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…

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 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…

Fairy Land

Addie, my daughter who is 7, has recently become slightly obsessed with fairies and fairy houses.  She builds fairy houses EVERYWHERE.  I no longer have any empty clay pots, warped metal bowls or unused containers of any kind.  They have all congregated under the porch holding various bits of moss, mud, water, acorn shells, sea…

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 10/21/2015

Let’s try this again, shall we?  My fingers got ahead of my brain yesterday and some of you darling readers were delivered an almost blank post. I’m sorry about that.  Here we go.  Again. 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…

Wicked Walk 8/5/2015

Hello Peeps!  The Texas heat has been brutal, 106 the past few days and I’ve lost one hen to the temp’s already.  So my family and I decided it would do us good to cool off a bit at a friends houseboat in Kentucky.  We drove then walked, boated and floated about for a weekend.…

Collection

I have missed my blog and all my blogosphere friends these past couple of months, I hope to get back in the groove soon but only time will tell.  Losing Stripe-Stripe was rough and today my darling cat, Agent Orange, has turned up missing.  And he never misses breakfast.  Never. Life in the country is rough…
