Country living…

Someone asked me why we decided to move to Montana…

Moving from California is either a good thing or a crazy thing considering the person. Some people say, “why would you move here,” usually with a ghastly surprise. Others usually people born in Montana, “why did you California people have to come to our Montana.”

Usually my answer comes to main point of, I wanted to give me children a different life. Growing up playing in mud, running wild.

My mama gave me a great childhood, I managed to play in mud and be a crazy child…but now trying to let your baby run wild in California you have to keep an eye on them. Or have a tall fence… Believe me you still have to watch your babies in Montana, but you feel a sense of release, like you have a bit more trust with your neighbors.

At this moment I’m sitting in the truck waiting for my baby to awaken. She is taking her afternoon nap. My husband is working on cutting some wood for future projects. We are at our friends house a few miles outside of town. It’s peaceful here. To most people the thought of sitting in a car waiting for a baby to wake up seems boring or wasteful of a day. But looking out the truck window I have a wonderful view. My baby is sleeping and I’m listening to country music. It’s a peaceful afternoon.

Enjoy you weekend no matter where you are. There is always a way to see the happiness wherever you are. ❤️

Self conscious…

Being called out for one of your past selfs actions, can hit you and make you feel so self conscious. It’s amazing I thought as I grew up I wouldn’t get embarrassed as much…mostly because having a baby changes you.

But still having someone you love make-fun of something you did before, makes your heart hurt. I know it wasn’t on purpose and the person meant to be funny but I’ve always been a self conscious person. I’m not spontaneous, I can’t be…especially now as the thing I was teased about was something I did spontaneously. It makes you think back through your life and question everything else.

Writing helps me deal with my problems or feelings, and move past them. It’s not a big thing it’s just something small…but it still gets me.

So I guess…don’t be afraid to be spontaneous. It terrifies me, but I’ll teach my daughter to be…she’ll learn the awesomeness of planning, but I hope she will not be as self conscious…being self conscious 90% of the time is not the greatest way to live. But I make do, because that’s how I am and I want to be just me.

Happy Tuesday, just because every day should be a happy day…😊

My cover photo ‘Facebook picture’ didn’t have someone’s name, just something I found.

Visiting home.

It’s strange, that I live in another state now but that I still consider my mom’s house home…it’s a different kind of home. It has so many memories and my family is there. No matter what was going on we would all meet at mama’s and hang out. ❤️ I miss that so much!!

But we are on our way to see my family!! I’m so excited!!

But I’m also excited for my siblings to meet my daughter! She is 11 weeks today…and we are traveling south. The baby is behaving really well, we have a very well behaved baby. 😎

They will finally get to determined whether she is or not. I’m excited for my nephews to meet her. Especially the youngest because now there is a little person smaller than him.

Stopping in Utah, then we are coming home tomorrow!❤️

Oh Baby…

Having a baby has been very interesting. I love her deeply, the sweet little giggles she does are priceless. I love her kisses when she gives me them on my cheek. I love it when she smiles so much that it takes up half of her face. She such a sweet sweet.❤️

But I do miss my sleep. Which makes me think of this topic…There of been many ways to lose weight…

Some people of use the machines that shake you until all your chub is confined into your stomach. There are now things that can freeze your chub so that it shrinks your stomach. I think that getting your tummy kicked 100 times throughout the night by tiny baby feet should also help get rid of your tummy chub. I think it’s only fair…

Even still I love her. She makes my night interesting. Like right now we are wide-awake at 10:46 PM and I don’t tthink we’ll be going to sleep for probably a couple more hours. But again she is my sweet sweet. ❤️

Oh no she spitting up…

Up In A Tree

Once there was a little family that lived in a marvelous tree. The tree grew as tall as the mountains, or so it would seem.

The family was small but mighty; as Ma and Pa watched their baby grow and grow. The child would run up the trunk and down the branches. Jumping from leaf to other leaves.

One day the family noticed a new sort of leaf growing on their beloved home branch. It was round and was a sunset color. It was so still; so much so that they assumed it must not be alive. Pa thought it looked like a glorious new home for his family.

They journeyed up the branch to the strange new form. Pa tapped it, shook it, screamed and yelled at it; but there was no response. So he poked it with a stick and a squirt of juice flew out at him in the eye. Pa yelped and hid behind Ma. He thought he had injured it and it would retaliate and attack him.

Ma rolled her eyes and tasted the juice that now trickled down Pa’s face. Ma’s face radiated with happiness and delight. Pa, Ma, and child went closer to the form and put their mouths into the punctured opening. Sweet delicious juice flowed into their mouths. So all three took a side and ate their way into their new home.

The sweet juice took over their minds and bodies and made them extremely tired. Pa, Ma, and child all fell asleep in their nestled new home. Sweet, sweet slumber.

Well of course I had no knowledge of this happy little family of worms living in an apple, I so desired when I went outside. I looked up in our glorious tree and saw a delicious ripe apple waiting for me. I climbed the great ladder and I plucked it from the branch. I also bragged to my husband about finding it and not sharing. I dashed inside to wash and enjoy my greatest discovery.

Instead I cut through the apple and there sat three separate worms. Two long ones and a little baby one. Thankfully I didn’t cut through one of them or I would have given up apples for a while. Instead of just throwing the apple out, I dug the worms out of the apple and put them in our front yard where we need more worms. I also had to go outside and tell my husband what had happened, he of course laughed.

Hopefully today I can find an apple on the tree and no worms will be living inside. This time I’ll share with the husband because maybe my luck will be better.

Enjoy your weekend!! ❤️ Maybe have an apple.
