The Rain Has Come!

Well we thought that this December was a little too warm for comfort. God does have a sense of humor. Now he gives us rain! And tons of it!

My husband and I took a drive around the valley to see the damage. There were many roads out and I can't leave my house without using Tom's truck. That's how bad it is.

This is a reminder that farmers do truly depend on the Lord for their every day lives. Who knows what He will bring each day....

Chicken Pot Pie

Pioneer Woman, oh how you've inspired me.

I decided to be adventurous today before church and get a meal prepared for our Sunday night dinner. I thought, hey why not make a chicken pot pie, and surprisingly, it was pretty easy.

I announced to my hungry farmer my intentions of dinner, and lo and behold, this is one of his favorite dishes, surprise surprise! Well, we'll see how it comes out tonight!

National Finals Rodeo

Yes, it's true, I was in Vegas!

I had the opportunity to go with my girlfriend and her mom and aunt, the absolute best company and girlfriends you could ask for.

This was my first time in Vegas, and I'm still not sure if I was really truly in love with the city. Did I like the ideas of cowboys and cowgirls and the country atmosphere, yes! Did I like the atmosphere of Vegas itself? Not so sure.

But let me tell you, I'd definitely go again with this crowd, until next year!

2010 Christmas

My husband drove with me to my home town and then about an hour more to cut down this tree from our beloved tree farm in West Point.

We put it up last night and decorated it-garland, lights, candy canes, the works! There's even an angel on top.

All I have to say is that I'm now in the Christmas spirit, I highly recommend getting your tree put up, and while you're doing it, put on some good Christmas music.

Here's the happy holidays!

Beginnings of a Homemaker

I stumbled across this picture the other day, and boy did it bring back some memories.

This picture was taken that day of my college graduation. My parents were there to help me pack up, and my boyfriend (yes the same one I ended up marrying) graced me with this present I am holding.

I had no cooking skills, seriously, diddly squat. So he decided that to get me prepped for real life, he would gift me an apron and cookbook. Little did I know it was his plan all along to have me start cooking for him!

I still have this cookbook and it brings back such great memories, and oh does my husband have a sense of humor.

Here's to years of cooking away!

My Favorite Sister

I know I haven't written in forever, and I apologize for that!

Today I realized that I really really miss my sister, Mandi. Yes, I do have a sister and we're about as opposite as can be, but then very similar in some respects. We finish each others sentences and have that twin complex where we think of the same things at the same time, weird actually.

She's serving in the Air Force and stationed in Hawaii, and so, with Veterans Day close, I just wanted to let her know I appreciate her (if she evens reads my blog). Thank you for serving us Mandi, love and miss you!

Your sister,

Heart of Gold

At my bridal shower, there was a game in which the ladies would answer questions about Tom and I.The questions were stated and then followed by four answers- each answer was the title of a song. When one of the question stated "what is one of Kristi's favorite's personality traits of Tom", my answer was "Heart of Gold". Great song by the way.

The reason I said all of this is because last night, after a long long weekend, Tom came home tired and beat around 8pm. And much to my surprise, hanging from his man hands was this gorgeous bouquet that he thoughtfully cut with his pocket knife. This is why I still fall in love with him each day.

He truly still does have a heart of gold. Mushy, I know.....

My Favorite Baby Pic of Tom

We still have a couple more weeks until his birthday, but I decided that I must post a baby pic of my husband. I understand that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but this baby is pretty darn cute! I'm hoping that ours will look just like this.

This picture sums Tom up very well: Always smiling, and takes whatever life gives him/weathering the elements. That's my husband!

Did I mention that he's always happy go lucky?

Hunting Trip

The terrible two-Tom and Jack, are driving to Wyoming (as I write this) to embark on their annual hunting trip.

What is a woman to do?
A whole lot really! I'm cleaning out drawers, organizing clothes, washing clothes, mopping floors, and guess what? It might even stay clean for a week. But seriously, that's the only good thing about having the one you love go on a hunting trip, I do miss him, really!

