What’s up with the cam?

Tuesday January 23, 2018  Those irritating lines through the cam display bug me more than you can imagine!  I've tried checking every wire connection out there and still cannot figure out what's causing it. Several wires are buried under too much snow for me to access them so I guess…

The PIBs are back!

Friday January 19, 2018   It's time for the Sundance Film Festival and you know what that means.  Crowds and traffic and people who can't stop looking at their reflections as they pass by the windows on Main Street will have us avoiding Park City for the next 2 weeks. The PIBs (people in black)…

Thursday January 18, 2018

Thursday January 18, 2018  So we've talked it over and we've decide to hold a mid winter open house in February. We chose February 17 because it's part of President's day weekend and we often have visit requests for that weekend anyway. So add it to your calendar and come for…

Tuesday January 16, 2018  We're planning a bit of a "shindig" for Ed's milestone birthday this weekend so of course the snow magnet is starting to work.  You know that any event we plan brings a change in weather!  Our snow magnet is actually more dependable than the regular weather forecasts.…

Monday January 15, 2018  I had a lovely visit with all the animals yesterday as I resumed some of the feeding chores.  Of course the fact that it was in the 40's and sunny made it easy.  We're now seeing sprouts of green grass and the birds are confused enough that…

Sunday January 14, 2018  Ed gave me a wonderful gift yesterday and did all the animal chores for me. Yes I do love being out in the barn and caring for the animals but to take a whole day to rest while healing was much needed.  My phone tracks my steps…

Saturday January 13, 2018  Another 40 degree day in the "winter that wasn't".  It's so strange that we haven't even had one night below zero.  We often see snow here til April, so there's time to change the landscape yet, so we'll keep hoping.   Ed will be opening Yaya's Yarn Barn…

Friday January 12, 2018  I really thought I'd get my newsletter out yesterday, but alas I ended up back in bed again.  Sometimes the important stuff shifts and a nap really is the important stuff.  There is no way I can take care of all the animals and the business…

Thursday January 11, 2018

Thursday January 11, 2018  Two good things: #1 We had a skiff of snow yesterday and that meant I could use the sled to deliver hay - much easier than the cart these days. And #2 I slept for about half the night.  yay!   Still coughing and achy this morning…

A very bored puppy

Wednesday January 10, 2018  The flu continues. Poor puppy Belle doesn't understand why mom is not taking her for walks and spends so much time in bed.  So she built a fort - I kid you not.  Next to my bed is a nest of pillows, dog bones, dog toys, one…

Bonus days

Tuesday January 9, 2018 I guess I should be grateful that we're having bonus days this winter where chores are easy and temps are mild. I'm still feeling under the weather and these days do make my life outside easier! But we do need snow, not rain.  I'm hoping this…

Sunday January 7, 2017

Sunday January 7, 2017  All the snow we were hoping for came in the form of rain!  In January! We'll have another chance for the white stuff next week and I suppose I should reread some of my blog posts from last January when we were nearly paralyzed by so…
