Never plan your day when you run a farm. You’d think I’d have learned that by now. Those who know me will laugh when I say that I’ve learned to be as flexible as possible. My dishes aren’t done from this morning, no laundry is spinning, and my ribs still aren’t marinated. I may end […]

The nicest thing just happened while doing chores which proves to me, again, just how awesome our animals are. I overslept a little this morning and when Ed took the boys down for the bus I took my time eating my breakfast. Well, with daylight coming earlier this meant the goats and cow gave up […]

Grant me strength, Kenny has discovered my hair products. They took class pics yesterday at school and apparently he was told he had nice hair or something so he’s now obsessed with combing, geling, styling, and re-wetting. This 7 yr old boy spent about 2 solid hrs in the bathroom last night “doing his hair” […]

And it’s a go! We’ve settled the deal for three of her horses and I’ll travel up there Thursday. I have a friend in KC who’s agreed to put me up for the evening if I need to travel over several days or make two trips. These are young horses that still need a lot […]

I have reason to fear the wind. The large cottonwood tree that was struck by lightening last year had it’s top 50′ blown off Saturday evening. I was standing in the kitchen talking on the phone to a lady about a horse and watched it fall. It was a truly awesome sight. That tree has […]

After spending two full evenings going over our spring to-do list, I’m wiped out just thinking about it. Guttering, painting, building stalls, fencing, planting, creating gardens, finishing a burn pit, it’s all laid out. I think I’ll go veg out for a week on the couch. I’m simply exhausted.

I love it when I’m right…………. it happens so rarely. This afternoon reached the high 60′s and the bright warming spring sun – without a breath of wind. I was finished working at 1:00 so Vincent and I headed out. Naturally, I checked the cable across the drive and gave Moo and good talking to […]

Moo has run away from home. No need for panic, she’s back safely on her farm but it was quite an interesting day. I noticed she stood for an hour with her head through the fence draining the horse water tank — she’s been doing that each day, we believe in an effort to force […]

I think I just upgraded to the new blogger and I’m afraid to check the view because my site designer had it just perfect. Knowing my luck, it’s totally screwed up. Weeeeeeelllllllll, it’s been an interesting week around here. The weather is the biggest news — it’s in the 40′s!!! The only problem is the […]

Confession time. I’ve never lived in a two story house or in the country and the one thing that totally and irrationally strikes fear deep in my heart is the wind. I know it’s completely unreasonable but I just *feel* the wind about to simply blow my house away. 30 mph wind woke me up […]
