As you can see by these pictures lightening does strike in the same place twice. We have went from severe drought all summer to heavy rains all the month of January. Not complaining of the rain but gosh these thunder storms and tornadoes are enough to make me crawl under the beds with Tinkerbell.
These pictures are of two trees on the North Forty struck by lightening this past week. Guess who is going to be busy busy busy clearing away debris. Thank goodness I am going to get help with these because if I were doing it alone it would take me til next January.
Now the weeds are so high I am going to have to get the tractors out and shred. I tried mowing with just a John Deere the other day but the weeds were too high so now I have to get out the big one.
My new neighbors who moved into the pink house have a little dog. One of those that is real skinny smaller than a rat and barks all the time. Well he is so small he gets out of their picket fence and finds me and barks his fool head off. I love love dogs but I am use to peace and quiet out here not a dog following me around barking. He followed me into the barn just a yapping and I pretty much wanted to scream at him and chase him away but I pretty much kept my cool. I start taking the booster cables off the tractor and moving them and the charger to the back of the barn when he scared me and the cables touched and sparks flew. Scared me so bad I thought I was going to have an accident. Then I am thinking I have been shocked and my hair is probably standing up straight out on my head. About then his owner walks inside the barn and I jump back and scream like ET had just entered the barn. lol
She said," My mom always told me when a person is jumpy like that their a mean person.....I told her that her mom could be right." hahaha
When I am on the North Forty I am not use to anyone being around.
I am sitting here eating a warm bowl of chili while watching Sleepless in Seattle. I feel like I am not an American for not watching a movie while the Super Bowl is going on.
How about you are you watching the Super Bowl? I use to love football but not so much any more. Actually I hardly watch TV. Lately I have been enjoying my new Color Nook the kids gave me for Christmas. I was so proud of myself when I downloaded a book from my library. It only took me a couple of hours but I managed to finally figure it out. lol
I just finished the Hunger Games Trilogy so if any one has a Nook and wants to rend them I will try and figure out how to lend them. I told my son Chad that I read faster with my Nook. Wish you could of seen the look on his face. Priceless!
Last weekend at Kaci's Basketball Game, I snapped this pic of Chad and Christi!
Good things seem to be happening for Christi. She started her new job this past week. I am excited for her.
Last Tuesday the day before my renters were to move in they backed out. I was really upset but God as always was watching over me and sent me the sweetest renter. She just moved here with her two small children and is recently divorced. I immediately liked her and she moved into today. So once again my prayers have been answered. Job for Christi and my house rented.
Now I must go but I am sending you the best wishes for a wonderful week. May all your prayers be answered.
Love to all
