Alright I missed the "Wordless Wednesday" because after I stumbled upon what I would most definitely have submitted I had a long busy day of listings to get hopping on. I cannot wait though another day so check out the picture below. It was taken from my truck as I pulled into my parking lot to open my office yesterday morning, Wednesday September 24, 2009. As I was talking to "The Greatest Design Girl" in the World, Sharon Horney from Candellife Graphics ( who you should definitely associate yourself with here on ActiveRain), I swear to you that Momma and her two cubs just came waltzing out of the woods behind my office and were walking right at my truck. I quickly got off the phone so I could utilize my camera portion of the phone and below is my best result. If I hadn't put my passen...

Yesterday I wrote about a fallen tree blocking our path to the outside world. Here's the link in case you missed it I've Fallen For You. This morning my husband and I went out to assess the situation. Things always look so different in the light of day and after the storm. Turns out our tree wasn't really a tree, it was a branch off the tree. The tree is still standing and in some serious need of TLC, which will have to wait till tomorrow.Here's a view of what we were looking at this morning: Here this monstrous branch still lay in the middle of the lane cutting off access to the outside world. Last night the power company said they'd be out later in the evening to cut it way and clear the lane. Seems that when they arrived they realized it wasn't a power cable after all and therefore n...

This is the view outside my house right now. About an hour ago there was a pretty nasty passing storm. The skies got really dark and it seemed as though the heavens had opened up. It was a torrential down pour the likes of which were unreal. There were many loud thumps; I figured it was thunder in the distance. Then almost as quickly as it started it was all over. When I went outside to see what there was to see, I was greeted with this awesome view. This is the only way in or out of here. That tree branch is sitting on live power wires, so we can't cut the branch away ourselves.

It's been dark cloudy and outright raining cats and dogs for most of the day. The Sun came out if only for 45 minutes and out I went for my walk along the river and my visit to the Falls. I don't think I will ever grow tired of this beautiful view. I took a few pictures to share with you, hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Yesterday was the first time we took a space at our local Farmer Market. Although it is billed as a Farmer market they really allow you to sell almost anything and we've gotten some pretty good deals ourselves from time to time. They charge 10.00 for a parking space and you're assigned two spaces for that price. That is given that you use the space in the rear to park your vehicle and the front space to sell your items. Since we have a small discount pet supply business as well as a computer supply, sales and service business we elected to set up two tables and two shelving units. In addition we set up two small displays, one had information regarding my husband's contracting company and the other with information about my home inspection business. I was very surprised with how successf...
