Moving is a major pain! We are almost done with moving things out of The Place and into storage so we can take things back to The Ranch or have them on hand if we get another place. I started packing several days ahead of the move, and that was darn good. Otherwise, we would [...]

Snow, Storms, and Wind

It may not quite be spring around here, but it is beginning to feel like it. We have snow this morning, which is wonderful. It is just a dusting, more covering the truck and the pasture, of course, but I will take the moisture anytime, anywhere! One thing that makes me pull my hair out [...]
