You'd better sit down. When I tell you how I spent my weekend, you'll be asking me, “Where do I sign up?” Driving home from work, the window on the driver's side of the car started to go down, but would not go back up. The motor for its power just made gurgling noises. So … Continue reading Resolve
I love taking long hot baths. When my husband was building the house at our ranch, we decided we were going to install the deepest, longest tub we could find. We did just that. We also put insulation all around the underside of said tub, so the water would remain hot longer. Now I can … Continue reading Being Pruney
I dream of a better tomorrow where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives. I discussed this topic in depth with the chickens at my ranch, and we arrived at a consensus that CLM, Chicken Lives Matter. Now, in all seriousness, I believe all lives matter. From the smallest to … Continue reading Why did the chicken cross the road?
At the end of May, we were banding the boy calves and ear tagging them. It was pretty mucky in the pen where we were coaxing them toward the squeeze chute.

Branching out on my own, clients were precious and I felt I could not lose any. There was a point one month were I wondered if I could afford to buy a tube … Continue reading Mmmm, Pizza
You can learn something new every day. My husband showed me this the other day. He asked, “Did you know VPL is a real problem? This commercial says so.” I said, “No, what's VPL?” Visible Panty Line. Wow, as a woman with a vast and extensive wardrobe, I never even considered it before that day. … Continue reading V.P.L. (Visible Panty Line)
It's all a matter of perception. I perceive the same 100 feet to be a much shorter distance during the spring, summer, and fall, than I do in the winter. Why? It is finally warm enough to pull out the 100 foot hose in order to fill up some of our animal's water tubs. It … Continue reading Coccinellidae
I am seeing people differently now, through social distancing. I'll admit I took seeing people for granted and having interactions with them. This new normal is actually kind of fun for me. I have to been alert to new possibilities and avenues to watch and assist people. I have always been a people watcher. No, … Continue reading I.C.U.
I have a lovely, creative friend who is a bit of a wordsmith. The way she plays with words astounds and amazes me, and always bring a smile to my face. We were discussing a situation last week and she emailed me her new, made up word: acquicceptance. At that moment it was like God … Continue reading Acquicceptance
