Spring is in the air

Today is the first day of spring and pink is such a great color.

Our azaleas started blooming about two weeks ago and they have been stunning this year. Normally the March winds blow off all the blooms but that did not happen this time so we have really gotten to enjoy them.

Happy Spring everyone.


Clover and bees

When we had the hurricane last year the planes were so busy spraying for mosquitos that the spray killed many bee hives.

These pictures are of the clover in our pasture and I only saw two honey bees when I was out there. I am sure there are more but I use to lay down in the grass and have them all around me.

Bees are very important to us and our environment. The way we contribute is letting the pasture grow up with clover the honey bees love the clover. I hope to see more bees in the future.


First babies born on the farm

The first picture is the mama goat before she had the babies.

These are the first babies born on the Shady Acres Rosharon farm.

These pics were taken at 2 days old. The mama goat was a first-time mom and she had a boy and a girl both healthy and happy.

They both have moon spots, the boy has waddles and they are both just adorable. Waddles are the things hanging from his neck his mom has one too and many people love these.

If you look back I bet you can guess which one the dad was lol.

The next baby goats should be born in May.



Second and Third Week

The second week of radiation went pretty good I was nowhere near as tired.

I had one painful day where it felt like a stabbing pain under my arm other than that all was good. I used an ice pack to help with this.

The third week has been good and I am a little more tired this week. I am trying to stay busy to keep my mind off of being less than halfway through with this.

Week 4 – 5 is when the burns generally start to happen next week will be my week 4.

Next week I have a bone scan for a baseline before I start the hormone blockers in 3 1/2 more weeks. I made sure to schedule it right after my radiation appointment you have to coordinate these things are you are back and forth all the time.

I ordered myself the prettiest necklace for breast cancer. My sister bought me a tee shirt that says “Rebel with a cause”.

She and I get together one time a week for shopping and we are truly enjoying ourselves. Sometimes we even go out to lunch and make a long day of it.

We might go to Resale stores, Tuesday Morning, Habitat Restore, Hotel Liquidators, Garage Sales or shop auctions online needless to say we have found some pretty cool stuff.

I won a beautiful dresser at an auction for $100.00 it was brand new 8 drawer white dresser it’s in my office to give me more storage. The retail of this dresser was $350.00.

My sister found me a plastic cow head I will be doing something with just not sure what way I want to go with it. Some people paint them wild colors, some use the silver or gold leafing on them, some glue fabric on them. Some people spray paint them there are just so many ways to go with this plastic cow head.

She also found me 3 of the wooden room service trays they are HUGE I used the liquid sander on them to remove the varnish and I have them primed. I know one for sure will be getting a liquid paint treatment I love the look of the paint and the cells. Of course, I had to buy the silicone and the Floetrol to do it with. Another craft to get into lol.

I am still fighting like a girl.

Miniature cows

Shady Acres Rosharon has two types of miniature cows.

There are two miniature Herefords and two Belted Galloway’s. The black and white Galloway Oreo is currently at the breeder being bred. Scamper is officially bred and due in late October to early November.

The one in the middle in the top picture is Scamper to her left is Cadilac and Darla is to the right.

We hand pick clover out of our pasture for her animals they all love it.

The cows are all super friendly and love to get attention.


Billy goats

Our daughter Jeanelle needed some pics of the farm animals for her blog and facebook page so this meant we needed a photo session.

These are the two Billy Goats who are named Gruff and Texas. They have each bred one female goat so there should be the first babies this week the next ones in June.

I will be posting more pics this week.
