I feel like it's going to be Thanksgiving and Christmas and 2017 in rapid succession. It really feels to me like since I drove the kids home from California this summer, we've been in a fast-forward time warp.Friday and Saturday were the culmination and fruition of 2+ months of soap-making and 2+ weeks of marketing,… Continue reading Time-warp wrap up
Today was a very full day. And seeing that it's 9:49pm and I work tomorrow this is going to be a very succinct post. Mostly just a way to get out of my head all that's bouncing around. Read at your own risk. I had the past four days off. Yesterday I attended a vendor… Continue reading This is just to decompress
(This pic has nothing to do with the post, but it just makes me laugh. Pic of me as an infant looking in horror at an armless doll sitting in front of me.)This is only my second week of working two shifts a week. I like it. I've had the last three days off and… Continue reading Sore throats, Puppy love and County Inspectors
We had farm visitors today! A soap customer and a nurse I used to work with came with their sweet kiddos to check out the baby goats and pick some soap. Of course, the baby kitties were a hit too. Even the chickens drew their attention. I enjoy sharing the pleasure of having a little… Continue reading another day in the books
I got up at 5:30 am on a Saturday morning to milk the goats and get ready for Ryland's first swim meet.Ryland is not my sports-driven kid. He has NO desire to play baseball like his brother, or any other sport really. So when he asked this spring if he could do swim team during… Continue reading My throat hurts.

Buster, Champ's brother, is staying with us for awhile, but will eventually go back to his home with his… Continue reading Summer Vacation: Day 14
Warning: This post was written last night under the influence of head cold medicine. I think I can add Milk Maid to my list of titles. Today was my first day milking Darla. This is her first freshening. First time on the milk stand. First time for everything. I've been a little reluctant to start… Continue reading Journal of a Milk Maid: Day 1
Today started off, off, and has continued that way.The husband stayed home sick. The kids were informed last night right before bed that the announcement by dad that there would be no school today was really just an April Fool's trick. This produced tears in one childand I decided we probably overdid the April Fool's… Continue reading A mouthful of a day

I haven't written consistently over the past few years. In fact, I stopped blogging and journaling about 4 years ago when my husband and I separated. I felt like God shut my mouth (or hands). In part I couldn't write publicly because I was afraid of what would come out and the further damage it… Continue reading Refuge in the Unchangeable.
