I See the Moon...

When my children were small they had a prayer that we said at our dinner table...

I see the moon
And the moon sees me.
God bless the moon
And God bless me.

Caramel Corn (Redneck Style)

I haven't put on any new recipes in a while and I thought I would share one that my family loves.  It is easy because it is made in the microwave and a paper bag.  I have only posted a picture here, but go to my "cooking" tab and scroll me it's there, it's just at the bottom.  Add some kind of nut to it and it will be family (daughter) didn't want me to add any and we all know how spoiled our kids are...

The Sparks Flew When....

 Here is Brother-in-Law Rick again.
 Doing what he does best. 
 He probably wouldn't agree with me on that, 
if you were to ask him he would probably list a lot of things he does well.
We love to harass each other's what we do best.
He told me that he has had a spark fall in his ear before and then spit it out his mouth....
talk about hurting, but it does explain a lot about Rick.....crazy.
This is the newest addition to the loft.  Any guesses what they are making?
This iron is heavy.  Have no doubt they are straining here.
They can't hold it up without the chain and a winch in the middle.
Not witch....they didn't want my help.
 They thought they might be able to lift it up until they tried.
Where is the Incredible Hulk when you need him?
It was about at this point I was afraid they were going to ask me (witch) for help.
They would have laughed at that last comment....
Not a chance would they ever need me to help....not that desperate.
They are building stairs for the loft.....well part of them, 
do we really need steps?

A Bridge over Troubled Water...

I was on my way to town and this beauty ran in front of me,
I hit my brakes and pulled over.  The car behind me had no idea why I was pulling over, 
I was just hoping I could find him after he ran back in the brush.

Not the best photo here, but when I looked over the bridge I saw him walking.
I was thrilled and probably a little shaky.  
He was as scared as me, trying to find Momma I'm sure.

Then he saw me looking down at was love at first sight.
Well for me it was.

He came out of the water and I lost him again for a minute.....
I waited and when I looked up....

I got my last glimpse of him.
Such a cutie.....I just love when this happens, it truly makes my day.

Thanks God for letting me see the beauty you have made.

Skinny Dippin' or Chunky Dunkin'

"They act like they have never seen a cow skinny dipping' before."
"Look at them now they are taking pictures of us"
"Well I don't know about you, but I'm looking' good, 
I've been working' out"
"Well you might look good, 
but I don't skinny dip......
I Chunky Dunk"

I bet my fellow bloggers didn't know I knew how to speak cow.

Am I Blue?

I think all of the Caribbean is beautiful, but this particular day (we were in St. Maarten)
 the water was amazing.
 We took a "taxi" from the ship across the bay.  
The water was clear, smooth and so many shades of blue.  I truly love it here.
Before my first trip to the Caribbean, I had someone describe how beautiful it was, 
but it is something that must be seen to be fully appreciated.  

I should be a spokesperson for their tourism, I would go on and on.

Canadian Family...

 All families are really all the doesn't really matter if they are birds or people.
When they got ready to leave Mom and the kids had a different plan than Dad did.
 Mom and the kids went left, I'm guessing there was more shopping and playing to do.
 Do you see 2 of the babies turning their heads, that is because Dad went right and is
 HONKING over and over, 
apparently he has had enough shopping for one day and is ready to go home.
 "OK kids, turn around and lets go with Dad , he's ready to go home"
 "Hurry, he says he will leave us"
 "We're coming, we're coming!!"
 "What is the big hurry?"
 "I'm ready to go home, I had a hard day at work" 
"I'm hungry Mom, what's for dinner?"
"I know some kids that are going to eat and go straight to bed" 
"But Mom.....We're not tired"
"Are we there yet?"

You see all families really are the same.

Loft Making Part II

After they got the 3 beams set Randy put the rails up that are going in the opposite direction.
 He had to weld each one in three places and put them 16" apart. 
 I only know this because I got to hold the tape measure, about all I'm good for.
 Then the "real" help showed up....our son Kyler.
Randy was on top of the flat bed and handed up the flooring material.
"Over more", "Back to me", "Too Much", "What do ya think?" "OK, screw it in"
It's  an exact science.
Kyler had got the privilege of screwing each one down......
Under supervision,  do you see that little finger giving instructions.
Did I mention that Kyler HATES being up any higher than he can jump, 
he did get something from me.....fear of heights.
"What's taking you so long?"  "I've got them all handed up to you...speed it up, get the lead out"
Did I also mention they love to harass each other.  It makes working together so much more fun.

Randy loves when Kyler is around, it truly makes doing anything better for him.....
not that he would EVER admit this to Kyler.
Happy Fathers Day!!

Stampede of Sorts...

 My husband is wanting to sell A cow...only one....
unfortunately that one cow will not just come and get in the trailer.
Our cows mind about as well as our kids did when they were little.
 Instead he has to call ALL the cows in.
They come running because they think it is eaten' time.
 After he gets them all in the corral, he then has to let all (except for the one he is wanting) out.  
It can sometimes be a bit tricky, as they ALL want to leave
When he is ready to load the one, then he calls for the trailer.  The cows get more "uptight" when they see anything out of the ordinary going on and so they don't want the 
trailer to show up until they are ready to load.
She loaded up fast and they were surprised, she's a WILD one and that is part of the reason they wanted to sell her.  She has chased the guys on more than one occasion....kind of has a bad attitude, 
you don't want to do that around here or they will sell you.....just so ya know.
