Utter Disappointment! :(

Wednesday, April 20, 2011      6 comments

I was so excited to use my new HRM. My old one was from Wal-Mart, and I just wasn't sure that it was doing what I bought it to do: calculate calories. It had a chest strap, I entered gender, weight, age, & height. So, I decide on a Garmin ... Read more

Gentle Rain

Friday, April 15, 2011      4 comments

We have been going nonstop for the last few days. Most of the corn ground has been disked, and we even planted a few hundred acres of corn. Yesterday evening, rain and severe storms were looming. If it rains too hard on corn seed, it forms a cr... Read more

No Rest, I'm Exhausted!

Sunday, April 10, 2011      4 comments

Friday night one of the guys who drives a truck for us got back from hauling corn. He has only worked for us about 2 months, and he hadn't driven a tractor before. So, after about an hour of "training," he took my place so I could take both DDs ... Read more

It's tractor time!

Ok, so the last 5 months have been awesome. I could spend basically as much time as I wanted sparking and exercising. That came to a screeching halt today. Reality hit! We are usually busy planting corn at this time, and have all the anhydrous d... Read more

I have the BEST Spark Friends!

Friday, April 01, 2011      6 comments

OK, I spend way too much time on SP. There is no excuse. It has replaced Facebook for me, and I spent too much time on that! Anyway, I am snoopy; I look at people's trackers, their friends, and take note of how many people have just disappeared ... Read more

Day 15: A picture of something you want to do before you die

When my DH and I got married, we spent one night in a motel on the trip back to Missouri. We planted soybeans the next day. The summer had been dry, and it rained the day be... Read more

Well, I will swallow my pride and put it all out there. I was feeling pretty good about myself until youngest DD took these pics for me. But, when I compare them to where I... Read more

I wore a pair of athletic shorts (in public)!

Yesterday was a beautiful day, considering the weather we have had lately. The temperature reached 70 degrees! I had to pick up my youngest DD after school, and I needed to visit with the principal for a bit. I know it might have been a bit too ... Read more

Day 13: A picture of my favorite band or artist

Tuesday, March 15, 2011      5 comments

I really like lots of country artists, but if I had to chose a favorite right now it would be Jason Aldean. I saw him in concert a couple of years ago, and he is great live.... Read more

My little egg entrepreneur

My youngest has really stepped up and surprised me lately. My oldest DD is the typical oldest child. And my youngest is the typical baby of the family. For example, this is the first year she has expressed an interest in showing a steer at the c... Read more

Day 12: A picture that defines me

Tuesday, March 08, 2011      7 comments

After some thought, here is the picture that defines me. It is the "home place." Our farm is really based here. We store the grain here, have the shop here, and our homes (mine and my in-laws) are here. I say it defines me because our whole life... Read more

Dear Mrs. Dash,

Saturday, March 05, 2011      6 comments

I want you to know that I do not love you. I like you, but you are not in the same league with Lawry's Seasoning Salt, or Lawry's Garlic Salt. I do not like you as well as I like the Six Pepper Blend I WAS using on my morning egg. I have, howeve... Read more

Revamping My Goals

Friday, March 04, 2011      7 comments

Recently I changed my goals for exercise and for desired weight loss. I had originally wanted to lose 2 pounds a week, but I needed to burn 3,000 calories a week to accomplish that. So, I changed it to burn 2,400 calories per week, and now I aim... Read more
