January 2013! I'm Back

Good morning world! I have been on a real dry spell or funk could not seem to be able to sit down and compose anything since may,I tried a few times but could not do it. I am not one for new year's resolutions,cannot seem to keep them so I am just going to make a list everyday and get as much done on it as possible.
I have been trying to keep up with reading everybodies posts,made a few comments but not many.2013 I will be trying harder to keep up to everybody and get some posts  up myself. I have been reading Clean and Scentsible and have been inspired to get my house back to being organised, she has some great ideas, some I already knew and just needed to be reminded of and some fresh ones. I have been cleaning kitchen cabinets this week and purging, have a box started for a garage sale or charity and the cupboards look really pretty good, hope they stay that way.If you want some inspiration pay her a visit.
 I have also fallen madly in love recently,and spending as much time with my new love as possible. I feel so much better about life when I get home from our time together.We cannot bring her home until the cattle go to pasture as we need another pen and barn or stable for her and her sister who belongs to our granddaughter.Yes,I have got a new horse! Spending the time with THE GRANDDAUGHTER taking her to 4-H,riding lessons,and just spending time with the horses I caught the bug once again,and decided I was going to get back into it and bought Chilli! Oh how I missed it, she makes me feel like a kid again.(Fuzzy tells me to remember that I'm not,so don't do stupid)
I have been knitting and crocheting,found some neat patterns so have been giving them a go.Doing a bit of work with some old barbed wire creating Christmas trees, which if I don't say so myself are pretty cute.One person who was leaving right after Christmas used it for her main Christmas decoration.
 Doing chores,I have been trying to pick out a few heifers to halter break in case someone decides to do some showing this year,and it never hurts if they know what a halter is.Everyone around here is pretty tight with hay because of the drought this past summer so hoping for an early spring.
Speaking of cattle had a good read when I stopped by to visit Julia at Of Petals and Wool.Love her stories of her Grandchildren and the cattle,her crafts,and just life,if you get a chance stop in and have a look it will be worth your time.
And to my neighbour and dear friend Knitwit, of 2 kids 2 dogs 2cars 2 tired, love it keep it coming makes my day you are an inspiration!
Well its time to go and get some work done, hope life is good and keep smiling! Take care and God bless!

  1. Hi Granny Bob, how nice to see you blogging again. I'm glad that you're in the cleaning and purging mood. It always feels so good after it's done.
    The days are slowly starting to get longer now although I haven't noticed it as I'm in the barn when the sun comes up.

    How nice that you have a new love in your life to make you feel like a kid again. I think that this horse will be very good for you.

    I haven't worked much on my rug lately but I'm ready for another update.

    I used to knit in the winter but haven't picked up my knitting needles. I always have more work than I can do although I don't work hard.

    Sorry about your shortage of hay, we were short two winters ago because of constant raining weather and had to buy a lot of hay but we had plenty these the past two haying seasons. We had so much as a matter of fact that my husband had to built an extra storage tarp barn 120 feet long by 22 feet wide.

    Have a nice weekend
