I want to Remember this about my Fischer Lee at the age of 4!
I love this picture of my husband with his cow dogs. I miss him so much right now! He is away at class learning how to make our ranch more profitable. He went to it last year. I am so proud of him, and know he will bring lots of new information back to improve our ranch.
words can't describe how much I love this picture of my Hazy J...
The ashes and "stuff" from the wood I have been hauling in lately for the fire. I swept it into a pile, and then noticed that it was just a lovely arrangment. Hope you enjoy! from The Rancher's Wife's Photography...
Today I primed (okay a little paranoid after the spell check incident...I'm not sure if this is right?) the bedroom downstairs while the boys slept. I had to find something to wear that I didn't mind smearing paint all over. I dug these out of our closet. Unfortunately, they were not made for someone who is 30 weeks pregnant. I was glad no one was around to watch as I tried to roll paint on the ceiling while trying to keep my briches up.
PS: Those black hair clips are the only ones left in my house that have not had a least one of the little prongs broken off. The boys love to play with my hair clips. I go through them like grant took richmond. Fischer is always asking me if he can use my "hair clips to play crane!"
If you look closely I spelled Clos(e)ly wrong. I could not take it back once I had sent it. Photoshop does not spell check, and now I've started to try to be more careful and put everything on a word document before I add it to photoshop.
My mom called me the morning after and asked if I had spelled it wrong. At first I played with a few options... well actually I was just trying to be clever and spelled it wrong purposely because I wanted everyone to look closer (HA! come on Kate like your mother is going to believe that anyway), but then I had to admit it to her and myself.
Ummmm no I just spelled it wrong!
So I am starting to really appreciate Spell Check. It seems the longer I am out of college the more I need it.
Next time I will not be so impulsive & I will take the time to spell check my LO. Also I will not let my 2 year old sit on my lap while I am trying to submit something. He has this habit of reaching for everything I have on my desk whether it be paper, pens or our phone wall hanger (I'm not sure what to call it) that I don't know what to do with because we don't plan to hang our phone on the wall.
Hidden under all of the drywall dust I found inspiration. When we first poured the cement for our basement the leaves from nearby trees blew in and left leaf impressions on our cement floor. We are now finishing our last room in the basement and will soon cover all of the leaf imprints with carpet.
I found inspiration in this messy room. It just goes to show you that inspiration can be found anywhere...we just have to pay attention.
PS If you need a sturdy bag to put trash in/drywall scraps dog food bags work great. They do not fall apart like most trash bags.
I didn't end up winning last night. Angie wrote that over 3000 people voted. Carrie Hartman won. Her picture was the top one. I loved the texture of the brick wall behind her, and if you look closely it is a polaroid.
Amy over at Our Tiny Dot on the Planet has written a lovely post. My thoughts have been with all in Haiti lately. When I think of little babies not having formula it just makes my heart ache. Read Amy's post because it is a good one!
