Oh my Goodness.....I had myself a great time this past weekend.    There was no shopping involved, no parties, no Christmas lights and No worries!

Can you guess what my Friday evening and Saturday evening was all about?

It was just simply enjoying the outdoors with my husband!

We spent about 3 hours at the Farm Friday afternoon, and about 4 and a half hours the next day.....riding the gator all over the farm.   

Friday evening was a Cold one......oh my goodness, it was cold after the sun went down.   My fingers were so cold, even with gloves on.

That evening, we saw several piggies.....but it was way too dark to shoot one!

On Saturday.....Sam and I bought some new, warmer hand gloves and they really worked.

We were waiting on pigs to come to the feeders.....(these things are nothing but pest and they can ruin your farm land if you don't get them killed out)......I guess I need to add that the feeders are for the deer, but pigs seem to ROOT the deer away.

I looked up and I saw a deer standing way down by the woods.....and suddenly, a buck made it's way out into the open field.  

One good shot....and the deer was down.   
Great meat for the freezer!!!

Great Fun....out there in the midst of nothing.

I really need to do this more often.   It felt so good to get away from the hustle and bustle of this time of the year.
I completely enjoyed every single bump that I encounter on the gator....and every single tree limb that I had to dodge to keep from getting wacked in the face.

One thing that really caught my eye, were the gorgeous Red
Birds that seemed to be everywhere.  I love Red Birds!
They were beautiful...

Taking in all the nature around me....spending time with the love of my life and enjoying the cool brisk air....was a true Blessing for me.

Hugs Y'all....

Oh how wonderful! Spending time together, in one way or another's the most precious.

Sounds like an awesome weekend. This time of year, especially, we need to unwind (unplug the Christmas Machine--so to speak) ---and do something different.....

I found that MITTENS did the trick for me and my cold hands.... I can keep my fingers together --and they warm each other....

When our golf course had some trouble with those stinking hogs, they put out some HUGE traps and caught a bunch of them. Then of course they killed them. You are correct--those hogs are NASTY creatures...

Merry Christmas. Are you going to see the Airman this month???

Hi Shug!

What fun!! I agree with you, spending time with your hubby, hunting, enjoying nature...that's what it's all about! I'm so glad you got to share that time with him!

I know that the pigs in Texas are horrible and cause so much damage. They're a good thing to get rid of. Kudos on the deer! I love deer meat, it's one of my favorite things, you will really enjoy it this winter. I think deer roast makes the best gravy ever.

I loved your photo - those golden tops on the trees are so beautiful!! It just looks so serene and cozy! Isn't it good to get away from all the holiday hustle and bustle?!

Have a great week, Shug!

Hugs and Love,

Sounds like you had a great time! I loved growing up on the farm in Ohio, lots of pigs in the pen but no feral pigs there. But I know they're a huge problem down in your neck of the woods. We've got a lot of deer here by us, outside of Chicago, and they do they best to destroy my flowers, etc. Glad you dodged those tree limbs! :-)
