Some of my family and hens in the snow

My dad and I on Christmas Eve

Me, my baby boy, Tyler and my husband, Mike (the one that keeps me sane)

Me, my perfect mom and my baby sister, Leslie

Not much to say's been a rough couple months for me.  The return of my insomnia and chronic pain has caused a bit of unrest (pardon the pun) in our household.  I refuse to let it stop my pursuit of all my  fiber, sheep and critter related activities, so it's only a matter of time before I figure out what caused this flare up and get past it. My first guess would be stress, there's been that aplenty for a lot of folks, we are not exception.  Not whining, just pointing out a possible cause.  I'm lucky enough to be married to a man that supports me 100% in whatever I decide to do.  When I'm down and out, he's there to shore me up and do what I cannot.  Frustrating as I find it to be dependent on someone else, it's comforting and awfully nice to know I have such a good man in my corner.  My blessings are many, my friends are always there for me as well as my family.  So, everything is possible!!!!  Small hurdles that need to be jumped and I'm home free.
I randomly picked a few pictures that made me smile today.  A rather selfish forgive me.
TaTa for now all


  1. I know........giggle, giggle. First beard he's ever grown and my mom is appalled. It amuses me.


He who angers you, controls you.

And my favorite.......You can't control what others say or do, but you can control your reaction.
