Wednesday December 20, 2017  "They" say snow is on the way. We really do need it so I hope they're right. Our grandson is coming here today to bake Christmas cookies so that should be fun.  A little snow falling outside will add to the magic. ✨ I'm still shipping orders…

Monday November 20, 2017  Preparing for a family visit, plus a big feast on Thursday, plus an Open Barn event has me just a teeny bit overwhelmed. My secret: make lists, spend extra time with the animals (my calming time) and it will all be fine.  :)  I'm grateful for…

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…

Friday October 6, 2017  Amazing moon last night wasn't it?  We also heard coyotes howling nearby and the dogs seemed on high alert all night.  (Yawn) Our kids from Salt Lake City were here for a visit and now I think Belle needs a 7 year old here to tire…

Making Memories

Friday September 8, 2017  I was lucky enough to have some Yaya time yesterday when I got to pick our grandson up after school. Belle absolutely adores him and was so happy to see him. Of course the other dogs were too but she holds nothing back. lol  He helped…

Wednesday August 16, 2017 I guess it's a good thing I was too busy with my grandson yesterday to listen to any of the news. It appears the sad excuse of a president that we have has again tried to blame "both sides" for the atrocities in Charlottesville.  There are no…
