I have the silliest cat. Daisy does this thing when she's cleaning herself, and if she gets distracted, she forgets to put her tongue back in and just sits there, making this goofy face at everybody. It's hilarious! Now the kids distract her on purpose just to get a big laugh out of her … Continue reading Silly Daisy!

Happy birthday, Ted!
My sweetie turned 46 today. He already got the headgate system and the impact wrench he wanted for himself this past weekend, so I had to really shop to find things he didn't have but would use. He is not an easy man to shop for! He did like the screwdriver sets from Janeesa and … Continue reading Happy birthday, Ted!
I've been on spring break all week, and I have accomplished so much! I tore apart two bedrooms and deep cleaned them floor to ceiling, moved furniture, tossed and tossed and tossed (donations and trash bags), and decorated. Unfortunately I now have huge baskets of laundry from Sahara's room and realized she just doesn't have … Continue reading Spring break
Happy birthday, Dad!
This is my favorite picture of Dad. He was sharing a pretzel with Beef during one of Beef's many escapes. Dad has always had a soft spot for animals. I get it from him. 🙂

They don't get to scratch, peck, dust bathe, eat bugs, eat grass, stretch out in a … Continue reading Where do your eggs come from?
Smart car mileage – WOW!!! WOW!!! WOW!!!
I drove a LOT this past week for work, so I had to gas up twice. 246 miles ÷ 4.503 gallons = 54.63mpg!!! This was ALL highway driving (here to Cleveland and then gas on the way back!!!). Wow!!!!!
That bucket is useful!
For years, I've wanted to widen the top of our driveway where we park. It was narrow and bottlenecked due to the hill on the left and the chicken coop and picket fence on the right. Ted got that bucket on the tractor last weekend and spent Friday evening cutting away part of the hillside … Continue reading That bucket is useful!
259.8 miles ÷ 6.408 = 40.543 mpg This was mostly highway driving.
May you enjoy a well deserved rest today!
Bessie is four years old!
Bessie was so tiny when I brought her home from the flea market four years ago. She weighed about 75 pounds. She could suck down a gallon of milk in a matter of seconds from this bottle. Side note: This is my all time favorite photo of myself. I don't care how messy or chubby … Continue reading Bessie is four years old!
