photos// life update

Howdy everyone! I really haven’t been good at posting often ... so if you forgot about me I don’t blame ya. But if you didn’t forget about me maybe you want a life post? I think I’m just gonna give some pictures and tell you what I’ve been up to. I’ve been busy so I haven’t rly had time to do a post or anything, and covid hasn’t effected my life like at all...  mostly just get tired of all the talk and hullabaloo and over react-ness. Haha add that word to your vocabulary ;)

k let’s move on..

what
i
have
been
doing:


I’ve been trying to kinda get ready to finish school for the year, and also my sister is supposed to be having a grad party, but we’ll see what happens with that...

I’ve been riding horses and I just started riding my 2 year old filly (Liffey), so that’s been fun

We have been building a 3 stall dog kennel for our dogs, and we finally got it done and it’s really handy

I’ve been training my dog and helping my sister train her dog a little bit

It’s only the start and it’s already been a crazy calving year.. dad thinks one of our cows had TRIPLETS, but they were all deathed :( But a cow having triplets is super rare, just so you know. And yesterday a cow had twins, the one is doing good but the other one didn’t make it. Dad and I fed her colostrum and dried her of and gave her a nice luscious bed of straw.. but she was weak and she didn’t rly even try to live, she acted like she wanted to die it was sad


We’ve been getting ready for our mare to have her foal, which is really exciting and she could have it any day... I’ll have to do a post on it once it comes out ;)

^liffey^

Riding with law

You can see a glimpse of the kennel here, only part of one of the walls though




Grooming horses and getting as hairy as them.. 😂


If you look closely you’ll notice the strange position my dog likes to lay.. she kicks out her back legs very unnaturally 


Road trip 🤓




^nala, the horse that’s gonna foal^

law and his dog... don’t know what the world the dogs tongue is doing






^biking^


Writing a lot of letters... you wanna know a really smart thing, ( if you write letters),  that you’ve probably already thought of? Try copying the letter (with a printer) that you wrote to your friend and put it in the envelope with their last letter that they sent you and send them the original copy.. and when you get a response from them, pull out your hard copy of your last letter to them, and when they anwser questions that you asked them and they’re not clear about it, just look at your letter and you’ll know exactly what they’re talking about. b r i l l i a n t. 













Sorry for all of the dog photos...




Last month we iceskated on this pond but then it melted. It was sad when it did because we had so much fun on it. Like a couple days after I iceskated on it I walked across it and fell through the ice! It was terrifying and I thought nothing of walking across it because we had JUST iceskated on it a few days before.. the water didn’t go past my waist so it was fine. More just the cold shock and stuff...


Asilah is so funky.. and she makes me mad sometimes.. she killed a chicken the other day and it was so bad, so I yelled at her and she kept narrowing her eyes at me like this... 


this is what she does when she’s trying to be loving😝

Catan 😏I know they look mad but don’t worry they were just upset cuz I was beating them;) actually I think they’re just concentrating hard or somethin 


Lemon poppyseed muffins.. ill hopefully do a post on that sometime 


And that’s pretty much it... I don’t have very many pictures considering all the stuff I’ve been doing.. mostly just dog pictures lol ;)




Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, oh Lord, my strength and my redeemer. 


Psalm 19:14

White Chocolate Peach Icecream

Hi everyone! I don’t have time to do a long post but I thought it would be fun to share a recipe of mine. And more in the future maybe. I love making food and eating food, and I always mean to post recipes on here but never get around to it.  This is a recipe for white chocolate icecream with peach sauce🥰 ice cream is probably my favorite dessert, and I LOVE fruity flavors but unfortunately some people in my family don’t, so it’s not very often we make fruity icecream. I guess it makes me appreciate it more when I do have it🤷🏼‍♀️ Alright here’s the recipe: ( by the way you’re pretty lucky to have this for free, cause some day I’ll be a famous chef and the only way to access this recipe will be by buying my own cook book and it’ll be real expensive😝)









white

chocolate

 icecream

with

peach sauce





INGREDIENTS

(By the way I’m just estimating how much I used, so sorry it’s not exact)

2 1/2 cups of whipping cream

1 cup of whole milk

1/2 cup of almond or coconut milk (you can use regular milk if you don’t have any)

1/3 cup of sugar (or I like to use xylitol cuz it’s better for ya)

1/4 cup white chocolate chips ( make sure to use a good brand, and that they haven’t been in the freezer too long or it will not be good tasting.)

