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!”

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!”

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”

Busy Day, Unhappy Pup

Turns out Hava did have a small fracture of her jaw as well as it being dis-located. All is well, except she is frustrated with the muzzle that has to stay on for two weeks. She dislikes having to drink her dinner and she’s tired and frustrated. Brad was busy today, up at 6:00 am,Continue reading “Busy Day, Unhappy Pup”

Progress on Several Fronts

First of all, it appears that my lap robe may turn out to be more of a shawl now that I see how far my yarn is going. I probably should have followed my first inclination to knit a couple of more inches before starting the decreases for the rectangle, but I’ll continue on asContinue reading “Progress on Several Fronts”

Another Birthday

Miss Rachel is 13 today. Holy cow! We have another teenager in the family! We’ll bring her out to spend the day with us very soon. It’s been so blooming hot lately that there isn’t much that we can do outdoors, but we can find something to do inside and enjoy the A/C. We hadContinue reading “Another Birthday”

Grateful For Our Blessings

Our Texas weather still thinks it’s summer with temps in the 90’s for some days to come. Small discomfort since our home is cool and dry. All is well at the family farm. Hava and Magen have settled in, although they wake in the middle of the night, as does baby Gabriel when he hearsContinue reading “Grateful For Our Blessings”