The point is, Tom loves to hunt, but he rarely gets time to do it. So I hope he's enjoying scouting out those bucks and spending some time with his brother!

Until next time,

Tom's Baseball Days

I've decided that since Tom will be turning 30 in a month, that I should dedicate some of this blog to him.

I've had the opportunity to go through tons of pictures of Tom life- baseball, family trips,basketball, hunting trips, soccer, you name it. I've had a blast and am realizing how lucky and blessed I am to have him as my husband, he's been through so much!

This is Tom playing baseball for the Oregon Beavers. If you all saw pictures of Dale, his dad, at this age, they'd be carbon copies!

Golf Tournament

Yesterday was a big day for me, I put on my first Golf Tournament Fundraiser, and guess who showed up to support me? This handsome devil right here, Farmer Tom, what a surprise, and he's a pretty good golfer too!

And of course, he's sportin' the Creighton Farm attire, I've taught him well! Free advertising right?

Our New Visitor

Ginger is such a social butterfly!

Our next door neighbors are great, and they have 3 weenie dogs. This one, Allucia, is definitely Ginger's favorite. Ginger will be gone all day only to return panting with little "weenie" at her side. Who knows what they do all day out in the fields.

At night, I head outside to feed the dog, and Ginger is sleeping on the doormat while weenie is sleeping in Ginger's dog bed.

Weenie also thinks she's the boss. When I open my front door, she comes right in and sits on the chair. Oh so cute! But then she misses her family and heads back home, last night Ginger was very melancholy without her friend.

Until next time Weenie/Allucia!

Preg Check Day!

It was a day that consisted of 100 heifers, 1 vet, 1 photographer, and 7 helpers. Preg Check day!

I had Jocelyn come out and take pictures of the whole ordeal, poor Jocelyn and her mom were exposed to all the cattle poo and snot. But I guess it was worth it, look at how handsome this guy is. I tipped Jocelyn extra to take some good pictures of my hubby as proof that he actually does work pretty darn hard.

Thanks Jocelyn, you're the best!

A Day of Cattle Work

Today I had the chance to go to work with my hubby. We are getting our cattle on camera (sounds glamorous right?) to sell online.

I shadowed him around and took as many pictures as possible. It's a rare occasion for me to go with him to work, and I'd love to do it more often.

Oh yea, my husband is that handsome man on the right, sorry Jack!

Our Flourishing Garden

Did I mention that I only wanted a 4'x8' garden? Well this is what my husband bestowed upon me, yes it's great, but do you see how huge this thing is?

On the other side of both rows of sunflowers are 12 mounds of pumpkins and watermelon as well as 3 more rows of corn, okra, and taters.

This thing keeps me on my toes, I have to harvest at least once a day. And we planted tons of okra since it's Tom's favorite, and let me tell ya, we have okra coming out of our ears, okra anyone?

Chickies & Kitties

Here they are! The newest additions to our farm.

Tom and I happened to come home a day early from our annual getaway, only to be greeted by some very loud chirps, and quiet hungry kitty meows.

I had given up on hatching out chicks since I assumed they would all hatch in the spring, so I'm definitely excited to have 3 little chickies running around, and the mother hen is oh so proud. Its so true to use the phrase "mother hen" she poofs out her feathers and protects those chickies will all she's got!

There are 5 kittens, and I don't know who the father is (what a floozy mama kitty), but they sure are cute. What a tiring job for a mama cat, her first batch was only 3, now 5, whew!

Our Annual Getaway

Well Tom and I finally got the chance to getaway for a weekend.

We headed North up the 395 and stayed in Mammoth Lakes for a couple days. We were able to fish in Bridgeport, visit our dear friends Bob and Beth in Mono Village, and even visit Bodie (a great ghost town which I highly advise to go visit).

