Flossy and Momma

Our little baby is growing. She is so much fun. Getting a little better about nibbling or should I say biting. We gently push her nose away and tell her no. But when she puts those ears back and takes off you better watch for the heels. She loves to chase the dog and the dog has learned to make quick turns to throw her off. Flossy is pretty fast. Wish I could figure out how to most a video of her running. Got her little hooves trimmed yesterday for the first time. Of course had to be held down. Something else she will have to learn. We try to pick up her feet frequently to get her used to it. But she is just a baby yet, still nursing. Posted by Picasa

The Train

I stand on the tracks, looking into the darkness. Then I feel it coming. I can feel the vibration of the steel on the tracks and now I hear the sound. I can see the light flashing with warning and danger that is coming straight at me. I stand on the tracks paralyzed, my heart starts to pound faster and I cannot move. At last the train is upon me and still I can not move and it steams right over me. I throw back the covers to release the heat. That is what a hot flash is like to me.

Those interested need to read the Nov. issue of More Mag. There are 2 good articles in the Body and Mind section. One called Are "natural" hormones safer? And the next is "This is your brain on menopause". Very interesting reading.
I have just started on the bio-identical hormone touted by Suzanne Summers. They are compounded by the pharmacy with specific doses of 4 different hormones. Each can be adjusted to meet individual needs. Well I have tried everything else so why not.

quote of Deepok Chopra

Today I will commit myself to detachment. I will allow myself and those around me the freedom to be as they are. I will not rigidly impose my idea of how things should be. I will not force solutions to problems, thereby creating new problems. I will participate in everything with detachment involvement.

THIS IS FOR ALL OF US WHO WANT TO FIX THINGS FOR EVRYONE ELSE. (not that I know any one like this)

my S#*t Cactus

This is a cactus that a friend in Nv. gave me a start of a year or so ago. She called it a s#*t cactus, because when it blooms the bloom really smells bad. Well now I can vouch for that. It took a couple weeks to form the bloom, the pod was about the size of a grapefruit. As you can see from the ruler I placed by the bloom it is at least 12 in. across. Really quite pretty and has a rubbery texture. Don't know how long it will last. Smelled worse the first day. Moved it to an out of the way place. Haven't checked to see if it still smells so bad. Would like to move it back to the living room. Anyone know what kind of plant this is? I just liked the unusual way it grows. But the blooms are something else, sort of alien!! Posted by Picasa

go to this site As I am a huge fan of Deepak Chopra, I found his site, It is called IntentBlog and has posts by Chopra and many others. I find it a wonderful place to go to read stuff that makes me feel good as a human being, and feel that there is hope for the human race. I got to meet Deepak Chopra in person at the prison where I used to work. He had been doing a lecture in Reno and our Dr. at the prison talked him into doing a mini workshop for the inmates. Of course I attended and really enjoyed it. I especially liked his theory that we are really all one. He said that as we live and breath we give off many cells a day and as we breath in we are actually breathing in "other people" and makeing their cells a part of us. Thus making us all really one. He did a demonstration on meditation. I have several of his books and now want to go back and re read them. So if anyone reads this and has time, go to his site, there are many links that can keep a person busy for days. Maybe it will help us understand a little of what life is really about and why we are here in the first place.

Where do bad chickens go?

Rocky has been a baaaaaaaaaad boy!! So he is locked up in chicken jail for now. We have Rocky and 7 hens and 1 lonesome guiney {name is Guiney Gumbo}. Gumbo has attached herself to the chickens and they have all gotten alone OK. That is till yesterday. Rocky started chasing Gumbo. Then it got to be mean, with Rocky hanging onto Gumbo and dragging her down till they were both exhausted. So the sherif,{that would be my hubby} came along and arrested Rocky and now he is in jail. Any one want a real pretty ornry rooster??? Posted by Picasa

Mother/daughter road trips have to be the bestest medicine in the world.

A time to talk about the rest of the family, finding their faults and yet being glad they belong to you.

Reliving fun times and sad times.

A time of letting go and hanging on.

A sharing of beliefs and finding a common thread.

Laughter till you cry.

Finding the beauty around us.

Being glad that you have a daughter.

Feeling sorry for the stuff that makes life hard for others.

Wanting to kiss the boo boo and make it all OK.

Installing Love

Tech Support: Yes, . How can I help you?

Customer: Well, after much consideration, I've decided to install Love. Can you guide me through the process?

Tech Support: Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?

Customer: Well, I'm not very technical, but I think I'm ready. What do I do first?

Tech Support: The first step is to open your Heart. Have you located your Heart?

Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to install Love while they are running?

Tech Support: What programs are running ?

Customer: Let's see, I have Past Hurt, Low Self-Esteem, Grudge and Resentment running right now.

Tech Support: No problem, Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory but it will no longer disrupt other programs. Love will eventually override Low Self-Esteem with a module of its own called High Self-Esteem. However, you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment. Those programs prevent Love from being properly installed. Can you turn those off ?

Customer: I don't know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?

Tech Support: With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have been completely erased.

Customer: Okay, done! Love has started installing itself. Is that normal?

Tech Support: Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin connecting to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades.

Customer: Ooops! I have an error message already. It says, "Error - Program not run on external components." What should I do?

Tech Support: Don't worry. It means that the Love program is set up to run on Internal Hearts, but has not yet been run on your Heart. In non-technical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others.

Customer: So, what should I do?

Tech Support: Pull down Self-Acceptance; then click on the following files: Forgive-Self; Realize Your Worth; and Acknowledge your Limitations.

Customer: Okay, done.

Tech Support: Now, copy them to the "My Heart" directory. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming. Also, you need to delete Verbose Self-Criticism from all directories and empty your Recycle Bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.

Customer: Got it. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files. Smile is playing on my monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over My Heart. Is this normal?

Tech Support: Sometimes. For others it takes awhile, but eventually everything gets it at the proper time. So Love is installed and running. One more thing before we hang up. Love is Freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everyone you meet. They will in turn share it with others and return some cool modules back to you.

Customer: Thank you,

God/Tech Support: You're Welcome, Anytime.

My sunset

This was taken looking to the east from my yard. The sun was setting behind me and as you can see the timber is starting to change colors. Last nite the huge moon was coming up over these trees and that was awsome too. Posted by Picasa

Got our critters home!!

From left to right. Millie {who is most likely with child}, Hubby,{he is easy to spot huh?}, baby girl Flossy, her Mom Jennie. You can only see a tiny part of the horse's head, but will post on him seperately. They are so gentle and the dog was accepted with not problem. We were afraid that her being a strange dog they would run her out, but they let her walk around their feet, even the horse. And the chickens are in heaven as they mill around picking up any feed they drop. They had been on a pretty much dry lot, I mean dust dry, and eating grain and hay. They hardlly lifted their noses from the grass all day. Flossy was so funny learning how to eat grass. Her first efforts was to pull straight back on a piece of grass till it snapped off. After one day she has learned to crop it off with her little teeth. Oh, and little teeth, the gal who raised her was letting her suck on her fingers, thinking it was cute. NOT. So we are gently letting her know that teeth on people is a no no. We don't want a biter. Well enough for now. Just had to share this with the world. Posted by Picasa
