Best office assistant ever! 

Best office assistant ever! 

 I spent several hours today with Olive trying to make sense of our filing cabinet. Armed with my label maker, box for burn items, and stuffed Kong toy for Olive we dove in.  Olive as always was an angel and happily chewed while I spread papers all over the basement. Once everything was empty I started labeling. I began with bills we pay monthly followed by other things we need to file.  After I was done I felt so relieved…

In a perfect world…

In a perfect world…

In a perfect world Jeff and I would be sitting in our great room on our super comfy couch with a roaring fire watching a epic movie.  Our dogs would be splayed out on the hardwood floor in front of the fireplace, with kitties scattered roosting on the beams of our log cabin.  Outside it would be gently snowing those huge beautiful flakes of snow.  Our open kitchen would be filled with the smell of pot roast cooking and apple…

A little to the right…

A little to the right…

As a kid we lived in Wisconsin for about 6 years. Anyone who has lived in Wisconsin knows not only about the frigid winter but also the loyal cheese heads. That right cheesehead, 50 % of the population is probably always wearing yellow and green on any given day. We lived in a very small town, and didn’t have cable. The wind kept blowing the antenna off the side of our house, so we sat it in the attic.  In the…

Jack jack’s throne

Jack jack’s throne

We moved Gus’s recliner into the dining room so that I could paint the living room trim. Usually this chair belongs to Gus so he can look out the window in comfort. Jack however has decided this comfy new chair in the dining room is his new throne. He has been camped out in this chair for days now.  Jeff leaves for work just as Jack is settling in for his day in his throne and is still there when…

Dixie

Dixie

We have two adult breeding Giant Chinchillas here at Cacia Farms.  I love my girls Dixie and Annabelle they are both wonderful rabbits.  Annabelle tends to be a bit more sensible than Dixie she is quiet and doesn’t mind being handled or me handling her babies.  Dixie on the other hand is much more emotional about life in general.  Dixie hates being picked up and handled and does not appreciate me touching or going near her babies.  The one great…

Horses are good for your soul 

Horses are good for your soul 

It has been a very stressful week for various reasons. I have also been extremely busy and have been unable to see my horse. I went out this morning and spent some quality time with him. Ace is always up to something and he was full of love and personality. He listened to all of my complaints about life and it was so calming to just brush him.  I am very thankful for Ace and often don’t know what I…

Painting

Painting

I am in the process of painting all of the trim in our house.  You might think oh that doesn’t sound exciting…well you don’t live in my house!  Painting anything in my house is something you embark upon at your own risk.  Not only will you have 3 dogs and 3 cats “helping” you paint, if you sit on the floor and slide to the next space you will also get splinters.  I’m 3 rooms into painting the trim and…

Mushrooms…

Mushrooms…

Let me tell you about mushrooms.  I love mushrooms in my salad, I love mushrooms on a veggie tray.  I really love mushrooms to dip in veggie dip or humus.  You know where I hate mushrooms? My backyard and inside my dogs.  Gus had a run in with mushrooms last fall while my mom was in town.  This led to my mom helping me dose my dog with hydrogen peroxide (my husband calculated the dose for me).  Gus puked and…
