Writer on a Horse
And a Dog

The world looks better from the back of a horse and the roads of life are easier with a good dog beside you.

Help... I feel like I'm in one of those drug ads....

You know the one that says, "This is your brain... and this is your brain on drugs!"  It's an egg and they fried on a sidewalk.... well guess what... you could cook an entire meal on my sidewalk right now!!!  107 degrees right now!!!  My poor plants :(
I did water them this morning but they look pretty bad.  I'll water again as soon as that torch in the sky goes away.

And yes my dogs are getting not only water but a water bowl of ice water twice a day.  It's so funny to watch them jumping for the water bowl instead of the food bowl.

Love endures kids, grandkids and old age

Today is my 43rd wedding anniversary... The boy that turned my blood to boiling passion when I was a teen is now my best friend.  The passion is still there ... we just know we have forever and have learned to pace ourselves.

Amy has many great qualities but her good good heart is number one on the long list. 

Look at the link and read about her adventure this week and meet Lucky.

Happy Father's Day

My daddy will be 83 years old next month.  He's a little rough around the edges but he has a marshmellow heart that melts around his grandbabies.

What am I???

This isn't a riddle... why do I feel the best when I'm constantly moving?  I took a short nap yesterday... felt fine when I reclined on the couch to watch a movie... thirty minutes later I felt like a truck had hit me.  So I looked up things that constantly move, help me decided which one I am.

The Ocean Tide... well I can be a little salty and if you get in my way I'll pull you out with me

Time... I can age you if you stay around me much... sometimes my weird sense of humor can make the minutes past slowly

The Sun... Am I all powerful, hot tempered and everything revolves around me... yea sometimes

Air... I really don't like to hang around people just to move their hair, clothes, etc... if I move I want to show results

Maybe I'm a THINGAMABOB that goes her own way.  I think my name should be under Thingamabob in the dictionary.

Sign of the Summer days to come

Here I sit at 11:00am, still in pj and wrapped up in a blanket.... why do husbands keep the house so cold???... waiting for two girls to get up so we can go to the barn.

No work today ... well, I did do the chicken feeding and garden stuff... but no real work today.

Sure wish they would get up... I mean I've dropped two books... by accident of course :)

Wait... do I hear movement.... yep there are feet hitting the floor.  Here we come barn.

My Granny and Granddaddy and more

I talk about my Granny and share her wisdom so I thought I would share these pictures my cousin posted on facebook last night.  I'm also putting on a a family Christmas picture of my family before my baby brother came along.  I want to say it's early sixties. Granddaddy always had that pipe and Granny always wore a dress.  I don't know what's up with that hat. 
How do you love those yellow under your armpit pants I have on.... hahahah

Slow blogging ... here are the reasons why!

A busy week last week doing the "job" thingy... then I gave riding lessons three days in a row... nothing cuter than two little horse lovers riding horses.  Garden is coming in... got little cucumbers, tons of squash and zucchini and peppers... butterbeans have little pods on them but they take awhile to fill out.  Tons of green tomatoes but none ripe yet... cooking fried green tomatoes tonight with fresh turnip and collard greens. yummmmmmy

Too embarrass to post what Grandbabies do, but close

I'm a push over... why can't I say... no... when grandbabies ask for friends to come over.... Why oh why can't I remember the snotty comments, the hit and run and the many times I say "I'm going to put y'all in forever timeout... Why can't I remember all this... could it be that I have most-timers or is it because I what to believe the kids that they'll be good and not fight. 
Okay, got to go and stop the pillow fight that I know will go straight into a hitting, mad fight
Have a better afternoon than I will.

Two days off and nothing gained

Okay, off days are not good for me.  I get nothing done... no writing, no quilting, no gardening, no nothing
Why is it that when you have all the time in the world to do something ... it never gets done.
I've got to get in the kitchen and make chicken salad for supper but what am I doing... looking at facebook, checking out websites...
Friends, I have to make this statement... I'm worthless when I have nothing to do because I do nothing.

Thank goodness I'll be back in the groove tomorrow.  For now, I'm going to go back to doing nothing.  Have a great weekend.

Pictures are from a horse ride at 7 Springs  great place to visit.
