Living Life is Wonderful

Living & Loving Life really is such a gift. For each of us, hopefully, the journey is a long one. Living life brings us a winding road of expectations and where it takes us we never quite know. Our families, who mean the most to us, help make us complete. The rest of life is “fluff” and icing on the cake. Family, friends, animals, nature, travel and doing good all help knit us together in this beautiful world. Cowboy and I are blessed with our farm, and all that comes with it, which gives us so much joy and contentment.  This journey we live is filled with ups and downs and we know how important it is to live every moment because you never get those good times back. The hard times in life are part of all of our experiences. Life goes fast and Weekend Cowgirl is determined to enjoy and embrace every single day! I am hoping that this year will give me new dreams and accomplishments.  Hoping that all my family and friends can say they are loving life also!

Cha-Cha Solar!

  Got a few of these cute solar lanterns to try out and they worked great. How easy & so very cute for any farm or house. I wish I had ordered more... They came from Target. … [Read More...]

Antique Chicken Coup

Our farm has an old chicken coup that was built around late 1800's. It used to be in the cattle & sheep pasture. That pasture now has my donkey's and pet goats. I have always loved this little structure. It was a rickety falling down little thing that had seen better days. A few years ago I made cowboy have the stone restored and had a little tin top but on it. Then we moved the fence line to … [Read More...]

Can I Cook Eggs on Sidewalk?

If I had a farm sidewalk we cook cook our dinner on it tonight...REALLY! I hate to complain, but since I always have an ongoing farm list of things to do and knowing they will not get done in this 105 degree heat today I have posted a picture of where I will probably be all weekend...under our wonderful shade trees. Cowboy got me a really great mist maker so it will be hooked up all weekend. This … [Read More...]

Hope you had a fun July 4th!

Hope you had a nice 4th celebrating our wonderful country. We had an interesting 4th. It was more of a "catch up" weekend at our place. Lots of gardening, dragging water sprinklers around and the usual yard clean up. Our farrier came to take care of our three girls (donkey's) and they must have been celebrating also because they were so good this time. Actually, I think they were just too hot to … [Read More...]

Spot

This is Spot & a dog he is not. He is one of our pet goats and he is the one that exudes lots of personality! Spot follows us around like a puppy. If we leave our vehicle doors opens he invites himself inside to ride with us. If we get a trailer out he is the first to get on it in hopes of a free ride. If we are working around the barns he stays right with us. And he does love his treats which … [Read More...]

April Clouds

Did you ever cloud watch as a kid? We had some great clouds in April. I am going to make sure I grab a Diet Coke and blanket and spend one entire hour in June watching clouds! … [Read More...]

I LOVE Birdhouses!

I am crazy for birdhouses. Always have loved them and always had them around my house. I have them on poles all over the farm. Am hoping that the telephone and electric companies do not mind me borrowing space! This spring I added a few old cedar posts and put birdhouses on top for a nice effect. I have lots of extra houses I brought from town that need to be repaired and perhaps a coat of paint … [Read More...]

Blowing in the Wind

What a great weekend. Beautiful warm weather to bring on a big case of "Spring Fever". Finally got those sages planted with a little help from my friends. Got lots of items on my to-do list accomplished. The vet came and worked on a sick goat and the Ferrier came to trim our donkey's hooves. Our girls were not very cooperative this time. In fact, Lucy, our youngest donkey was downright terrible. … [Read More...]

Buffalo Friend

 This grand fellow does not live at my place ( my cowboy will not let me have one) ! I am lucky because he does live "down the road" where I can visit with him occasionally. I have always had a fascination with these wonderful creatures. When I was a little girl my parents would take us kids to a little theme park in Oklahoma where we could enjoy bumper cars and other rides of the past. I loved … [Read More...]

No Bluebonnets This Year

For all our friends who wanted to take pictures of the kids in bluebonnets at the farm please know that it will probably not be happening this year due to our severe drought. I imagine the bluebonnets will be fairly scare this year. Maybe next year will bring the rain we need for beautiful spring flowers. On the bright side March is here and we can all start to celebrate spring really soon. When … [Read More...]
