Waiting Out The Storm

Had a long night of worry worry worry!! Snickers was showing signs of good change yesterday. Then the storms came in with a purpose now! We ended up with 4" of rain overnight. Lightening was crazy and to boot high winds. So much so that I could feel the front wall of the house moving in my hands!!! 
It is still a bit windy this morning and 42* so the windchill ??? It is dang cold compared to yesterday's 72*. We are looking for lows in the high 20's the next few nights. I have had my conversation with Snickers and explained that maybe she should "suck it up" until the nice weather is back. We shall see what happens I suppose.....
I did scare myself last night though....
Goat pen in the distance...can you see it?

There was a break in the storm so I decided I better go check on the girl. Well I looked on the radar to see how much of a break, it showed about 15-20 mins so I thought. I walked over there through the creek just got to her pen and the rain started coming down again. I brought my umbrella so no worries there. Then the lightening started in, making my hairs stand on end. Dangit!! Now what do I do? I stood there for a moment had a good conversation with the "Man Upstairs". The idea was put in my head to walk close to the tree line to the creek then run from there to the house. Ok, next little some what break I went for it. You all would have been laughing at me all the way. See running is not in my playbook. I look like the hunch back runnin! LOL! I have a bad knee and it is difficult for me to run plus I guess the being a bit on the heavy side. That extra 50 lbs tends to bother a girl about then! Well most of the time it does but really when running OH MY GOD! So while running close to the tree line, lightening everywhere, umbrella up.  I am shouting "Please God Don't Get Me" repeatedly..."Are You listening, I sure hope you are" "Please Don't Get Me Lord"....reach the steps to the house with much relief...."Thank You God Thank You". Then it dumped rain for hours!! In the dark I tried to take pics and was able to get one.
During lightening strike..notice the creek rising in the background
Needless to say, I will probably be a bit more cautious next time! On the farm we tend to do things most people would consider crazy. But when your animals are what bring you income you tend to overlook the "crazy" and do it anyway! LOL! 
The creek this morning is overrun 
I took the 4 wheeler over this morning. Annie and Peanut followed which isn't all that unusual. But Annie (13 yrs old) trying to cross the creek, poor girl, was up to her shoulders and she is an ol dog! She is a trooper. I cheered her on while she struggled to make it. She doesn't like getting on the 4 wheeler nor does she like to be picked up cuz it hurts her.  Peanut (3 yrs old) well she is still young. It was up to her belly.

Today is Mtn Man's interview, in fact he is there right now. 8am appt. Cross your fingers, pray, whatever you do, for us! Thanks ahead of time........
 Well, that is all I have for now.
Have a great day wherever you are in the world!

18 Year Anniversary

Not a wedding anniversary or the day I quit smoking anniversary or a job anniversary. This would be the death of my only two children's' anniversary. This day is a somber one for me.....I look back on the memories with happiness now instead of anger and despair. My babies are in a better place and some day I will get to be there with them!

I found this incredibly inciteful( is it even a word?) article that everyone should read when supporting bereaved parents & family. http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-17928/what-i-wish-more-people-understood-about-losing-a-child.html

Be sure to give your "littles" an extra hug for me.......

Change In The Air

 Good Morning Folks,

I am not sure what the weather is like where you are but here this morning it is cold again! 38* and the wind is blowing. Usually means we have a weather front coming. Looking over the weather yesterday they are calling for severe thunderstorms which may or may not include tornado's. You guessed it, we are in the "season" once again. I did see one meteorologist who proclaimed that there has not been one tornado in the whole united states in the month of March thus far. Which is a rarity! He said he had never seen it.....let's hope this isn't the storm that makes up for the lack of tornadoes. 

 ****************************************************************************

Mtn Man has an interview (2 day if everything goes right) come Thursday. We have been praying and praying....all together now everybody say a little one for us please. This new job would bring big changes for the two of us but it would also bring income to pay everything off including the house mortgage. Our businesses we have started, quite a few, just haven't got the calls like we thought maybe we would. Guessing people are having financial difficulties. Or it isn't what God wants us to be doing. It is frustrating to try and read God's mind sometimes. LOL! We put our efforts and money out there to start up what we think is the right thing then BAM no results. Try, Try again with no results or sometimes just a tease which fails. So for now we move on to an outside income until something different happens. God has blessed us thus far and we are extremely grateful!

************************************************************************


Yesterday, it was a beautiful sunshine day! We are at a standstill on the farm for many different reasons so we decided to head over to the neighbors place. We took the tractor and some tools to finish destructing the barn ( for those of you who are new...catch up here-3 previous posts). And after a longgg day it is finished. At the very end of the day while he was piling the last of the guke, he stops the tractor and runs around to the front tires to find he had an air leak. Yes, he caught a nail in the tractor tire! He tells me that he can fix it fairly simply but still an air hole is never good in a tractor tire! He limped it home. Thank goodness we were done anyhow.....so that project is complete as far as we are concerned. Here is some pics from yesterday.....


























