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…

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…
