Rainy day mushrooms

When it rains we always get lots of mushrooms growing in the yard and the pasture.

We had a fairy ring of a bunch of mushrooms in the pasture and some scattered mushrooms in the yard and pasture.

Mushrooms come in all shapes and sizes and some have more texture than others.

I find them intriguing to get pictures of because you really want to show off the definition of them to capture their true beauty.

Mushrooms can be quite photogenic if given the chance.

Through the piney woods

Our daughter her husband and their four children just moved to East Texas yesterday.

The house they had lived in for the last 4 years sold the first week it was on the market and they needed more property. They decided East Texas might just be the place and they found 25 acres to purchase.

The first thing they had to do was some clearing but they hired that done. Then they wanted the mulching people with their machines to cut some trails through the woods for them all to enjoy. I only went down one trail but it was truly amazing. They are naming the trails and I believe this one is Piney Trail.

I have always loved the woods, trails, wildlife and nature so this type property is right up my ally.

They will be living about 1 1/2 hours from us and they are very close to Lake Livingston which they will all love its a great fishing lake. It was my dads favorite fishing lake when we were kids.

They are already looking at side by side ATV’s to make getting around and working on the property easier.

Our oldest grandson Andrew who is 10 years old is picking us out a location for a weekend house in the woods. He has it figured out I need a few sweetgum trees to attract the wildlife.

They have game cameras set up and have seen deer, wild hog and racoons. One racoon was investigating the camera.

Our grandkids will have lots of great adventures in these woods and are already planning club houses and lookout towers. I think they need some Ninja warrior obstacle course equipment including a zip line.

Life

Every time we turn around something in our world is changing.

As we get older we like changes less and less.

Our youngest daughter Jeanelle her husband David and their 4 kids just bought 25 acres near Livingston, Texas.

They will be putting their house on the market in the next six weeks and moving 1 1/2 hours away from us.

The good news is David will still be working in and around Houston so the kids can always hitch a ride to our house.

This is a dream of there’s to have a big piece of property for the kids to run around and explore. Making trails in the piney woods will be great fun for them. This is great for the dogs and the cows which are both in need of more room.

They have wanted a barndominium for a very long time and this is the chance to get one. Their bid was excepted on the land, the earnest money is paid the survey is happening this week. Hopefully they will do closing in the next 30days.

In case you are wondering what a barndominium is its a metal type building on a slab but the shapes vary and some look just like a house but are built out of metal.

As soon as the closing is completed they will get the well, septic and electricity installed before they head that direction.

They are on the waiting list to build a barndominium it seems there is a 12 week wait for them to start. This involves a deposit to hold it at the current price.

Our daughter suggested we move there. The housing market is very hot right now in our area so its a good time to sell.

We help out with my mother n law who is 92 years old so we can not move away from here full time. We share this responsibility with one of my brother n laws and sister n law. It works out good sharing this responsibility but there are 3 sons and only two sons and their wives are sharing this responsibility.

We have not ruled out building a weekend house I like the houses with lots of tall windows in the woods. I would have great places to photograph and there would be much more wildlife to see. I love winding paths in the woods with tall trees and nature right beside you.

Life is full of changes we learn to adapt, change and move forward.
