It’s been cold this week.  Not Wyoming cold, but Kansas cold. And it snowed. Not Wyoming snow, but Kansas snow. I stayed home one whole day just because I could. Then cabin fever set in and I ventured out to town. The little town (Sun City, pop 40), not the big town (Medicine Lodge, pop […]

  Happy Mother’s Day to everyone who is a Mother or has a Mother. That would include the whole world. I hope. I wrote this Mother’s Day Blog Post in 2011 Here’s the link to it: Mother’s Day By Mother Nature Enjoy!!! Love,  Cowgirl Red    aka   Terah   aka “Mom”

We finished all that moving last week. And I hurt. Physical pain is a welcome relief. It can be fixed with a couple Aleve and day’s rest. Life goes on. I’m actually quite pleased with myself. I’m stronger than I thought I was. I do wonder , though. What’s my new normal going to look […]

I’ve been spending a lot of time in the past few weeks contemplating how I was going to get my things moved out of the McMansion with no help in sight.  You see, my stuff is on the 3rd floor and there are no stairs. No stairs inside or outside. No sign of any coming […]

Ever since T.H. texted me that it was “curtains” for us, I started gathering up and organizing my “stuff”. My most precious possessions.

   I posted about this quilt a few months ago.  At the time I thought it was the ugliest quilt ever made. As it turns out, it is the most favorite one I’ve ever made. I went on an Artist’s Retreat to Santa Fe in November, having just finished the top. I showed the blog […]

I have been practicing with my new Free Motion Quilting Foot. I take one fat quarter ( 18″X22″) and make a quilt sandwich and just go for it.  I was just messing around but when I filled up the whole square, I thought ” This is almost the size of a pillow” Why not make […]

Sometimes people are involved in competition with me and they aren’t even aware of it. For instance, this guy Andy, at a recent Cattle Dog Clinic. I pulled up in my Subaru with my two dogs crated in the back.  Andy pulls up with his six dogs crated in the back of his truck and […]

This is a sweet little Mother’s Day Story from Mother Nature herself. When Puncher was a puppy, I brought home a stray Mama Cat from our overcrowded shelter. It was love at first sight. Puncher and Mama Kitty were inseparable.   She beat up my other dogs regularly but she loved Puncher. She taught Puncher that cats are […]
