Thursday November 23, 2017  I fell asleep with a smile on my face thinking of the precious grandkids I'll be sharing my roof for a while. Of all the things I'm grateful for those kids would have to be at the top of the list. I hope you have a…

Tuesday, November 21, 2017  Our local power company has told us to expect the power to be out from 9:00 am til 1:00 pm while they make some repairs today. So the cam will not be running during those hours. :(   I can always make a fire if it gets…

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…

Thursday November 16, 2017   The bad news is our Ford F150 is dead and will be dissected for part at our mechanics place. The good news is I now have a space for year round skirting and fleece activity in the garage ...until we find a replacement truck that is! (oh…

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…

Tuesday November 14, 2017  It looks like we'll have a bit more time for winter preparations around here as the weather continues to be dry and mild.  I know the skiers are praying for snow but we can use the extra week or two.  The pastures need a bit of work…
