in other words…) πŸ™‚



This was taken with my Samsung, quite some time ago. It is a dried up mud hole, which I imagined at the time to be interesting.


We had some very old roof trusses sanded down, and we were quite pleased with the result. We’re not sure yet what we’re going to use them for.


Sand and stones, also taken some time ago with the little Samsung.

I could find a lot more, but I hear you yawning, so I’ll stop right here!!! πŸ™‚
