    I had an inspiring day at church. We visited one in our area that had a bunch of mission work projects coming up in the new year. I really enjoyed seeing what they had accomplished and the testimonies were great. We are going to list our house in Southern CA. I am hoping it sells and then I will be debt free. My husband will probably go on a mission trip to Cambodia. One of his workmates came from the area of the killing fields and he has wanted to do something to help Cambodia ever since. I am ...

  2. A week on the ranch (January 31 - February 6, 2011)

    by , 02-06-2011 at 09:00 PM
    I'll have to keep this entry short because I'm on the road and typing on my iPhone.

    This week marked the end of January. Always sad to see the months slip away from me. I did review my resolutions at the end of the month, and I am staying relatively true to them.

    The weather was beautiful all week and promised to remain so into the coming week. I left for Memphis, TN, on Saturday, by way of an overnight in Phoenix, AZ, so I didn't get to enjoy the weekend, but when I ...

  4. Road Map for the Day - February 5, 2011

    by , 02-05-2011 at 09:40 AM
    Off to Tennessee today, so this morning will be all about getting packed and getting the animals squared away before I go. After that, I'm leaving on a jet plane, and the rest of the day will be spent either in the air, or driving, then check into my hotel and get my notes ready for work tomorrow.

    5:30p - The best-laid plans and all that. Stuck in AZ tonight due to a screw-up on U.S. Airway's part. Back in the air tomorrow morning!

    I did a quick walk-through of all the fruit trees and pruned what needed pruning. Everything seems to be holding up, although it is hard to tell this time of year what is dormant and what is dead!!

    I found a new source of fertilizer and supplements, just down the road from me. About a year ago, my ...
