It's Dehydrating Time Again!




Thai Peppers - Oh They are HOT! And Sage

Despite the rainy spring and dry summer of 2011 here in Indy, my garden did very well.  It's harvest time which means lots of canning and dehydrating of fruits, veggies and herbs. I enjoy having enough for myself along with a little for friends and family to enjoy throughout the cold winter months ahead.

iHeartFaces - Best Face Photo from May | People’s Choice Contest

This is my Beautiful Niece Brittany.  She is such a good sport whenever I need a model.  I've been teaching myself Adobe CS5 and saw a photo similar to this one and thought I would try the edit as a teaching lesson for myself.  I think it turned out great and since it was taken around May 23rd I chose it for this weeks challenge.

Poor Bakara

It's been a "Ruff" day for us all....

Got her little ears cropped today.  It's tough now, but those ears will be gorgeous when they heal.

So Many New Babies....So Little Time

Sooo many friends are having little one's...I can hardly keep up.  Baby photography is a lot more complicated than adults, that's for sure.

Miss Bakara Diamond Temperance Young

 Born March 19, 2011.  The same day as my middle Bro Glenn.  She is only 3 weeks old in this photo and we hope to bring her home in a few more weeks.  She lives in Lovington, IL.  I searched high and low here in Indiana and our neighboring Ohio and finally found a puppy that touched my heart in Illinois.  I would drive to the ends of the earth for her. 

She reminds me so much of our Beloved Breanna who we lost in September 2010.  No dog could ever replace her and it has taken us this long to find a puppy to fill her shoes.  You will always be my little girl Miss Breanna! We love you and know we will see you again one day and we know you would approve of little Miss Bakara. 

Our hearts have been so heavy for so long...I can't wait to bring Bakara home. I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her....More pics to follow as soon as she comes home to us.
