β˜€οΈHottest week in 2 years, here in North Texas. I sure could go for some of this white stuff!! I actually took this picture through my car window, at 70 mph.... and it's one of my favorites! Taken a couple of years ago, while driving in northern AZ. . . . . . . . #scenicview #scenic #scenic_view #winter #snow #northernaz #northernarizona #flagstaff #flagstaffaz #beautifulworld #natureloversgallery #naturephotography #naturalworld #instagood #picoftheday #trees #beauty #treehugger #itsabeautifulworld #peaceful #scenic_view #scenicdrive

Morning break. This must be the spot for all the "locals". This Robin stopped to take a break from the daily grind on this old roping dummy, that my son inlaw welded (way back when). Last week I captured a cute pic of a squirrel in same spot *see my gallery* Many other birds and animals gravitate to this spot. 😊 I wonder why? . . . . . . . . . #birds #birdlovers #bird_freaks #bird_lovers #birdie #birds_adored #birdwatchersdaily #bird_ #birding #birders #bird_extreme #birdwatchers #birdwatching #birdwatcher #birdlove #birdsofinstagram #bird #birdwatchers_daily #countryusa #countrylifestyle #countryscene #countryshots #countryliving #countryside #countrylivi #ilovethecountry

Take time to reflect each and every day. I like to reflect on all the good in my life each day. It's so easy to be consumed with the negatives - they can seem overwhelming. But I made a decision a long time ago (during a period of colic with one of my babies) to focus on the positives, and when I do the negatives shrink to the back. I may not be able to control the things that come and go in my life, but I can control what I focus on. My husband calls me the eternal optimist! I call it contentment. πŸ˜‰ . . . . . . . . . . #lakes #mountaintown #mountainlake #mountainlakes #northerncalifornia #northerncalifornia #californiamountains #californiaadventure #scenicview #scenic #scenic_view #reflection #reflections #reflect #thankful #grateful #begrateful #bethankful #theoptomist #optomism #eternal #loveyourlife #naturephotography #natureadventure #lovely #peaceful #serene #lovelife #content #contentment

AZ. My second home. This was taken in Sedona, and is called Slide Rock. This beautiful red rock has a fast moving, steep slide and then a slow moving natural Lazy River. It's popular for swimming, and as the name implies, it's slippery when wet! πŸ˜‰ . . . . #arizona #northernaz #sliderockstatepark #sedona #redrocks #sliderock #lazyriver #natureloversgallery #naturelove #naturephoto #arizonalove #azlove #arizonaliving #naturalwonders #naturalworld #naturegram

"Truck Stop". This quaint small town calls to me. Located in north-eastern California, it's rural America at it's best! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #countryside #usa #rural #ruralamerica #rural_shots #rural_america #rural_usa #americancountry #mountaintown #west #dodgetrucks #rawcalifornia #northerncalifornia #smalltownsusa #smalltowns #ilovesmalltowns

Does anyone know what kind of hawk this is? It's HUGE! We have a pair of these that usually stay high up on an electric pole near us, but yesterday this one was on the ground. Looking for fledglings, I assume. They are super skittish of humans, so this photo (by an amateur- ME) is rare πŸ™‚ . . . . . . #birders #birding #bird_extreme #bird_lovers #hawk #hawks #hawklife #eagle #browneagle #birds #natureloversgallery #naturelove #naturelovers_photogroup #nature #naturephotography #nature_lovers #nature #nature_cuties

Every horse should be loved by a little girl at least once in their life! This "old man" was my son in-laws horse (and was put out to pasture with cows) when he & my daughter got married 10 years ago. They brought him home to my granddaughters. He's now got a second chance at love ❀️ . . . . . . . #horses #horselover #horselovers #ilovehorses #horse❀️ #i❀️horses #horse_riding #horse #countrykidsfun #countrykidsdoitbetter #countrykids #countrylife #raw #raw_featured #countrylife #rural_life #rural_love #ruralamerica #ruralfun #best_shots #iloveanimals #texas #countrygirls #texaskids #ruralkids #kidfun #best_shotz #familyfirst #granddaughters

The Front Porch is the place where neighbors wave, sweet tea is served, and you hear a wooden screen slam shut. Everyone should experience a front porch! ------- We restored and renovated an old farmhouse with a view like none other. The front porch was my favorite place to be, and I miss it. We moved back to be nearer my aging grandparents, which I never regretted. I was able to visit with my sweet Bigdaddy (aka grandfather) every day before he died. 😌 . . . . . . #frontporch #frontporchsittin #front_porch #summersun #summerporch #summersunsets #porchlife #porchfest #porches #country_features #wonderfullife❀️ #myfavoriteplace
