All Brushed Up

During calving time, we say “uh oh she’s all brushed up, she’s up to something, better go check it out”. This means she’s hiding in the brush most likely giving birth, about to give birth or has already given birth and doesn’t want to be bothered. Well, I’ve been “all brushed up” for over a week now. NOT giving birth, let’s keep that straight, but working on restyling leahyetter.com, archiving last years work on a new harddrive, processing images for my bestie and getting nervous about an old harddrive that is knocking on heaven’s door as I type this. It’s been very cold outside so it’s a good time to hide indoors, feed logs to the fire and work work work. I did go out for a hike when it warmed up to about 30 degrees and saw this doe all brushed up.
Anyway, I’ll be back here soon with some beauties I photographed before the new year. Patrick and I went for a hike in the hills and stumbled upon a herd that I dream about. Stay tuned. xoxo

    How beautiful – and I learned a new term today – they say the day is not wasted if you learn one new thing. And your website/blod is anything but a waste. THANKS so much for sharing. A fire surely makes working a tad bit easier, right? 🙂 I can picture it – snow outside, warm crackling fire, laptop humming away… Looking forward to the pictures of “the herd” – but stay warm!

      Ah thank you Jane. I needed to hear/ read every word in your comment.
      Not only do I have the fire going, there is a small space heater at my feet. 🙂

        Thanks Auntie Jill! Yeah, the wind really blows and it comes when the temperature goes up. We’ll probably see some of that later this week.

    I brushed up all spring, summer and fall, lurking in the fields and woods. I’m pretty excited to learn a phrase I can use and impress my western friends. (: Leah this winter we’re about 30″ below our average snowfall- again! We need the water. Have you gotten much snow?

      Hi Melissa! I’ve asked before if we’re getting any significant moisture from our snows and I’m told that it really isn’t doing much. I haven’t gotten specific numbers from anyone but I did hear that there will be a big change in February. I don’t know what that means but hopefully it does mean moisture.
      Glad you have a new term to use. I’ve been brushed up a lot lately but I’m hoping that will change this year. We’ll see. Take care!
