Tuesday's Treasures & Things

Welcome Marcia, a new follower of Desert Canyon Living. Marcia blogs in Portuguese here. 

Treasures come in many forms and I treasure the views outside our windows here. This morning, I was thrilled to see that my friends, the cow (above) and two steer, have now returned to the large field that is part of the view from our living room window.

I have something in mind for a special treasure post, but I haven't had the energy to put it together yet. So when I spotted the cattle this morning, up to their tummies in mustard and other weeds, I thought I would share this country view with you.

And make it my treasure for this week. She is pretty isn't she?


  1. She is very pretty, Inger! When I was a little girl I used to talk to cows and pretend like they talked back to me and that they were my friends. I love cows.
    You're place is so beautiful..

  2. love the big holstein! i'd treasure that view too!

  3. She's beautiful, I love cows! Nice pasture for them right now. Your view IS a treasure!

  4. We'll have cattle returning in about a week. I know what you mean -- they are fun to look at.

    Hope you are feeling better, Inger.

  5. She looks so peaceful there in her pasture. She sees you taking her picture too. Makes me smile.

    I like your dogs in the sidebar. Samson, Soldier, Angel, Princess, Bandit. We lost our Autumn Eve in 2006 and are finally getting serious about another dog. I keep checking the animal shelters and when I see the right one that will be our dog.

  6. Let me see--1 cow & 2 steers--& this is a long term relationship? Sounds a little fishy, I mean bovine, to me.

  7. I see you have a pretend herd also. I just love other peoples cows. All the pleasure and none of the work.

  8. What a beautiful blog you have.... such lovely animals too!!

    I miss having dogs, but we travel way to much and it just wouldn't be fair to have an animal. So, I will stop by and enjoy yours.

  9. Yes I love cows myself!! How sweet to see them out there I know I would enjoy it like you do. I'm half way through the book Dragon Bones by the way on my Kindle.

  10. Thank you for your comments. Nan: You have moose to look at, that must be fun as well.

    Patti: Yes, other people's cows are really great. Particularly if they are rescues, never to become hamburgers.

    fishducky: Nor sure steer are into relationships.

    Honest Abe: Welcome back here. I hope you find the right dog.

    And to the rest of you: I so agree that there is something very peaceful about cows in a pasture.

    Terry: Welcome and thank you for the compliment. My dogs say they hope you will enjoy their stories.

  11. Treasures come in ALL forms and these are priceless! what a precious view you have Inger!

  12. They MUST be into relationships! Look at all the great love songs they inspired. "My One & Only Cow", "I Love You Moo-ly", "Drink to Me Only With Thine Cud", "Bossy Face" & one of my favorites, "Give Me a Lick to Build a Dream On".

  13. HAPPY THURSDAY INGER!! I'm having a hard time keeping up with blogs, but I figure better late then, well you know....

    Even though cows are everywhere, I always enjoy seeing them too!!

    Hope you're doing well and having a good week!

  14. I love these scenes. I grew up with them and into my early Forties, traveling from Salt Lake to Nevada, to California and back. There's nothing more calming to me than seeing cattle grazing, and hills and mountains in the background.
