Little Man’s New Friend


I love that my boy ain't skeered of small crawly bugs! He just grabbed up this little caterpillar and let it crawl all over him. I didn't even want it on me and he tried to put it on me. I just pretended I need to go pee. It was quite a show though really. I was intrigued at how long he played with the little fuzzy friend. Had I had one of … [Read more...]

Home of the Rattlesnake Who Brought Rain


Yep, it's still hot which means rattlesnakes are still around.  Luckily we haven't had that many but here's one that could have easily bitten one of us.  It was right at the gate where we ALL go back and forth to the barn and shop. My father-in-law was walking that way to check on his chickens when, all of the sudden, he was running back my way … [Read more...]

Anna's … [Read more...]

Rays of Hope


Last night, we had another storm but right before it, there was this cloud with the sun peeking through and I thought it was a pretty site.  While looking at it, I was thinking of our situation and instantly felt inspirational and uplifted with hope.  Hope that things are okay and will only get better.  Now I'm not religious at all but I felt … [Read more...]

Nature In West Texas


Sometimes it's refreshing to just go outside and enjoy nature.  Of course here in West Texas, there ain't a whole lot to look at, not like in a place like Branson Missouri but you make do and move on.   Finally, after months and months of no rain, we got a small shower.  Not much, but enough to settle the dirt.  I'm tired so I'm just gonna post … [Read more...]
