Weekend Recap – 8.28.2017

Weekend Recap 8.28.2017 - sheerheart.org

It’s time for a little weekend recap action on the blog today. Hurricane Harvey has made its impact across Texas. However, it didn’t impact me quite as much as we thought/hoped for. Nonetheless, I’m sending up my prayers for all affected. As terrible as it has been to see the damage and pain caused, it has also been a beautiful thing to watch people helping others no matter who they are. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see all of these good deeds and efforts publicized for weeks, months and years…

Moo Cow Moo

Calf Club

Some days, you just need to look at cute pictures of cows to get you going. Something is in the air, my allergies are on overdrive and medicine is wearing off. Figured it was as good of a time as ever to share with y’all some pictures I took last week, withย my new lens. These cows and calves sure look happy to be on a fresh pasture! And of course I had to make a stop up at Grandma and Grandpa’s to see what I could find there. Well hope…

Diamonds are Forever

Grandpa and Grandma - sheerheart.org

Sixty years. The diamond anniversary they call it. Not sure if Grandma knew that this year, but she missed her chance at scoring yet another ring with a big ole rock. If you know my grandma, you can picture just about all ten of her fingers sporting at least one ring, but a few may even have a couple stacked. I ought to do a whole post discussing her rings. She has a story for each of them. Not all are worth huge sums of money, but those usually have…

Top 5 Friday: Sunrises

Top 5 Friday: Sunrises Sharing with y'all my most favorite sunrise pictures I have taken. sheerheart.org

Sunrises are one of God’s greatest gifts. As I get ready in the morning, my mind is moving even slower than my body. But boy my brain sure does turn on quick when I look outside and see the start of a beautiful sunrise. You can just tell when it is going to be good. All of a sudden, my brain is running. Where is my camera? In my closet? In my car? Where are my keys? How much time do I have? How long can I possibly wait before…

The Goings: Filling My Days with the Four-leggeds

Weaning Calves June 2016 - Cows - sheerheart.org

It sure has been a busy June. Already halfway through 2016. Unbelievable. But can’t complain too much about that. Halfway through just means I have had plenty of weekends so far in 2016 to have fun and toe the line with trouble! :) Figured it has been a hot minute since I shared pictures of cows with y’all. So today is the day, you’ll get to see lots of pictures. Disclaimer: not all pictures include four-legged mammals. Some contain no mammals at all. Also there may be a picture of…

Oh How Beautiful

South Texas Sunrise

Well it should be no surprise that this South Texas girl doesn’t prefer temperatures below 60ยฐ F, let alone those in the 30s! However, even I must admit the winter season has the ability to create some of the most gorgeous sunrises. Monday morning, I was ready to get out of the door and off to work before 7. But I looking out the window above our kitchen sink I saw the beginnings of what looked like a decently pretty sunrise. As I started the car to warm it up,…

Sunburnt in October

Working Cows w Grandpa

Occasionally weekends come around and I have no extensive plans. This is becoming less and less often, but when they do come around, I welcome them with open arms and try my damnedest to make the most of it! It was only a couple of weeks ago, I shared some pictures and happenings from the Commercial Heifer Validation. That was a fun day but a bit different from the usual working cow events. Like I summarized in that post and many prior, it doesn’t matter how many years I grow…

Things Tuesday: 07/14/2015

Grandpa's Girl - sheerheart.org

Knock, knock. Who’s there? The middle of July. Yep, July 15th is right around the corner, a couple of hours from now! I would say where has the time gone, but I know the answer: work, play, Aggie things, family, sleep. ONEย My dear grandpa turned 82 yesterday!!! Even though I think almost daily about how much time has flown, it is accentuated when you look back on how much time hasย passed since various milestones. It feels like yesterday that all 100+ family and friends gathered at our house to celebrate…

The Thunder Rolls

Rainbow Over Wheat

Day after day, it seems, rain and thunder storms are in the forecast. And I am not complaining! As I highlighted on Tuesday, we are so close to being completely out of a drought that has lasted over four years. So needless to say, rain several weeks in a row is a welcome sight no matter how many plans it changes and how many times I have to wash muddy jeans! Yesterday we ended the day with 1″ in the gauge and today it has played around for a bit…

Big City Turn Me Loose, Set Me Free

03.27.2015 On Oats

Back in May of last year, I had posted a feature on some of my favorites from the great Merle Haggard, and here recently one of those tunes has stayed on the tip of my tongue. But no, I am not walking off of my job today! Ha, in fact other than my job, there has been a lot of change in my life here in 2015. The most important change of all, would be my living situation! I have completely moved out of the city and out to the…
