A few months ago Daughts was walking the back way into Weston and came across some wild flowers that resembled upside down lilies. “I have no idea what those are,” I said and the next time I walked I took a detour. “They look as though they’ve been dug up and tossed on the road-side,”…

Our brand new Deacon, fresh out of seminary, brings insight to those of us who have been around a long time and claim to have, “Heard it all!” I, for one, can never hear too much about the Lord. For me there are always new ideas, interesting viewpoints and varying perspectives, depending on the author…

When I was young I wanted six children. My parents, with their two, thought I was crazy. Hubs and I settled on four when my OBGyn advised that four C-sections were quite enough.  I kept my fingers crossed for twins…probably a blessing that they were all loners! As I was raising my children I had…

I love farm machinery. At our last garden club meeting – held at Myer’s Park & Event Centre, a beautiful 158 acre piece of property with research gardens; also the stomping ground of Collin County’s Master Gardeners – we were walking through the beds, paying attention to the elaborate stone and metalwork of the walkways, the herbs…

We all enjoy Amazon Prime, I can order something and get it tomorrow. It’s convenient, I don’t even have to leave my house, packages come to the front door, sometimes even on a bench inside our front porch. However, because I live out in the country, it doesn’t always seem safe to have random deliverers…

Our trip to Kingsland in the Texas hill country included a locked room in our suite that drove me to distraction… Ever curious it invoked almost too much temptation for me to ignore. As a child and young adult if I could find a way to open a door closed to me, without being found out,…

When we moved into Footlights 4 years ago we had planned to build two porches so we could leave the doors open and get that breeze-way effect.  The back porch was already covered and we slapped up a frame to screen it in and talked about eventually expanding to incorporate the uncovered portion of the…

Shads is our Star Fetcher…he’ll chase toy mice and little fluffy balls and bring them back just like a dog. I didn’t say that! This year we have a lot of large grass-hoppers in the flower beds, they hop on the screen and drive the cats crazy… But I think Shads, Madge and Callie now…

This is my best Bud, Rooster, who, after a busy spring of lamb duty is back to saying good morning to me as I run past. Rooster has a girl-puppy in-training.  She’s about the same age as Sprout, our son’s Pyrenees, and I’ve been watching her grow from a distance. She has been living in…

Sprout really isn’t much of a walker. I ended up giving up on her company during my morning walks because I thought dragging her along the lane rather defeated the purpose of walking a dog. However, this morning as I was taking her for a quick spin around the outside of the house Charlie came…
