February Days from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

You would think that the cold winter months would coincide with more blogging, but that doesn't seem to be the case around here. We're doing our best to keep up with Skeet: It's been an unusual winter. Single digit days mixed in with high 70's from one day to the next and not a drop of moisture since the first week in October. It's dry and dusty. Praying for rain has once again become the

Still Working Through November from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

The days and weeks just keep marching on and I just keep falling further behind. Each day I intend to get something posted and each day it doesn't happen. Everyone else is running full speed ahead into Christmas and I haven't even posted since the middle of November. So, I'm going to start where I left off and hope that I'm not posting about Christmas when Easter rolls around. :) I hope that,

Catching Up from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

This past weekend, DH and I made our annual trek to Amarillo for the WRCA World Championship Ranch Rodeo. It's a 4 day affair, but DH and I only go for 2 days. It's like a family reunion for us. We look forward to it all year, but by noon on Saturday, it gets REALLY crowded and DH and I have exceeded our ability to socialize so we make our escape and head back to the ranch. It is SO good to

Yes, Another Post About Fall Works from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

Are ya'll tired of reading about fall works yet? If I don't get this stuff written down, I'll forget and I really like to keep some sort of record about our life here at the end of the dirt road and this is weaning season so that's what you get. Should I warn you that this is a picture heavy post? Probably no need because you have come to expect it when you visit here. -Grin- Fall is our busiest

Still Weaning and a Speedy Trip to Nebraska from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

I'm still playing catch up, but we finally finished weaning on Saturday and I've still got pictures to sort through and share from the previous week. Most days, the boys gather a pasture, drive them to the pens, sort off the calves from the cows, run the calves through the chute to process and vaccinate them, and then run the cows through. They bring them up a few head at a time: And funnel

Shucking My Apron from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

I keep intending to write posts, but lately I feel as if I'm running to keep up . Two Mondays ago  we had a big sale and I didn't even leave the sale barn until 8 p.m. That's 11 hours of sitting at the computer. The sale doesn't ever break and something sells every 20 seconds or less and I have to keep up with the sale. My job's not hard, just intense because if I'm not vigilant about it, a price

Fall Works - Day 6 from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

Well, my attempt at posting each day I cooked this week was an epic fail.  Between cooking, washing mountains of dishes, and hauling the crew out, I didn't have much time and I figured that yet another photo of  me making yet another batch of bread just didn't make for the most riveting daily reading.   Not that I ever post anything riveting, but variety would be nice. :) A food

Fall Cow Works - Day 1 from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

I'll be cooking for the crew for 6 days this week and on Saturday I HAD to get to town for groceries. The list was long  And the price was steep I spent another $150 at Sam's and it took me 10 trips to haul everything in to the house. I fixed waffles this morning along with eggs, bacon, and fruit for breakfast and then jumped in the rig to haul the boys out. Lots of

Life is Busy, But, Yes, I Remember How to Sew from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

I actually started this post a week ago and happened and posting did not.  I had to blow some dust off of my sewing machine case last week, but I was determined to get some sewing in for National Jelly Roll Day. I keep it covered during these long, dry spells when it may be weeks before I darken the doorway of my sewing space. We've just been so busy outside. One day I might be

10 Commandments of a Ranch Wife from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

10 years. It's hard for me to believe I've been writing here for 10 years today! This is my place to journal and document some of what goes on at the end of the dirt road and I never expected that anyone would be interested enough to read it, but this space has become even more special to me because of ya'll. I am humbled that ya'll take the time from your busy lives to stop in here for a visit

Dirt, Demolition, and a Dozer from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

You would think that a wet summer and green grass would mean we get to sit back on our laurels and take it easy, but it really just means that we get to tackle other projects. Thus, the endless plumbing photos: A good assistant is invaluable and our top dog is always on the job and he takes it very seriously Improving the water system will make things easier in the long run, but it means

Pick Up the Shovel and Dig Another Well from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

I hope that everyone enjoyed a safe and fun Labor Day weekend. I know that many folks are dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the ongoing fires in the Northwest. I can't imagine the work that lies ahead, but we're sending continued prayers and doing what we can from this end. As for us, no cookouts, or gatherings, as most of the country kicked off the Labor Day weekend. We spent
