Alright, Alright, Alright….

Ok, so the title doesn’t have anything to do with the post. I watched Dazed and Confused last night and Matthew McConaughey said it. Love him. So. Much.

I digress.

I’m sitting here on my back porch at 4:47p, still in my pajamas, (yes today I suck at adulting) drinking a glass of wine and talking to Paul as he prepares for his trip to Sydney to have his Fiance Visa interview. *happy dance* I’m so anxious for this to be over and Paul to be with me!

As I was scouring the internet not too long ago, I found a blog called 5 Acres & A Dream written by Leigh Tate. In a nutshell, she’s living my dream. She’s who I want to be when I grow up. I just ordered her book today and am SO SO SO SO excited to read it. Her blog is amazing and you HAVE to check it out. Here’s a link to it. http://www.5acresandadream.com/ She has no idea who I am. If you do meander over there please tell her I sent you, she’s a celebrity in my mind.

She and her husband have found a home, property and restored it lovingly to their own little homestead complete with gardens, critters and most recently a 1500 water catchment tank. <– How exciting is THAT?!

I have a beautiful place now. A sweet 1.5ac in the suburbs of Houston. Unfortunately, a lot of it seems a unusable because of the septic system. It’s a leach field. If you have any ideas on how to use this area of land please, do tell! But it’s definitely not big enough for my dreams. Need to get on the ball and start developing a proper plan.

Oh how I love Texas sunsets, especially when it’s a perfect 76f with a lovely breeze. 🙂

In case you’re wondering what the little clear spot is in the middle of the wall on my porch, it’s what I call a Winston Window. He’s too fat and lazy to be able to jump up on the ledge to see out and he’s not tall enough so…there it is. An epic symbol of how I spoil my animals.

Till next time!

Alright, Alright, Alright….

So much for simplicity…

I know, I know it’s been a ridiculous six months. I haven’t written anything! Lots has changed, lots hasn’t. The things that have changed have kinda thrown me off track. Kinda…who am I kidding, Totally. Totally is the proper word. I’m TOTALLY off track.

I’m still super excited about the co-op, but that was put on hold until Paul gets here to help me because my actual job is too demanding. Paul and I have made our engagement official on Facebook so the -ish has dropped off of fiance! I’m so thrilled to marry that man! Paul’s interview for his K-1 fiance visa is at 9:45a on Tuesday (4:45p on Monday our time) *fingers crossed*. Then the move planning can begin for him.

My HUGE corporate conversion project is over, so that has slowed down for me a little bit. There was a car accident thrown in there. My 15 year old son has moved in with me for now (with much narcissistic baby daddy drama baggage brought with him).  My father is in the process of moving here to Texas to live on my property with all of us. How does a girl go from living alone to having 3 men from 3 very different parts of the world/country move in with her? *Shrugs* Who knows. So here we are…

I need a drink. Now. A strong drink.

I promise I’ll do better at writing more, I need to. It’s self-help and motivation all at the same time. But for now, I need to start planning to build a pepper bed for Brian (my son) so he can get his Carolina Reapers, Scorpion peppers and Devil’s tongue peppers ready to grow. Bring on the burning bum.

Till next time!
