clearing up stuff and catching up stuff

Johnny is so cute! As much as I would like to claim him I cannot.We sold Belle about a year ago and so he is not mine. The story of Belle She is a good Mama. She moves her baby away from the strangers that are coming into her field.

Brook took her second degree red belt test and passed. She was worried that she would not test. Master Lee told her she was not ready. In just 3 days time she showed him that she was and so the day before the test he told her she would test. The next test is the black belt test. The earliest she can take it is in October.

The water company has now said that we can water vegetable gardens. Now maybe I can save what is left. This drought is killing us. I may have to buy dried alfalfa cubes to feed them this winter. We got 5 minutes of rain today. First time in almost 2 months. It settled the dust for about an hour. Now it is just as it was before the rain, except it is hotter!

My exercise class is doing good. I have not lost weight but I have gained strength. I hold the class record for pushups. I did 50 on Tuesday. Beat the men! I might have been able to do more but the situps and pushups are at the end of class when we are tired! I hope the class continues.

Brook's TaeKwonDo demo group will be preformingat the Riverbend Festival next Wednesday night. Pictures will be taken. Travis Tritt will be preforming that night also.

  3. OK, OK, I'm gonna let that slide.  I'm going to pretend that Travis Tritt's last name was just a typo.  I'm going to pretend that your not dissing my man.  Sure, I've moved on to Trace Adkins, but in the 90's, I would have shot you for that man.  Love ya, anyway!

  6. We are having a little bit of that lack of rain here also... my pastures have grass, but not what we usually have.... I've been having to feed the same amount of hay now as I did during the winter <sigh>

    Johnny is an absolute doll!

  7. Congrats to Brook on passing. I'm sure she worked so hard to get where she is. Wow!
    I hope you get some rain so that your garden doesn't die. It's not hot here yet, but we haven't had any rain to speak of all year. We are in our June Gloom.
    Have a good weekend.
    Pam

  12. Good for Brook! She is quite simply amazing, and I bet she'll pass her test in October, too. And good for you-50 push ups is amazing, too. Also, I am glad you can water. I hope you can save some of your hard work in the garden. Margo
