Thank you all for responding to my cries of woes on the comment thingy. So far I've tried all the suggestions with no success. I'll keep trying though. I'm sure I'm not doing something correctly.....(Mr. Cowboy says it's me anyway)! Sigh.............In the mean time.........it's back to the hay fields for me.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....
me at yahoo dot com
this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Before I begin this post......does anyone have suggestions as to how I can respond to the comments left on each post. I'm at a loss. I use to get notifications via email but now.....NOTHING. It's frustrating because I really want to respond. HELP!!!!!!!
So, when I taught fourth graders, each Friday was art day. We had a blast. I'd stand at the chalkboard with a large piece of paper taped to it and all my pencils at hand. The kids were seated at their desks with all their pencils and colors. That's one of the things I miss greatly. Anyway, I decided to pick up drawing again. It will take some time to get back up to speed so I'm grateful for youTube lessons.

Hi everyone! I've been missing in action for some time now. Don't ask what I've been up to cause, really, I haven't been doing much of anything except avoiding TV as much as possible. Of course Mr. Cowboy has suggested that I cook more lunch, dinner and snacks during the hay season. I assured him that I'm doing my best in that department....hehehehehehe
Eclectic Me is still around though. Here's my absolute favorite police lip-sync video. I'll tell you why I love it so after the video.
I hope you got some giggles from watching. I liked that there wasn't "one" theme song for the whole video and each department was showcased doing what they liked. My favorite part was the K-9 unit performing to "I Believe I Can Fly." I laugh when that comes on every time.

As I've told everyone before, I've been planted in front of the TV for weeks....well, after Mr. Cowboy leaves for the day......shhhhhhhhhhh!
Now I hooked on an old TV show from 2011, "Body of Proof"starring Dana Delany
Here's a song that I like but has nothing to do with me life with Mr. Cowboy. I just like the tune.
This is Ingrid Michaelson singing Maybe.

I must confess, other than hay season around here, I've been doing nothing but watering the grass, which now since it's been raining, I don't have to do that. So I've been binge watching BBC-TV. The Mallorca Files have got me hooked. I love the soundtrack from the show and am sharing one below.
Oh I forgot to mention, my cousin Clark "made" me purchase a Fire-stick thingy which opened my world up to sooooooo many more channels.
Have you had any close calls lately? (All in fun)

I'm back with another look into me world.
First, I hope everyone is safe and well wherever you are. This Covid-19 thing is nothing to play around with.
Mr. Cowboy and I are "hunkered" down (this is a Texas term) in place with plenty of food, games and honey-dos' to take care of.
Eclectic Me #3 - Here's a wonderful song by a great performer - Gregory Porter. Take a listen and enjoy.

On January 1, 2020, I lost mom. It was quick but not unexpected. It hurts my heart but I know she is in a better place.
I told a cousin the other day that I knew her for 64 years (a private joke) and it will take a very long time to process it all. I do have peace in my life through God, Jesus Christ & the Holy Spirit. And through my pain He is glorified.
I had pre-posted Eclectic Me and will try to keep that going. Please know that I appreciate your comments but am unable to respond for some reason but will do within my posts. Thanks to Gene, A Left-Handed Quilter, Guilitta and Barb for your comments. You all lightened my heart.
Keep my in your prayers!

I thought about titling it "Just When You Thought You Knew Me," or "No! What?" but settled on Eclectic Me which shows my diversity and complexity.
Eclectic Me #1 - Words
I love words and my favorite and number one is the Word of God.
God has been right there with me through my mom's situation; right there with me day to day.

I can't believe that it's been five months since I've posted. Let's just say life has really gotten in the way. Let me list the things that have happened:
- I'm in the same place but in a new home.
- I've lost my mojo for sewing "anything" at this point.
- Getting the grounds around the new house have been & remains a slight nightmare.
- Church and community have desperately needed my attention.
- My mom has fallen ill and is now living with me permanently.
- Thanksgiving and Christmas planning and feasting.
I've glossed over some of the things but I am so glad that I'm able to have my mom with me.
A big thanks to Gene for checking up on me. I really appreciate your concern.
Happy Holidays to all!!
I hope to post more in the new year.

I don’t do the running events but lots of Texans participant to raise funds or just for fun.
The cap collection is Mr. Cowboy’s favorite pastime. Every tractor dealer, car repair, hunting store, etc. he either asks for a cap or they just give him one. They all wind up collecting dust. Anybody understand what I’m saying?
I’m sure we all try to buy locally to support the small businesses. I love our little farmers market.
My final card is about fishing. I like bass fishing but cleaning & dressing the fish, I leave to Mr. Cowboy.....shhhhhhh!

Mr. Cowboy was skeptical but one night I tricked him into tasting the combo and now he's a fan.
What’s your favorite nighttime snack? I'd love to hear from you.
