I've got the Feva'!!!

Spring Fever, that is.

I get it every March and it makes me Mrs. Grouchy-pants.

Do you know why I haven't been blogging much? Because there are only things going on in my world...

1. Feed the cows.

 "Hey, is that my breakfast you've got back there?"

2. Clean the house for a million showings.
I die every. single. time. the Realtor calls. I'm going to change his ring-tone to Darth Vader music. Seriously.

3. Watch it snow for the billionth time.

It will. not. quit.

I took these pictures today on the way back over the mountain from feeding the cows.

There is a 4 strand barbed wire fence buried under that snow.

Snow flocked trees are lovely and beautiful in December.  They are wretched and annoying in March.

They are especially annoying a week before spring break when all of the stores have their shorts, flip-flops, and swimsuits out and I am still wearing my Carhartts, snow boots, and wool hat.


Repeat steps 1,2,3 over and over again.

That is my life right now.  We were displaced from our home for 4 hours today for realtor showings, so my family spent the afternoon looking at our cow's rear-end regions and udder sacks, and placed bets as to which cow was going to calve first. That's how we roll in this family.

Just keepin' it real,



  1. Ugh. I'm ready for warm weather to stay. It got cold again last night, but is supposed to warm back up this week.
    Yeah, I like how y'all roll, we like saying which mama cow we think is gonna calves first, too. Ranch life fun, huh?! ;)
    Stay warm!!

  2. I agree I am so ready for spring. I want to break out the flip flops and we need some good ol' sun on us :)
    I hope you got good news on your house :)

  3. Ah...the snow...we don't get any..usually. Are you moving far? or just to a new house in your neck of the woods. I LOVE seeing all your beautiful country...yep, even the snow.
