I Guess It’s Sandwiches for Supper.

Fishing. We do a lot of it, as you probably know.

The other day was probably our worst day of fishing, ever.

Certainly not because we didn’t catch anything. As a matter of fact, The Hubbster managed to pull one in on nearly every cast, as soon as the line hit the water.

What was the problem, then?


One of the many.


Yeah… are you seeing a trend? Somehow, he found the bluegill nursery, and couldn’t get out.

Oh, and a leaf, for good measure.

The buzzards were even circling, clearly hoping that we were relying on our catch to avoid starvation.

Not today, buzzards. Not today. We have sandwich fixins in the house.

Avery found something disgusting to roll in, true to dog protocol, so she had a great day.

Like Avery, The Wee Little Miss wasn’t interested in fishing this time. She has some kind of project in mind that requires looking for enormous branches that have fallen from the trees.

Now, I’m all for her projects, as they always turn out impressively. I do hope it comes together quickly, however; our garage, where these branches are being stored, is filling up very quickly! Not only that, the garage is actually our music room, and there are so many trees in there right now, I don’t think there would be space for a toddler to play a harmonica.

Let’s see, what else. Oh, yes. I put up the Thanksgiving decor, which is nice, but will never compare to my enjoyment of Halloween.

Two weeks until the US celebrates Thanksgiving. Are you ready? Any fantastic plans or interesting dishes you intend to try? Me, I’m more of a holiday food purist. Roasted turkey and the regular sides. I am going to try a keto pecan pie this time, though, as sugar seems to make us all feel unwell. Fingers crossed — no worries, I’ll have some home-made ice cream on hand, just in case it’s a disaster!


Long Time No See

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted — or, indeed, even been online.  I’ve had a few people ask how things are, so I figured I’d give an update here.

The Wee Little Miss received a Very Nice Camera as a gift, and has become nearly completely immersed in photography.  If you’re interested, you can follow her here.  Here is one of her recent shots:


The Little Goat, Noel, is not quite so little any more.  Hard to believe he is nearly two months old, now!  Patch is a great momma, and we are all proud of her.  Take a look at how he’s grown!


The llamas, Tina and Fran, are becoming more friendly by the day.


The kitten that we rescued from the pasture in the middle of the night back in mid-September has really become quite the little princess of the household.  She has become best friends with our younger dog, Mittens, and very much appreciates the safety and warmth of the house.

Our other dog, Okie, is appreciating the opportunity to become the standard “lazy hound”, now that the cat is around to keep Mittens busy.


We have leased out half of our pasture to a local rancher, which has been great.  He takes good care of his animals and the pasture, while we are still in the prep stages of getting the farm going.  Everybody wins.


The Hubbster has recovered nicely from his heart attacks, I am studying like a crazy person, as is the Wee Little Miss.  In a nutshell, life is continuing on, just as it does.

How are you all?
