Tuesday October 3, 2017   The senseless tragedy in Las Vegas leaves me shaking my head and sad for humanity.  I'm afraid I will never understand why people do these things.  We need more love and tolerance, this I do know. Share a smile or a hug with someone who…

Monday October 2, 2017  Belle and I take a walk together most days. We see feral cats, neighbor goats and assorted creepy crawlies.  But yesterday a cougar walked right across our path. Belle was focused on a caterpillar making its way across the road but my jaw dropped. He walked right…

Sad day

Wednesday September 27, 2017  It was expected, and I'm glad she is no longer suffering, but I don't think any one is ever ready to lose their mother. I'm only at peace with it when I think of her being reunited with my dad. They were the sweetest lovebirds together…

Tuesday September 26, 2017  Yesterday I reclaimed my kitchen. It had been buried under yarn, yarn labels, curing bars of soap, soap labels, loofah soaps and more. Throw in a hefty dose of dog toys scattered all over and well,  you get the idea. But it has been reclaimed. :)…

Thursday September 21, 2017  The new soaps are all cured and ready to sell, so today I'll be labelling and wrapping them.  We have a new scent this year that is classic vanilla and it smells divine.  The soap has cured into a dark brown which is what will happen…

I can see clearly now…

Wednesday September 20, 2017  It will be sunny and cool today, a perfect day for getting the pastures all cleaned up. Way back in the beginning I'd use the rake and shovel method and try to do it every day. Oy! That didn't leave much time for anything else!  Once…
