Snake hill

We headed out last night, I wanted to ‘blade Snake Hill (our name for it) with the hopes of seeing a copperhead. We were not disappointed. We love rollerblading so much!

Hollyhocks are blooming!

First hollyhock bloom this year. Last year, they bloomed and then two days later some sort of bug infested them and so I trimmed them to ground to try and save them. I was pretty irritated. Hoping the bugs stay away this year. Look how pretty!

Springtime Roadtrip.

Oklahoma springtime fields.

Arkansas. Cousins. Fields of buttercups. Tire swing. The Child’s first time camping. Cows. Roosters. Horses. Springtime.

Such a beautiful time of the year. Gorgeous mosses, big nope space (leaves of three, leave it be). Picnic at the park. Such warm memories made. Driving home today… Gasquatch stop and The Husband trying to get a wave. He always tries to get a wave.

Book Worm

Something happened to me.

Somewhere around April 15 I downloaded a book about a horse and I disappeared. Since that time, I somehow managed to read 11 books by Angela Dorsey, 9 books by Tricia Goyer and 19 books by Sherry A. Burton.

Hello, I am a book-a-holic and I have no excuses for my behavior. I would also do it again if given the chance. Sleep? Who needs sleep when there are books to be read?

While I was gone, we had a hail storm. I got a bigger glass of hail filled up this time.

The child finished his Awana book and we had a ceremony to celebrate at the church.

I evicted and then wrestled my giant plumeria tree out of the house and then carried my plants out from the greenhouse so they can all enjoy this beautiful spring weather.

The flowers have been blooming in the yard. My mom has been picking the irises and I’ve been picking the roses and bringing them inside so we can enjoy their glory.

One of my favorite authors has a book releasing May 2… that’s tomorrow (!!)… if I disappear again, try to miss me this time.

Southfork Ranch

It was a beautiful day, one of the best days! We caravanned eastward with some friends and spent the day at Southfork Ranch. Famous for being the place where portions of the show “Dallas” was filmed. There was a gun show going on in the event center there, so we walked through and checked it all out. I ended up buying jalapeño almond toffee… at the gun show. 😂 So me!

Then we took the tour of Southfork Ranch. We had a great tour guide and a wonderful docent. Such interesting stories about the place. If you want to drop $2k, you can spend the night in the mansion. I was surprised to find out a couple years ago that the ranch was actually not all that far from us. I especially loved their miniature donkeys and miniature horses. I know I said it already, but what a beautiful day!

Date night!

The Husband and I had a date night on Tuesday. My face hurt from laughing, and we enjoyed the movie, too. So much fun!

Happy Easter weekend!

Our city had a “block party” yesterday. They had the police, firemen and even a SWAT team out with their vehicles for citizens to meet, greet and learn. The In-n-Out food truck was there and tons of vendors set up in the gymnasium.

It was such a beautiful day with friends, and we visited the playground afterwards to run off some energy!

Last night, we dyed Easter eggs and this morning was the Easter egg hunt.

So thankful for our Lord and Savior who we celebrate annually on this day!
… and now we’re preparing for Tuesday, minus one. Where did the weekend go in such a hurry?

The 1900s

The child: Did you know the first Toy Story movie was made back in the 1900s?
Me: What????
The child: Yeah, like way back in 1995!
Me: 😳🤣 That is NOT what I think of when someone says the 1900s….

Fridge laugh

The child: Can I have a fridge?
Me: No.
The child: Please?
Me: No.
The child: I want a fridge!
Me: No.
The child: I want a fridge with an Alexa in it.
Me: No! That’s creepy! But I am curious, why do you want a fridge?
The child: I could put my spaghetti in it!
Me: Ha! You can get a fridge when you’re older.
The child: How much older?
Me: When you’re 21.
The child: But that’s so far away …
Me: Huh. No, it’s not.
The child: Can I have a fridge today?
Me: No.
The child: Daddy will buy it for me.

Two hours later…
The child: Daddy, can I have a fridge?
Husband: No.

Me: 😀

(By the way, he didn’t really want a fridge. He just wanted me to laugh… which I did. :D)
