Milk Baby's

These calf's are orphans, so we are feeding them milk.

It took them awhile to figure out what it was, but now they are waiting for you morning & night to bring them a bucket of milk, which they slurp up greedily!

Don't forget to scroll down & take a guess who my mysterious visitor was, for a chance to win one of my handmade necklaces.

Mysteriuos Visitor

I had a mysterious visitor at my house last week.
Can anyone guess who she is?
Anyone who leaves a comment saying who you think she is gets put into a drawing to win this beaded necklace.
So take a guess.
I will announce the winner on Monday Sept. 1rst.
Good luck!

Chicken or Dog?

This chicken seems to think she's a dog.
As soon as I open the chicken coop door in the morning, she heads for the house and hangs out around the porch with the dogs all day. She wanders into the garage and I have even seen her lounging in the dog house.
Silly chicken!

House full of girls

My husband Willie had a house full of girls this week & enjoyed every minute.
Two of his sisters & two nieces drove out from Wisconsin. We had not seen them for over 20 years, so it was good to get to know them again.
We packed allot into the two and a half days they where here. We got to bed late & up early, so I'm sure everyone is feeling a bit tired.
His sisters talked Willie into dragging out his guitars, so we had a jam session one night. They did "Puff the Magic dragon", "Blowing in the Wind", & other old folksy songs. His niece Andria is a music major.
Sister Twila is a baker. Willie has quite a sweet tooth, so Twila & Becky baked Delicious cookies & pies, some that are in our freezer for later consumption.
We target practiced with the 22 rifle & pistol off the back porch & went 4-wheeling all around the ranch.
We have the neatest rocks & agates here, so we gathered a bucket full & some sage brush for them to take back as souvenirs.
Niece Katrina is an artist and is going to do a painting for us. I can't wait to see her masterpiece!

Day Lilly's

"Start by doing what's necessary,
then do what's possible,
and suddenly you are doing the impossible."

My day Lilly's are finally blooming. I planted them last fall and wasn't sure they would survive the long, cold winter. But here they are sprouting out pretty yellow flowers.
