I've Gone Canvas

Recently, I came in contact with a printing company out of Austin, Easy Canvas Prints.  They transform your photos into canvas prints.  They offered to let me try them out.  I couldn't think of what picture I would want printed.  I have my walls pretty much covered in my photography.  Then I thought of it....

About a month ago, I went to Dallas to take a childhood friend's engagement pictures.  You know it's a challenge for me to do people pictures!  But they turned out well.  She was happy so that is all that mattered.  Anyhow that was it, I would print one of my favorites for them as a wedding present.

Today it arrived!  I was excited to open the box up and see how it turned out!  Here it is...

It turned out great!  I really hope they like it.  I know I'll be using the company for future canvas orders.  I won't hesitate to send my photography their way.

If you have ever thought of making a canvas, try them out.  The website is SO easy to use.  The customer support is wonderful too.  But of course, they are Texans so you get that great Southern hospitality!

Welcome to Hell....

That's what it feels like around here.  Going on our 69th 100 degree day.  Plus no rain.  Gotta say it's pretty miserable and no real end in sight.  Here is our extended forecast.

Not really something to look forward to!  BUT we did have a cold front last Saturday!  Our 100 degree record setting streak ended with a day in the 90s!  I never knew 90 degrees could feel so good. 

We've been moving cattle around.  Stubby was brought home.  He's penned up with a couple yearling bulls.  I  get to go out every evening and feed them.  Probably the highlight of my day cause I love my Stubby so!  They wait patiently for me...

Gonna bring the rest of the cows from the lease home.  The grass is burned off.  So we'll be feeding them here.  Fingers crossed with taking them off and Lord help us, we get some rain, the lease will come back for winter.  It's the worst I've ever seen it.

Tanks are drying up all around us too.  Luckily, both at the house and lease, we still have water.  The one at the house has dropped 20 feet or so.  Still enough water for Diesel to swim though!

And Penelope is growing like a bad weed, as you can tell from the picture!!  She and Diesel are best buds.  And torment each other daily!

Other than that, nothing much going on.  Just trying to stay cool.  Hope all is well with y'all!

My Near Death Experience

The Husband was putting out hay this morning in the calf pen.  I was keeping the calves from escaping out the open panels.  Thought I would video while I was just standing around.

So I look silly, cause the calves stopped right in front of me.  They looked at me like "what is up with you?"

The Husband's response to me scurrying to the fence when I saw the group of calves running at me...

Isn't he sweet.  Don't run from those calves.  Yea, I can just see it now...what happened to you?  Ummm, I was stampeded by calves cause the Husband told me not to run....
