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…

New Year

Can you believe it is almost February?  An entire month into 2018.  The holidays and past month have been somewhat of a blur, time really does seem to travel faster the older you get.  The last time I wrote to you it was opening day of deer season.  I’m sorry to report I did not…

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 ~ Labor Day 2017

Good afternoon, dear reader!  I’ve been away for quite some time, trying to get back into the swing of things.  While I was gone, WordPress changed formats so I’m thoroughly confused.  Therefore, if this post looks bad, isn’t centered or whatever……I’m sorry.  I don’t do change well and I’ve had a lot of them thrown…

To Build a House

When my husband and I began this adventure called “Building a House”, everyone said it would be stressful, cost more and take much longer than we expected.  Boy, were they right!  In my springy, starry-eyed optimistic brain, I thought, “Pooh, we’ll be in by Christmas!” That didn’t happen. As I am staring down February in…

Wild Game

With Thanksgiving a very recent memory, I would like to reflect on what I am thankful for.  I realize, as I troll social media and the internet, not everyone approves of hunting. Or raising your own food.  And, I find it rather funny, that I was not a hunter until I met my husband in my…

Auntie Rachel

As you may have gathered from my last post, I’m an AUNTIE!  Auntie Rachel.  I’ve never been an Auntie before.  Although, I am happy to report I have several lovely Aunties as examples.   So I know what is required of Aunties from day one.  Pictures.  Lots and lots of pictures.  Snacks.  Treats.  Homemade rolls.  Sleepover’s. …

Sweet Home Alabama

Remember that Pitcher Plant bog a few days ago?  Well, it wasn’t the only thing we saw during our weekend trip!  While my large self cannot fit into my bathing suit at the moment, it didn’t stop me from enjoying the sun, sand, and company. Addie could hardly contain herself and as soon as we hit the…

Boggy Bottom

Road Trip!  There is nothing quite as good as a road trip.  Unless, it’s a road trip to see family and friends.  That makes it even better! I was able to visit recently, a Pitcher Plant Bog.  These are very unique.  It takes a very special ecosystem to support these carnivorous plants.  Addie and I…
