Sunday, December 10, 2017  So far, the weather looks great for our event next weekend. We'll make sure it's warm and cozy inside Yaya's Yarn Barn so you can stop in and warm up after a visit with the alpacas. I'm putting the finishing touches on a few more items,…

Saturday December 9, 2017

Saturday December 9, 2017  Well, it's a little embarrassing to admit, but I found a "small mountain" of roving and yarn that I tucked away for my own personal use last fall and there is no way I'll ever find time to spin or knit with most of it.  So I'm…

Friday December 8, 2017  The pastures have stayed white since our last snow because it's been so very cold, but I think that might change today. If it really does reach the predicted high of 40° today most of the snow will melt and the alpacas will be off wandering in…

Thursday December 7, 2017  I'm trying to be normal and share something about the soaps I'm making or the yarn I'm dyeing or the animals but all I can think of is the fact that it's my mom's birthday and she's not here any longer.  I think sometimes you just have…

Wednesday December 6, 2017   Thank you for all the orders from our little store!  I'll be shipping today as promised.  It's 1 degree here as I type and I'm grateful that the sun will warm things up a bit before I head out to the mail box.  I'm keeping the…

Since you asked….

Tuesday December 5, 2017  People have been asking me how I felt about the visit we had yesterday from the current occupant of the white house. (I refuse to call him anything else) I was pretty much depressed all day long and it was one of the worst funks I've been…

Monday December 4, 2017

Monday December 4, 2017  The birds were right and we did get snow. Not as much as we expected, but everything is white this morning. Now we'll see cold and sunny weather for the week with no more snow in sight. Our events seem to be a magnet for snow,…

Sunday December 3, 2017  The weather guys say we'll see snow today. I don't trust them any more. But I do trust the birds. When I look at the feeders and they're having a feeding frenzy I know we'll have snow. I'll be checking the birdfeeder once I finish this update.…

Friday December 1, 2017

Friday December 1, 2017  Unseasonably warm temperatures continue for us today and although I know it's not what the ski industry needs, it's unbelievably pleasant working outside.  The alpacas are getting plenty of exercise as they wander about and I haven't even had to think about winter bedding in side…

Recycling

Wednesday November 29, 2017  Living on a farm presents endless opportunities for recycling. Old shower curtains became tarps or drop cloths, old rugs become cat or dog beds, etc.  All of the containers I get my soap oils in become feed buckets and the list goes on.  Many times we look…

Tuesday November 28, 2017   We're back to a somewhat normal routine and starting to schedule tours again. I plan to do some work on the on-line store today and share with our far away fans some new inventory that has only been in Yaya's Yarn Barn.  I'll also get out…

Monday November 27, 2017 The kids and grandkids are flying home today and it will seem too quiet here for a while.  We're grateful that everyone wanted to gather here and we made many memories. 💛 It's cyber Monday? Oops.  Being with the grandkids took priority over working at the…
