    4/21/2016 10:36:05 PM, by KST1969

    4/20/2016 1:46:48 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    I cannot believe it! Someone stole 2 of the baby lambs from the neighbors field next door. The two dark lambs in the middle are the two that disappeared. No evidence of cougar or any type of predator activity . . . . so they're thinking it was the two-legged variety. I... Read more

    Last year, our neighbor brought in a horse and a few sheep to do some 'natural' weed control on his 5 acre parcel next door to us. Unfortunately, it was too late in the season by the time they arrived and all that they had was dry stubble. This year our neighbor is on the ball and surprised u... Read more

    4/7/2016 9:38:09 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    I had a good day. I ran off to the city to 'hunt and gather' as DH calls it . . . girl shopping, mindlessly wandering through shops with no goal or purpose except to clear the brain. Since the temp was supposed to be in the 90's (92 actually, and broke all sorts of records!) I decided to wear... Read more

  • Overcoming a traumatic event

    3/30/2016 3:10:42 PM, by JFGWIFE

    On Dec 31, 2015, I was held hostage in a home. The trauma and PTSD that brought to my life was unexpected and I was not equipped to deal with the fallout. Everything suffered... my home, my work, my emotions, and my weight. Food was my comfort and I paid for it. :( I am in therapy and doing mu... Read more
