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.

YAY for summer!! That place sounds like a dream(guess it is since the developers have taken it over). My parents live at the other end of North Carolina, now those summers are wonderfully cool. I wish we were there now.

Happy 4th!!!

Beautiful post.

I wonder how my kids will remember summer? We live in San Diego and have a pool in the backyard, so summer lasts a long, long time.


I have thought of you so often lately, Lauren. I, too, don't fare well in any sort of heat and can't imagine how you stand it down there! I realize you have air conditioning, but geez it's hot!
When the thermometer starts upward from the low 70s, I start complaining about the heat. No a/c here...just have to do things early in the morning then sit in front of a fan all afternoon. Thanks to my celtic ancestors I do real well in dark mossy woods living on milk, cheese, meats and fish. Green veggies are the dill sprinkled on the salmon. :)
Happy 4th to you! I hope it was a BLAST!


It was wonderful reading your memories of a beautiful time and place!
