Busy with the Blahs......

I wish that I could tell you that I have been too busy to blog but the honest truth is that I have been too LAZY to blog.

Still no rain but the temperatures are so much cooler that I hesitate to complain. I went out to check cows this morning and was actually COLD! The temp was a brisk 52 degrees. The out look is so grim for pasture, hay, and fall crops that I just can't open that Pandora's box. If I dare to think about it, I become overwhelmingly depressed.

The growth on my ear that I had removed early last week was benign...... Thank you Lord! Now I am headed to the hospital early in the morning for an ultra sound of my gallbladder. I have been having interesting pain and digestive disorders...... Frankly, I don't care what they find--- I am not in enough pain to have surgery.

The two milk goats that stayed with us most of the summer are back. My friend is just not well enough to take care of them and I am very afraid for her future......

We are expecting six calves to be born before the end of September. Better late than never, I guess!

My daughter came home from her summer in Yellowstone for a few days before heading back to college.

We will begin our school schedule after Labor Day.

I think that I am going to be taking a little blogging break until my mood improves or we have a significant amount of rainfall. Maybe by the time September arrives, I will have lots to catch you up on!


  1. Glad you liked Carole's Chatter. Thank you so much for following. Cheers

  2. Oy, those blahs sure can catch a-hold of you, can't they? Here's to hoping they let you go soon!

  3. We'll be here! Just keep on keep'n on :)

  4. I hope your gall bladder is ok. You might want to look up a detox for your gall bladder. I use lemon juice and olive oil to detox mine when I start having problems with indigestion. It always helps.

    Hope you get rain soon!
