Yesterday I was able to go to the ranch and have some time to myself. The wind was blowing as usual but it wasn't too bad so I thought I would work in the yard. A couple of weeks ago T brought a couple of old flower boxes made out of barn wood to the house. They are now sitting in the pouch with various vegetables planted in them.

The one box is falling apart so T had to nail a brace on it. I think they look quite neat and I was proud of myself for planting them! Actually, I didn't plant them, I didn't get to! I had made up the dirt and was fixing to plant when T came home took the job over! I think he is a farmer at heart!

We also worked in the back yard where a garden used to be.

Don't laugh at the chicken, it was there before we got there. My mother has claimed it though so it shall soon be in her backyard. After we tilled it up, T made an extra effort to plant His row of corn.

I think it might be a good idea to put a border of some sort around our little garden to separate it from the yard. I was kinda of thinking something like this..

That's a little flower bed that's in the making. I like the rock border and it might look good in the back.

I also took some pictures of the inside of the house, just for ya'll's viewing.

The lovely couch that T bought us at the auction a couple of weeks ago. It doesn't look very pretty but it quite comfortable.

The dining table that he bought.

Ya'll have a great weekend!

July 22

If things were going the way they are supposed to, then I would be in the middle of planning a wedding.

Things are not going the way I wish they would but that's ok. I feel like T and I owe people an explanation as to why there will be no wedding on July 22 of this year.

I love my parents very much. So many emotions have been running around our house and just recently they have left because I "gave in," so to speak. I'm not a rebellious child, or at least I don't think I am. My parents are not comfortable in planning a wedding this soon in T and I's engagement. They simply won't have it because they are fixing to move and my dad is trying to keep his business running good. They would rather do it next year, a wedding that is. So then is right of me to say that that's not really fair? They also think that T and I are being selfish in not "considering," others and their plans when all we have done is picked a date. We are going to respect their wishes. I will say again that I love my parents to death but they have encouraged an almost rebellious decision to be made. As of right now, T and I are getting married on July, 22 of this year. We had permission from our parents to get married by a JP whenever we wanted so that's what we are going to do. I have decided that I don't want a wedding anymore and it is not a selfish decision and it's really what I want to do. Part of my parents compromise was if we decided to get married by a JP that they would do a wedding for us anyways for an anniverseary or do the wedding when they wanted to, but in truth I don't know if I want to do that. T and I will already be married, but if they really want to do that then they are going to have to plan it. That's fine with me.

I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings by not having a wedding but there can still be one, just not anytime soon.

So, on a brighter note, T and are I getting married!!! July 22 if you didn't already know! We are going to go to San Antonio for a week and have a great time!!
