My very first !!!!!!!
Hello, My name is Barbara and this is my first day!
This was my very first post in November of 2008 and it was a real step for me. I have now posted 366 and have over 200 fantastic followers. Life is good and blogging friends are the best.
We finished one fence project yesterday 2000 feet of new fence and today we will begin another shorter one.
Yesterday we had 3 workers and Roy, this afternoon, we will have one worker and Roy.
Why one the weekends? This is when our young man can help out, he has another job during the week. We can’t afford to hire him full time…….wish we could.
Have a Blessed and Happy Sunday and pray for the people in Mississippi that suffered and died from the tornados that struck their area.
We have just had our last storm for now. My dogs are scared of thunder, I could hear them crying, so I got up and thought I would try to catch up on visiting, but it has been very slow, because of tremendous rain, hail and lightning.
I know it has moved east and I hope everyone is safe as it passes over your area.
We are still very busy here at the Bar H……We are continuing our fencing today and tomorrow. Sooner or later, we will have it done so that the goats can’t go visiting around our neighbor or come in the yard and eat my rose bushes.
You know the old saying….Grass is greener on the other side, Well they sure think it is.
Hope to be back in the blogging world soon,,,,,,please don’t stop visiting and leaving comments or sending me an emails.

Before I show my copied craft, I want to give an update on Miss Pearl…….some of you may recall I was worried that she had broken her leg. She has been laying under the Wisteria bush for about 4 days and I have been taking her food and water. Today in all the rain, I saw her walking around with Mr.Tom and the other hens……she has a slight limp. I am so happy, she is my favorite.
I am always looking for ideas for the lake house and I saw some napkin rings with shells made by Beth and I made some of my own.
Please visit the above blogs and see tons of creative projects.
AS SOME OF YOU MAY HAVE REALIZED, I AM
TAKING A BREAK, NOT A PLANNED ONE. THIS
BREAK IS NEEDED BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH
HAPPENING ON THE BAR H.
THE THREE HENS ARE STILL HERE, BUT MISS
PEARL, my favorite, SEEMS TO HAVE BROKEN
HER “ankle” AND I AM NOT SURE WHAT IS GOING
TO HAPPEN WITH HER.
Today they are coming to replant out pasture. This winter we are the victims of Army Worms and they destroyed nearly all the grass in the pasture.
This means we have no grass for our goats and we are forced to turn them loose in parts of the property that are not properly fenced.
It also means we have a crew due today and tomorrow to disk the entire pasture and replant.
Tomorrow, I have crew another crew coming to fence a part of the back pasture to prevent the goats from getting into our neighbors property and prevent the predators from hopefully getting in.
The part that makes it hard on me……….Roy is at work and I am in charge of being sure everything is done correctly……..
YEP…you guessed it…….WHAT DOES A CITY GIRL
KNOW ABOUT PUTTING UP FENCE…..NOT MUCH,
BUT I HAVE 2 PAGES OF INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW
ROY WANTS IT DONE.
My neighbor, not next door, my next door neighbor is about 6+ acres away on one side, informed me yesterday that he had trapped three Bobcats and killed about 15+ coyotes in his back pasture, which joins ours where I am having to put up new fence. I will start carrying my gun back there with me, but I doubt the cowards would come out while I am back there.
Thank goodness I have Pilgrim and Mary to guard my goats.
Well, I also have been trying to work in my yard, keep the house clean and do some crafting. I am making gift tags to give as a thank you for the hostess when I play bridge or bunko.
Well, if you have stuck around long enough to read this entire PITY PARTY I am having….I will stop and let you move on.
Hopefully by Wednesday, when Roy comes home, things will have settled down and I can get back to visiting and maybe post a word or two.
On days like this, it is nice to have blogging friends to leave messages.
Today I checked my blog and found three awards waiting for me from CC@Lace’n’RibbonRoses. What an honor……Thanks CC.
Please visit CC and see the other more deserving bloggers.
Mr. Tom thinks they are for him and I guess they are. He is an award in himself.
Thanks again CC. Happy Monday to all.
Thanks to all the ladies above:
Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch
Rhondi @ Rose Colored Glasses
Leigh@ Tales from Bloggeritaville
Suzanne @ Colorado Lady
I am well aware that I am cheating
but I am in real need of Turkeys……
yes 2 (two) turkey HENS. Ms Hen was
killed and Mr. Tom T is suffering
So I pray the above ladies and all my blogger friends will forgive me this time and help me find 2 turkey hens.
This was the only way I knew to reach so many people at one time. Of course it would only work if the hens were in Texas, but I thought some of you might appreciate my problem.
Here is a picture of the handsome fellow, it you want to show it to the hens.
These are pictures of Mr. T’s table, as you can see, he is a very refined turkey.
He is also very thrifty, what he does not eat for lunch, he cover with plastic wrap and saves for supper.
He also searches the ads for sales on bags of corn.
Mr. Tom T will be ever so grateful for any leads you
might have that will lead him to HENS!
Well Mr. T and I have racked our brain for something
vintage to satisfy the Colorado Lady and the only
thing or person we could find that was vintage was
ME! I am getting older by the minute trying to find
Mr. T a couple of mates.
Now you all know this is not me…….I have short hair, but what the heck !!!!! Ok, you can stop laughing and get out there and find some turkeys!
Have a great day !
