Taste (Tasty)

I love sweets. I love vegetables (except those nasty green peas and cantaloupe) so Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge of Sense of Taste caught my attention. Enjoy!

experiment I am wholly in love with cupcakes so I tend to buy by the half dozen….

This Land is My Land

Though Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is the verses from the song “This Land Is My Land” it just reminds me of one of my favorite songs “Home” by Dierks Bentley.

This Land Is My Land:

As I was walking that ribbon of highway, 
I saw above me that endless skyway: 
I saw below me that golden valley: 
This land was made for you and me.
 I’ve roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps, 
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts; 
And all around me a voice was sounding: 
This land was made for you and me


From the mountains high
To the wave crashed coast
There’s a way to find
Better days I know

It’s been a long hard ride
Got a ways to go
But this is still the place
That we all call home

So I just had to combine them for this challenge. Hope you enjoy!

A Few of My Favorite Things, second verse

As part of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for My Favorite Things, Verse Two – admittedly I could find just a few photos for the verse:

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels, Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles, Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings, These are a few of my favorite things.

But here are a couple of photos for you to enjoy!

War Eagle Mill – history in the making

While visiting the War Eagle Mill in Rogers, AR we were able to see the mill in operation. The mill sits on War Eagle Creek and the current mill building was built in 1973 – the fourth structure to be built as the first 3 were either washed away or burned over the mill’s history beginning in the early 1800s,  including its role in the Civil War.  They now provide great mill products and a slice of history to go with them. You can even order online! And let me tell you – their hot rolls were delicious when we visited and I might just have to order some myself! And they have gluten-free and organic products – since they focus on all natural products.

So I am sharing some photos, including some of the mill in action. I like these because you can tell the wheels are spinning in the photos. (And it is part of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Man Made)
