Words Fail

 We've been home on the ranch almost 11 days and now it is time to head south.  I feel  wordless and empty of any blogging material. How did I ever keep this this blog going? 

 Time home was wonderful though.

 Bouncing Betty ( our Dodge truck ) was back in business after getting a re-built engine.  OUCH, that bill sure hurt.
 I just love these shadow shots, randomly inserted into my posts.  Like I said, I really don't have anything to say. 
We fed cows and I tried to make sure that they were all accounted for.

Macho helped.

The cherry tree is making buds.  Exciting stuff.  I planted more roses and lavender for spring.  And dug up weeds.  Lots more of those to go.

I loved on and rode on my horses. 

 And spent way too much time working on paper work and taxes.

We head south again and are hopeful that we will be spending less time with my folks.  They are doing well and the help that was hired is working out.  Taking care of one's parents is a new and life altering experience.  We started out full of vision and yes, a little pride, that we could do this for them, but have discovered that we had a lot to learn.  It is often easy to help someone who appreciates it, but much more difficult when your help is not.  But I think the help, the love is still valuable.  For love does cover a multitude of sins.
