Caught on Camera

Cameras... what an amazing invention!
Thank the Good Lord Above....we don't always have them with us!

A few shots I managed to capture:

and....thankfully.... a few I missed ;)

McKell, Ellie, Woodrow, and I go for a walk yesterday. Wanting to maximize on calorie burning....we decide the blown in lane is our best route. Throw Ellie in the sled & start wading down through. Literally, it is above my knees, the Corgi is swimming & close to drowning when he hits one of my tracks. Ellie is getting bucked out of the sled. By the time we make it out of the very short lil lane....I'm real glad we hadn't set out across the field! This is only the beginning of the trek. Home is still 2 corners away.

PICTURE Not Captured~ Layered in the most stylish...feed clothes: muck boots, elmer fud hat, wild rag....Pulling a bright orange sled.....and the only thing that is keeping our forward motion at a decent pace is a .....Corgi with 2 inch legs....tugging at his leash ;)

Here are a few I managed to capture:

Penelope riding J2's pony... 2nd day he'd worked with the pony ;)
Sweet little pony...& Penelope is fearless

If not, you'll either pop your gizzard or eat dirt."

Feeding Before It Thaws

Feeding Before It Thaws ~
The great thing about feeding alone....there is no one complaining about you stopping to take a picture ;) .....or a breathe for that matter!

Here are a few pictures I took while feeding yesterday morning.
Paired them with some quotes I liked.

I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.
~Louisa May Alcott

Always act like you're wearing an invisible crown.
~Author Unknown
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sex appeal is fifty percent what you've got and fifty percent what people think you've got. ~Sophia Loren

God wisely designed the human body so that we can neither
pat our own backs nor kick ourselves too easily.
~Author Unknown

Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.
~Eleanor Roosevelt

Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside of them was superior to circumstance.
~Bruce Barton

If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.
~Thomas Alva Edison

I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.

Savoring Sunday

There is a privacy about it
which no other season gives you....
In spring, summer and fall
people sort of have an open season on each other;
only in the winter, in the country,
can you have longer, quiet stretches
when you can savor belonging to yourself.
~Ruth Stout

TRAIL TREASURES 3 ~ Wipey Wallets


This is a trail treasure that I use more than I'd like to admit. It crossed my mind that I might have some messy friends too :) Wipey Wallets are awesome!

You are thinking, ya, that's cool if you are a Mom & have a diaper bag. Well, Yes, it is super for Moms. What a stylin way to rock packin wet wipes.

I don't have kids of my own.
However, I do....
  • enjoy ice-cream, barbeque sauce, and most messy food
  • have little brothers & sisters
  • eat in the car
  • work with livestock
  • and am just an all around beautiful disaster MOST of the time!
Some of you can't those of us who don't live in a bubble, I'm talking to you :)

Some places I love my Wipey Wallet!
  • On the Rodeo Trail~ Rodeo all night and make your way to the Concession Stand for a Rodeo Burger. Seems like knocking some of the rodeo dirt off your hands can improve a meal considerably. (Packs perfectly into my jockey box or in my Timing Bag)
  • Lil' Red Roan trade shows~ Trips to Public Restrooms, handling money, shaking hands with a Flu Candidate, and just cleaning up your hands to handle beautiful products without leaving fingerprints. (Fits right in my Show Bag)
  • Feeding Elk ~ when the creek is your running water & the rest room is an outhouse. You don't have to be feeding. Any camping expedition would apply;)! (Always on the back pack check list)
  • Wild Nights Out ~ Every once in awhile I get a wild hair and think I should enter the World's Coolest Sister Contest. For those times when you think ICE CREAM for a car full of kiddos is a fabulous idea! :) (Packs perfectly into a purse)
Life's a beautiful disaster.
Don't sweat the small stuff, wipe up the spills, and have a fabulous time!

Here is a pic of my fabulous Wipey Wallet

I choose a Raring & Ready to Go Cowgirl Print!

You can choose your pattern.
Lots of options from Sassy, Classy, Spunky and even some that are Punchy!
Over 200 fabrics to choose from.
