A Pumpkiny Post

I’ve been busy. In a relaxed sort of way. Doing what I like; liking what I do. The honor-system, money-bucket on the tailgate has worked well. I’ve also had time to meet neighbors, visit with friends and observe what people … Continue reading

You can’t buy peace

Wednesday night, Abigail (Pumpkin Pie’s mama) came home!  I wish I had pictures of Pumpkin Pie’s jump-about-celebration.  Too much was going on at that time, though.  I snapped this picture early Thursday morning.  Pie is in the foreground.  Although she … Continue reading

So glad I was running late.

Started mowing. Came in to make a spaghetti supper. Washed dishes. Jump-started the 4-wheeler so Pig-farmer could load it in the truck. I have to take it to the shop tomorrow. Finished mowing. Had to soak the gimpy goat’s foot in Epsom … Continue reading

Muddy Me

One morning this week, when Pig-farmer was home to do chores, I slipped away for walk. The dew was so heavy! It made me think of icy crystals of frost … but hopefully that isn’t for several more weeks. The crickets … Continue reading

I’m not making a to-do list.

I am behind with blogging.  And cleaning.  And laundry.  And exercising.  And about anything else I could put on my to-do list, if I were making a to-do list. I don’t really care.  I’m not making a to-do list.  I’m … Continue reading
