Rain, rain, rain….

The monsoon season has been a good one. For two weeks now I think it has rain almost every day.

The different variety of wild flowers keeping popping up.

It makes my view everyday an amazing relaxing site.

Martin has dumped over 15,000 gallons of water. And we’ve over filled an un-estimated amount. Over 10″ of rain so far. The average is 8″.

We haven’t had anytime to build because of my work. Thank goodness I have a Martin to help me. He is busy organizing everything for Pie Festival.

We bought a new rhinestone design machine. So he programs the design and it spits it out in rhinestones.

We are donating a his and hers camouflage sweatshirts for the raffle. Hope I win these.

Our morning walks are just so relaxing. Fresh air and cool temperatures.

I saw these white flowers from the kitchen window. Haha. Big fat mushrooms

Our driveway is lined with these small sunflowers.

New little four leaf weed? Flowers? Are popping up in the trails.

The four o’clocks are everywhere here and there.

This beautiful dead wood tree has life all around it.

Our trails are green and grassy.

Life is better when you do it in the woods!

Till next time.


Flower power…

With the monsoon season the wildflowers bloom so crazy.

Martin finally had a chance to finish up our Shit House.

All our compostables go in here….

That’s all I have for today!

Till next time…..


Almost Pie Festival time…

With the Pie Festival closing in, the committee members are busy bees.

Martin has been busy preparing souvenir samples for the committee to chose from. So now he will begin making items to sell. All proceeds will go to the fund raising of new play ground equipment for the children in the community. All donations are tax deductible so if anyone would like to donate please just contact me or Martin.

With everything I got him into he finally had time to put the dining room light together, stained and installed.

He designed, programmed the laser and then cut it out.

It’s perfect! Love it!

Our composting station is almost complete. Martin needs dirt for the first layer.

We will be picking up more wood tomorrow to finish where Shit Happens!

A few projects I completed.

My crazy life is too much fun.

I entered two quilts into a local quilt show. 1-1/2 hours away. This little town Alpine, AZ in the mountains.

I found a groomer in Eagan, AZ to finally give Kansas a hair cut.


We keep telling her she just as beautiful but not sure believes us. Kitty ran away from her.

With all the rain we have been getting this monsoon season there is water in our local little lake.

We haven’t seen water here since we bought our property 11 years ago.

Another watering hole has water!

On our drive today I had the opportunity to catch a few beauties

My lemon tree is even blooming again.

Kitty is always bringing us presents.

We like presents!

Tomorrow we head back to Alpine for the Quilt Show and pick them up. We went thrift store shopping today. My mind is exploding with ideas to make. I don’t know what it is. Living here or altitude sickness but it won’t shut down. If I’m not creating I’m not living. Thankful for my husband who puts up with my crazy ideas.

Till next time……
