Here is a photo of an eagle nest high in a pine tree on the shore of Norway Lake in Minnesota. An eagle nest is called an eyrie. Bald eagles use the same nest every year. They repair the nest and add new twigs, grass, moss, & feathers each season. One of our greatest cabin pleasures is to watch these nests from the lake each summer. On this day we were able to observe this protective eagle guarding the nest for several hours. Finally after loudly calling out to his or her mate, the eagle flew away to take a much deserved break! We are hoping to see some eaglets in a month or so.
On March 4, 2016 our three year old daughter Maria died suddenly of a seemingly common illness. One week later our daughter Lucy was born. These are our reflections as we face death, grief, and new life.
This site is about my life as a farmgirl, wife, mother and grandmother and the things I love to do. I've been married to the same man that I love for 40+ years. We have two beautiful adult children and one granddaughter. We pretty much live off of our farm by raising our food or hunting for it. My blog is a day to day walk-through of our life.