This picture is from our last day fishing-Virginia Lake. What a gorgeous view right?

Our First Bountiful Harvest!

Yesterday the Farmer and I harvested our first veggies!

Well, radishes aren't my favorite, but those suckers grow like weeds! The squash is delicious! It's so sweet and great with a stir fry recipe and cheese, yum!

We are definitely looking forward to more veggies, keep beaming down sun!

The Shelton Family Visits

My parents, brother, and Franci came down to visit on the fourth of July weekend.

Here, my technologically advanced dad is showing Tom our house on Google earth. Here, Tom is amazed at the kind of technology that is available. We both still have old phones, no cool internet stuff....

With the great weather, we were able to veg out on the grass, I love sitting on the grass when the sun starts to go down, such a calming experience.

My Handsome Husband

Tom and I decided to plant a garden. I had envisioned a 4' x 8' plot, Tom the farmer envisioned the whole backyard.

Now we have a whole backyard full of veggies, anything you can think of!

I came home the other night to my husband out weeding the garden, what a sight. He's such a farmer. To get off work and still want to work in the does he do it?

I'll let you see some more pics of the fruits (or veggies really) of our labor after the fertilizer kicks in!

Ginger & The Mantis

Boy am I ever proud of Ginger, she hunted down and cornered this poor little mantis. The mantis was not very happy at all.

Mantis hunting is great, but let's focus on more important rodents: gophers maybe?

Also, this morning, Ginger had a liver! Where the heck did she get that? I hope there's not an animal out there without one, Ginger as the main culprit is no bueno!

Oh Pioneer Woman, How I Love You!

Well since my dream of being the Pioneer Woman's assistant is not going to happen, I will instead make her delicious recipes one day at a time.

Hey Julie did it to Julia in the movie, maybe I should star in a movie: Ree & Kristi!

I think I have almost made every one of her recipes in her book, and more online as well! But this one I have to share with you: Spicy Shredded Pork, yes it's delicious, and the local cowgirls like it as well, so I'd highly recommend it. To make it tonight for din din, check out the recipe!

Yes, this blog is supposed to be about my life out here, but cooking is a big part of it, and if I can share delicious and easy recipes with others (I was a horrible cook in the beginning) then I've done my good deed for the day!

The Baling Days of Summer

Oh how I've longed for this season, the season of cutting, inverting, baling, and hauling. Yes, it's here again, and even though it's the busiest season around these parts, it's comforting to know that this is what I'm blessed with year after year.

I don't know if you can see Tom in his baler far into the distance, but he's there I promise!

I decided to grab my camera and take a shot of him, sadly my camera doesn't take pics well from far away, but it will work.

The baler is my favorite part of haying simply because of the repetitious hum and pack of the alfalfa or 3 way into large bales. When they bale behind the house it's such a calming sound to hear. Come on over and enjoy the noise!

Little Ella Grace

Well I've decided to share a little of my past today: This cute, adorable, sweet little girl is Ella Oliver. Her mom, Julie babysat me as a small girl, and then when Julie had her daughter-Ella, I babysat her. Clear as mud?

The point is, that's it's an ongoing tradition, and boy do I love love love this little girl, how can you not love a face like that?

Ella Grace was actually the flower girl in my wedding and she was the best!

My sis and I took little miss Ella out to the dairy where I kept my heifer, and these are the cutest pictures ever, oh to view life through the eyes of a small child. Cherish the times while you can!

Oh Ging..ivitis!

So here's our trusty dog, how can you not love a face like that?

Did I ever tell you the story on her?
I told my hubby that I definitely needed a companion while I was here at the house all day, so I took it upon myself to adopt a dog from the local shelter.

I was torn between 2 dogs, and every time I go to a shelter, I just want to adopt them all, but Ginger caught my attention.

She's been the best dog we could have had out here. She catches all the gophers,mice, rats, rabbits, voles, birdies, well heck, you name it!

