I was feeling scrappy last weekend. Literally and figuratively. There are two meanings to scrappy and I qualified for both. “Made up of scraps or of odds and ends; fragmented: disconnected.” “Fond of fighting, arguing, or competing.”   These are the days I’m not fit for human companionship. I put myself in time-out and […]

  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 […]

“Excuse my messy house.”  — Said no straight man ever. The main entrance to my house is the garage. We have a front door, but everyone comes in through the garage and mud room. The dump rooms.  Dog hair and mud and sometimes a baby calf hanging out. Another New Year’s intention of mine.  I […]

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 […]

Hello 2017!   I woke up happy this morning. That’s a good sign.     First day of the New Year….. Me ….. Happy!  YAY!   Then I’ve had this old song stuck in my head all day…. “I believe in miracles Where you from You sexy thing, you sexy thing you I believe in miracles […]

 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
