Hubby Doc is Now, (officially) a Cowboy

He's got the hat, he's got the boots, he's worked with the guys in a corral full of cow manure, and now, he's got his own fourwheeler. Wasting no time, he was out early this morning to help moooove some cows. We are gonna have fun with this thing! I hear the country back roads calling our names already.
In the mean time, I had the best time watching two fledgling blackbirds yesterday. They were out of the nest, hanging on the edge of some branches and screaming for food. Every time one of the parents would come near, they went crazy! Eventually, one just fell off the branch in his frenzy to get the food first. Then, the next thing I knew, the other one was on the ground too. Of course, that created all kinds of chaos. All the birds in the yard were freaking out. High drama! Oh, and I made a pie that turned out so pretty, I had to take a picture of it. Yum!

Tailgate party in the High Country

We got up early one morning, grabbed a thermos of coffee and some left over blueberry pie, and headed up a dirt road to the high country. It was a pretty rough road, but our old PU climbed it like a mountain goat. Incredible view, and lots of Bitterroot in bloom.
We are getting lots done. Hubby Doc is filling up the shed with all his tools and stuff, and I'm happy to get the celler space for all my stuff. It's all about getting organized!

Back on the Farm

Oh, we are sooo happy to be back on the Farm! Of course, we started right in on our shed project. We've been working on it for over a year, so we are anxious to "git er dun". Hubby Doc finished the drywall, while I started in on the rock around the outside. We did a little painting, put up the ceiling and will get to the floor soon. We should be moving stuff in very soon!
I'm making sure Hubby Doc is veeerrryyy careful on the ladder! (in case Sue reads this)

Here are a few more shots. Hubby Doc's outdoor workshop. A before picture of the shed, and a shot of the lovely lilac in front of the house. Also , our cow family. They've been watching our progress. The babies are so cute. They get real frisky in the evening and chase around the field.

45 degrees to 85 degrees!

We left Alaska and headed to California. Hubby Doc is attending the PRIMED Conference this week in Anaheim. It's his favorite conference, so he is having a great time.
Today is my birthday (yes Cinco de Mayo, my friends call me Consuelo) so what better place to spend the day. I'm headed out to find Mexican food ASAP.
On our way to Anaheim, we stopped by for a, too short, visit with our Grandbabies
P.S. I'm 39 (again!)also, the infant isn't ours, just afriend.
