How long do chores take?

That is a common question I get asked.  My first thought is always, ‘It depends if anyone pooped in their water trough.’ I try to do extra chores on Wednesday mornings because I have a standing date on Wednesday evenings … Continue reading

Can you hear the whispers?

Yesterday was not a quiet day. It was flock-of-snow-geese noisy! It was stand-strong, prepare for harsh, winter weather, gray, moody kind of day. Today dawned cold, but crisp and clear. A we-weathered-another-storm kind of day. The kind of quiet where … Continue reading

Photo Monday

With the holidaze I haven’t hardly been able to keep track of what day it is.  Church yesterday morning and the return of Downton Abbey last night may help me get back on track.  While vegging on the couch, listening … Continue reading

Crisp, Cold & …. Complacent?

After too many dreary, rainy, cloudy, raw-feeling days, the sun is shining brightly today.  “Out!” I said to the animals.  “Out you go!!”  Yesterday, we opened their gates as the muddy, soft ground was starting to freeze up, making a … Continue reading

Photo Friday, Update and Christmas Prep

The sore trapezius (muscle between shoulder/neck) persists, but I think is slowly, oh-so-slowly, getting better.  I’ve avoided much typing and limited time on the computer.  I think that aggravates it.  Texting, too.  Posture, posture, posture! Pig-farmer has been gone most of … Continue reading

Hear me ROAR!

We survived that late-fall snow!  It quickly reminded me why winter is not my favorite season. 2014 was definitely the year that winter returned to Illinois.  So, I am taking the attitude that since it is still 2014 …. this … Continue reading

So, it snowed.

Which was completely unnecessary in my humble opinion. I mean, I know it is pretty and all that stuff, but it is November 16th!  Winter, by my calendar, is not until December 21st. The animals didn’t seem to mind too … Continue reading

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
