Life Lately

Since I missed posting all of last week, I figured I better catch up with a life lately post.  We haven't been doing anything extraordinary.  In fact it's been quite ordinary, which is usually just how I prefer it.

I've been making time to sit down with a cup of coffee and read for a bit in the afternoons.  We always say, "You can't do it all."  Well, it's true.  But since I neglected blogging all week, I had extra time, where I was able to get in some reading, and it felt good.  Next to the beach, this is my happy place.
A book, a blanket and a coffee, equal a happy me.

I was running low on windshield washer fluid, and I figured it was a good time to show Gracie how to add in some more.  She should have her drivers license within the next two years, and I don't think it hurts to start learning some things early.  There will be less to learn, when the time comes, right?!

My friend Sunny and I headed into Missoula one morning.  She said she'd help me pick out some new glasses.  We decided on one, and then for fun, tried on some that we'd never wear.   The ones we are wearing in the picture were in the new release section.  Really???
 It's a good thing, we're still young enough to take ridiculous selfies and laugh at ourselves.
Now these sunglasses... they on the other hand, scream for a road trip. 

 The kids and I headed back into Missoula a different day for their Dentist appointments.  Red Robin sundaes for the win.

 Someday, I'm hoping that this boy of mine, will smile without his sisters help.

I couldn't even get a smile out of Gracie.  She said she wasn't smiling, because she didn't have time to put on any make up that morning.  Haha!  1 out of my 3 kids smiled... I'll take it, and try again next time.

One day last week, my Mom called me, and told me that she was headed to town for her hair appointment, and that one of the cows was prolapsing.  Great!  She needed me to be in charge until she got back.  She was waiting to see if she could get the Vet to come down, otherwise we'd have to load the cow up and take her to a different Vet. 
This is me checking in on her.  Like I'd know what to do.  Eeek!  Don't worry, eventually the Vet did show up and stitched her up, until she starts to calve in the next couple of weeks.  I'm thinking that maybe I should get a certified midwifery license or something.  All this calving is serious business.  ;)



  1. I don't even know what prolapsing means. But I do know those sunnies totally scream for a road trip. Glad you got some you time last week. :)

  2. I am not sure on this who prolapsing thing --- its safe to say I don't think I want to know either!!! And its impossible your daughter will be driving in two years - she looks so young still!!!

  3. Ha! Love the sunglasses! What is prolapsing?! I finally started a new novel. I'm getting tired of all of my non-fiction. I started Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult. Not sure what to think yet, but I definitely am curious about the ending already. How is the book you're reading?
