Wicked Walk 1/3/2016

My first walk of the New Year was taken not on a Wednesday but on the holiday weekend.  My family and I made a long-over due trip to visit family in Mississippi.  My husband hails from this lovely state and much of his family still live there.  Addie and I managed to sneak into the…

Hello and Happy New Year to all my dear readers!  I hope your holiday season was blessed and stress-free.  If it wasn’t, I’m glad it’s over and let’s hope that 2016 is an improvement.  You probably saw on the news that last week, in Texas, we had 80 degrees and sunny weather on Friday.  On Saturday,…

It’s almost Christmas and all the crazies are out shopping.  At least, I guess they are, I wouldn’t know. I don’t want to know. Instead, I’ll share some sights captured in the early morning hours. Here is what I saw. Nosey thought we were going for a real, bone-fide walk. Not just a trek thru…

As I sit here, listening to Hugh Jackman belt out tunes from ‘Oklahoma’, I find it difficult to recall what I did preceding my walk last Wednesday.  However, in my defense, I find it hard to focus on anything when Hugh Jackman is involved. There were trees, mushrooms and leaves present. And it was late…

Wednesday, December 2nd, was, I assume, glorious. I would not know.  I felt like hell.  Or death warmed over.  Maybe even death warmed over in hell, if there is such a thing.  But that doesn’t make sense because if I felt like death warmed over and I was in hell, it would be really hot. …

I spent last Wednesday franticly baking, cooking, scrubbing, scurrying and basically losing my mind in preparation of Thanksgiving.  The lady I work for was hosting thirty people.  My grandparents on my mother’s side were hosting thirty-two people and my dad’s side, twenty-three.  And I got to help all of them.  Which was great and glorious and fine,…

Here is the walk that didn’t get published last week, it was a brief walk but a good one. This is what I saw. The recent rain had mushrooms and fungi popping up all over the place.  As a matter of fact, the radar showed rain moving in early and staying all day.  Thus, the reason…

Confession

If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time, you know I publish a ‘Wicked Walk’ every Wednesday.  Only, this past Wednesday, I didn’t.  This was due to several reasons. Number One.  Randy, my oldest and dearest rooster, has bumblefoot.  I’d never heard of it but was trolling the internet trying to find…

Wicked Walk 11/4/2015

November is a glorious month!  Changing leaves, cool mornings, mild days, deer season, various excuses to make unhealthy desserts and use vast amounts of real whipping cream and mascarpone cheese.  Yes, November is the month for me!  And this first walk of November was quite pleasant.  After taking in my share of coffee on the…

Wicked Walk 10/28/2015

Yesterday was my 33rd birthday and it was lovely.  It was made even more lovely by the fact we recently received over 2 inches of rain and a cool front.  So this Wednesday I donned a long-sleeve shirt and hit the woods about 8:30 a.m. Here is what I saw. My Redbud tree, hanging on…
