Whoa Nellie

Valentine's day was great..
I got up and made us some waffles with Banannas.. they were awesome..
Then my dad took my mom and I out for Valentine's Lunch in Spartanburg :)  we had some awesome Italian food.. then I went on the search for Veal...  it was dern hard to find...
but, I made a lovely Veal Piccata, because I could not find Marsala wine.. hahaha
and some baked clams oreganata..
My cowboy gave me a neckalce

and I got him a 20 cigar variety pack.. and a moon pie valentines candy thingy :)








Veal Piccata
Valentine's day was definitely different this year becuase the 2 days leading up to it... EVERYTHING was closed due to ice and the 5 inches of snow we had on the ground... heh..
about that snow storm,  Tuesday I closed early because we had a blizzard.. Wednesday, we were covered over with snow.. then the ice storm came.. so we had snow underneath Ice...  After wedesday,  My house was spotless... cabinets scrubbed.. even the refrigerator...  I did every exercise video I had in the house... and rode the bike.... by Thursday... I was stir crazy....
so Stir crazy I then decided to clean out the pantry.... and take pictures....
and here is what I came up with..
after the snow storm it was buisness like I was running a special... I was slammed..

But, Wednesday morning my Cowboy headed for some uncharted territory.. called Idaho... and he went to visit a Dairy farm up there... I went to work, after waking up at like 5am with him..
Then after work, I went home tried to clean up some of the mess that was my floor, after the snow melts, comes the mud... whch ends up all over my foors in the form of doggie paw prints...
Then I went and groomed Maggie and Ragnar, trying to make sure they stil knew I loved them.. Then hurry up and took a shower to head to Columbia to go to some Reception/Board meeting at the
Downsizing to a smaller purse to match my walther
statehouse... I had to change purses, and when I change purses.. I have 2 other dress purses... when I need to play nice and professional..... and one fits my walther and one fits my keltec... I chose to slick and sexy like bond that night, therefore; I picked up the walther and threw it in my Italian leather black purse....and headed out the door towards the vehicles... so, I'm about to leave, and I'm trying to decide what vehicle to take...
I looked at my truck.. and I always would rather drive a truck through the city.. then I longingly looked over at my Corvette and said... well, I haven't driven you since January... (which was the last sunny day) and I figured all the grime was off of the road... so, I eased her out of the garage and headed down the road towards Columbia.. I pull up to this swanky place I was supposed to be..
The Valet guy comes to my door.. I get out... I explain to him that if he can't drive a 6 speed, to let me know and I will happily park it where it needs to go.  he said he knew how.. so I then told him not the scratch or dent her either... and then appologized for being such a picky persn... he completely understood.. and handed me a little voucher for my key...
I watched him pull away in my car.. and then got ushered in by the door fella...
I got into this place.. and It was HUGE....  but. thankfully anther doctor on the board walked up behind me as I was getting instructions on where to go..  we got on the elevator and went up to the 3rd floor.. heard some people behind these doors and opened the doors up to realize we were in the t-totally wrong place.. we smiled waved and walked right out... wandered down the hall until we found the ballroom we were supposed to be in.. 
Ragnar in the big field
So, I did all my meet and greet BS and headed over to the mini bar that they had... I asked for Jack Daniels and he bartender told me they didn't have it... So, I looked at him real hard.. and shook my head... and he offered me johnny walker or makes mark...  neither of them were my cup of tea.. so, I picked the makers mark and headed back to the corner so I could watch the crooks (politicians) in action....  but, in my journey back to the corner.. I was stopped by a democrat looking for my vote, he explained his stance on health care, and I explained I didn't give a rats ass about that, I was worried about his gun laws, because I was a pistol packing woman and I wanted to protect my right to bare arms.. end of story.... well, before that got heated they called our meeting to order.. and that was that.. 
After out meeting, I was leaving and going down to get my car.. and I was just telling another colleague of mine about how I wanted to completely restore my Stingray and sell this corvette...
and it was taking a long time for them to bring me my car.. and he asked me if I had ever seen that movie Ferris Bueller's day off, and we were laughing about them racing my car through the streets of downtown Columbia... and I spotted the car coming around the corner.... and I all but dropped my jaw... it is gorgeous.... sleek... low profile, curvy, shiny...... I fell in love the car all over again...
So apparently my little idea was just shot out of the water...  and Corvettes are like lay's potato chips.. you just can't have one..
Thursday was a very busy meet and greet with politicians.... and it was there.. that I realized two things... one.. I don't like politicians... two... I've become a very selective eater... between hearing all the crap about the rubber yoga mat substance in the subway sandwich buns.. as well as the article that came out talking about it's in Arby's and Wendy's and all those places.. I'm thinking holy crap.. not that I eat there, but, are they trying to poison us? hahah
you would think i'm a health food nut.. haha
But, I was perusing the Breakfast buffet and saw eggs, and they didn't look like the eggs that come out of my hens butts.. so I like my eggs a nice deep yellow color not pastel.. so I didn't eat those.. I did get some bacon.. and then a bunch of fruit.. and I'll tell you what... the bacon sucked...
So I ate fruit...
see.. I'm getting all picky and crap...
hah...

