Wicked Walk 4/28/2016

I went shopping today.  Shopping for me is not a fun task, a thing to be celebrated nor an outing of great anticipation.  It’s more like a ‘I need some Tums and a Vodka on the Rocks’ kinda’ experience.  Today, however, turned out surprising well.  My darling child, all of whose pants have mysteriously been…

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…

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…

Do you ever wonder why you blog?  Or, why you read blogs?  Sometimes I do. However, I keep coming back to the same answer. I blog for me.  And, when I have any spare time at all.   I love reading YOUR blogs! From New Zealand to Florida, Illinois to Maine, Kenya to Mississippi, Canada to Finland,…

Do you ever get headaches?  The kind that blind your mind and make you want to scream?  I do.  Not very often, thank God, only 3 or 4 a year.  I had one this week.  The day was beautiful and I had a ton of wonderful things planned, including a blog for you.  That didn’t…

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 2/2/2016

I never dreamed I’d be taking a walk the second day of February in 78 degree weather.  My fashionable sweat shirt was entirely too warm.  Yet, there I was, walking the back woods around 4:00 p.m.  Poor Addie, I left confined to math homework, which resulted in many tears before the days end.  Bloody math.…

First of all, I’ve decided that even though I’m going to post a walk every Wednesday, it doesn’t mean the walk was actually taken on a Wednesday.  This will relieve me a great deal.  Thank you. So.  Today was windy, cold and sunny.  The entire day spread out like a banquet before me and I…

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…

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…
