Who or What is She?

  • She calls herself Lauren but is also known as Mom, Gramma, Lar, and, once upon a time, Peach.
    An ex-suburbanite who moved to the wilds of the Sonoran Desert and decided to raise fiber animals, fowl creatures, 3 halflings, and one pint-sized farmer without a clue as to how. Join Lauren as she learns how to file alpaca teeth, shear a horny goat, raise 3 teenagers and 1 grandchild while cooking dinner and doing the laundry with her other six arms.

Merry Christmas


Wishing you a belated Merry Christmas. My 2008 bring you good health, less physical and emotional pain, peace and prosperity. In the end, Lauren, I wish you enough . . . you've sure paid your dues this year. Thank you for this wonderful blog --- it has lifted my heart many times --- and I've cried bitter tears with you other times. But all in all --- it's what life is really about and it's nice to get back to a place where life is really the focus. Big hugs to you, Girl.


I hope yours was full of love, human and non-human. I am close to pulling my hair out here with one six-year-old and a pup; I bow to you, oh Superwoman! Keep it up in 2008; we're all rooting for you!


Lauren: wow, how lucky you are to have such healthy beautiful offspring (and animals). I hope the new years brings you lots of time with them and No more coyotes.
