Headin’ for a Weddin’

I won’t bore you with the “I’ve been so busy.” “Life has been so complicated.” Excuses, excuses.. In the weeks to come, I will make an honest effort at blogging more, and reading my buddies’ blogs as well.

I’ve really missed posting and reading. So here goes our biggest news….

This wonderful couple, our son the Fiddler and his beautiful Sweetheart will be married next month. We are excited… SO very excited and happy about all of this. The bonus is, they will soon be our new neighbors here on the Farm. Lots of work to do in the meantime, but it will all be worth it!! Love these two!!

Amongst other happenings and events this year, The Blacksmith and I have been working on fixing up the Cottage,(aka Shouse). We plan to move in this Fall. We had never gotten around to putting in a kitchen, bedroom, or finishing trim and a few other (okay, LOTS of) details. But, at long last, we WILL be moving there before the coldest winter winds hit (we hope!). My plan is to share pictures of the kitchen and other projects as they are complete. You can read all the previous “Barn Cottage” posts here.

And, of course.. there will be wedding pictures coming in the near future!

Hope all is well with each of you!

Till next time….

Total Lunar Eclipse



It was hard to capture a good photograph, but awesome to watch live in person! Were you able to catch it live yesterday?

Another reminder that our God is an Awesome God!

Happy Birthday to this fella

This Fiddler (shown here at about age 4) is celebrating a b-day today. He really hasn’t changed that much over the past several years – he still loves dogs. Instead of a terrier, he has a beloved pug.

Happy Birthday with much ♥

Fiddle Dee Dee–it’s been too long!

Why oh why do I wait so long between posts?!

Let’s get right to it then….
Back before Christmas, a sweet Blogger friend sent the best gift! An awesome sign!

A long overdue shout-out (and thanks again) to dear Jenny Matlock – methinks she knows us purty well!! We love it!
{Psssst… I happen to know that Jenny has a fabulous Etsy shop as well!}

From there, where do I begin? Oh yes.. the weather, always the weather. Like much of the U.S., here in Missouri we’ve had a dreadfully cold winter. In this old farmhouse, it’s kinda been a matter of survival. And, of course, keeping the critters in good shape. It has at times seemed like Winter would go on forever. So bleak, so miserable. Has anyone else had the winter blahs and blues?

We’ve had a fair amount of the white stuff. It was pretty. At first.


Full golden moon from earlier this week.

On the brighter side, we’re enjoying a nice little break from the cold. 50’s! Today the Mr. and I enjoyed a trip to the woods with Goldie. We left our other two chubby and senior sweet pups behind so they didn’t have to struggle through the remnants of snow and ice (not to worry – the old girls took short walks later).

Today we enjoyed some nice previews to Spring. A bit of thawing at the creek…

pre-Spring thaw at Flat Creek

Goldie enjoyed herself immensely.

Every one needs a break now and then though.

Lo and behold, several Robins were hanging out in the woods.

Know what? I do believe this Spring thang could happen after all. There is hope, always.

Oh – one more thing - I can’t leave without mentioning my favorite evening pastime over the past few weeks. No t.v. for me – just owl watching! There are now three beautiful and adorable little owlets on Alessondra’s OKC Owl Cam. Check them out here!

Have a great remainder of the week, Friends!
