IM BACK!!!!!!!!!!

Well i decided to post on this blog again. I miss just being able to write anything down somewhere....Lots of Changes at our house, slowly getting the remodeling done...yipee!!!....and i mean S L O W L Y!!!! :o) We no longer have our goats. After my daisy passed away, i decided to get rid of them all. And it has been sooo much easier not to worry about them all the time. My bottle baby calf, Duke is doing well, and growing...he is so sweet!! Since we no longer have the goats, well i just cant have an empty we bought us two registered longhorn heifers..... they are soo gentle, will eat out of your hand. Their names are DD and Phantom. The man we bought them from in Centerville had named them already. We have had them about 3 months now i guess, their horns have grown alot, and they are adjusting well. :o)

This is Phantom, I think she is soo pretty.....she is more tame than the other one, the other one has a little more spunk in her...

This is DD, or Double dip is her registered name, she is my favorite out of the two, of course i would choose the spunky one...  ;o)

Well thats that for now, just thought i would write on here a bit. Let people know i am still out here...            
I am getting two more heifers this week, a solid red one and a black one.  Ill post some pics when we get them here.  Bye yall!!!!!!!

"Shocking" Experience

Busy week almost behind me..Thank Goodness!!! Had TONS of labs drawn... 2 MRI's....and today...well it was the last of the tests for now. Had an EMG done, and let me just say...i was terribly worried about the needle in the muscle part, but that was NOT the worst part. The shocks they give you...the Dr said, it will feel like touching a "little doggie fence" well the first ones were ok, then it went downhill from there...IT WAS AWFUL!!!!!!! Friend and I wanted to ask him what kind of dog are you keeping in that fence? Cause it wasnt like any hot wire fence I've ever touched.... 10 times worse. And he saved the biggest and worse one for last. It jolted me BAD. Think I came off the table some. My friend that went with me said she was waiting for my fist to go flying..Dont think it didnt cross my mind!!! Whew...I was sooo glad it was over with!!
Now, the waiting begins....hopefully they will figure out what is wrong!

Blah Blog!!!!

Havent written on this this for a few....too busy!!! We had our pastures baled this last weekend...VERY HOT!! Got 181 bales for the winter. BUT, thing is, there was only Carl and I to haul them...toooo much for me....HOT & DUSTY... Poor carl loaded most of them, cause i drove and picked up too...not so fun!!! SORE SORE SORE!!!!!!!!

My Thoughts for Thursday.....

“Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.”
~Anthony Brandt

My thoughts for Thursday…
I’ve been thinking a lot about family lately. When I was younger, playing with cousins….a lot of fun times, and mischievous ones too… Sooo many good times with them… (Love yall!!!) Makes me sad that we haven’t kept in touch, but there is always time to change that. Maybe things will change. Been thinking about who we have lost, on my mom’s side of the family…first my granny dorris…which was an enormous one for me personally…I loved her like no body’s business…then we lost my granddaddy dorris…another devastation… they were such good people….then my uncle (mom’s brother) tragically left us. That just really hit too close to home. I feel really sad for my mom she has NO family left of her original family.. :o(

Then we lost both my husbands parents with in 3 months of each other. Very shocking about them, and devastating. I truly thought of them as another set of parents.. they welcomed me into their family with open arms…Guess current situations make you rethink about things and start making you think of people more. I just miss everyone we still have and everyone we have lost. Well that was kinda a dreary post, sorry bout that…Oh well, that’s what these things are for right?????? Have a good Thursday.

Sunday's Activities

Sunday started slow, for me at least, Carl is always up with the chickens, literally...i finally got up and decided to document our day... went up to the front of the driveway to water my new Knockout Rose bush...Cant wait till it takes i decided to take a pic of the pretty view looking down the driveway.

Our Front Entrance

Pics of our new door not done with putting up siding yet, but is coming along... 

Here is another shot of the new door and on the right the new windows we
put in, just have to finish doing the siding, then "my favorite" painting...eek

Watching Carl "hack" the Hackberry trees they will be gone this summer, yipee!!!!

Here is ANOTHER tree that fell, but the good thing is it is oak, so BBQ here we come!!!!

A shot of the trees we have planted, the tiny one is from my grandparents pecan tree. :o)

A closer shot of that wonderful pecan tree....

Here is another tree we got from Mama Jeanne/Grandaddy's Pecan Trees, hoping they thrive so my kids or grandkids can enjoy them as much as we all have through out the years.... bring on the pecans...yea i know, it will be a while...  :o(
"Ohh she's got the camera i gotta pose!"
Here is another shot of the big pecan, and of course, Eagle saw me taking pics as you can see in the next pic he is a ham...

Here is his "pose"  and the tree....
And final picture, we found these two babies sunday morning, this mama was determined to hatch some eggs, after a while we finally let her and here she is breaking up the feed for her little babies, she is so proud.

Our first group of 2010 babies!!!!

Here's our first crop of babies for 2010, 8 babies born, all boys except 1 girl, sooo not fair!!  Carl was excited about it though..cause the boys won this time...we always have a little competition on whether there will be more boys born or more girls, well he sure won this time... :o(

The Sign headed down our driveway..

Daisy and her Baby

Another pic of my Daisy and her baby.

"Bubba" wanting to go for a ride on golf cart.

We had to close the tailgate of the golfcart, he SERIOUSLY
wanted to go for a ride..  :o)

The Escapee....he has found a way to get out to get the same grass
on the other side of the fence, but he goes right back in when he wants
his mama...or when we try to catch him to put him little guy.

Hoping for a little rain

Carl and I put fertilizer on the pasture and the front yard this evening. The weather man says there is a "chance" for rain, so i sure am hoping it comes true...

Memories..of the good ol' days......

This makes me sad to hear, but it makes me happy to remember the good times that I actually remember growing up. I remember singing this with my cousins all the time. Things sure have changed so much, everyone has grown up and moved on with their lives, unfortunatly I dont get to see/keep in touch with any of them, that is what makes me sad. If I can find a photo I will attach it to this post sometime. ~Jolie
