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.

Desert: hot. Must remember that.

I loved A Wrinkle in Time (I'm secretly Meg). Did you see the somewhat recent version on DVD? Pretty good (but too scary for the Pint).


I LOVE Madeleine L'Engle! I've read all her books I've been able to get my hands on. And a phrase in one of them (not the children's books) is one of my favorites for explaining frustrations caused by non-living things: "The animosity of inanimate objects."

And I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one in the "no shorts" club. And swimsuits? You've GOT to be kidding!! (But you have a pool; YOU must do swimsuits....)


You are not alone! Last week we were stoking the fires and putting on three layers of clothing to go out to feed. Today I had sheep who were way too hot! I can't shear yet as I know we'll get back to cold again...well, maybe...hopefully...later.
