The End of the Fence

Jason and I had a small moment of unsatisfying joy on Saturday. We were finished rebuilding the fence and tearing down the old fence. For those who have missed this story you can click here for the background.  To make a long story short we have six miles of fence on the farm. Maury Fence Company in Columbia, Tennessee built the first mile. I am thankful every day they only built the first mile. Within fours years of it being built, the mile of fence built by Maury Fence Company started falling over. I don’t mean a few sagging...

Snow Frenzy

The big news in middle Tennessee yesterday was that it snowed. It didn’t last long and melted it even more quickly, but white stuff fell from the sky. Jason and I happened to be at Carter’s school when the snow started. We spent a couple of hours, along with another parent, helping his teacher out by prepping gingerbread houses for the  kids in her class to decorate. Well, technically they are graham cracker houses.  We glued graham crackers onto milk cartons and the kids will decorate them tomorrow. Jason outpaced me making graham cracker houses at a 2 to...

Blinking Lights and a Code Red

I feel like Jason and I should have some kind of infamy at this point due to all of the trouble we have with Christmas decorations. I recently posted about the continuing saga of the deer family. For any who are wondering I am still strongly considering getting Cousin Eddie his RV. I just don’t know that we need any more problems from decor. This is us, and it won’t be as simple as take the RV out of the box, plug it in, and watch it light up. On the Saturday after Thanksgiving we decided it was time...

The Deer Family Returns

You might recall reading about the Deer Family on the blog last year. Last September, after two years of displaying all of his avoidance skills, Jason finally gave in to Carter’s wishes and purchased the light-up deer family from Costco. To say that Jason didn’t want the deer family would be an understatement, and you can read about all of Jason’s reasons to not own the deer family, as well as the end of Jason’s resistance, in this blog post. Eventually Jason had to break down and assemble the deer family. This happened with minimal fuss as these types...

Fencing, Fire Ants and Boxer Shorts

Jason and I are once again working on one of our least favorite projects, rebuilding the mile of fence that Maury Fence Company built for us. For those who have missed my many posts complaining about this problem here is the short version. We have six miles of fencing on the farm, the majority of it being four board wood fence. Maury Fence Company built the first mile, and thankfully ONLY the first mile. Only four years after they built the fence a majority of the posts started to fail. The boards were fine, the posts were rotting, some...

Amish Visitor

When I came rushing out of the house Monday afternoon to pick Carter up from school I stopped dead in my tracks when I realized an Amish buggy was parked behind my truck.  The driver was walking toward me and a very polite Amish man introduced himself and asked if any of our horses were for sale. I attempted to explain to him that all of the horses were retired and were not for sale. I apologized profusely as I explained to him that I was running a few minutes late to pick up my son and that unfortunately...

Caddyshack

A few weeks ago Jason told me that he saw a huge groundhog getting into the feed at our back barn. We knew something had been getting in the feed, and since it seemed to so nimbly remove the snap on lids to the feed cans we assumed it was a raccoon. Jason was convinced the groundhog was getting into our feed as he kept telling me how big it was. Frankly, I didn’t believe him. I believed that he saw the groundhog, I just didn’t believe it could be THAT big. About a week later a representative from...
