Boys and their toys

Don't you just love them? Brian has been (drooling) wanting a ceramic grill (like the Big Green Egg) for many years, but I just couldn't justify the price tag.  So last week when I found a different version (The Pit Boss) for a LOT less, I decided to get him one for his birthday.  It …

Turn on a dime

You have heard that old saying, turn on a dime? Well today was like that, but who is kidding who?  Most days are like that! Brian and Shana were both gone today, so it was just me, the puppy dogs, the not-so-feral cat, and the chickens.  Easy, huh?  Well not so much. Start out by …

Reset

Every day is a new day.  Good thing! Today was another day of chores, errands, a trip into town with the traffic and time obligations, more chores, then make dinner. Then there are the things that don't quite fit in.  That's ok.  Just let it roll off. Every day is a new day! Drop off …

No slow time

When you think of a peaceful country life, you think of taking things at your own pace.  At least I did! I thought of this peaceful life in the country, doing some cooking, some gardening, taking some walks.  Maybe go for a ride on our quads... Well maybe someday! I love my life, but the …

But it is funny how you keep getting led towards something from very different directions.  Kind of like someone is trying to tell me something. I followed …

YouTube Giveaway!

I started a YouTube channel on June 21, 2017 - 21 days ago!  I almost didn't do it, because, really!  Who wants to watch me? Well, Linda of Linda's Pantry (not the first, but the most convincing) told me that people are interested in what I do, and they would watch. Well, yesterday during a …

Connections

I love the way that God puts people in my path.  I have met so many people in my bookkeeping business, and also in my country community. Almost every time that I drive the 30 miles or so into town (Reno), I meet someone that I know.  It's really kind of amazing.  Reno isn't a …

Snow or scorch?

You just never know in Northern Nevada!  This week we went from 2 inches of snow on the ground and 33 degrees, to 94 degrees today with a threat of thunderstorms, and higher temperatures tomorrow! UPDATE: the neighbor across the road says it is now reading 101 degrees! That is a 68 degree difference in …
