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 […]

My studio. This is where the magic happens friends. My studio. Which is just an extra room in our walk-out basement. I think we originally planned it to be an “exercise” room. As if that was ever going to happen. I don’t think it really qualifies as a basement. It’s just the lower level of […]

Hey Christmas!  Yes, You. I’m just not that into you anymore. So why are you making me feel so guilty? Why are you making me feel so ….. anti-American?  Why do you look at me like I’m a failure as a woman?  You think I’m lazy?  Why are you making me feel like I’m not […]

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. […]

Picture this …….. Super Moon. 5:30 AM alarm Catch ’em. Feed ’em.  Saddle ’em. Load ’em in the dark. Meet up with the cowboys. Gather ’em. Sort ’em and work ’em. In my former life as an accountant with an 8-5, I found it consistently difficult getting to work on time. (for 20 years) I’ve […]

This was originally posted in 2011.  Under the title “Vintage Quilt Blocks.”  I promised you another post when I finished the backing and binding so here it is. (3 years later…..  don’t judge, …. I’ve been busy) I know I’ve said this before. But this may very well be my favorite project to date. In […]

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 […]

We are on the other side of some wicked winter weather. When I took these pictures a couple of weeks ago, all I could think of was ……. Yuck!  But today, I’m thinking something else. Gratitude. I was walking to the barn to feed and it was cold and blowing snow.  I usually take the […]

It’s been cold this week.  Not Wyoming cold, but Kansas cold. And it snowed. Not Wyoming snow, but Kansas snow. I stayed home one whole day just because I could. Then cabin fever set in and I ventured out to town. The little town (Sun City, pop 40), not the big town (Medicine Lodge, pop […]

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 […]
