In case you were wondering…… I (we) went on a vacation for a week.  Two weeks ago. It was great. But, I lost my momentum in my blogging and posting commitment that I made to myself.  Oh well.  Sh*t happens. Here I am. Two weeks later.  With a tan. Friends keep asking. How was […]

Yesterday was the winter solstice.  I consider this to be the first day of the new year.  I think the calendar makers screwed up. They were most assuredly men. Everything had to come out mathematically correct.  The days start getting longer today. Everything changes.  Today should be January 1st.  Wouldn’t that be nice if we […]

Last Saturday I found my tribe. I took Cowgirl-Red to Woodward Oklahoma for a Women’s Ranch Rodeo.  It was sponsored by the 1000 Hills Ranch Church.  They put on western events throughout the year, but this one is very dear to my heart.  These are my home girls. My tribe. These are 4-woman teams of real […]

While taking my spiritual fast for two weeks in December I had a lot of time to think. A lot of time to think about turning 60 this year. I think about it all the time. Not in a morbid way. In a way like this…. “Wow. I’m turning 60. I can’t believe it. I […]

Over the holidays I did a Spiritual Fast for two weeks. Not a food fast,  but a Facebook fast. Food would have been easier. I was increasingly aware that my focus in life had become all forms of social media. Facebook mostly. Don’t get me wrong, I really love social media. I love the internet. […]

I flew to California last week to visit my girl. As I was leaving the house for the airport, I looked over at my cowboy hat and thought “Why not?”  I’ve always thought that flying with my hat would be a pain, and it is. However,  those of you who know me know how attached […]

OK. I know my title contains improper grammar. However, I’ve already spent enough time on this post so I need to move on. 10 things on which I’ve spent less time? whatever OK the gist of the story is this. I bought the little run down house in Crazy Town.   I was going to fix it […]

  Oh, I forgot to mention that during my last foray into “Crazy Town” I bought some real estate there. Really, I did.Here’s a picture of it. At the time I had a full-time job in Crazy Town. I was the personal assistant to the Mayor. The exact same day I closed on my new […]

My friend, the matriarch of this beautiful ranch, sent me a card this morning that read…. “Welcome to Autumn……. the finest time of the year!”     Earlier in the week she asked me if I’d seen the “Pitcher Sage”. It’s a delicate, periwinkle blue wildflower that grows in Kansas in the late summer and […]

This is the view from the top of my horse on this beautiful day on this beautiful ranch on the 15th day of September, 2013  It is the harbinger of fall. I have a new camera. It’s slung over my shoulder. One hand on the reins. One hand on the camera. Looking down at the […]
