A foggy October morning

October 3, 2019 at 7:15 a.m. it was 72 Degrees with 94% Humidity in Manvel, Texas.

The humidity has been high all week long and the temperatures get around 95 degrees during the day.

I love the fog and its mystery so naturally my camera and I went outdoors to take a few pics.

Rusted wire and fence post

Fence post and rusted wire can be quite interesting to photograph.

Every time I shoot fences and wire I see something different than I did before. For me they never get boring.

For me, fence post and rusted wire define country living in Texas.

The little calf

This is one of the two calves next door to us

They have grown so much in the last 2 1/2 weeks.

I was able to get out and slosh through the muddy pasture in my rubber boots and get a few good pictures.

The other calf was not interested in getting his picture taken this one seemed quite curious.

These two pics are the same but they are edited differently as well as cropped differently.

I love the new crops like the first one.

One of the joys of living in the country is getting to enjoy the cows.

Three cows and a baby

My brother n law moved these heifers back next door to us.

I figured it was because they were about to calf and it looks like I was right.

The first one had a calf a week ago and another had one this past Sunday I have not gotten pics of that one yet.

I hope to get more pics soon in the mud using my rubber boots to tromp across the pasture lol.

Princess #2

Meet Princess #2, unfortunately, Princess # 1 had an accident and died we were all upset over that. Our 4-year-old twin granddaughters needed another princess. Funny thing is they were both white goats.

I love her eyes they remind me of a deer. She is spotted and its so cute. Look at her tummy lol.

She was dancing in a circle to eat the tree limbs and I was able to grab a few cute shots of her. I have no idea why they go nuts over cypress trees but they do.

The farm is continually growing. They are picking up a bred Jersey Milk Cow full size and a Minature Hereford bull this weekend. More pics to come in the next week or so.

Finally

After a 3-week delay finally our daughter and her husband signed papers on their house this past Friday.

This was not a delay on their part it was actually a few complications that the title company did not find until the day before the first signing date. Let’s just say someone was not doing their job and then went on vacation.

The kids knew nothing about the house so it was a total surprise to them. Andrew had 3 things on his wish list for a house that was that it have stairs, a fireplace and a pond he got all 3 so he was so excited.

Karina seemed to turn into an instant real estate agent when we went there later that day. Want to see mine and sissy’s room, my bathroom, Andrew and Adrian’s room. Want to see the kitchen, my backyard the pond lol. She wanted us to see it all right then and it was a fast room to room tour. No dip dallying that’s for sure.

All four kids are sleeping great in the new house. Since the little one was pretty picky about where he slept were all excited he is sleeping at night and taking his naps.

There is a lot of work to be done. Lots of fences and pens to be built for goats, dogs, and chickens.
The pond will be fenced off from the kids, the house will be fenced off from the road even though it sits back about 2 acres back from the road. There will be a goat pen and a dog pen. Then there will be a chicken coop.

I am so glad they finally have their dream home in the country on land where they can have their little farm with animals and a garden.

Country landscape

This was a picture I took a few years ago.

If you look closely the windmill is missing some of its blades this was probably caused by high winds at some point or it could just be from old age.

The windmill was not turning and there was no water in the trough.

The barn on the right hand side has tin falling off of it. Some of the trees have lost their leaves. The grass in the pasture is mostly dead you can tell this picture was taken in the fall in Texas.

There were no cows in this pasture and it did not look like there had been any there for a good while.

Sometimes I wonder what the story was of this old cow pasture and why was it not being used anymore.

The sky was cloudy and it was about to rain but there was just something about the scene itself that caught my attention. I had my husband pull over so I could take a few pictures.

Scenes like this remind me of good old country life when times were simpler and no one was in hurry to get somewhere.
