George can do no wrong…

George can do no wrong…

     George was my first cat which means she holds a special place in my heart.  Although she hates the just about everyone and all the pets but Sheba, we have come to an understanding.   George doesn’t eat me and I only pet her when she asks.  When I pet her it is only between the ears since past the ears is the eat me button and I will never pick her up.  This arrangement works well for…

The Odin

The Odin

     I am always in search of the perfect dog toy.  I look for sturdy well built toys that won’t destroy my house.  Its always a plus if they are food puzzles.  While christmas shopping I found this wonderful toy!  The Odin is a interlocking Dog Treat Toy that is also dishwasher safe.  My labrador loved rolling rolling this toy around and being rewarded for her efforts.  My border collie chose the more intelligent route…. hold it and yell…

Shhh…. We Hunting Monsters!

Shhh…. We Hunting Monsters!

I woke up early before the sun had risen, dressed in my warmest winter gear.  Packed up the truck with my bow and arrows and headed out.  Walking to my tree stand was very peaceful and calm under the stars.   I reached my tree stand and climbed up, I was ready for a beautiful day.  I watched the sun rise which was truly beautifulwonderful.  The forest was alive with little critters scurrying about stocking up for winter.  I had…

The toast test

The toast test

     I was perusing photos today and found this gem.  This proves that not all chaos created in this house is always entirely Jack’s fault.  Jeff and I decided on christmas eve one year to test the theory of toast landing butter side down or will the cat land on his feel.  I picked up this enormous orange cat and Jeff tied a buttered piece of toast to his back (note that we used festive seasonal ribbon).  It was…

Lemons in the living room

Lemons in the living room

     I have an unnatural ability to kill houseplants.  My husband loves to make jokes when I bring home plants or he buys me plants that they are so pretty and it is a shame that they have to die.   When I told my husband I ordered a lemon tree off amazon he looked at me a little funny.  My cute little lemon tree arrived in the mail and I was so excited.  We went to the garden…

Catzilla

Catzilla

     When I first met my husband he invited me to go home with him to New York for christmas.  We were both currently living in Oklahoma at the time.   When I met his mother she absorbed me into the family immediately, like an ameba making me feel like one of her own.  I suggested to Jeff that we should build a gingerbread house because I had never built one before.  We had so much fun building our…

Its all about the name!

Its all about the name!

     Its time for you to meet all the members of Cacia Farms.  We name our pets with nice strong good names and yet, that never seems to be what we call them daily.  As our pets grow and their personalities shine they get many nicknames to match their personalities.     Meet Aengus this is our border collie he comes from Ireland so we spelled his name the Irish way.  We never call him Aengus.  Aengus quickly became…

Master Built Sportsman Elite Smoker

Master Built Sportsman Elite Smoker

We have had our smoker for about  4 months.  We love our smoker so far and have done 2 turkeys, 2 separated meals of salmon, at least 4 rabbits and some chicken.  The smoker is easy to use and monitor as well as large and spacious for those larger items.  Master Built Smoker made their shelves removable and adjustable so you can easily fit an 18 pound turkey with chicken or a whole rabbit in at one time.  The only…

The struggle is real…

The struggle is real…

     I finally convinced my husband last year that we were in fact going to get a border collie.  Well,,, neither of us had owned a purebred border collie before.  We had a border collie mix but he seemed to lean more towards to lab side.  I remember growing up watching my Papa’s herding dogs work the cows. I thought  that it was so amazing that such a small creature (in comparison to the cow) could move so many…

Angry Pot

Angry Pot

     I tend to cook when I have things on my mind or if I’m upset.  This is one of my favorite recipes that has come out of this type of cooking.  I don’t start out with a recipe I tend to just pull things out of cupboards and throw things into a pot.  I call this one angry pot as I was in a pretty foul mood when I made it.  However this one turned out amazing. Ingredients:…
