Snakes are out and I really enjoyed the two month reprieve of not having to be so very careful. Now, I am watching where I walk and where I put my hands. When I go out at night it is always with a flashlight. I attended a small rattlesnake round up this weekend. If you are […]
This beautiful photo is from a friend of Cowboys. His family owns a pig farm in France and this photo speaks a thousand words on the bountiful loveliness of their country setting. I could plow in these French fields forever and a day on this beautiful farm. I have never had the opportunity to visit France, but am positive it […]
We have had nice warm weather this week which I consider a blessing this time of year. To have 80 degree weather in November enables me to spend many hours outside completing chores and getting things ready for winter. (Did I ever tell you I really hate doing chores in cold weather?) I have had painting […]
I never get over the sweetness of this sight… Such a good mama and such a contented calf.
This is another awesome sunset from this week. Each sunset is different and I never tire of what nature will provide each evening. Sunsets at the farm never fail to provide us a glorious palate of color every evening.
Well, that is what I call Miss Lucy most of the time. We have been so busy at the farm. Larger “fire lanes” are being cut at farm due to the continued heat and drought and fear of fire. It was 108 day before yesterday and 104 yesterday, but we finally got a cool front […]
This title of this blog post about sums it up. It is the hottest, driest year we have had in around a century. Devastating can accurately describe conditions here at the farm. The hot winds have ripped the pastures of any moisture. No moisture = No grass = Unhappy cattle. Of course, our cows look all […]
Here’s hoping you have beautiful sunsets this weekend. I took these last month. The photos were about 3 minutes apart and the sky changes so much in just a minute or two. Hoping that you can enjoy the beauty of a gorgeous sunset soon.
Took this in January. It was a nice sunny day and I liked how the winter grass looked against the sky. So serene. It is nice to find the beauty where one thinks there is none. (I love spring and green)
We have had very little moisture since the first of last summer. It was time to have the grader come go over the fire lanes. Cowboy surprised me by having a few of the farm roads smoothed out. This is a new road which gave us a completely new view and I love it! In […]
Last night we had a little moisture and we were down to our very last brush pile. This is the last pile burning for this year. It has taken us the entire year to finish burning all our old brush piles. Glad to be going into spring and summer with no huge piles around the farm. […]
Cowboy and I had lots of chores this week, but we also made time for fun too. Our weather is crazy. We have had virtually no rain this fall so I actually had to drag out our stored hoses and fire up the water sprinklers. Everything is a tinderbox so I am making sure the house […]
We have an old deer cam that sometimes gets put up and is operational. Most of the time the deer cam just gets photos of cowboy or son #1 adding corn to the deer feeder. Or cowboy driving by in his truck. Tons of photos of cowboy and his truck. Finally got a shot of […]
