Been Missing so long forgot to post a giveaway

What a Crazy time for me
I have had MAJOR internet issues, it all began with the weather
*And YES there is a Giveaway at the bottom of this post*


I abused my broadband usage and had to make that call to get extra
Only then it did not work, due to more weather
*how did I abuse it? watching the live radar during storms!*

You see we are Flooded here
(well the lake is we are on high ground)
High enough it won't reach us, but regardless it is a mess 
There are trees in the top of this photo that are normally where
you would park at to fish!
We have had over a foot of a rain since the first of May
And more is on the way? 


Lake Texoma is a HUGE lake and it is amazing at just how much water 
there is, Marina's, boat ramps, Camp grounds all flooded
Memorial day weekend will not be a good Holiday for those 
coming to the lake, and apparently by the 4th of July 
it will still not be back to normal enough for business's to be open
maybe some but not all, the clean up will take a long time
from this flood !

I apologize for shipping orders late, could not get online to
print labels, it was a mess for me!

So for this month I will giveaway an Americana Prairie Doll

Wild Weekend

What a Wild few days of Weather we have had here
Internet on and off so I am shipping boxes today !

I am Happy to announce the Sun in out this morning
it is Chilly but I will take those cooler temps to see the 

SUNSHINE


This is one of the Rivers in Oklahoma that runs into our lake
and it is Rushing and Rising
Our Lake that was below normal for the past few years
is well above Normal now? 

CRAZY

The  Mesonet reading says one of the towns close to us
*since apparently they do not read that for us?*
has had almost 12 inches of rainfall in 10 days !!

Trust me when I say it is noticeable 
everything is saturated around here :)

They are saying it will be Sunny here today and tomorrow
with rain back in the forecast by Wednesday *frown*
Yes I am ready for rain to stay away for awhile

But come summer time everyone will be wishing for some

Have a great Week

So Much Happening

Good Afternoon
Well I have certainly neglected my blog for a week

Been watching weather daily?
Oklahoma has had some horrific storms this week
More to come today and tomorrow


Things are a Muddy Mess


We do not have a Rooster and this old gals has been
sitting, so a Neighbor brought some eggs over last night
And she was like all thrilled to have a bunch to set on!
Stuck my head in the hatch of the coop this morning
and she is now sitting facing the door so I can not take the eggs away
OH my the Noise she made at me this morning
MEAN ole HEN :)
We shall see in 21 days, if she hatches them out
He will take them back to his place to a special coop he has for them
But once a couple get a bit larger I will be adding to my little family


Really ashamed to share this, they tore the skirting off the bottom
When an HUGE and I mean Big old snake got under our building
last summer. I was ok with it because the bottom will be skirted
in cedar siding. And it is such a muddy mess right now.
If the rain would let up I will power wash her and 
I will paint, my building will be a light tan color, like our house trim
and the trim on the building will be in the red like our house is

The front barn style doors will be framed in and a regular
house door will be hung with a large window
The other side has a window on the side of it but it is under a lean too
And will house my window air unit

   
About three years ago I got all excited to get this job done
I have been patient along time now *sigh*
But proudly enough they have emptied it out
And if this wonderful weather will corporate with us
they will begin finishing out the inside
It may be small only 10 foot by 20 foot but it will be a 
guest room / studio for me, not sure I will work in it. 
But it will get all this abundance of supplies out of my tiny house

The loft part will be taken down and the ceiling partially dropped
so I can hang Nice lights in it, I will share when the progress begins 


As always I have current giveaways going on
The birds can be signed up for On my Facebook Page



Have a Wonderful Weekend
