Winter in Texas

The snow was beautiful on the ranch! I love being “out in the country” so to speak!

The “kids” took Little Buckaroo to a lactation specialist yesterday and a follow up today. He’s been a little jaundiced. We sat him in the sun some today. He has an appointment with the Pediatrician on Thursday.

George came to get me yesterday and again today as he is staying at a “fisherman’s lodge not too far away”. I was craving unsweet iced tea so we went to McDonald’s drive thru. Someone had built a snow man.

River got to outside for a pic! But yesterday and today the snow has melted.

Oh by the way, I’ve been moved to the backseat lol!

Here’s a peek inside the man cave…

Me hanging with the Little Buckaroo.

He’s holding George’s finger below.

The sunsets are just a beautiful as always!

I love the contrast of the snow and cactus.

I’m really getting tired with the lack of sleep. We also eat fast food and fatty foods when here. So I needed my greens today with my e+shot included. Had that this morning.

We have had Walmart shopping again today. People have brought lots of food.

I’m getting my Findlay fix (grand dog). I’ve been taking the early morning shift. So resting some in afternoon. I’m pretty tired out myself but it’s so worth it. Just so sleepy right now!

And my Roger fix!

Best try to get a nap. I keep falling asleep during this post!

More later- just going with the flow. Snow mostly gone except in shady spot! The time is flying by.

Meeting Grandson and a Snow Storm

And here we are, holding our precious grandson after traveling miles to get here. If we look a bit tired, we are. But don’t tell Katy. You never mention how tired you are in front of a mother who has just given birth!

He is so special! Of course tears of joy fell at the milestone moment that I held the baby that my own baby “begat”!

After a brief visit with Roger tied outside we gathered him up and headed to the hotel! We unpacked and checked the place out!

Quite the interesting place, mostly where fisherman stay. A nice cozy place better than the motels! And by a lake with ducks!

So the big deal was the snow storm coming! What????? Four to six inches?

So I put some ideas in place. I suggested we buy things for the motel kitchen for a day or two and things for me that I’d want or need IF Katy wanted me to stay with them. I let her choose what she needed/wanted. She texted for me to stay. George was all hip to stay in motel with Roger and let me go. I wasn’t going to stay in hotel by myself either and he wouldn’t have suggested it.

We had a few items to get for Katy too. Some Walmart didn’t have and we had to go to CVS. We also had to drop off groceries at the motel kitchenette and I repacked for two days for Kate’s.

People had brought food to Katy and Cody. We didn’t want to eat up their food even though they offered. (I did eat some as seconds though today). But I ordered Ken’s Chicken and fish plates to pick up. One of each and we had a buffet at Katy’s.

We had found male doggie diapers in the right size for Roger. So I guess he was allowed to come in. He sat quietly in his bed and was a bit mesmerized by Findlay, Katy’s dog. I think he enjoyed seeing her again. My heart was content! My pack was all together lol!

So we ate and George and Roger headed back to motel. I prayed they would be safe there in that remote locale. Felt good knowing he had protection!

I was happy to have a hot shower and a hair washing finally and into my PJs. I was prepared to help however needed and snoozed off and on on the sofa which reclines mostly all the way. I watched Cody change a diaper in case I needed to. It’s been a while! But mainly needed to know where everything was.

Cody is a wonderful father and husband. He worries and takes care of Kate. He was determined she would eat and sleep, and he took charge of diaper changes.

My time came for helping around 6 and I watched over him while they slept a couple of hours. They were refreshed and when they got up I fixed breakfast for us and cleaned up the kitchen.

We awoke to a fabulous snow of course! We missed George but he was happy I think to have a man cave of rest. He had guitar, books, Roger, food, TV, Titans game, a lake view, and seemed happy with that. The last couple of days were a bit stressful with the drive and with Roger especially! Then all the running we did yesterday after we got here.

I too was happy to be cozy here! But I missed him.

Got this shot during my watch this morning! A very sleepy me! Raw no makeup!

I watched as the snow inched forward this morning in between cat naps. And as the morning came I could see through the window it was coming down for a while. When everyone got up Katy opened the blinds and we had had about 4 inches then and it continued to fall. I captured a few pics.

Also took video!

Around noon it appeared our Little Buckaroo was getting jaundiced. So we all worked through how to resolve that with Google’s, phone calls to docs and so forth. Personally I think he looks better this evening. But he will be checked out tomorrow as roads clear.

I tried to read but got sleepy. Drinking a lot of coffee! I prayed silently for Little Buckaroo. And as I finished a red bird flew to the window where I stood.

So that’s about all I know right now. About time for another shower lol!

And perhaps dinner. George coming to get me tomorrow and we will see what the day brings.
