Every month now, as the 21st approaches, my deadline for the Hoegger blog……I decide on a topic…then I have to listen to myself tell me that I don’t know enough about that topic to write a blog….an expert is needed. Then I tell myself….it’s only 800-1000 words. Wouldn’t do any good to have an expert with that amount of words. And that always calms me down. Right about on pace with the last 2, timing wise that is….I have just completed the February blog and have already edited it to my satisfaction….lol, for the moment. The reason I tell you this is to let you know that however confident I become…..I still doubt myself. I tell you this in case you do too. So I can be a mirror. It’s quite an honor for me to do this and I take it seriously. I don’t wanna let anyone down, even myself. When I complete it….it’s a surreal sense of satisfaction. A knowing that people will read it and that does something to a writers soul. A writers soul is fragile but unstoppable. Rather contradictory…but contrary is the way of a lot of writers, eh?
Ye know, I’ve never thought about the weather as being soft and hard, but I just did. Extreme cold or hot…..are hard. In the middle ground areas…..are soft. Right now, some parts of the planet are hard and some are soft. Australia…hard. At the moment, here in my world…soft. In my friend Mea’s world…..cold, hard. Ya…I’m odd. A few days ago…with all the rain?….hard. Isn’t it fascinating that something so simple as the weather…..could mean whether our life is soft or hard. Life is so funny. So quirky, so on friggin purpose. See, that’s where my question about thought power comes in….aren’t they at odds? Thought power and friggin on purpose? Speaking of on purpose….I believe I’m supposed to say that although I’m approaching a year of blogging in just a few months, and am writing a blog for a magazine as well…..I still only have about 25 – 30 readers on any given day. It’s like I’m stuck there. Yuk!!! Like I said….a writers soul is fragile. Well….it’s bedtime for bonzo here….2:17am =10=1- beginnings.
Texas weather. Jeesh. Yesterday it was warm and last night I nearly shivered to death, lol, while playing ball with Blue at 2:30am. Forecast has us in the 30’s the rest of the week….for the low. Cold for birthing….yuk. Speaking of yuk…….technology and I do NOT get along well. I’ve been asked to caption my photos for the Hoegger Blog……I think I just did it. Hope it works. My friend Mea has agreed to allow me to use a photo of one of her Peacock goats, so pretty. I used photoscape software to add the caption cuz I couldn’t figure it out in WORD. So that’s one photo decided upon and captioned….hehe, two more to go cuz it seems as if 3 is the norm that they place in my blog. Also….just so you’ll know…..I still don’t have the ability to comment there. Truly, I’m not ignoring you…..I haven’t missed a comment on this here blog since I started last spring. I thought it was fixed and did a happy dance when I was able to respond to Mea’s comment in the January blog…..but alas, my comment has disappeared. Guess I better tell Katy. Ooh…..speaking of that blog…..they added a Pin It button and oh my goodness….I’ve been pinned! 8 times!!! Lol, not entirely sure what that means but I think it’s good!?!
Hubby has gone to the convenience store for diesel for the Zen buggy so we can go looking again. Told him I needed some closure, so it looks like I’m headed into the deep woods again. I know…..I just need to know more. Well, he’s back…..so off I go into the thick yonder. I’ll be wearing my rubber boots for the mud and snakes!!! Ok. We’re back. We drove all the large paths and got out many times to wander down small paths. Drove the perimeter and the middle and walked on foot round and about. We followed hoof prints and berry piles and got slammed by yaupon and thorn bushes a plenty. We covered as much territory as one can. Nothing. Not a hint. When we came back around, the cows and horses found us and what a scene that was when we took off and they all took off too! We were all flying across the pasture together! Haha, who knew it would be fun? And of course, I was having a blast snapping photos as fast as I could, not knowing if they would turn out blurry…and not caring. Yes….another adventure in the world of YeeHaw. The bottomline of todays adventure is this…..we have closure. The only closure we’re likely to get. The closure is…..we will never find that goat. The search is over and body or no body….Damey is no more.
Bundled up again and went to feed the critters. Yoki was out….nearly an everyday occasion cuz I keep forgetting to bring wire down there. Had my daily dose of Star play…..little squishy’s horns are seriously coming in now. She has so much fun now jumping on and off of me. I’m her rock. Ahhh, for the day when I finally get hubby to move me some huge boulders so the goats can climb. Sigh…been waiting awhile…years while. In the meantime….I do indeed make a pretty snazzy rock for all the little squishy’s to learn on. Well……once again, we come to that parting of the ways…..it’s dinnertime!!!! Lol, signing off at YeeHaw Ranch.
