I’m Confronting My Wolves

When I was younger, I fought really hard against an amputation. On April 23, I undergo AKA. I'm going to make a metamorphosis. It's spring! It's time for me to quit running from my metaphorical "wolves".

Ahem, Excuse Me, WHEN Will Spring Be Here?

They say this is one of the worst winters they've ever seen around here. Good, because if this is normal, I'm leaving ASAP! It seems like spring will never come.

Medical Catnip: I’m A Proponet

It's okay to admit you're addicted to catnip.

Some Things You Just Can’t DIY…

I just want to say, there are just some things you can't do yourself. This crew has worked hard all week on the barn, and it's almost done. We wouldn't have been able to erect this structure by ourselves in under 60 days!

Moving: Part II & Yoga With Cats

We are all moved! It's taken me a while to sit down and admit this as it's been "traumatic". I returned to Kansas with the last load on June 29, and we didn't finish unloading the truck until yesterday!

Trailering Horses Long Distance 101

The next morning she wouldn't load up. We tried everything including coercion, extortion, bribery, and asking nicely, for close to 8 hours. The horse would not go in.

Moving: Part I

Did I mention I don't want to go to Kansas?  My onions are growing nicely finally!  Also, my green onions, leeks, and beets.  I won't get to eat any muscadine grapes this year, and it looks like it's going to be a bumper crop!  I feel so interrupted.  

Hedgerows

Recently I've become fascinated by the British and their iconic hedgerows.

Finishing Projects

I admittedly have a track record of "finishing" projects 95% of the way before I move onto something else. As long as the product is functional, I always seem to get sidetracked from doing the finishing touches! I really want to curb that kind of behavior and really start finishing things 100%.
