Impromptu: not prepared ahead of time; made or done without preparation. I had intentions to visit my Sister earlier this month. Due to iffy weather and a couple of things I thought I better stay home for, I didn’t go. I have been thinking about a February trip to see my folks. Due to the nice weather and a few things coming up in February, I made a fly by the seat of my pants decision to head south.
Molly and I left Tuesday morning after helping J start chores.
I am looking forward to… spending time with Mom and Dad. I am also going to visit with Aunts and Uncles too! I am learning… Where some of my funny little personality quirks come from. I pick up on a few every time I visit home.
Around the house… Lots of good conversations are going on. Riley is sitting on my lap and Molly is eating popcorn with Mom. I talked Mom into helping me edit my magazine articles too. I am pondering… I grew up on a ranch in Nebraska. Today I am ranching with my Husband in South Dakota. J and I are in the same business as my folks and our management is different. Dad and I spend a lot of time visiting about cattle, genetics, the environment and sharing how and why we do things the way we do.
A favorite quote for today… comes from Kelly at Old Blue Silo. Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself! I think part of creating ourselves is knowing where we came from and understanding what makes us who we are. It’s nice to have the opportunity to visit home before calving! Yesterday afternoon, I went to visit my Grandma. I am a very blessed to have a Husband who is willing to share me for a few days.
