Cooking Breakfast Should Include Hazardous Duty Pay!

by Texas Homesteader ~

We typically don’t eat breakfast so enjoying it is a special occasion indeed. Usually either when we’re on a vacation or every year for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day when our tradition dictates that the honoree get homemade breakfast in bed.

I typically opt for fresh fruit, yogurt and homemade pancakes. RancherMan always (and I mean ALWAYS) requests bacon, fried eggs, jalapeno/cheese biscuits and gravy.

But as I crept around the house quietly to keep from waking him as I prepared his honoree breakfast, it almost seemed like a comedy. How in the world did our grandmothers do it??!!

I treated RancherMan to a hearty breakfast of Homemade biscuits, eggs, bacon and gravy. Good grief - how did our grandmothers do it?? #TexasHomesteader

Audio/Visual Advertising Bombardment

by Texas Homesteader

Is it just me, or has the audio level of the advertising sector gotten crazy? 

Picture this: You’re cuddled on the couch watching a romantic movie with your Honey. And after only about 10-15 minutes of movie entertainment it’s time for the station to take an advertising break.

Has anyone else ever noticed the difference in volume level between that movie and a commercial for, say, a car dealership? The movie is at a comfortable listening level but the screaming salesman & flashing BUY NOW of the commercial is crazy.

RancherMan & I both race for the MUTE button on the remote control. It wouldn’t be so bad if they would just talk about their product. But it’s the loud way in which they do so that drives me bonkers.

Has the advertising sector gone completely crazy? Motion-activated audio/visual screens blaring at grocery stores, gas stations and more #TexasHomesteader

Waiting for Baby

One of our cows is due to deliver her calf next Monday.  It’s always exciting when you’re expecting a calf but if you’re using the A.I. procedure you know the exact day that cow was bred and even the exact number of gestation days for that particular cow.  For me it makes the waiting game all the more nail biting because I’ve known this blessed event is coming since just 28 days after her breeding.

Using A.I. we know exactly when our cow was bred, and when that calve will be born. Our cow is almost ready to calve! #TexasHomesteader

Every day we make a round through the pastures, always including a thorough  inspection of our girls and calves.  Does everyone look good?  Is everyone accounted for?  Are all the calves bouncing & happy?  Our herd is used to our presence and we’re allowed to come close to any of them without anyone becoming alarmed.  If they’re laying down they don’t even bother getting up – to them I’m just one of the girls!  Although it’s labor intensive to be in each cow’s physical presence so often, a gentle herd is worth all the work necessary to maintain it.
