Breaking News – Our newest addition!

Here in the RGV the great outdoors grow really fast! Even though we had about an acre of brush and diseased trees cleared and cleaned up (mostly), the remnants of plants began to grow everywhere! While it was great having someone else do the work, we decided to take-on the next go-around ourselves, just saying!

Kubota Harlingen TX After a great deal of research and  many discussions we decided to purchase our own Kubota Diesel Tractor, oh ya! Picked it up today and put it to work immediately. Garret is mastering the front loader and backhoe, like he’s driven a tractor before. We’re waiting for a couple of additional attachments to be delivered, and are working on some plans to help our little orange tractor pay for itself.

Meanwhile, progress with the house reno is moving slow. It appears that the contractor we hired has gone off the grid… no movement on the reno proposal for many weeks. So, we are now in the market for an electrician, plumber, framer, roofer and others who are going to help make our house whole.

 

New Family in Paridise

We get to see really cool critters around our property. There is a Linx that circles around here every month, usually with his harem of domestic looking cats. One such black cat with kittens decided to hang around and make our paradise their home. The kittens have various Linx distinctions and they sound wild when they talk. We haven’t seen the mom in a while, hope she returns soon.

RAIN… finally!!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted on our blog. Oh, awesome and fun things have happened since my last post Rain at Reba Bass Lakeand I want to write about them so my memories stay true. But today we’re finally getting some rain along with rolling thunder! We haven’t had enough rain since we moved here to keep our “rain water” lake with water, so it’s just been laying there waiting to serve it’s purpose… just saying.Jeep mud to the doors

The RGV has been getting plenty of rain, but our bit of paradise seems to have blue sky’s – mostly. I hope this storm cell brings our area the much need moisture we need and fills our Reba Bass Lake full of water!
