Boggy Bottom

Road Trip!  There is nothing quite as good as a road trip.  Unless, it’s a road trip to see family and friends.  That makes it even better! I was able to visit recently, a Pitcher Plant Bog.  These are very unique.  It takes a very special ecosystem to support these carnivorous plants.  Addie and I…

Petite Frogs & Pussy Cats

The pussy cat population at our house is normally a population of one.  I prefer it that way, nobody gets stressed out or fights or does anything generally unpleasant.  Sleeping on the freezer for 23 hours, 3 minutes of Pilates to maintain that sexy figure plus eating at least 4 times a day are the norm for our…

Hi everyone!

Hi y’all!  I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth, although some days it feels that way!  I’m just hiding out, rather unwillingly, waiting on the blessed day I regain internet service!  Good news is, my darling husband informed me, they are coming to set the forms for concrete tomorrow!  Happy Day!  That is…

This old house…….

About a week or so ago, I told you about an old house I came across while walking.  It was open, so naturally I had to go inside!  Here are the pictures, as promised. I often wonder about houses such as these.  Who lived in them, who built them.  Why they are left to rot…

Progress

Progress, progress!  While it may be slow at times, we are crawling steadily toward our dream.  Well, I actually haven’t done anything other than write a check for some posts, take the men lunch a few times and photograph the entire effort.  But hey, someone has to do the laundry and feed the cat. The house…

Introducing……Glenfawn!

While I am residing without internet at my current home, I am VERY happy to report that the local eating/beer joint/hangout, has Wi-Fi!  Yay!  Happy day! So, for the first time in my life, I find myself on a Tuesday afternoon, camped out in a room full of strangers, blogging.  It is kinda fun (of…

Last Morning

Today is Wednesday.  It is 7:00 a.m. and I’m on my third cup of coffee.  I can hear the loggers down the road, the depressing sound of saws and falling trees gets more distant each day as they work their way deeper into the forest.  In contrast, there is a small herd of deer in…

I’m alive!

Hi everyone!  So, this has been an interesting year so far, the first 5 months were spent in limbo.  These folks from Houston wanted to buy our little farm in Maydelle, Texas.  It wasn’t for sale, I mean it’s my HOME, and has been for almost 10 years.  But, as the saying goes, “Money Talks”…

Down at the River……

Given the fact we live less than 3 miles from the beautiful Neches River, I’m sorry to say we only visit it 2 or 3 times a year, at best.  This particular Sunday morning, we ran lines.  It was about 7:15 and as soon as we crossed under the Highway 84 bridge, we noticed a…

Wicked Walk 5/10/2016

So, I’d like to pretend my lack of posts were due to some life-changing event.  Like child-birth.  Or Jesus coming back.  But, in reality, I’ve just kinda been doing life.  I snuck off to the pub the other night (with my husband) and had a marvelous time.  I went shopping with my daughter for a…
