It’s Monday…

Slept like the dead last night, struggled to get moving this morning. Brad made coffee and then headed to the farm to pick up the grandsons for a visit. He returned with smoothies and breakfast cookies for the two of them and breakfast croissants for the two of us. He is now making a secondContinue reading “It’s Monday…”

Like I Need More Cotton Yarn…

This is my coned cotton stash…about two dozen cones on one shelf. This is the last order of cotton yarn I got in the mail from Walmart a couple of weeks ago. So, I really hadn’t planned on ordering more yarn. And, yet I did. It’s at the post office and I can pick itContinue reading “Like I Need More Cotton Yarn…”

We Have Eggs!

I hate running out of staples in the kitchen and now that I’ve got two dozen fresh eggs I’m happy! We’ll have some scrambled egg tacos tonight with flour tortillas. The paperback copies I ordered of Dr. Pol’s book came in and I gave Brad one of them to read. I’ll take the other oneContinue reading “We Have Eggs!”

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”

It’s Monday…

Been UA (Unauthorized Absence) for a few days. Yeah, the military doesn’t use AWOL anymore. So. I’m back. And, no. I’m not in the military, but my dad was, as were most of my cousins, several uncles, my father-in-law and my daughter, so. There you have it. I tend to use military acronyms for everydayContinue reading “It’s Monday…”

More Storms and Our Search for Doggos

We had another round of storms last night about midnight. I really, really, really hope we are done for awhile. In any case, a cool front came through with that band of storms and it was 51° this morning at 7:00 am. I let Brad sleep in and after he got up he went inContinue reading “More Storms and Our Search for Doggos”

Smart Phones and Old Friends

I haven’t had a call on my cell phone in weeks then out of the blue it rang while I was sorting laundry. I didn’t recognize the number but it was a knitting buddy I haven’t talked to in ages. She also has a new ‘smart’ phone and a new number. We used to meetContinue reading “Smart Phones and Old Friends”

Home Improvements

This door leading to the utility room and one of the bedroom doors wouldn’t shut properly and were catching at the top of the jamb. Son-in-law David came out with the two older boys and took care of the problem for us. While they were here they loaded the riding mower and a cart thatContinue reading “Home Improvements”

Love A Thunderstorm

I’ve always loved thunderstorms, even as a little girl. We’ve got quite a nice storm going on in our area right now. We need the rain. Audrey needs to get the hay field fertilized…talk about sticker shock…and this rain will help get the ground ready for it. She’s keeping the cattle off of the pasturesContinue reading “Love A Thunderstorm”
