My life is like this jacket right now.   I feel like a  discombobulated cowgirl riding a tornado. Yeehaw! Instead of Pecos Bill, I’m Pecos Jill!   My feet hurt and now I know why so I bought this bracelet cuff online. My new motto.     We started calving on the exact same […]

  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 […]

 Food I love food.  I love eating food. I love looking at good food. I love everything fresh and healthy. But I don’t like the preparation and clean up phase.  It seems like such a waste of time. ‘Time’ being my most precious commodity these days.  I’ve gone through phases in my life where I […]

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 […]

For me 2016 was the Year of the Cow.  I was able to fulfill  a life dream of owning my own Red Angus cow herd.  I bought 140 first calf heifers exactly a year ago. We brought them home and proceeded to calve them out here on the ranch. We also have some Black Angus […]

Yesterday I performed the dreaded task of re-applying for health insurance for 2017. I was notified by Blue Cross Blue Shield and HealthCare.gov that they were not offering my plan for 2017 and I needed to update my application and choose a new plan.  I received that notice in September.  The deadline is tomorrow.  Do […]

    Hi friends.  Since before the election I felt myself slipping deep into anger, despair, depression and a general heaviness. Literally, the weight of the world was on my neck, my shoulders, hips, knees and feet. I know you know what that feels like. It hurts. It hurts physically and spiritually. I had to […]

Thursday Morning. We got a better start at daylight.  I only had one cup of coffee in bed. Then saddled up and long trotted about 2 miles through our place and across our neighbors pasture that we lease.  I met up with our cowboys for the day (Day Riders).  They are also our good friends. […]

This morning I was supposed to ride the north end of this pasture where we turned the cattle into yesterday.  Remember yesterday?  We started at the very end of the horizon of these big ugly power lines.   This is a pasture that we lease. Maybe we would feel different if we got the money […]

Somewhere along the line I got derailed from blogging about everyday ranch life.  So here is my attempt to get back in the habit.  I really enjoyed blogging. It was fun. And sometimes I was funny. Yesterday we needed to get some pairs in and doctor some sore eyes. The calves get sore eyes from […]
