Madi was a vampire with a knife threw her head. Carlie was an old woman skeleton with a bow and a cane, and Libby was a recovering car accident victim. They all picked out their own costumes. I had no input!!!

Fall on the Farm

Last night I made a fire in the firepit, covered up in a blanket and watched the sunset. Two kittens crawled up in my lap under the blanket and purred. And as it got dark the coyotes started howling.

This will be the view from my front porch once the house is built.

Hanging out laundry in the Fall Weather.

We had school conferences tonight. The PE Teacher asked me if Carlie has had a cough at home. I told him that she'd had one for about two weeks now and that she has asthma. He said that her cough suddenly gets a whole lot worse when they are doing something in PE that she doesn't want to do.

On the way home, Carlie told me "I really think you need to start giving me cough medicine again. Because if you don't then I'm going to get Ammonia."

So I gave her a big dose of nasty red cough medicine before bed last night so that she wouldn't get Ammonia.

Updates on the Farm

We have the new shed up. I actually got on the tractor and ran the brush hog. I was quite empowering. You just run over small trees and it chops them up into little pieces. I must admit I was imagining certain people as I mowed down tree after tree. I seriously love our little mini-farm. I stay out there as much as possible. The next couple of big projects are to tear down the old shed and start moving furniture from our house in town out into the new shed. Furniture that we know won't fit into the trailer.

Tractors are the bomb!!!!

Buddy and Rex. They are half Bird Dog and half Basset Hound. Carlie calls them our Bert Dogs.

Trying To Stay One Step Ahead

When I stop posting, usually there are hard things going on in my life. I hope to get to post about those soon as they get resolved. But in the mean time, I still have a hard time staying one step ahead of Carlie Mae.

I was in the grocery store with her the other day. Her mouth was going 90 miles an hour. I was just the two of us. Finally she says "You know 15 + 16 = 31" Absent mindedly I reply "Yep, that's right" So she goes "We'll you know what that means don't you" "Ummm....no, no really" She exuberantly shouts "Today is Oct 16 and Halloween is Oct 31st. And that means you have EXACTLY 15 days to buy my halloween costume!!!" "Ohhh.....I see."
