I am Here and Hope to be up to Full Speed Very Soon!

 

Things have really been wild around here and there are several changes…..

Sad Things…..Mr. Tom Turkey got on the road and was hit by a car.

Big Nose Kate ( Hen ) disappeared and today, Gypsy has not been home in two days.

Good things……Bunny the little kitten Roy brought home from the rig had Kittens and two are alive and growing.  They are darling, they are still too tiny to be sure of their sex.

Miss Pearl is still here, but she wonders off everyday.

We went to Victoria for Matt’s Graduation from College, he graduated Cum Laude.  We are very proud of him.  He will be a great History teacher.  We stayed at the Peaceful Pelican in Palacios and it was wonderful.  The old house sits right on the bay and the view in the morning is awesome.

Roy is doing great with his weight loss, he has lost about 40 pounds in about nine weeks.

I had mine on the 27th of May and have already lost about 5 pounds.  I am sure mine weight loss will be slower.

We have not finished fencing, there is  a lot of clearing left to do to fence the last 2,000 feet, so it will take a while .

We have been working at the Lake House, getting it ready for the summer, hopefully Juan and I will finish up most of the work this weekend.

We have been praying for rain and today at 8:00 am, it started raining and it is still sprinkling at 7:00pm.  I think we had at least 4 inches of rain,  The pasture should be covered with grass in about a week.  Thank you, Lord.

I am working on my furniture on the Patio, still painting it.  I got new cushions and a few other things, hope to show it soon.  I have done a couple of new tablescapes and will post those also.003

I have painted some flower pots with chalkboard paint and different colors, I am going to give those as hostess gifts and I made some tags to give also. 

My computer was on the blink for about three weeks and right now I can’t send email and just yesterday my printer stopped working…….always something.  I will tend to those things in a day or two.

This week, I am just reading and sitting, I am very sore and can’t lift or do much housework or work outside.     Taking it easy for a week or so.

I want to thank everyone for the comments and all the emails, I can’t answer.  It is nice to have people out there thinking you.

Thanks so much….see you real soon. 

Boy do I have a lot of visiting to do….it will take time.

Love,

Barbara

Lots of news! So sorry to hear the sad parts--these poor animals can just be so briefly in our lives and then gone, it's heartbreaking.

But your good news is wonderful news!

Southern Lady said...

Oh, Barbara, it was so good to hear from you. I'm sorry about Mr Tom and Kate and Gypsy. I hope Gypsy will show up again soon.

Congratulations to Matt for a job well done, and to Roy, too, for losing 40 pounds. That's not easy to do ... and five pounds is five pounds, so keep on keeping on, Barbara. I admire you for trying.

It sounds as if you deserve to put your feet up and rest for a while. I'm so glad you're back.

HELLO PRETTY LADY,
I'M SO SORRY ABOUT TOM TURKEY,KATE AND GYPSY.
ROY GETS A STAR FROM RICHARD AND ME FOR SAVING THE TWO PRECIOUS KITTIES AND THEIR MOM...YOU KNOW WE FOSTER NEW BORN KITTENS...ANDY WAS JUST 6 DAYS OLD WHEN WE RECEIVED HIM. CONGRATS FOR YOU AND ROYS WEIGHT LOSS. MEN ALWAYS LOSE QUICKER. I HAVE DROPPED 30 POUNDS IN THE LAST 3 MONTHS AND AM ALMOST BALD FROM HAIR LOSS. IF I HAD NOT THICK HAIR WHEN ALL THIS STARTED I WOULD ALREADY BE BALD...THE DR. DID ALL KINDS OF TESTS AND MY HYPOTHYROIDISM HAD TURNED INTO HYPERTHYROIDISM AND THAT AND STRESS IS THE REASON FOR MY HAIR LOSS AND MANY OTHER THINGS.
YOU HAVE BEEN SO VERY BUSY....IS IT AS HOT YOUR WAY AS IT IS OUR WAY
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND BARBARA

OH BARBARA,
MOST OF ALL CONGRATS TO MATT AND BECOMING A HISTORY TEACHER. IT IS A BAD TIME FOR TEACHERS IN OKLAHOMA...ALL ONE YEAR TEACHERS WILL NOT BE CALLED BACK TO WORK. MY NEICE IS A YOUNG SINGLE MOTHER OF 2 CHILDREN AND IF IT WAS NOT FOR MY SIL, HER MOTHER, WHO HELPS TREMENDOUSLY, SHE WOULD BE IN A WORLD OF HURT.
CONGRATULATIONS TO MATT

Wow, you have been busy! Congrat to Matt! I have a Matt, also!
I have been busy taking care of my husband who broke his hip two weeks ago. We are ok, just is going to be a long recovery.

JEANNE said...

Hooray, I love your newsy post today. Congratulations to Matt on his 'honored' graduation from college.I love the photo of the three of you.
Poor Mr. Tom. I hate to hear that.
Men are so lucky to lose weight fast if they put their mind to it. We women have to trudge along and try not to be disappointed with our progress. I am trying very hard to drop ten lbs. put on this winter from too many snowed in days. No more Christmas cookies allowed.HA!

Don't worry about visiting. Put your feet up and rest. You deserve it. I am just so glad to hear your newsy post.
Hugs,Jeanne

I loved hearing about your trip to Palacios. My grandmother and papa were from Palacios and Old Gulf. I don't hear such about it any more. I had many a good times there as a child.

I'm still trying to catch up since my mom's passing and I just can't get there. I think if you miss more than one day around here, you might as well just jump in and hope that people will tell you if something important happened.

I'm sorry about your animal losses and thrilled for all the good news. Love the family pictures. I hope you feel much better soon.

Giveaway at my place!

Wow! you have had a lot going on, Barbara! Congrats to Matt and your hubby for his weight loss! Congrats to you too, dear lady! Wishing you a Happy Pink Saturday weekend.

Ohhh my dear Barb...
I came to check up on you, didn't see you on Pink Saturday and I came to tell you I have an award waiting for you over on my blog. It sounds as though the roof has almost caved in on you. Poor Mr. Tom..he was such a handsome gentleman turkey and I know his ladies loved him. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing and the disappearence of your animals.
Congratulations on that wonderful graduation and on the weight loss... have a beautiful weekend..and pick your award up when you have a chance..

SmilingSally said...

I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling a bit achy, Barbara. I hope that this is a better week.

Donna said...

Hi! I had to laugh..and feel sad for you at the same time, but that's life on the farm. I'm afraid losing animals is the story of our lives around our place. Thank goodness our cats seem to have nine lives and the horse is fine. But anything edible...you can forget it! I've often said that we seem to be in the business of providing forest fast food. However, turkeys, to me seem so vulnerable. They are so curious and like to travel. We ended up with several in our yard one day because they got out of the neighbor's yard. I'm truly sorry you lost Mr. Tom!

JEANNE said...

actavis phen375 hydrochloride phen375 before and after weight loss photos Arlington phen375 forum sugart*ts Does Phen375 Work? L-carnitine allows excess fat from the foodstuff we consume to be transferred into the blood stream and digested directly into energy. It redirects the glucose to catabolic metabolic process from production of anabolic body fat, to quicken the metabolism. Additional, L-carnitine is comparable to hCG or Human chorionic gonadotropin, in helping to transport the fatty acids in the direction of mitochondrial membrane for metabolizing.
