We Knew This Day Would Come…

My family covets Vidalia onions.  Seriously.. if you don’t believe me.. see HERE…or HERE or HERE.

vidalia onion rings, onions

Today we ate the last of them.. I made our last delicious, sweet or

“schweeet” (if you are #4) onion rings.

OOH.. how I love these..

#5 loves them too… Just look at that round face.. those

big brown eyes.. makes you wish Spring was here so

we could get another box. 😉

And a Good Spring Day to You!

This morning I thought I would wake up and see this…

Maybe I should re-state that.  I thought it was going to be the first day of spring,

and if I drove to the back field I would see baby cows… Instead this is what I saw….

There’s about 6″ here so far… What is going on in the world? Why

is it snowing like this in KANSAS on the first day of spring?

Yesterday my iron basket was BEGGING to have flowers planted in it..

now look at it..  Full of snow.  I know my boyfriend, Gary Lezak

says it has something to do with el nino.. but really.. it’s suppose to be SPRING!

We looked out back and saw Mr. Bigglesworth inside the smoker.

Don’t feel bad for the cat.  He’s an inside cat (when he wants to be).

He’s hunting… You see what the photo doesn’t show is hanging from

the tree above him is a bird feeder.  I made a mouse only rule

for him, but like all species that lives in my home he’s disobedient.

I hope spring is more “Spring-Y” where you are!

Springs On the Way!

It’s been a cold snowy winter here in Kansas, but today it  was 54 degrees (#1 even went out and dug a new garden for me.. she’s cool like that).   I had a blog all planned out about Etsy stuff.. when I looked through a photo album titled “SPRING” and saw these photos I took last year.

These are my butterfly bushes, that I THINK I planted too close to the house.

I didn’t realize they would get SO large and in the next year they

might overtake the area they are in!.

When I bought them I purchased this fuchsia colored one..

and this dark purple one.  I was thinking about buying a few more

to put closer to the driveway.  I checked out eBay and they have 149

butterfly bushes up for sale.  Have you ever bought plants on eBay?

(send me a note or comment..I’d like to know your experience)

Now that I think about it.. it would be just like buying plants through

a mail order catalog..right?   Happy Spring!

How I know it’s Spring in Kansas

Do you know how I know it's spring in Kansas?

BABY COWS! How cute is this? A little chocolate cow!

I should let you know that even though I live on 40 acres, I don't have any farm animals. I am truly a city girl, and I am still amazed at the baby cows.

These cows would be my neighbors.. and they live in the field next to mine.  So sometimes the kids and I like to go check them out. To me it looks like the brown momma cow is saying "What are you looking at?".


I think she's saying "your kids look pretty goofy to me".


This is one brave baby cow.. it was only about 5 feet from me.

This momma cow was fine.. until she figured out I was around..


I think I freaked this cow out.. For all I've done towards being a bad mother.. I've never done this… (kinda gross but funny huh?)
