Welcome to my wild, wonderful, Wyoming life. I am a southern farm girl who grew up raising tobacco and showing horses. Then I found myself marrying a rancher. I walked into a world that is known by many, but truly lived by few. I taught school sixty miles away for eleven years. Then I decided to stay home with the kids and help on the ranch.
We raise Red Angus cattle, four very busy border collies (make that 5 now) and two adorable but unfortunately growing children ( Can I count my husband as a 3rd child). Just asking…
I love to cook, but hate to do dishes! I love a clean house, but hate to clean it. I love to ride horses, but enjoy it better in nice 70 degree weather with a slight breeze. I love to read, but my favorite genre is romance novels! (I know scandalous!)
Since retiring from teaching in May of 2012,I have taken up several hobbies. Quilting was fun and time-consuming. I made one very lovely quilt for my mother’s birthday and christmas gift.
Then my neighbor introduced me to crochet in the fall of 2012. Then in 2014 my mom pleaded with me to take up knitting as she had started it again and to say I am hooked is a mild understatement. I knit, but mostly I buy yarn! I love it. I could open a store! It is so addicting to try new patterns. Since I am not teaching my mind yearns for learning and this has taken its place.
My kids are growing fast and I am learning to enjoy my slow-paced lifestyle that only a few get to know and for that I thank God daily.
I hope to reach other modern ranch wives that are out there, living life in the middle of nowhere and enjoying it everyday!
