OK so I've been kinda just sittin around in different parts of are farm lately and just listening lookin around watching nature since i still cant walk very good or far but listening to the wind and watching the animals it's amazing how much i think I've missed and i grew up like this but never noticed just how everything clicks and works together in nature and in life just thought i would share the moment with you all i was doing some soil samples in a lot of land we haven't planted in couple yrs and looked up to see 2 hawks diving one grabbed a fish out of the pond but dropped it and the other one grabbed it up off the ground and they both perched and shared the fish. I have never seen that before

there are really cool looking birds i wonder how they would do in texas that would be cool running around the farm as are turkeys are kinda ugly, i like that link you did a good job on it i like that blue color on them

no reason they wouldn't thrive in Texas … but be warned … they get quite loud during mating season … there are about 29 running around here … drive on over and pick up a couple ;)

Moments like that are special windows into the beauty of nature. You were blessed to see something so unusual.

Sometimes our minds just need to take a time out. I used to commute during the sunrises and I carried my camera and enjoyed my long drive because I would stop and snap some shots.

we live in the boonies too we mostly grow corn, alfalfa, wheat, beans, we have cows,pigs,ducks,chickens,horse,and a bunch of natural critters some of which we do not want but hey there here they leave us alone most of the time so they can stay to. well keep your Dr appt at one time i had six appt a week that was when i was my worst now I'm down to 2-4 a month. most hospitals offer dieticians and diabetes classes to help you some are free but most insurances will cover them if not

I hear you brother … I am now down to metformin (500mg 2x daily) and lisinopril (5mg daily)
plan is to be off both by the end of the year (Ido take a low dose asprin but will probably continue that)

I try and spend a minimum of a half hour out doors just soaking in the sun, watching the Peacocks
(9 new chicks to watch) and "listening" to nature and meditating … fortunately we only have a few neighbors but I am quite sure they think I am a bit weird.
