Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks

This photo is a reminder of what I can do when I put my mind, and hands, to it. All of my 4 ounce bobbins ready to ply. I really enjoyed that summer. I can do it again as long as I take care of myself and stay on top of things. Age really isContinue reading “Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks”

Grandma And Grandad Go To The Vet!

These are our daughter’s sweet girls. Hava on the left, Magen on the right. They are eight months old and doing well. Magen weighs seven pounds less than Hava but I think Hava has had a growth spurt and Magen will soon catch up to her. They don’t have to go back until next AugustContinue reading “Grandma And Grandad Go To The Vet!”

Almost There

I’m hoping to finish this pair of socks today. It’s slow going with a lace pattern but very much worth it. I’ve got Pluto TV on Roku streaming while I knit. Midsomer Murders is on. Brad is at the shop tinkering and testing ammo. It’s a gorgeous day here in our little corner of Texas.Continue reading “Almost There”

Success!

I picked Joshua up at 10 am and we headed to town, talked to the young man at Game Stop and after checking with Audrey it was decided that they just needed a new game console. I was able to replace the Playstation 4 console at the farm with a Playstation 4 Pro, a refurbishedContinue reading “Success!”

Sunshine, Sock Heels, & A Red Angus Bull

The rain has moved on, the sun is shining, still partly cloudy and in the high 80’s temperature wise. It should get into the low 90’s for the rest of the week, no more rain to speak of for now. A nice taste of Fall weather earlier than usual for us. I’ve finished the heelsContinue reading “Sunshine, Sock Heels, & A Red Angus Bull”

Still Hot in Texas

The break we had from the high heat has passed. It’s windy. It’s over 100° again. But, our propane tank is filled and the Generac is online and ready in case the power goes out, so we are good to go. And here we are starting another month. Not that I miss July one bit,Continue reading “Still Hot in Texas”

Almost There

The propane tank is set and connected to the Generac. It works! All we need now is for Douglas Propane to send a truck out to top off the tank. During a power outage the generator will come on after 15 seconds without power and shut off again when the power comes back on. AndContinue reading “Almost There”

It Was Only 106° Today

It wasn’t quite as hot today, just up to 106° and at 9:30 pm it’s 93°. We had overcast skies as evening came on, some thunder off in the distance, but as far as I know we haven’t had a drop of rain. Hava got her muzzle off this morning and she has some soreContinue reading “It Was Only 106° Today”

Another Blazing Hot Day In Texas

I stayed indoors today but Brad took Magen in to see the vet and get her shots. She was such a good girl, much calmer than her sister Hava. He picked up our grocery order on his way home. Tomorrow he takes Hava back to see if her muzzle can come off or has toContinue reading “Another Blazing Hot Day In Texas”

Tomorrow Is The Day!

First thing in the morning Web Electric will be coming down our drive to begin installing our Generac 2400 generator, and about half an hour later our electric coop will be here to disconnect the power so that the generator can be connected to the house, then they’ll turn everything back on. Easy peasy. ThenContinue reading “Tomorrow Is The Day!”