I put Ragnar in the General Population field to get away from the baby stallion and all the breeding that was about to go on... and the Farrier met me at the ranch on Friday...  we finished with the horses up front and went to go out to the field to get him.. and he was waiting for me by the gate....
and he had been out there for like 3 days.. and I would check on him every day... and he was waiting at the gate... well... after I got him caught and we were talking about what horses we were going to do... the other horses came around and started trying to beet him up... it was bad... So I put him in the birthing barn with Gracie...  they are very happy and content together...
I can see it now when Gracie has her baby... he's gonna be like "IT"S NOT MINE I SWEAR" hahahah..

Lets see what else, is news around here...  We are selling the motor home and we are going back to the tractor trailer... and Saturday morning, I took my Cowboy back to the Charlotte airport and he flew out to Virginia, to pick up this freight liner we bought.. and he got back super late saturday night.
I was waiting for him when he got home.. I like the tractor.. it's black and flat/boxy.. those are the ones I like the best.. So Sunday we were going to work on it a bit.. and I was on a ladder peeling the sticker off of it.. and it was a big sticker.. and I was ripping a pretty good sized piece off.. and I had my whole body into it... and the sticker ripped and I face planted the ladder....
My eyes started watering and a string of profanity came out of my house and my nose started running..  holy crap I figured I broke my nose...  but, the next morning I woke up and nothing was broken.. so Bully for me... but I woke up with a severe sinus headache.. so I got to feeling around on the bridge of my nose.. and ugh..  I felt a ridge.. so I snapped it back.. and I've been ok ever since..

Also, that day.. I had a toilet on the back porch that has been sitting there for a while.. so I decided that I'd plant flowers in it.... so I spruced up around the house a little bit..






Then Monday for lunch I came home... and the cows tore down my fence and ate all my flowers...
needless to say. those little jerks are headed for the big pasture soon..


We have hired some ranch help.. and it's a nice young couple that is moving in.. we are putting a trailer out back for them.. and they have some horses.. and they do some training and barrel racing.....
and here lies where this story is now going...

Friday night, Maggie and I went to our first ever barrel race...
Holy crap... I had a blast!  I think that ragnar would be a better barrel horse, but Maggie made me proud..
Maggie Wondering why she saw all these horses and didn't hear no gun shots..

Maggie cracked me up... we were standing there with some other horses for a while.. and we were like 25th in the go order.. and they were steady running people though.. and then all of a sudden I hear my name and maggie starts dancing around and I couldn't keep her still.. it was like she knew my name.. :)
This weekend, we have a competition in SC.  But My cowboy decided he was going to Alabama to shoot a big eastern series.. but, I can't close my office to go.. so I'm going to SC with Maggie and Ragnar and my Dad is going to come compete with me too :)  I'm going to have a great time..

I reckon that is about it around here...  This was like 2-3 weeks worth of life I was trying to hit the highlights..
