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.

You can keep your dadgum sunshine, Lauren! Thank you, I had more than enough of the brutal mile-high rays when we lived in Colorado. The sun is so much gentler here, and we have glorious RAIN ... don't have to water the lawn ... moss grows on trees [imagine! I'm still wondering at it all]. Slather on that sunscreen when doing farmy duties, now, don't forget.

I'm still reading ....


Yes, indeed, we are more subject to the vagrancies of the politicians here, and I hate it! But I am not willing to move to AZ or Indiana (the other state with more sense), so I guess I have to put up with it. And to think that maybe Benjamin Franklin came up with the idea -- I thought he was an intelligent man!


Here, here! I admit I'm one of those can't-take-it-any-more-way-too-much-sun people. When monsoons start up I am so glad to see a cloud I feel like dancing! And I always have to explain to visitors from out-of-state to either put sunscreen on, come inside or, at the mimimum, turn around so the other side gets just as red and crisp.


Good words.
