Days at Home

Have you recovered from Turkey Day?  We celebrated a bountiful Thanksgiving with J’s extended family.

Helping J sure makes the day and days go fast!  He has a pesky task list in progress, when we don’t have problems to deal with.  Sometimes, problem solving crosses a pesky task off the list.  When he doesn’t need my help I continue to peck away at skirt work and my nagging task list.

The bathroom project is close to done.  J needs to do some trim work and last night took the first shower upstairs!  Check back tomorrow for pictures.

Teresa from Eden Hills came up with this week’s Scavenger Hunt prompts.  Teresa is a Goat enthusiast from Iowa.  She is also a talented photographer.

Home and/or Thankful:  I am thankful for the Rancher and our involvement in the Beef Business.  We work together at home.  The adjustment is going good.  The days are busy and by evening I ame ready for a hot shower and soft chair.

Trees:  Looking across the prairie we don’t have a lot of trees.  We appreciate the trees we have as they are hard to grow in our area.

This is the last week for Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday linky party for 2012.   This week is an Free and Easy tenxure them.  I edited this picture and used a KK_ Paperlove as my texture.  This abandoned homestead as a free spirit about it, but I am guessing life wasn’t that easy.

with the watercolor option at BeFunky and used a double layer of Kristen as my texture.

Dawn on a fall morning is the beginning of another day; a day to be thankful for.

Couple:  Here are a couple dogs always in want of attention!

In the Kitchen:  In the last few weeks, I  have not spent much time in the kitchen the.  I am lucky that Mom taught us to bake and freeze.  It makes me feel good to grab homemade food from the freezer when I am short on time.  I told the Rancher I need a day in the kitchen as our stash is running low.

I took the long way home when I returned from taking out mineral last week.  This is an abandoned farmstead to the south of us.  Look for more pictures on Wednesday.  The kitchen was the far right window.

Bubbles:  I saw a few bubbles, but didn’t get them photographed.  I saw bubbles as J and I chopped ice on water tanks.  Yes, several iced over tanks to chop and pitch ice out of for several days in a row.  I also saw bubbles when J and I but up windbreak yesterday.  Level bubbles that is.

At home J and I work as a couple.  J has been good about teaching and explaining things to me along the way.  No two days are alike around the ranch.  One day we are cleaning up tree branches after a storm or picking up branches.  Another day we are fixing windbreak the calves leveled.  In between outside work, I try to get in the kitchen and prepare a hot meal!  At the end of the day I am thankful that I can say I did something productive and worth while.

    I used to keep quick stuff like pot pies in the freezer for those days it was tough to carve out an hour for the midday meal. Fell back on a lot of burger makings as could always leave a package on the counter to thaw, and chips or cauliflower were quick to grab and dip.

    I agree, the sunrise shot is beautiful!
    I’m glad ya’ll are getting used to you being a full-time ranch wife. I’m sure you’ll have to work out a schedule so that you have enough time for your “skirt” work and keeping up with your cooking. What a challenge but I know you’ll figure it out! 🙂

  5. Your life certainly is a different kind of busy… but I know how good a hot shower is at the end of a hard day… I’d love to explore that abandoned place… Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #58!

    Every day is a gift and it sounds like you get that, Robyn. xo

    Oh Miss Robyn this could be a page out of my memory book. Working along side My Hero with the cattle, always so much to do and barely anytime in the kitchen. I loved most of it and yes a soft chair and a shower was a fitting end, well when we finally had a shower:)
    I love texture photos I am amazed at the beautiful art that emerges with some fiddling. I love the abandoned homesteads they have so many tales to tell.
    Theresa is indeed a wonderful photographer and farmer.
    Take care Miss Robyn do not work to hard and I hope to get into the baking real soon for now I think I will just sit here and watch the cows from the window as the sun comes up.
    It is a great life isn’t it? Hugs B
