Country Living

So, at the crack of dawn, I'm woken up by loud POP POP POPs all over the place outside.

I'm thinking, "What the..", and then I remember ...

September 1st - the official start of Dove Hunting Season here.

Jaxon even tells me, "Mommy, I woke up and couldn't go back to sleep because there was a lot of popping going on outside".

*sigh*

Snakes and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

Such is the life when one lives out in the country.

I was getting the little boy into the car one morning, and seat-belting him in, when I happened to glance in the direction of the truck.

I had a "what is wrong with this picture" moment, and then I realised I was looking at a snake.  On our truck's back tyre. ( YES, I SPELL IT AS TYRE ).

We've seen our share of snakes out here, as well as their shedded skin, but usually they're on the ground or in a hole.

THIS one, apparently, was having breakfast.

THIS, I want.

Walking on the treadmill can get pretty ... monotonous .. after a while.  And I NEED to walk for health, for weight, w/ever.

So, to make things less onerous, I have been watching / catching up on movies/tv shows on my tablet as I walk.  I've pretty much caught up on a  bunch of series(es) ?? and am now working on some movies.

So, for the last week I've been watching The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey, and The Desolation of Smaug, in 30 minute installments, more or less.

AND NOW I WANT THIS!!!!

Agony and Ecstasy Part II

The next day after the horrific storm, we were downtown again ( the hubs said "it feels way toooo soon to be back here" ) and you could see where the hailstones had literally made their marks on the road.

The CALF festivities were still in full swing and so we joined in some of the fun
