Broken Silence & Progress

June of 2018 was my last post.  Two Thousand Eighteen!  Over a year and a half ago.  My how time does fly.  I’m unsure of where to go from here.  I’m tempted to reflect on those 18 months of silence.  And I’m tempted to shut them away, tucked back for another day and time.  There…

Just keep swimming

Hey y’all!  It’s Sunday morning, about 7:54.  Okay, it’s not ‘about 7:54’.  It IS 7:54.  My husband and step-son just left for Kingsville and will be gone a week.  My littlest person, while awake, has been sent on a chore mission.  And I am off work today.  From all my jobs.  This never happens. I…

Expressions

Earlier today I was browsing through the pictures of my daughter’s 8th birthday party. And I came across this gem. Child, not only did I tote you around inside me for 9 months, struggle to lose the weight you imparted on me, pay people to watch, entertain and educate you.  I drove and drug you…

Itty Bitty Fairy Land

Addie’s obsession with Fairy Houses bleeds over into most aspects of our lives in one way or another.  This particular day, a bird’s nest, moss, eucalyptus leaves, saw-tooth oak leaves and my potted tree were called upon to help continue the effort. I mean, seriously, why leave a perfectly good pot filled with just DIRT.…

Wicked Walk 5/19/2016

Well, I still have no news on ‘the move’.  But that is nothing new and something I’ve given to God, therefore, I refuse to worry about it.  Other than brief panic attacks.  But, I’m only human. Thursday, the 19th of May, was lovely.  It was cool, cloudy and rainy.  Since it was our day off, and Addie…

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…

Wicked Walk 5/3/2016

Due to recent events beyond my control, I find myself a little heavy-hearted.  Frustrated.  Irritated.  And a host of other words, most of which are unpleasant. Yet, there are these. Pictures from my walk on Tuesday with Addie, a motley dog and an enormous amount of water. And these, these are good.  So rather than…

Wicked Walk 4/12/2016

Good morning dear readers!  I hope this little walk finds you all well with the world going your way!  And, if not, maybe these photos will brighten your day.  Last night we had a wild storm, lightening, thunder, tiny bits of hail and enough rain to drown the town.  But the rain was needed, the…

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…

Wicked Walk 2/16/2016

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…
