Friday’s Flock – The Mighty Ox & How NOT to Handle Mucking the Sheep Pen

The Mighty Ox   I always wanted a pony growing up. I’m a good rider, and I trained hunter/jumper. I’m also good at using a horse to round up, drive, and cut cattle. I was never horse obsessed, but I was definitely horsey. So, I was excited to get my first horse. Then I wasContinue reading “Friday’s Flock – The Mighty Ox & How NOT to Handle Mucking the Sheep Pen”

Monday’s Musings: Self Speech 

It’s been a busy Christmas day, and things are finally quiet enough to get today’s post done. Since it’s been so busy, today’s post is a quick video. I’ll be expanding on this topic of how we talk to ourselves over the next few weeks. Happy Christmas, Moriah

Monday’s Musings: Stories We Tell

What are the stories you tell? Are they true? Or have you bought a lie at the cost of your heart, the collapse of your soul, the shrinkage of your emotions?

Sunday’s Sassy Stitch and Spin: Busy as a Beaver 

We are blessed with an abundance of wildlife here at Serenity. We regularly see deer in the woods, squirrels, the occasional coyote and timber wolf, turkeys, herons, song birds, hawks, and even bald eagles. We have a possum living under our house named Otis. However, living on the creek we get to enjoy the engineeringContinue reading “Sunday’s Sassy Stitch and Spin: Busy as a Beaver “

Monday’s Musings: The Mask of Kindness 

The Mask of Kindness  Play nice with others. Think before you speak. Share. Be kind. We all remember hearing these statements as children, and some of us may even still hear them as adults. So, we split the last piece of cake, or we allow someone to step in line ahead of our loaded cartContinue reading “Monday’s Musings: The Mask of Kindness “

Sunday’s Sassy Stitch and Spin: Deep Freeze

Winter has finally arrived to our little cove and driven me inside for the yearly hibernation. We aren’t expecting a day over forty degrees until March or night above freezing until April. I don’t know how our northernmost neighbors cope, but around her we snuggle in and wait. Oh, I’ll still be out to seeContinue reading “Sunday’s Sassy Stitch and Spin: Deep Freeze”

Winding up Wednesday: Spinning Oatmeal Girl

The Fleece  This past February I helped out on shearing day at my neighbor’s place. She graciously gave me a salvageable fleece with problems. The fleece has been in storage until recently. This particular ewe had a skin infection that caused skin flaking and small scabs throughout the fleece. However, it was mostly on theContinue reading “Winding up Wednesday: Spinning Oatmeal Girl”
