We were recently doing some tree work in a yard in Lincoln and were struck at how different it was from doing the same type of project on our farm. A project that would’ve taken 30 minutes on the farm took us about four hours to complete in town.

We have had an Airbnb on our farm for about a year and a half and almost every guest has commented on one particular aspect of their stay. It’s not the comfortable beds or the wonderful sunsets they are mentioning. Lots of their comments say how much they liked our dog, “Howie.” Who would’ve…

A friend and I were discussing a program or application (app) we use on our phones and I mentioned that I had over 100 apps on my phone. At this my friend stopped and looked up from her screen. You’re kidding. No, I’m not. I just counted the other day and there’s about 120 apps on my phone. …

I’m wearing red tomorrow and may wear red to bed tonight as we are going to our first ever Husker volleyball game this weekend. We are excited because we’ve been fans of the University of Nebraska volleyball team for years but have never personally seen them play. Maybe I’ll paint my face red.

Flying in a jet isn’t as fun as it used to be. We came to that conclusion after having spending too many hours in airports this past week. My husband, Tom, even went as far to say he’d drive to Florida next time rather than fly. I’m not going to agree with that statement but it made me think.

What was kindergarten like when you went to school? If you’ve been online lately, you’ll notice lots of photos of bright-eyed smiling 5-year-olds on their first day of school. They’re usually carrying a backpack that’s bigger than their back and is weighed down by a small box of crayons and …

What do you do when your youngest will soon be headed off to college? You drag your feet. It may seem like I’m bustling around in the bathroom cabinet gathering up band-aids and pain meds she might need. Actually, I’m moving bottles around and watching Maddie out of the corner of my eye as s…

This past May, our third child graduated from dental school and started work as a dentist in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It’s fun to have a Dr. Becker in the family and it also has made us more conscious of our oral health. Imagine having your dentist hang out with you and also not be shy abo…

I was interested in reading about Ted Turner’s plan to turn over 80,000 acres of Nebraska grass land he owns into an “ecoagriculture” non-profit group that will “develop strategies to conserve ecosystems while raising bison.”

Our college bound daughter is working on a home-based project this summer — a painting on the side of one of our barns. It’s a pretty big painting, about 10 feet tall and 10 feet wide, with a lot of detail but she has a schedule of what part of the painting she should be working on each week…

After heading down to our storm shelter during a recent tornado warning announcement, I realized we needed to up our storm shelter game. We each had grabbed our cellphones before we headed downstairs but no one had brought a charger. No one had grabbed a laptop to stream a movie, either. Yik…

I took photos of our above ground pool in May thinking it would be easier to sell it than to clean it. We leave the water within the flimsy walls of the pool over the winter, so it’s a job to get it swim worthy in the summer.
