A Weekend at Home

This past weekend we got to stay home and do... nothing.

That's right, we laid around the house all day and watched TV and played video games. It was terrible. No I mean like terrible that we did it, it was actually very enjoyable.

Well, I didn't lay around the house all day.. We tried to go garage saleing, but when Alpine only has five garage sales it's hard to find any good deals. I did find a cute little table and chairs for K when he gets old enough to do crafts and stuff! It was only 5 bucks! I'm going to clean it up and I'll take a few pictures.

Other than that, we didn't find anything else. We did go to a place that was basically a dump and a lady was selling the junk that people had to dig out of piles of trash. I guess it was her house but it was in pretty bad shape. Like, really bad shape. Anyways, my mom had a pile of stuff! An old wooden chair, and can of oil that was from like the 50's that hadn't been opened yet! and some silver pales and other little knick knacks. Well, the lady wouldn't sell her the pales, said she needed them for her rocks...? Whatever lady. Talk about crazy!!

After our sad attempt of garage saleing, my folks wanted to keep K, so we left him and went home and started our day of nothing. It was so grand that I decided to should fold a basket of cloths and before I knew it was using a pile of t-shirts as a pillow and taking a nap on the floor. Haha!!

Ok, I'll quite bragging about our wonderful day of nothing!

I have been stuck on my other blog. I have about eight drafts started but I can't figure out how to end them. On this blog I can just speak my mind and not have to worry about who I may offend or say something wrong. I have been putting a lot of thought into because if I want to make it a book I feel like it should be correct in every aspect.

That has always been my problem though. I can't finish stories. I have all these wonderful ideas of what to write about but when it comes time to end it, I get stuck. Oh well, I'll figure something out. Maybe on my next day of nothing that's what I'll do, if I ever get another day like that.

I'm sorry I don't have any pictures to share, I umm... yeah... can't find my camera... I have an idea of where it's at though. K has been taking and hiding things. He has a little stash of stuff in the kitchen. I guess I need to go look there..

I guess that's all I have for now. T and I are watching Pocahontas, without our little monster..

Talk to ya'll later!!

Round' The Homestead

Would you believe me if I told you we owned a rabbit?

It's true.... some neighbors of my folks raise rabbits and they wanted to give K man one, so we are the proud owners of Bucky!

I have been busy, busy, busy today! Did I mention busy? I mowed the lawn today, all of it! and did some landscaping as you can see in the above picture. 

I really needed cleaning up and I guess I got a wild hair and decided to do it! Glad it's done too...

My sad little garden... I spent an entire afternoon weeding it and plucking all the dead plants out of it. I think most of it survived, but time will tell...

My chicken coop!! It is finally finished! I think T was more happy to see it finished than I was. I think it took about a month to complete... whew!

My chickens were sure happy to have more room to roam too.
My goats!

Some more landscaping :)
Well, not much else has been going on around here. Friday we leave for Abilene for the Western Heritage Classic. Saturday is the horse sale and T will be sporting his new official 06 ranch shirt! Haha, he's really riding for the brand now.
I guess I will talk to ya'll after this weekend! Adios!
