Life among the cows

A little taste of my life lately, in pictures.

The tree finally came down. In February. But, don't worry! It is still sitting in my living room floor. Don't think I went and got all organized.



The dad's challenged the boys to a full-on game of football in the field last week. The dad's won. I guess.



Conquered a gluten free muffin. I am calling them a success. Two words: xantham gum.



All that cold crap finally went away. The sun has returned, along with shorts, flip flops and lots of time outside. Ahhh.



My Dyson started to REALLY lose its suction. I have absolutely no idea how that could be.



These guys were heading right down the highway by our place, on their way home from the rodeo. It was a decent sized caravan. The best part was the final trailer ... of port-a-potties. Authentic.



Right now I am sitting by an open window, with Ingrid Michaelson coming from the field where the boys are throwing around a football, and I am watching this:






Today I plan to accomplish much while still celebrating simplicity. The breeze is blowing me forward, and putting a smile on my face. I choose to have a good day.

Last week when you sent me the picture of the clog in your Dyson (which says a lot about our friendship.. what, I don't know) I thought it was a dead owl. I was like, how on earth did her kids vacuum up a dead owl with the Dyson? The thing sucks, but not THAT good..

Send some sun this way. Just when we thought spring might really be on it's way, we got dumped on with 9" of new snow yesterday.

Oh thankyou, I haven't taken my tree down either and it is nice to know I am not the only one.

I saw this blurb on my phone, and was a little concerned about what cows had to do with things that vibrate... clearly, I am still waiting for that post. ;-)

Dead owl…… “how did they vacuum up a dead owl???” My question is how do you get them to vacuum at all?

Love the hula hooping with friends, very, very typical tween fun. ; )

Love the pics. The Dyson one made me laugh so hard. We destroyed our dyson. Not supposed to be able to. We did.
