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.

Oh, congratulations!!! How cool is a knitting commission? And how great is cooler weather? We're getting some ourselves today, and it IS so restful to one's soul. Love you!

How cool that you're knitting for hire! And how did you pass me on Tyrone?!? I have GOT to get those sleeves attached. Love you - glad you're feeling better. (P.S. It was 47 here while the kids were waiting for the bus this morning.)


Isn't it great that when fall rolls in there's a change in us as well? We had the equivalent summer (heat, no rain) and are just now getting our first hints of fall (nighttime temps in the 40s). You're cruising with the knitting. I'm looking at gardening catalogs. Still haven't ventured into Pointy-Stick Land yet. Good luck! Eager to see more dyed roving pictures and the Pint modeling his sweater!


So glad to hear you are doing better, Lauren. Cooler on the west side of town too. Let the grrlz out at 6:30 this morning and almost wanted to sit on the back porch a piece myself (it passed quickly and I returned to bed . . . I am NOT a morning person -- that's why God invented sunsets!). Your commission sounds like just the thing to get your fall moving. We will, of course, want an appropriate picture documentary.
