Wicked Walk 4/5/2016

Things have been crazy around here, selling stuff, buying stuff, putting up broilers, attending parties and so on.  But Addie and I stole a few minutes to take a quick walk Here is what we saw. White clover, blooming beautifully. Plus a small child with a purple, flower weed thing. I think it is Toad…

Do you ever wonder why you blog?  Or, why you read blogs?  Sometimes I do. However, I keep coming back to the same answer. I blog for me.  And, when I have any spare time at all.   I love reading YOUR blogs! From New Zealand to Florida, Illinois to Maine, Kenya to Mississippi, Canada to Finland,…

Wicked Walk 3/1/2016

March blew in, literally, 3 days ago.  Grabbing my camera in the late afternoon, I headed for the woods.  Which were quite windy. Here is what I saw. Spring flowers and clovers alongside hay from the Fall. Such a contrast of color! Choo-Choo Train Tracks. I never noticed this before but I’m guessing the plates…

Do you ever get headaches?  The kind that blind your mind and make you want to scream?  I do.  Not very often, thank God, only 3 or 4 a year.  I had one this week.  The day was beautiful and I had a ton of wonderful things planned, including a blog for you.  That didn’t…

School, laundry and chickens dominated the day.  However, the Texas weather has been…….awesome.  So we both took a break from our duties and explored the yard, field and creek. Here is what we saw. Addie took over my camera, and along with five thousand, two hundred and eighteen pictures of my car, the horse trailer and…

Wicked Walk 2/9/2016

I spent this particular day waiting for 3 hours at the tax office, only to discover they were unable to see me.  Thus, my morning was spent.  I arrived home and threw together a lunch for my starving child.  Then I attacked my fruit trees with pruning shears. Then I went for a walk. Here…

Wicked Walk 2/2/2016

I never dreamed I’d be taking a walk the second day of February in 78 degree weather.  My fashionable sweat shirt was entirely too warm.  Yet, there I was, walking the back woods around 4:00 p.m.  Poor Addie, I left confined to math homework, which resulted in many tears before the days end.  Bloody math.…

Wicked Walk 1/26/2016

First of all, I’ve decided that even though I’m going to post a walk every Wednesday, it doesn’t mean the walk was actually taken on a Wednesday.  This will relieve me a great deal.  Thank you. So.  Today was windy, cold and sunny.  The entire day spread out like a banquet before me and I…

Wicked Walk 1/13/2016

I have recently found myself in somewhat un-charted waters.  This is not a bad thing, simply, new.  And it has taken up a lot of my time, efforts and thoughts.  If all pans out, there will be lots of fun fodder for me to share with you all.  If not, I’ll be back to my…

Wicked Walk 1/6/2016

Can you believe we are already nearly two weeks into the new year?  I know I can’t.  Time keeps flying by!  However, I was able to walk with my favorite, little human recently and we were on the trail of snail. This is what we saw. I know my friend Cherity, over at Almostfarmgirl, will…
