Gophers, Deer and a Desk

This past weekend marked opening day of deer season in Texas.  And, considering we have a half of beef and several wild pigs in the freezer, I have decided to trophy hunt.  In other words, unless it is a massive buck, I’m just gonna sit and watch and enjoy being perched in a tree.  Alone.…

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…

Wicked Walk 11/11/2015

Meanwhile, back in Texas, there was a scarecrow trail. We went. And walked.  And it was 5:00 in the afternoon.  The…

Wicked Walk 9/2/2015

I love September.  I love that it ushers in fall, cooler weather (sometimes), deer and elk season are right around the corner and that means camping and camp fires and mountains and well, I just love September.  My first walk this September occurred in town but that was okay, Addie and I ventured out of…
