It’s quiet on the home front……..


It’s very quiet here on the Range.  I have had one of my nieces staying here while some work was being done at her house and Miss T has been here as Mr. D has been sick but he is better so she went home and my niece is out for the evening. They thought he had whooping cough on top of the pneumonia but the test results came back negative for the WC.  He’s such a little bitty guy, I hate to see him sick and the cough has been awful.  Hopefully he will be able to go back to school for the three and a half days next week and be able to enjoy Christmas.

He and his Dad went with the Patriot’s to Philly a week or so ago and had a great time.  It’s so nice that they can sometimes travel with the team.  He loves it and it’s a nice lad/dad time.



They had a chance to explore Philly a bit, I think I have posted some of those pictures already. 

The Liberty Bell.



Down on the field before the game.  He always wears his old fashioned helmet to the games.


Getting some autographs from the players.



He teases me about liking Vince Wilfork!  I told him that Vince gives good hugs.  Miss T told Grampie last week that I had a boyfriend…….




I guess Grampie already knows! ha!



Okay, enough about football.

The boys are fat and fuzzy.  Nick had a mishap in the pasture and I had to have the vet come with his portable x-ray machine and check his ankle.  I was very relieved when it turned out to be a wrenched ankle and not a fracture!  It has been so warm that the pastures are muddy and the horses get running and playing in it and it is hard on their joints.  He had to have a shot in his ankle joint and some IV medicine and seems to be much better.  Little Bud had a snotty nose so I had the vet come check him as I worry about pneumonia with him as he is so old but it cleared right up with meds and he seems to be doing great.  Kipper and Scoot are the wooly mammoths with all the hair they have even with this warmer weather that we have had all fall and winter.  I have their blankets ready for when they need them though.


I had all my Christmas lights on last night and the rest off as I watched a Christmas story starring Reba McIntire.  I have lights in the living room, kitchen, sunroom and dining room.  It was so pretty and soft.  I like the Hallmark Channel as they have nice shows this time of year.  Yes, I know they are rather predictable but I like a story that ends well.  :o)  Also when you watch Hallmark you know it is family friendly and you aren’t going to be shocked out of your knickers with your grandkids watching with you!!!!


I have been thinking about Lori aka Barn Goddess a lot lately.  She was one of my blogging buddies that passed away last year very unexpectedly.  All of you horse people knew her and there is an update on her blog in the comments written by her sister if you want to read it.  Mikael  @ Mikael’s Mania was kind enough to let me know.  All you horse people know Mikael too and that she is having some health problems.  Thank you Mikael for e-mailing me!!!!!! Get well very soon!


I guess we aren’t going to have any snow for Christmas this year. Waaaaaaaaaa! I don’t like an open winter like this, hopefully we will get some snow soon.  Hope you all are getting all those last minute Christmas things done, I keep thinking that I am done and then think of something else.  Guess that is normal eh?  Merry Christmas from our home to yours!!!

Great pics as always :) Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. You might get a bunch of snow yet, you never know.
Thanks for the update on BG's blog, and I'm hoping Mikael is feeling better, I've been thinking about her.

I'm glad to read that D did not have WC and that he is feeling better. Poor little guy!!!

Loved seeing your pictures. A new boyfriend.....ummmmmm. I see R is okay with it. LOL

I am enjoying the week back in my sewing room. I might be able to finish the raincoats for the girls before Christmas. I hated the thought of giving them IOUs.

Good news about the horses! You do not need another year of problems with them. I am surprised that they are getting so much hair with a cooler than normal winter. I hope you get the snow for all of your snow fun. Watch it come while you are in FL!!!

Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family. I hope to see you in the new year. xox
