Much Better Now

Thanks to all of you who have asked about our dog Molly after she was attacked last week. I am happy to say she is almost completely healed and back to her old bouncy self. She had a rough few days and her ears were pretty mangled. Alex and I cleaned both her ears twice daily and got a hydrogen peroxide shower at the end when she shook her head. It worked though and her ears are healing nicely. Now she’s back to her regular job of keeping Grizzly – and everyone else around here – in line.



It has been quite a while – too long – since I posted regularly on the blog. Through a set of unusual circumstances my attention has necessarily been directed elsewhere. While this was not a situation of my choosing, it has given me some new perspective. Sometimes you see things more clearly and appreciate them more fully when you have been away for a while.  As I walked around the ranch the past week or so, I took pictures of all the things I’ve missed the most.

Trees, fresh air, clouds.

Our fearless watchdogs – with one ear up and one ear down.


Flowers that grow wild.

Cows – nosy creatures that they are.


Berries growing wild. Planted and watered by God, ready to be picked by me!



Wordless Wednesday #40

Wow- I can hardly believe I am up to 40 WW posts – though I guess technically this doesn’t qualify as I am adding words. Though I’ve been very remiss in keeping the blog up to date lately, we have been busy and the ranch is in full summer mode. Here are some recent pictures. 20160522_19572820160525_09355820160525_13440020160529_17220420160529_183811