As for her name, she's been called Gingivitis, Gingerbread, anything that goes with Ginger, but we love having her as our trusty pooch out here in the country.

No Bake Cookies, Need I Say More?

These are one of my farmer's favorite cookies. I believe that his sister, Kandiss, is the culprit for getting me addicted to these as well.

They are totally easy to make, 20 minutes top. And when you grab one from the freezer/refrigerator, they almost melt in your mouth!

Why does it seem I always put these fatty recipes on my blog. I promise, I really do eat healthy, but sometimes I need that chocolate splurge, and I think these are pretty healthy.....

Here's the recipe in case you get that chocolate urge as well.

Oh How They Grow Up So Fast

Sadly, I am very allergic to cats, but how cute is this? I try not to let them run around the house, but the three of them come and sit on the couch and watch TV with us!

My farmer loves cats and kittens, like really loves them! He held one in almost all of the family pictures much to his parent's irritation.

So this was appropriate that I got a shot of Tom with one of his kittens, I think this one is Tarzan (he always climbs and escapes), they're pretty cute, and almost ready to be released back into the wild (or just the barn...same thing to them!)

All Her Eggs in One....Cubby

Oh the joys of raising chickies. I've been going out to collect eggs and wondered why I wasn't getting as much as usual, and voila, looky here. My little black hen is trying to set. But seriously, does she need to sit on this many?

It's like a pyramid of eggs, have you ever seen so many under one hen? The other hens will sit next to her, lay their eggs and then have little blackie set them, talk about being used!

Oatmeal Crispies-That's all I have to say!

Good morning!

I was totally craving cookies last night around 9, yes I know, sad, but I came across this Pioneer Woman recipe for oatmeal crispies and thought I'd give them a try.

They were delicious! Very easy to make, and plus, there was enough to store in the freezer for days to come! And with them fresh out of the oven, even better!

They are simple, delicious, yummy cookies with a hint of sweetness, make them today!

Hmm, what can I cook today?

Yes, it is true, I did borrow this picture from my most favorite photographer, Jocelyn. But it was too cute to pass up!

I went up to my grandma-in-law's farm-aka Winnie's Animal Wonderland-with Jocelyn's family and had a blast.

This calf's name is Goliath, yes I named it myself, but how cute is he? His mom is a Brown Swiss milk cow, where we get our milk from. And this little boy will walk right up to you! Oh the joys of a farm!

Make These Today!

It's been a while since I've been blogging, sorry! Baling season has begun, and I've got the chance to watch my husband out in the fields cutting the hay.

When my husband leaves for work in the morning, I come into the kitchen to see he drank all of the coffee except for a mere 1/2 cup, fed up with this waste of good coffee, I stumbled upon this (of course) Pioneer Woman recipe. I decided I just had to make it today!

It's delicious, I definitely had a chocolate craving today, and this satisfied it. Here's the link! You have to make these today, and plus, since they're homemade, they're even better!

Roy Rogers at the Creighton Homestead

Hello everyone!

So I just thought I would share what a blessing it is to live out here in the middle of nowhere.

Every morning my dirt driveway is graced by the presence of Roy Rogers himself. Actually, it's my neighbor, Bill Nolt, on his horse Kokomo. He is such a nice man! He dresses up as Roy Rogers and does tricks with his horse. He heads off to many events where he does parades or living history days. He's a hoot!

Here's one of his websites.

If you come out to visit, you might just be lucky enough to see 'ol Roy Rogers in person!

Peeps from New Feathered Friends

As I was sweeping the back porch this morning, I became extremely frustrated with all the bird doodoo that graced my porch. So here I am complaining until I follow the trail of droppings only to look up and see these 2 cute birdies!

Apparently, these are the chicks-they're huge! The parents come to feed them constantly, and since they're right out my back door I can here them chirping away!

