Ok, so…..there’s a few things I must get off my chest. I’m just gonna come clean and get it over with. I think I’m addicted to iced coffee. What do you call it when you can’t make it through the day without slurping on one? When you run out of “gas” and you automatically think…..iced coffee? When you feel sad or ticked off and you want an iced coffee to whip everything back into shape again?006 Yep…..I’m hooked. What in the world will I do when cold weather arrives? Who knows……I may just drink it all winter long. Or I’ll find another “hot concoction” of some sort. It’s called survival!010      Next on the list…….I was texting and driving…….after dark…….I know, I know….it’s against the law. But I was out in the pasture. Some big, bossy bovine walked right smack dab in front of me. Now, I wouldn’t have done any damage to the black beast of a cow……..but she would have done some serious damage to my “precious” gator. I looked up just in time to see a big, obese rear-end of a cow right in front of me. I gasped and slammed on the breaks. I felt like yelling…..”Get your 40 acres off the road”!! Needless to say, I didn’t finish the text. I kept my eyes on the road….or rather….the grass trail. So, the moral is…..don’t text and drive…….not even in the pasture. Bovines rule! I am a good driver…..most of the time.046.jpg        Last but not least…..I’m addicted to gardening. I told Earl this morning……I finally have a day to work in my flowerbeds. My true love! He did a double take…..the look on his face……I quickly corrected myself, and told him that of course, he always comes first. Hahaha What I’m trying to say…….gardening trumps milking cows…..feeding calves…..scraping cow poop…..working cattle……the list goes on forever. So today is my day. I better get busy. I’ve got a lot of ground to cover before the next “milking time” rolls around. I’ll let you know how it all works out……………..Carol
