Today we had a little bit of rain. The aftereffect of the rain was the beautiful clouds throughout the day on the ranch…



Today, I finally saw the illusive pigs that people talk about here in the country. I was driving on the beautiful curvy road, and right on the hill by one of my favorite homes there was a HUGE black pig. As I was taking in the experience, and feeling proud of my little country moment there were three more pigs in the road right in front of me. OMG! I was so excited!!! One little ruby pig kept running his little heart out, and would leap into the fence, then bounce right off the fence. I am sorry, but I thought it was funny. I could not wait to tell another person that I saw the pigs. I tweeted about the experience, since I did not see any people for a while.

I did get to share my experience with the family at dinner time this evening. I can’t help it…it was exciting to see piggies in the road. LOL!

Ranch Work

We have been working hard here on the ranch. There are always lots of jobs. I recently purchased some chimes for the trees around the house. I just had to have something new in the yard. I even bought some “kinetic sculptures” for the yard. Mind you, we have no grass, we are waiting for the landscape designer to start his work. That will all begin on Monday. My husband has been hard at work making the driveway turn circle. He has also plowed the 42 acres. We have taken up all the old fencing too. Like I said…We always have stuff to do.

We are so excited about the pipes going in, this means that I get to have the fountain that I have been wanting so bad. It will look so nice in the front. I will have to take some photos this weekend.

Alright, I got to get my calendar in order. How is your new year?

Country Problems

Today, as my daughter and I were coming home we saw two little dachshunds coming down the mountain. We stopped, and the next several cars behind us stopped. Two girls grabbed the little brown one, but the little black one with a collar and shiny tag ran down the hillside. We tried to catch the the dog, but could not get to it. It is a pretty steep hill. By the time the black dog disappeared there were at least 5 other cars full of people that had stopped to help us find the little thing. 

Every single car that came by us stopped to see if we were ok, and asked if there was anything they could do to help. The girls that caught the brown dog kept him with them. My daughter and I went to the near by ranches to tell them to watch out for a small dog just in case it came to their house. None of the ranches had anyone home, or at least if they were on the property they were not at their main house. 

Once we got home we told our neighbor the story so she could call any neighbors that might know who the small dogs belong to in the area. My hope is the poor thing can hide from the wild animals, and find a home that can help.
