Week 17 of 52

I snapped a few pictures of some weeds in one of the fields. They are weeds, but when there is a bunch of them, they are pretty.

Here is week 17's photo:

So..What's been going on?

A lot and at the same time, very little. Does that make sense?
Last week...well I think it was last week, we registered Dylan for kindergarten. Maybe I mentioned that already? I'm forgetful, don't you know that by now? He did fine I guess. A little reserved but not as bad as I thought he would be. Preschool will be over in less than one month.
Some planting has begun, but we have had a few days of rain here and there which is starting to slow things down. I say it every year....once they get started, they just need to be able to work straight through. All that this rain does is drag out the whole process.
We have all been having issues with our allergies this year. So much more than any other year. It is so frustrating. I guess that is what we get for not having a winter. Really this whole year has been so odd. We go from near 80 temps all the way down to barely 50 in a matter of days. I keep waiting for "normal" to stick around. I am still curious about what the rest of the year will bring.
Here is where I apologize. I always have a lot to say until I sit down and start to write it out. As soon as this empty page pops up, all of the words leave me. I will get back into all of this shortly. I promise.

Not around much

Sorry the posts have been few and far between. I hope to get back to normal soon. I've been tired and stressed off and on. In the afternoons when I have time to sit and write, all I want to do is sit under a blanket and do nothing but zone out. Enjoy the quiet.
Stick with me, I will get back into it soon.

Week16 photos: Cell phone pictures

This week everything was taken with my cell phone.


Here is the photo for week 16. I went out to get them from the field. I had an appointment so Ryan had to take them in the tractor with him while I was gone. One the way back, I noticed they were holding hands!

Where's the wine?

We didn't do much this weekend. Sunday was grocery day as usual. And as usual I didn't get everything on my list. I get so frustrated with the store at times. They are out of this or that, they don't have what I want. For 3 weeks now, I keep looking for flat leaf parsley. They haven't had it. This time they were also out of strawberries. Blah...anyway.
I have been pushing the kids out the door each morning right after breakfast. Inside they drive me insane. And at least I can get things done while they are playing too. Oh, no worries, we are so far from the road that we cant even see the road. There is no danger of them getting caught up in traffic. There are too many fields for them to run through. But yesterday and today it has been so incredibly windy out here. Windy enough that when Ethan comes around a corner it knocks him back. So this evening when they should have been out there, they weren't. Hopefully tomorrow is nice so I can get them out.
Wednesday Dylan has kindergarten registration. I am going to be honest too...I am not sad about sending him to kindy each day. He enjoys school, and I am hoping the same holds with this new school. And honestly I need the break. I have said it before and I will say it again, I get stressed. I am nervous about the assessment though. Not because I am afraid that he doesn't know things but because he is shy. I am not sure if he will answer the questions they ask him. Just because he is shy. Who knows...I am hoping he surprises me. I need to get the paperwork together for that day too. I meant to do it yesterday, but guess what! I forgot. Whoa...big surprise there.
What else?...Oh, we got our old house rented out. So no more worrying about it. Hopefully the renter is a good one. I guess we will find out! But anyway I am still glad that it is rented out. And we didn't have to waste the money by putting it in the paper. We saved that step at least. The kids will be in bed soon and I cant wait. The wine is in the fridge ready for my glass. I am ready to relax a bit.

Easter Weekend Rewind

Doing this with photos! I hope you all had a nice weekend. Ryan was very busy this weekend trying to get everything done. We stayed close to home for our Easter get together so that he could come home and get back to work. Despite Ryan's busy weekend, we had a nice Easter Sunday.

Book Review: The Real Elizabeth

I was given a chance to read a book called The Real Elizabeth written by Andrew Marr. I really enjoy these types of books. Books about real people, real events. I didn't enjoy reading my history book in school, but in biography form, I will read just about anything. This book is about Queen Elizabeth II. While it is not an in depth book of her daily life, is still gives you a look at her as the Queen. Even as an American, I admit there is a bit of interest and intrigue with the Royals of Britain. Honestly, there isn't much about that them that I know. So this book gave a bit of background and information in the history of the family and of course Elizabeth herself. One interesting tidbit about the's being published to celebrate her 60th year as Queen. 60 years! Can you believe that? And yes, the book also touches a bit on Princess Diana.
The book includes back story of the Windsors and how and when she came into her current role. It highlights many of the milestones that made her who she is today. From her marriage, coronation, children, up to her grandchildren, the book touches it all. Like I mentioned before, it is not an in depth look at her daily life. The Royals are very guarded as to their personal lives. Well, most of them, as you will read about in the book. Queen Elizabeth is very traditional and keeps many parts of her life very private. She has seen a lot and heard a lot, which you will read about in this book. Personally, I have always wondered what the role of the Royals were in the government. After reading this book, I now know the answer to that question. The book touches on the relationship between the Queen and the many Prime Ministers. That is where you get an idea of part of her role in the government. And I must admit, I didn't think she had much to do with the government itself, but I was wrong. There isn't much that she doesn't know about in her country.
As someone who knew very little about the Royals and Queen Elizabeth, I found the book rather interesting. I imagine if I were British, I'd find it even more interesting. It is an easy reading book. Easy to follow but keeps you interested. Look it up on Amazon or in your local bookstore. Really, give it a read. I promise you will learn something, but you wont be bored.

Week 14 photo

Not a whole lot happening this week but it has been one very long week. Dylan has been on spring break. I get used to the coming and going 3 days a week, so yeah, this week has been pretty laid back. In addition to this weeks photo, I also took some of Dylan trying to feed a calf. It didnt last long because the calf wasnt too interested, and to be honest, neither was Dylan. He wanted to pet it, but he worried more about what his papaw was doing in the tractor. Oh well. Tractors are more fun than calves I guess.

And here is week 14's photo:
