Welcome to Fern Valley

Here in central Alberta prime farm country,my husband Martin and I work together raising beef cattle and Appaloosa horses. Fern valley appaloosas have long been known for their quality of temperament conformation and color.I have recently rediscovered a love of writing and have published 2 collections of poetry. "Telling Tails" and Tails Trails and Campfire stories" . I look forward to a future spreading my wings as an author and as a horse woman .

No Smoke on the water, but we had fire in the sky!

I went to the Tack sale in Stony Plain today , great turnout, and I did well with sales of my cards, and a few books as well. Every time is different, last time  no one was interested in the cards, but maybe closer to gift giving time...
Anyhow had a nice time, Deb came to sit with me and help  so we visited to help pass the time and keep from running around spending all the profits! LOL 
Then home for chores and to take salt out to the cows , that had to wait a bit as suddenly the sky changed and we had a late fall  thunder storm, with the wildest skies I have seen in a long time !

It was over  fairly quickly and I did get the salt out, then  back it came so into the house  warm and dry for this kid!
Lots to do tomorrow so hope it is  a nice day. and hope all are enjoying their weekend !
Stay safe

WOW. Alberta, your weather is sooooo
well, spectacular.
I likes my boring Ontario.
I thought my annuals could handle one hard frost in pots.
Well, they didn't, and today it's almost 60 degrees unFahrenheit!!
Nothing sadder than flaccid impatiens, I tell ya.
Okay, there ARE things that are sadder/flaccid-er, but sheeesh.

Stay safe, young lass.
Scritch my boy!!

Flio would like to pant at Winston.
pant, pant. pant.

Thanks for grabbing your camera to share all that with me. Amazing. And I have to confess that big storms make me nervous, so I prefer to look at them in photos rather than in person. Perfect!

My goodness, it almost looks like a forest fire out of control and much too close.

Wow, those are pretty. I haven't seen nice looking skies in quite awhile.

Janice said...

That is awesome. I haven't seen any of your cards....maybe something that should be in my store?

Nicole said...

Is that real fire in the sky? what caused that??

Nicole,we had a weird thunder storm and light show, I am guessing it it the reflection of the sun going down on the wet clouds, It was absolutely stunning! the pics don't even do it justice

Beautiful sky pics!!! And, I have to nitpick a little bit here...what the heck is it with everybody talking about "late fall"??? Fall just got started on Sept. 21st - remember? Technically, it's early fall! Sheesh, time goes too fast as it is!! We just had our first rainfall of the season on Friday, and it's rained a little every day since then. I sure hope we get a little more of our beautiful Indian Summer before God forgets to turn the water off!! :)

true enough Cing spots, but around here we can have snow and have it here for the duration by the middle of Oct too so ...