2 tsps of vanilla extract ( higher the quality, the better the icecream will be!)



 FOR THE PEACH SAUCE


14 or so frozen peach slices

1/8 cup of water

1/4 cup of sugar (or xylitol)



DIRECTIONS


1. Whip the cream until whipped as much as you would whip cream for whipped cream but if you have never whipped cream then whip the cream until it forms stiff peaks

2. Add the whole milk, sugar and vanilla, and beat again (but don’t over beat or you’ll ruin the whipped cream)

3. Melt the white chocolate and whisk the almond milk into it. Then add it to the whipped cream stuff.

4. Pour it into your prepared icecream maker and churn.

5. On a sauce pan over medium/high heat, add the peaches, water and sugar. Bring to a boil and stir! Keep stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan. You can chop up the peach slices with a spatula into bite sized peices or so. Boil and stir until it thickens up nicely (5-10 minutes) or if it doesn’t thicken enough add cornstarch and water.

5. Bring the sauce off the burner and allow to cool.

6. Then, when the icecream is churned to your desired-ness you can dish it up and serve it with the sauce! Hopefully you’ll like it!! I sure did! I want some right now just thinking of it!


K well that’s all for now! Come back and let me know in the comments if you tried making it!!

See ya later, 2019

You guys! Can you believe it’s 2020? It’s so fun to say. 2020. I love it. And since this is my first post in 2020, I thought it would be fun to review 2019 by giving a highlight of what happened and a couple picture from each month. Except I don’t have any pictures from January to May. 😒sorry bout that...



      2019 HIGHLIGHTS:






January:


I don’t remember anything too exciting that happened except for going to a New Years party and lots of beef butchering. We probably went sledding and did school the whole time. Hehe.



February:

I planned a birthday party for myself which was super fun, I made a chocolate caramel cake and we went to a swimming pool with a whole bunch of our friends and ate pizza. Other than that I can’t remember much of what happened😂


March:


I don’t remember doing anything special that month. I’m sure we were busy but I just can’t think of anything that we did. sorry😂😂


April:


My friend and I took a hunters safety class 3 evenings a week for three weeks that month. It was fun, we enjoyed our teachers and drinking a different kind of pop each night. Hahah


May:


My sweet lil nephew Alex was born! I had a violin recital and I also got 3 new horses to train<3 then me and my sister went and visited the new baby. Also we probably started get busy with calving season.



June: 



I was probably enjoying stoppage ( made that word up) of school and all the nice weather. My family also went to Alaska for a fishing trip, I worked with my horses a lot, got a new dog and we started putting up hay.












^alaska^















July: 

We were really busy that month, cutting and baling up hay, had a fun 4th of July celebration, I was enjoying training my dog and horses, helped my sister babysit, went on a few really long rides, and also we drank a lot of lemonade while working in the garden.




Fourth of July


















August:


We went camping in Minnesota with a few of our friends, my moms cousin and her kids stayed with us for a few days, harvested our garden, we were still doing a lot of hay, put up over 1600  square bales, some horse breeders got their horse back from me after I worked with it over the summer (which was a lot of fun), our aunt and uncle came and stayed with us for a few days and had a lot of fun with them, including laughing really hard during board games..














September:



Went to a family camp, started school, went to a camp out, I sold a horse, sprained my thumb (which is kinda dumb and it’s probably not a highlight of 2019😂), my sister came to visit with her family (so I got to see my nephew!!)











October:


Enjoyed fall for about a day before it turned winter, got a new dog, and put up hay in the middle of a snowstorm (haying normally stops in august just so you know, it was just a unique situation, we took somebody’s crop off their field for them because they weren’t able to harvest it)







November:



Visited some friends we rarely get to see, our shop started on fire and we couldn’t put it out so we had to call the ambulance (😳) had a violin recital,  some relatives from Montana visited us, and we also  celebrated thanksgiving. I love thanksgiving by the way;)


Bike riding:)




December:


Went to a cookie exchange (soo much fun), got another dog (😂), celebrated Christmas, my sister and her family visited us, and went to a wedding on New Year’s Eve (which I thought that it was a weird time to have a wedding but we got to see a lot of distant relatives and that was great!




It was a fun year! I matured a lot and learned a few life lessons.

What do you think? Was it a cool post? What month looked like the most fun to you?


Psalm 19:1-2

The heavens declare the glory of God, the firmament sheweth his handiwork: day unto day uttereth speech, night unto night showers knowledge.
