7 Quick Takes...

7 quick takes sm1 7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 218)

Joining Jen again :)

1.  This week has been crazy...starting right after my "quick take" post last week.  That evening my cousin, Whitney, went into labor at 34 weeks.  Try as they might, they couldn't stop it, and Braxton was born on Sunday:

As of today, he has all tubes out and is nursing like a champ.  NICU will soon be a thing of the past :)

2.  It Rained.  Not enough to prevent us from selling 75% of our cattle herd.  But, it rained.  I cannot tell you how important it is for us, but this little guy's excitement might:

3.  We branded some of our baby calves today.  

It takes a crew to do it, and these four little boys (along with two not pictured) make up the next generation of flankers!

 Getting a little fuel...

4.  Here is one of the ones not in the previous picture.  My nephew Stephen Ross and our John Paul will be right there with their older brothers and cousins.  A daddy and his boy...

they are just seven weeks apart...

5.  The boys and I made these coconut macaroons.  Only five ingredients and amazing (if you like coconut):

6.  I'm sure you've seen this picture floating around the net.

7.  May we remember that Memorial Day is about more than BBQ.  To all who have served, thank you.  To all who have lost, God bless you. 

Don't forget to see all of the other takes at Conversion Diary!


  1. Oh my goodness, Carter's face! Totally irresistible - no wonder it rained :)

    And I never get tired of the ranch pictures - so cool! REALLY lassoing! I feel like such a city girl, I don't think I've ever seen anyone lasso in person!

  2. exactly what does NSA Sex imply. I have observed it
    several times and would just like to understand what NSA sex signifies.

  3. My pharmacist and i consider that I have lost a good deal of excess
    weight within the past 2 many years as a result of medicine I get for tremors brought on by Parkinson's. I consider this medication five times per day and it must be on an empty stomach (1 hr. prior to and 2 hours right after a food) on the low protein diet regime. My pill schedule is six:thirty, 9:thirty, 1-1:thirty, 5:00, nine:00. I'm 5'5, weigh 126.5 pounds, seventy one yrs. outdated, lost over twenty lbs. and have a very good hunger. Do you've
    any mealplan recommendations and what time of the day I ought to
    eat my meals and snacks?
