I am a 37 -year-old woman from Arkansas who is happily married to a Scottish immigrant aka “the hubby” “the hubs” or if I am calling him directly “YO YOU!” We’ve been married for 3 years and it’s been a crazy ride, and unfortunately our finances have been beat to death in the last few years. We have two dogs and a cat, no kids. The Blog- What’ll you find: Financial Information as we try to become debt free My attempts at working and trying to maintain a home to the standards I like My adventures in learning how to sew Arts and craft projects Funny tidbits from my life including living with a Scottish person, the dogs, and other oddball things that happen to me. What you won’t find: Much on children. I don’t have kids and I can’t have kids. Recipes- I don’t mind cooking, but unless it’s something really special, don’t come here looking for the weekly recipe! You won’t find it- unless you ask my husband. If you’re interested in what you see, please follow me on Facebook or sign up for emails! Most of all, leave a comment or ask a question! I am always happy to hear from you!

  16. You have some incredible shots here.

  17. Have you ever read any of the Sookie Stackhouse novels? A little less… ummm… HOT then the Anita Blake but still enjoyable.

  18. @angi1972 – Thank you, and no I have not read those.  Yeah, I liked ANita Blake at first because unlike the fairy series it seemed to have a lot less to do with porn and more about the story.  How that has changed the farther I have read into the series.  However, I am hooked now and I must finish it!

  19. The last one is by far my favorite, absolutely amazing.

  20. Gorgeous pictures, Southernlass! It makes me want to grab my camera and do that, too. Only I hate mosquito bites.

  21. You are posting some great shots for this challenge.  I am very familiar with the little anemone and you got a great closeup of it.  Love the hawk.  I keep hoping for some good shots of birds eventually.  Love the reflection, it’s beautiful.

  22. Really beautiful pictures, I especially liked the pictures of the bird and the last picture. Very nice. Keep up the good work! Hope you win the challege.

  23. All your pictures are great, Jilly 🙂 I love the beauty of the countryside.

  24. Love the picture. I’m a big fan of birds (hawks, eagles, falcons, owls).

  25. Came over by way of Freeverse’s rec. All of the pictures are beautiful-but my favorites are the water and the field. On a competely different topic: How is the Anita Blake series? I’ve been meaning to read it forever…
