It took me 7 and a half hours to smoke the pork butt today. It was totally worth it. Made one of my dad’s favorite meals in honor of him, smoked pork butt and Carrie fries (what my dad called the fries I made). When I was making them, I kept remembering how he wouldContinue reading “Smoking complete”
Today I am smoking a pork butt in honor of my dad. I like smoking about as much as he did. Although we both think the heat up process is so annoying. Got it started at 10:30. Let’s see how long it takes today.
In May, I lost my dad. Today is his birthday and all I can think about it how much I wish he was still here. I wish he was teaching me what he knew, dancing to music with me, laughing with me, and hugging me goodnight. I miss him so bad and it hurts everyday.Continue reading “Today’s a hard day”
I have had several parents reach out to me to help get their kids back on track or help with their work. Being online now, kids have a bigger responsibility. They have more time on their hands and probably most of it is play time. However, they still have school work they have to doContinue reading “Homeschool”
I know my limits. I know when I should stop. I tend to not make the best decisions though. I have a weak back. I cannot tax it too much without it hurting and I can’t lift heavy things with out making my disk bulge. Anyway, yesterday I decided to pull up all 30 ofContinue reading “Limits”
I decided to sit out in pawpaws garage for a bit and meditate because the rain on the metal roof is perfect and beautiful. What would have made it even better if it was in the middle of the woods with a fire going and a cup of tea while I watched the vibrant colorsContinue reading “The rain”
The other day I learned how to remove storm windows, remove old chauk, and put new chauk on. Today I am learning how to paint windows. I love learning new things. All kinds of new things really. What kind of things do you like to learn?
Our weather right now keeps jumping from hot to cold and back again. I have little seedlings coming up and I have to cover them with a tarp to keep them from freezing at night. We have had 30 degree nights these past few nights and it is super frustrating. I cannot image how largeContinue reading “Seedlings and the weather”
Something I love to do is read. What’s even better is reading free books. Some authors will let you have a free book in exchange for a review. Sometimes I find mistakes in the writing that the proofreaders missed and I can send that to the author (privately, not on the review) and they canContinue reading “Reading”
So, my bunny snowball passed away (3/39/2020). She had osteosarcoma and she lived about 6 months from when I had part of her tumor removed. Watching an animal go through that is hard and it is hard with people too. I watched my pawpaw lose his battle with lung cancer. That is a different storyContinue reading “Lost my bunny”
