Sushi – What’s to love?

This post is a little late, as this happened last Friday night, but I just can’t get it off my mind. Our normal family ritual is to go out to eat on Friday night.  Sort of an end of the week – ” Whew – we made it to the weekend” type of thing.  Sometimes …

To be a kid again….

While the summer heat bears down on me daily as I do my outdoor chores, I think back and remember my summers of long ago. The sweet anticipation of waking every morning and wondering what the day had in store for me. Would we ride bikes today? Could I talk Mom into letting me stay …

Wow what a weekend….

Saturday morning, I loaded Dusty and went to ride in the Relay for Life Benefit trail ride sponsored by the Cowboy Church of Marshall County. I *almost* left without a camera, but decided to try out a new harness that I bought from Amazon.com. The general idea is good, but being of the female persuasion, …

Ride 3 on Buck …..

3rd ride on the Yeller Feller tonight. His personality is truly starting to come out. I’ve got to work him on standing still to be mounted. As soon as he feels you lift your right leg off the ground, he wants to walk off. I want him to stand still until the rider is firmly …

Really Busy Weekend here…..

We attended my nephew Brandon’s basketball game Friday night. Brandon is a senior and this was a playoff game – lose and you’re out. It was a hard fought contest, but thankfully they won. Go Sardis Lions! This is the high school where I spent most of my teen years – 7th thru 10th grades, …

Life on the farm – it’s a laugh a minute….

When I was coming back to the house from feeding kids and Buck this morning, I kept hearing a cow bellowing. Not the normal lowing that you hear from time to time, but the version of Bovine 911. My first thought was that someone was having a calf, and although it usually doesn’t work out, …

Went Bald Eagle watching today

Chris and I got up before dawn and fed Buck and the goats. Loaded up the cameras and took off to Town Creek to meet the Bald Eagle watching group. It was colder than a…….. I’ll let you fill in the blank. Others in the group spotted two juvenile eagles flying over when I went …

Snow Day!!

The great Blizzard of 2011 struck last night and left the entire upper half of Alabama pretty much paralyzed. All roads are either closed or said to be impassable, and even the Governor is asking folks to just stay home. Handyman (my pet name for hubby) and I went out to feed this morning at …

My Wish List – aka Bucket List

This post will be a work in progress, as I’m sure my wishes will change over time and there’s no way I can think of every thing I want to do in my life in one sitting. But here goes…. 1. I want to ride my horse in every state. I’ve managed Alabama, Tennessee and …

Days you wish would never end…

I haven’t been riding much lately – which is really strange considering that I no longer work outside the farm.  But it seems these days that I have SO much to do that I never get caught up anymore.   Or maybe it’s that I’m keeping myself more busy with all these little canning and happy …
