Time seems to get away from me this time of year. No, that’s not really true. It’s always getting away from me! We’ve officially been at our ranch a year now. Busy is just part of the package with property and animals. I suppose I have neglected this blog and all of you in the process. My 2018 goal will be to do a better job of keeping everyone updated.
Having 3 mini horses, 2 mini donkeys, 2 mini fainting goats, 12 chickens and 2 ducks (plus our long-time four dogs), has been a learning experience and I am constantly learning. I tend to question everything and look to solve all the great complications along the way. Without electricity, how do I keep water from freezing? That is a question I hear from several people in the same predicament. There are a lot of so-called remedies for that. So far I haven’t found one that truly works. I have an invention I’ve been kicking around. I am an idea person however, and have no clue how to take my idea and have someone else turn it into an actual product. Everything takes money too, so I have to pick and choose where it all goes.
Now we’re settling into Christmas. I have everything bought and wrapped, except for stocking stuffers, which literally get stuffed into the stocking unwrapped. I buy for a dozen people for our house which includes kids and grandkids. That does not include parents and siblings. When all the gifts are under the tree waiting for them to show up, it’s a sight to see!
May all the joys of the Christmas season bring smiles, laughter, and blessings galore!
