Weekend Cowgirl Update

Well, it has been 33 days since my accident and I am doing so much better. I won’t bore you with all the details except to say I had never ever had a broken bone of any kind which is really great. I can now say I never ever want a broken bone again. Evidently, when […]

The Power of Words

When I am around our precious kiddos I realize more and more how they take each word you say and it just sticks in their head. I very much want everything I impart to them to be remembered as pleasant (well, at least MOST of my words!) I found this awesome list on Pinterest which has great […]

Monday Memories

Growing up on a ranch was the best thing ever! The positives always outweighed the negatives. The only real negative from my view was the lack of playmates. There were no kids close by. The flip side of that was, as a little kid, you learn very quickly to make your own fun. My siblings and […]

Our Farrier

One year ago today we lost our friend and farrier in a tragic accident. We have housed an emptiness in our hearts this entire year. He was such a loving man and more importantly loved our animals. It is hard to find a farrier who will work on donkeys and goats, but he did, and they loved him. He […]

Good-by To Our Dear Friend

Cancer finally won…I don’t think so. No, cancer did not really win. In the end it did take our friend from us, but so much more can be said about his battle. He was able to spend several months in the place he loved best. He was able to be in his beloved Montana. No one […]

Our Best Friend’s Hat

Our best friend is still wearing his hat. As I told you on December 13th he did not ask to wear this hat, but he was given it anyway. His family and friends did not want him to wear this hat. In spite of everything he has worn it with dignity, strength and has been […]

My Mom

Forever Friendships

I am feeling a little melancholy today. Thinking of of all my childhood friends I have not seen forever. The small rural area I grew up in was a wonderful place to grow up. Everyone was a friend. Everyone knew everyone. Every-one’s parents knew each other. We could leave our house and bike around town […]

Girl’s Spring Break Weekend

A few girl friends and I decided at the last minute to take a short trip since none of us was going anywhere for spring break. Destination: several small towns and an outlet mall. We had a great time and found a few goodies, but the best part of trip was just driving around finding cute […]

Little Bit of Fun Here and There

We are busy getting ready for spring with a few projects at the farm. Nothing big, just a few improvements in the bath and lots of fresh new paint inside and out. A few new pillows here and there. I am a happy camper because I especially love fresh paint! I have had a great […]

Real 50s Cowboy

Found these great photos of one of cowboy’s uncles. This photo was taken in 1952 – James and his beloved horse Salty. He and his horse left the southwest to ride all the way to San Diego and back. He loved his horse Salty. He loved riding. Anybody who would ride their horse that far has got […]

“Girlie” Can Ski!

Our precious “girlie” got to go skiing for the first time this year as part of her family Christmas. “Girlie” is really a precious little girl. She has a girl side to her, but she is also tough as nails.  She loves to play with dolls and the next minute she might go for a wrestling […]