So a lesson learned: don't complain about something until you take in the whole picture. Yes, doodoo is annoying to clean up, but then look at these little presents I have in my porch. I get to see little chicks and even hear their little birdy songs each morning.

Until next time,

Our Newest Addition

Oh happy day!

About a week ago, my husband informed me of his decision to purchase a new piece of equipment for our little bit of land as well as his parent's farm.

I mean look at this sucker, it can do everything!
Now we can level out our driveway, scoop out corrals, and dig holes for our new trees!

What a purchase! Tom loves driving it, but I have yet to get in it. I've heard it's pretty easy to use and is very fun to drive around in and work with. I'm excited to start using it for prettying (I know that's not a word) up our yard!

An Energy Farm in Weldon?

Good morning!

Well it's happening even here in Weldon, the County of Kern is proposing to allocate 500 acres of prime farm land to build solar panels. These panels will not lower the cost of energy for our residents, but instead will be sent out of the Kern River Valley to bigger counties.

This will in no way benefit our valley, and will be such an eye sore for any tourists, if they even want to come through here again.

I'm doing my best to speak out about this issue, it's just ridiculous what they're planning on doing.
To read more about this proposed solar project, here's the 61 page description. Oddly enough, the county is actually undergoing 11 projects at the same time, so all 11 need to be addressed, but the Weldon Solar Project is the one that will effect us most. Please, if you want to preserve this valley, make your voice heard by contacting Kern County.

Hoping to keep this valley solar free,

Some Great Ribs!

As I was taking a gander at all of Pioneer Woman's recipes, I stumbled across this one: Braised Short Ribs. Oh my goodness they were delicious!

I borrowed my mother in law's dutch oven, and let me tell ya, those things are amazing!

I would definitely recommend that you make this tonight if you have a dutch oven and delicious pancetta. You'll love it! Take a look at the recipe!

Also, for some fun ideas on cookies, these are my favorite so far, and really easy to make!

Well I went out to check on the kittens yesterday and they are definitely getting feisty. They were even trying to escape the box!

In a couple of days, we're going to put them in the guest bathroom and put a baby gate up. That way we can gentle them down, but boy, with these cat allergies of mine, it's not such a fun time for me!

There is actually the cutest video on YouTube about kittens, click here to check it out! That's how today's blog title came about.

Dreaming of the Country

I can't believe I haven't been sharing my stories lately. My husband is now a full time farmer, and we're loving every minute of it! We are getting our goat shed ready for our full time lawn mowers. We're also disking up the back field to plant our annual garden, let's see if I can make things grow!

I thought that I would share one of my pictures that I found the other day. This was my very first replacement heifer that I raised for FFA. Her name was Trixie. She was pretty unique. I had a total of 3 heifers in 2 years. My luck with cattle was no bueno! But boy is it fun to raise an animal for the fair!

As I think back, I remember, even when I took this picture, that I wanted to live a country life. I had no idea of how I could do it, but look at me now! Equipped with cowboy boots and tons of patience, I'm trying to bloom where I'm planted.

Born to Be A Cowboy

With our first year anniversary days away, I thought I'd share a little about my husband, farmer Tom. I have a cherished picture of my husband's early love for ranching and farming. Look how cute he is!

My husband loves being a farmer. As a small boy, he made a pact with his younger brother to return to the ranch when they were older to continue their passion for farming. Tom is almost 30, and his love for the ranch is still the same as it was as a child. We hope that our children will love the ranch as much as he does. Think of all the helping hands we could have, we're thinking 6 kids....but we'll start with one!

Enjoy the day!

Days Until Year One!

In honor of our first year of marriage, I've decided to reminisce about the the beginnings of our relationship together.

How my husband and I met each other is a miracle in itself, and boy am I blessed to have heard that still small voice in my head directing me down the right path.

