I'm a city girl turned country dweller, with more miles on me than I care to admit. I share my life with my writer husband, four dogs -- occasionally six -- a cat and currently 16 Nubian milk goats, two of them pregnant. Chickens think they're free-range, and have started laying eggs but something is stealing the eggs so we have a live trap set to catch the thief.

I'm a city girl turned country dweller, with more miles on me than I care to admit. I share my life with my writer husband, four dogs -- occasionally six -- a cat and currently 16 Nubian milk goats, two of them pregnant. Chickens think they're free-range, and have started laying eggs but something is stealing the eggs so we have a live trap set to catch the thief.

Last year was supposed to be spent finishing up projects and cleaning the property, but was derailed by some heart irregularities. We did expand the goat yard and build an extension on the barn to accommodate the additional goats.

2015 will be a time of finishing the root cellar, clearing along the fence line and cleaning out the storage shed. If time and energy permit, I'd also like to turn the wasted space where the water heater used to live into a towel closet in the bathroom.

I don't do well with formal exercise programs, partly due to being so far from an affordable gym, so work is my "exercise plan."

Let's be grateful for those who give us happiness;
they are the charming gardeners who make our soul bloom.
~~Marcel Proust~~

Thank you for being a flower in my life.

Our daughter tried the Thunder Shirt for her dog, and it really helps, he gets super anxious in certain situations, and she said it was definitely worth it.

Freedom's Price

Today we celebrate freedom
thanks to those who came before.
Those brave men who fought and died
in each and every war.
Freedom always comes at a price,
And while we celebrate
We should tip our hats to the heroes
who made our country great.

Happy 4th of July my friend

We got a jersey for our dog because she was scratching so much causing bald spots. It turns out she is a lot calmer during storms. So any shirt might do. My husband also puts one of his used t-shirts in the cage when we travel and it calmed her down.

Just a thought...
