Barn Observations

I spend a lot of time at the barn, but during work this past weekend, I spent more than usual, so I got to see all sorts of fun stuff. At one point I was driving the tractor out and I accidentally disturbed a next of field mice. The mom bolted with some babies still […]

Renovation Begins

The barn has needed repairs since we moved in, which embarrassingly, was 7 years ago. It took a while to work through the procrastination. But, now that I’ve started, I’m very excited to continue, and all I want to do it keep working on it. It’s really not that hard, and it’s so rewarding to […]

How to Take Better Selfies

I will start by saying I’m not a fan of the traditional selfie style photo. The one where you just stretch your arm out with the front facing camera open, and snap the photo. Major dislike. Especially dislike when I see the same person posting basically the exact same selfie photo over, and over, and […]

Planning for Planting

I have plans, BIG PLANS. Well, no, maybe medium sized at best. But my plans involve getting some planting done. There’s a few areas around my house that need sprucing up (although not with spruce trees, they are too big), and I want to put in plants around the barn. I’m not very good at […]

Weekly Round-Up Sept 20, 2019

Helmets I ordered my new helmet, and am eagarly awaiting it’s arrival. It’s taking a little bit longer than I expected… maybe today it’ll get here? I definitely need a new helmet. I tried on my old helmet and I’m shocked at how loose it is. I don’t think there’s any protection left there. I […]
