Well, I'm here to tell you that no matter what you think, things are not always what they seem, not for me or for anyone else. Take this photo for example...
This is a normal day at my house. Not sure what this steer was up to - but really?! This is how most of my days go, not even kidding! I guess some days, you just need to scratch . . . :0)
And how did this happen . . . I don't even know how or when I took this photo, but it was on my phone!
And of course, here I am watching, Dancing with the Stars. My socks were on skitty-wampus, and there is a hole in the toe of one of them, underneath the socks, my nail polish is coming off of my toes, and I sure could use a pumice stone! I had to put my feet up, because the horses got out a little earlier in the evening and my feet hurt after chasing them down the road. This is all after we had the, mobile-butcher, come to get the cows that same morning. I took a shower and turned the music up LOUD while that was going on...I'm not good with that kind of thing. Again, a normal day.
And really, let's get serious here, at some point during my family gatherings, THIS happens- how many cell phones can you count in this photo?! And is Christina putting a hex on someone?! Maybe she's just pointing out who should be off of their phones. We really DO have fun when we are together, but there are always these wonderful moments that don't make the blog-cut . . . like this one. We truly do love each other, and most of the time we actually talk to each other. And our poor shed . . . one day we will get some real doors on it. Of course we've been saying that for the past 6 years!! They don't bother us though, I just call them curtains.
And this photo is one of my all-time favorites . . . bottoms up! Tanny just loved drinking out of the water cooler, without a cup! The funny thing about this photo is that this boy doesn't wear diapers! He got his pants wet, and so we put a diaper on him so he would feel dry, which in turn, made his pants too tight, and no matter what we did, they just slipped down . . . I love this photo . . . life just happening before my eyes. And please don't look at these poor stairs that need sanded and re-finished, they look very sad. We will try to get it done before the snow flies.
I usually try to take a look at the sunset each night - Mother Nature's sunsets are,
And here's the view I look at most every night as I am watching TV, crocheting or napping, and before I go to bed. What you don't see are my sandals on the floor, the books on the hearth, the tissues sitting on the side table, the yarn and crochet hooks next to me and the dust on the furniture. But, I love this view, mostly because this is where I live, love, work, play, pray and love my family, no matter how ordinary and normal we are - normal is amazing, and just how I want it to stay!
Hugs and Love,
