If you’re needing a good cry

March 31st, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Let’s face it, sometimes watching a great tearjerker of a movie can be a wonderfully cleansing activity and I’m sure you all have your favorites you turn to for just such a thing.   I often come across stories on the web involving farms or animals and I guess it makes me appreciate the gift of […]

Today he’s twelve

And he informed me yesterday that he’s already got the puberty. In a brief moment of insanity I allowed both him and Kenny to not only have a friend over for a sleep-over but these two boys are also brothers.  Please don’t ask me what I was thinking because I truly don’t know.  You haven’t […]

Another confession

March 27th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

If you’re a man, especially if your name is Ed and you’re married to me, please do not continue reading.  Brace yourselves, I’m about to talk about woman stuff.  That’s right.  The secret stuff that women discuss when you’re not around and then you walk in the room with a blank stare and look at […]

Back to the grind

We arrived at the farm yesterday from the funeral.  It was a lovely service and celebration of Grandpa’s life.  I think Kenny took it the hardest and was especially upset to see his grandpa breaking down.  He went to Leon and comforted him the best his little 8 yr old heart could do.  Remember my […]

My Grandpa passed away last night.  He was 93 and ready to go, refusing food or water as well as meds over the past week.  He was kept comfortable and went peacefully to join his wife of nearly seven decades. The funeral and farm activities will have us very busy for a while so and […]

You know how I complain that I don’t have enough to do?

March 13th, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Well slap me upside the head if you ever hear me say that again! You’d think I’d get the entire house cleaned with the boys gone.  You’d think I’d work like a demon since I wouldn’t have the boys to care for.  You’d think Ed and I would get SO MUCH done without them.  You’d […]

What a week!

March 10th, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

I think I’ve finally got a few minutes to sit and relax – those minutes have been very few and far apart the past week. Rebecca’s two mares in foal arrived last week and have settled in nicely.  I’m not sure if Silver just doesn’t care or sympathizes but the’s bonded with them and we […]

I haven’t made a fool of myself for a while, so I’m due

March 5th, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Sunday afternoon Susie calls to remind me that back in August during enrollment I signed up to help with the school carnival and the first planning meeting is Tuesday evening at 6:30.  So yesterday, after a long ride with Jen and lots of chores in the beautiful sunny weather, I showered then prepared dinner so […]

Back in the saddle, literally

March 1st, 2008 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

After treatments all week with the chiropractor and diligent “taking it easy” I’m pretty much back to normal.  And back to normal couldn’t come soon enough around here as we’ve got wonderful spring temps and lots of work to do.  Although there’s a stiff 30 mph wind outside we aint complaining as that will dry […]
