My Sofa and Sugar Cube

I am sitting on my new-to-me sofa.  It is in my new living room and I’m staring at a blank wall that will one day house a book shelf, television, various geodes, paintings and an elk shed or two.  Two only if I find another one, ha!  I have the internet.  It is amazing.  We aren’t…

Wicked Walk 18~March~2017

Hello everyone!  I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 months since I’ve been able to blog.  Lots has happened, including but not limited to the following. A) I painted my front door green. B)  It’s a bad, bright green therefore I am going to have to repaint it. C) The cows are settled in their new…

To Build a House

When my husband and I began this adventure called “Building a House”, everyone said it would be stressful, cost more and take much longer than we expected.  Boy, were they right!  In my springy, starry-eyed optimistic brain, I thought, “Pooh, we’ll be in by Christmas!” That didn’t happen.

Wicked Walk 1/21/2017

It has been ages since I’ve taken a really long walk.  A walk which I didn’t have to rush thru like a mad person.  My main purpose of walking today was to get some pictures of these awesome mushrooms I found the previous day.  They peeked their little heads above the tall grass.  Red, slender tubes,…

Electricity

So, this exciting thing happened a few weeks ago.  We got ELECTRICITY!  Let’s not dwell on the fact that it cost twice what we expected.  Or that the people clearing a right-of-way cut down the only dogwood tree I’ve found on the entire place (which wasn’t even ON the right-of-way.)  Or that they didn’t fix…

Wicked Walk 1/14/2017

My first walk of 2017 was short and rather uneventful.  I had spent the morning planting shrubs, sanding various wooden objects and listening to Hair Bands on Pandora.  Some of the best advice I ever received was to go ahead and pay the 4.99 a month for commercial free radio.  It’s insanely better. Anyway, I…

Wicked Walk 11/25/2016

I know, I know….this walk is from November.  But I’ve been a little busy with the holidays, building a house, working and home schooling and trying to keep everyone in clean underwear.  And you know, life. I can not tell you how ready I am in to be back in a house of my own.  To sip coffee…
