Rain, Rain, go away!

I don't know about you but this past weekend was pretty crappy....we didn't get much done because of the rainy cold weather. And to top it all off I am sick (no not the "swine flu"), just a nasty cold. I know we need the rain here but it just makes me want to crawl up with a blanket and go to sleep...won't get anything done doing that. I'm sure the ground was great for all the fourwheelers though! you could hear them off in the distance....should think about getting some, my kids would love it!! And today it's still rainy and cold!!

Crazy Days...

Things have been absolutely crazy here lately. We did finally get all of our fruit trees planted and they seem to be doing pretty well. Our vegetable garden has not been as and previous obligations has kept us from getting that done. Now our little "farm" has grown since my husband returned, we now have a calf and two little piggies (well they were little when we got them, they are growing so fast)! I am working on a new computer so pics will have to come later after I figure out how to master this machine! Trying to get the hang of Vista I am so used to XP. We are also tearing down multiple buildings for somebody and in exchange he is letting us keep most of the's a great deal for us but has had it's drawbacks. We have already made a trip to the ER for stitches, opened up the good old first aid kit way too many times to count, and the battle against ticks has made me think they should come up with a tick collar for humans! I did get to use the sledgehammer though:) More crazy days to come, work still isn't done....

Turkey Day!

The day is almost here! Last year we had ham,
(not sure why) we usually always have turkey on
Thanksgiving and a ham for Christmas. I wonder
how many families out there actually make turkey
on "Turkey Day"! This year will just be me and the
kids so I will be making a small turkey and some of
the trimmings...still going to attempt a pumpkin pie
(not store bought). I will be putting my kids to work
in the kitchen which they should enjoy, they love to
help cook. As long as I don't burn anything and the
animals stay out of the food things should be good!
Enjoy Turkey Day Everyone!

My Neighbors

This is Buddy

Little Bit

Had to share pics of my hilarious neighbors.
They love their carrots and if your nice, they
will stay in their enclosure and not make you
chase them down the street! Yes we did that
last year with Buddy. He thought we needed
some exercise I guess. Running circles around
our house chasing after a huge horse was not
what I had on my to-do list that day! But if you
ever get in this predicament...a trail of carrots
works wonders, so I would go stock up just in

Who's Boss?

My computer decided I shouldn't use it for awhile
so I let it cool down so to speak, then I had to show
it who's boss....Out here you just have to man handle
things a little! Anyway back up and running, until the
next power outage that is. Winter is here and ice storms
will soon be coming I'm sure. This year I will be better