The fist picture with the mountain in the background is on our first date together. He drove me up to Johnsondale in his parent's big Dodge truck and I felt like a million bucks. That was the first time he held my hand, and I remember feeling those butterflies. We went to a cute little restaurant called the Ponderosa, and me being a previous vegetarian ordered a simple grilled cheese sandwich. Him, being a meat and potatoes guy, was very leery on how this relationship would work...

I remember vividly seeing a couple across from our table in love and holding hands. And in the early stages of dating girls usually wonder, will this guy and I be like that too? Well I'm lucky enough to have him as my husband now.

Look at me rambling, heavens, until next time!

Chickens and the Eggs

Good morning!

This morning I heard a bark coming from the chicken coop, pretty scary!
I took a gander and realized it was my rooster (pictured). He had learned to bark as well as crow, so proud!

I started with 20 cute little chicks of all sorts, and now thanks to that cute little Ginger dog, have 15 (14 hens 1 rooster) perfect combo!

I collected my fist dozen eggs about a month ago, and have been loving the farm fresh eggs ever since. I get about a dozen a day with 15 hens! Perfect in time for Easter!

Enjoy the day!

Reality of Being a Farmer's Wife

Sadly, there is a reality when it comes to being a farmer's wife. A reality of life and death.

My favorite cat (her name was Spotticus-pictured) was hit by a truck on our dirt driveway this morning, pregnant and all. And I was the first to find her, not the best sight to see first thing in the morning! The sad thing was, is that she was really close to popping out her kittens.

My husband has taught me to embrace the idea that all things must pass and yes, it's hard, but little by little I'm growing used to it.

Well, we'll miss you Spotty. This coming from a city girl who hated cats, but Spotty was pretty cool. She had her quirks and I even made a kitten bed for her when she was going to be a momma. My hubby buried her under a pretty oak tree this morning, so now she's at rest.

Cherish every day you have, you never know what tomorrow brings.

Beautiful Morning!

Good morning!

I just wanted to say how blessed I am to have a view like this in the morning.
Today is the beginning of great week!

I also wanted to say how embarrassed I am to have realized that my blog address has two "life's" in it, oh the blonde in me is revealed!

Don't have much to say today except that everyday is a gift! And also, how great do you feel (women this is for you) when you just randomly dress up real pretty and do your hair? I did that yesterday and felt like a million bucks!

Spring & Rabbits

Good morning!

Spring is here, and the birdies are chirping outside even this early in the morning.

Well yesterday, our dog, Ginger, caught a rabbit for us and placed it on the front door mat, poor rabbit. Ginger catches more voles, gophers, mice, rabbits, (and leaves- apparently from the picture) than our cats combined. And with the alfalfa behind the house, the more rabbits that Ginger catches now, the better!

I went out to water the plants yesterday, and our apple tree that was recently planted, Gurdy (yes she has a name) is blooming- what a reminder about spring! My sister grafted Gurdy in FFA and tried keeping it alive in a pot. So when I moved out here, we decided to plant her out in the sun and rich soil, and she's thriving!

Last night for dinner I made a Pioneer Woman recipe again, boy do I love her!
It was delicious, if you're interested in making it, click here for the recipe.

And then for dessert I saw a recipe in Country Living for Trisha Yearwood's new cookbook, and these are delish!
Click here for the recipe from Country Living.

So now I'm fat from dinner and dessert, but they were so good!

The First Day Blogging

Good morning!

Well I'm new to blogging, but I watched Julie & Julia the other night and thought hey, if she can do it, so can I!

I'll start my first blog off by saying I was a city girl with a heart for the country life. I'm now a farmer's wife, and mothering my first litter of spring kittens. The chickens are laying eggs and today is a perfect day to bake some cookies for the hubby. I've only been out here for a year, and I'm still learning the ropes.

I've learned that farming & ranching takes much patience. Oodles of patience actually. Making dates and doing getaways are pretty special when they actually happen. So far, our honeymoon is the biggest getaway we've done so far. Hmm, what will the rest of this year hold?

Until next time,
