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.

That Pint Sized Farmer is the most adorable little man I have seen in ages! I have 3 grandsons (9,7 and 5) so he'll have someone to play with when he comes to visit the Bluff Country...

Feel Better....


So glad to hear from you and to know that Magic is bringing you such comfort. The Pint is the most adorable little man. Just want to hug every picture of him I see. Been thinking about you and sending you best wishes and good thoughts!


Magic's up close feet made me remember that birds are the living descendants of dinosaurs. How lucky you are to own a dino descendant of your own!

I have been keeping an eye on your blog and was so sad to read that you are ill. I keep hoping that one day I will read an entry about how you woke up and felt one hundred percent back to normal—that the gold worked its magic!

Upon reading about your illness and how difficult things have been for you, I have to admit I felt badly… that maybe you had misgivings about taking on the responsibility of taking care of a young house duck. When I see that he is bringing you comfort it puts me at ease.

I will never forget the day we drove out with Rebekah to bring Magic. You have a beautiful family and we felt warm and welcome. You are in our thoughts and we are extremely grateful for you!
