We had my chainsaw lesson yesterday – I learned how to attempt avoidance of the 1″ long thorns on the branches, how to cut the smaller branches with the tip, how to work through the larger ones with the base of the saw and use my body to help, and the mechanics of fuel, lubrication, […]

I’ve been trying to create a post for two days now but blogger has been acting up on me. I started the west pasture the other day and have made good progress so far. The trees and grass have grown up through the fenceline so I’ve got to mow and nice working strip around the […]

I just won the coolest mom award! I mixed up a batch of pantry chocolate shakes, filled two frozen mugs, stuck them in a small cooler, hooked up the trailer to the mower, and met the bus at the end of the driveway. The boys got off the bus and I took them for a […]

Ed’s had two shots so far of the Enbril and will get his third tonight. Reaction is mixed — not good and not bad. He was having another outbreak come on and the Enbril appears to have stopped it from getting worse, but it’s not going away either. The documentation says it can take up […]

Random pics of the farm….. This is a crooked cottonwood on the fenceline between the house and pasture. Last year those branches up top sprouted, but they didn’t come back this year. Not sure if they ever will again. That metal building is an old ice cream truck and is shaped really odd inside. It […]

On Making An Ass Of Oneself I’m not sure oneself is a word, but too bad. The daily adventures of Loopy will amaze and astound you, or at the very least, bore you to tears. It began innocently enough. Being the super-organized Martha-in-Training Goddess I called the vet in Hillsboro to remind him that Moo […]

Ever stuck your husband with a needle? I did it last night and I was so nervous my hands shook. Ed’s been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and, if left unchecked, it will kill him within the next 18-24 months. We found this out late last week. No, check that. Ed found out late last week […]

Just had to come back and post some pics of the hens and chicks. The babies have gotten brave enough to fly up and over two straw bales so we went ahead and let them out of their pen and the coop. We put Jack (the dog) in the house to give them a day […]

I’m just NEVER happy! OK, over 100′ for weeks on end and we haven’t had rain since before I had kids. We *need* rain here. So it rained last night. It wasn’t really a rain, it was a torential (yes, I’m quite sure that’s spelled wrong and I don’t even care) downpour that was so […]
