Friday November 17, 2017  It's a rainy snowy Friday and I imagine the alpacas will be in the cam view most of the day.  They don't mind snow or cold weather but they seem to know that rain will soak them to the skin and they prefer to stay dry.  Smart…

Cat games

Wednesday November 15, 2017  I guess it's part of my DNA that I need to have animals all around. To have dogs, cats, and alpacas wandering around me all day is just perfect. Yesterday the cats provided quite a bit of entertainment. Little Bogart is such a loud purrer (is…

Sunday November 12, 2017  Spending 8+ hours in a car with 2 of my most favorite people in the world was such a delight yesterday. We laughed, we cried, we shared many memories of my mom and we took in some of the expansive beauty of southern Utah.  We all agreed…

Wednesday November 8, 2017  Thank you everyone for all the sweet birthday wishes! I've decided birthdays can be quite fun if you don't mind getting older, and I don't. :)  It was a beautiful snowy day and really couldn't have been more perfect.   Even the darkness in the morning and so…

Monday November 6, 2017  We're seeing a bit of snowfall this morning and the frosted mountains look beautiful.  I know the cam is down this morning, but all parts are working here, so it must be an issue with the server in Wisconsin.  Let's hope it is resolved soon.   I've…

Sunday November 5, 2017  Our knitting class was great fun and we're talking about having our next one probably some time in January. Stay tuned. So far, we've made a cowl, and fingerless mitts with one skein, so we're thinking a hat might be a nice addition to the line…

Take a Walk

Friday November 3, 2017  One of the bonuses about having  puppy like Belle is that I need to take her on a walk every day. When she was just a teeny pup and the roads were so hot this summer, we did most of our walking in the pastures. And that…