When we arrived home yesterday there were three deer in the back field....so I grabbed the camera.....
the other two ran off....snickers in the fore front still prego..little man was runnin' aroun' the pen havin' fun!

Have a great day everybody!

 Love hearing from ya!

Making Memories

Ok so yesterday we left the farm early about 7 am headed for the Inlaws house. We had been invited over for a luncheon and some fellowship. Mtn Man had to return his dads pickup and trailer so I followed in the FJ. When we arrived we said our hello's and they were off to empty the tiller off the trailer. Then they ran to town with trailer in tow to Cousin Dave's house to help him transport an older truck that was going to the shop at the high school. With no hitches they arrived back in a short time.
We waited for the arrival of his cousins for a much needed visit! I told ya last week that Mtn Man's great uncle had died well his daughter (D) and her husband (P) who are about the folks age are the cousins in question. P gets so excited about things on the farm. They both are city folks and anything farm related is just a treat for them. MIL, bless her heart, made up a big meal for everybody with a little help from me. The guys built a campfire in the pit out front. We all sat around and chatted for hours. What a wonderful time we all had! Take a look....



 D had brought some gifts for all of us from her parents house. One of those gifts will be treasured for years to come and was gifted to us. A mesquite wall clock that was her dads, Uncle Bill's that hung down in his part of the basement. Last night I wrote on the back of it the little story and who's it had belonged to previous....making a family heirloom! We have a few of these items in our house...I am all about preserving family history. I put a new battery in it and hung it on our wall this morning. This will be a fabulous addition to our new house when we get it built! Thank you both for this gift it will be treasured for years to come!!

 Love hearing from ya!

Sunday Passage

I can't believe we are almost one quarter into this year! Blows my mind how fast time is going.....yikes! I hear it gets even faster....


Ok today's scripture.....John 1:1-14 KJV

 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Quick Peek

Welcome New Friends......Take a look around and if any questions just holler (marye.masterson@gmail.com) love to hear from ya!!
*******************************************************************************
I cannot remember if I told ya about moving the daffodils around. I have so many out front by the sidewalk that I wanted to move them to other places to live. Out by the teepee and the wet weather creek I moved some and in between the fruit trees. Oh and out back on the hill up from the deck. It took forever to get that many to move because the roots of the trees and the grass made for difficult digging. But I wanted to make a pathway with the daffodils because they are so thick. So I removed all that were in the way, really!
So here are my pretties making their way in their new homes.
TeePee and wet weather creek area...fruit trees to the right


Up behind the back deck area...blue ribbon around red maple tree


  I am so happy they like their new homes! I will probably move more when we get closer to destruction of house!
Then I look up on the hill behind the future out house area and my studio area to see some more daffodils at the old old homestead area....aren't they pretty!


 Just a little bit to the right is the area where my studio will be someday. I have a pleasant surprise growing there......Wild Garlic! Who needs to plant any when you have it wild!! Smells so good!! I have known about some in the power line right away but found this growing this year! So excited!
Studio Area...behind me is the garden

Wild Garlic
***************************************************************************
The Garden


Well we got up this morning and Mtn Man looked it over. We talked about it a bit and came to the conclusion that maybe the burning should keep going until the hay was mostly burnt up. So he went to working on it. We had brought the tiller ( tractor attach) home but we will take it back to FIL so he can use it for a clients garden on Monday. We will tackle the tilling later like maybe next weekend. 
******************************************************************************
In the meantime I have got to stop procrastinating and get my tax info to the tax man. I HATE this time of year for taxes anyhow! And to boot I was born on that day! Yes, HA HA! See I have a reason to stress....told that to a doctor one time and he just laughed at me!!
Ok folks I am off to put my feet up! Started my spring cleaning today and my tootsies are Ti-Red!
Look for tomorrows scripture.....
Toodles!

********************************************************************************
Came home and started the garden on fire! Will let that burn through the night and tomorrow put the hurts to it with the big tiller!
Until next time...give your loved ones a big hug and kiss! Say a prayer for the ones who are to far away....

Happenings

finished ...will sell

missed the mate by a second

Rhubarb

First Flower does it count?

Daffodils coming out in a hurry!

She is at her wits end with pregnancy

cleaned her pen so much nicer

Leveling it out so he can put in his blacksmith shop

wind caught all that paper and half of it was flying off! He got up there and reattached what he could the rest will have to wait. The only thing we can figure is the wood dried out real good the staples shrank into the wood. 
Mtn Man's uncle died yesterday...funeral is friday. 
Mtn Man is still doing interviews and we are starting yet another business which we hope will take off. Stay tuned!

Tar Paper Baby

Had a break in the weather. Mtn Man has been frettin' over the roof not havin' tar paper on it. So he let the morning dew wear off and hopped on the roof!
Little spungy in places but for the most part it was all good! 
He got the one side done....we had a touch of rain in the in between but he kept goin' until it was all done. Me, well I stayed on the ground chasin' the hose (kept it from tanglin') and bein' the cheerleader! 
Now we wait for the metal.......
