So I feel that June has just gone by WAY to fast. It seems like I got Koda's birthday out of the way and the month is now gone and July starts tommorrow crazy huh.
This month has been full of watching my neices and nephew, which has been lots of fun and really not all that bad. I have a lot of wide open space to just kick them outside and let them go. Its funny though how my girl is really the only one who roams, she usually can get Tanner and Sadey to go with her, but her other three cousins usually need me RIGHT THERE! Its kinda annoying seems like I can't get anything done.

A few interesting notes of observation:
1. We all used different fabric designs/colors. Critieria: Red, White, & Blue, What variations!
2. 3 of us used the same pattern twice (six blocks are the same pattern) but you can't tell because of the different colors that everyone used.
4. It turned out great!

1. Newly Wed Bliss
This stage is obvious and very self explanitory. Its usually the newly wedded couple that have this stage. You can see it in their eyes, their body language, their attitude. Very much in love. It begins before the marriage in their engagement days and is tripled in magnaitude after the marriage [especailly if they were not physically active before, you know what I mean :)]. They are in love!
This stage is the most apparent in after the couple has retired. For they are no long having to work 24 hrs a day with keeping the house clean, the laundry done, the kids feed, ect. Nor are they having to go to a job anymore, they are home with their sweetheart after many years of marriage. Sometimes you see a bit of Newly Wed Bliss show back up, but its not like it was when they were newly weds. They are the couple that does stuff together, grocery shop, sit on the porch, go to church, and they aren't having to keep their eyes on little ones running around, they are able to just enjoy each others company. What a wonderful stage, tell you one thing, I'm looking forward to this. This stage can also come before the couple has children if they wait awhile to have children they will fall into this mode or a form of it.
4. Just waiting
This stage happens when one member of the couple has passed on, and the other one is just waiting to move on to be their loved one.

So do you want to know what its like to be a ranchers wife?
You might be a ranchers wife....
...If you know how to change the flat on your truck, but can't because the spare is on a flatbed.
...If your second vehicle is still a pickup.
...If your husband has ever used field equipment to maintain your lawn. ...If "picking rock" is considered a chance to get out of the house.
...If taking lunch to the pasture is as close as you get to a picnic.
...If you can mend a pair of pants and the fence that ripped them.
...If the shopping list in your purse incldes the sizes of filters, tires, chains, cables, spark plugs or shotgun shells.
...If your kids' wading pool has ever double as a stock tank or vice versa
...If duct tape is always on your shopping list.
...If the directions to your house includes the words, "miles", "silos", "last", or "gravel/dirt road". ...If you measure travel in miles not minutes.
...If your husband says, "Can you help me for a few minutes?" and you know that might be anywhere from a few minutes to six hours.
...If grass stains are the least of your laundry problems.
...If your refrigerator contains medicine, livestock medicine.
...If you need a pair of vice grips to run a house hold appliance
...If your husband gave you flowers, but you had to plant the seeds yourself.
You think I'm kidding? Haha nope, this is the truth same goes for being a ranchers daughter. Oh but I wouldn't do anything else.

June's Book is The Hunger Games by Suzann Collins. It is an edge of your seat kind of book. There's a little bit of everything mixed in; love, comedy, death, the whole works. Want to know a bit more about this book? Check out Bookin Mama's blog she gives a great overview of it.
