At some point in time we became a repository for wayward animals and birds…this is the latest addition.
Meet the world’s meanest goose. Seriously this thing is EVIL.
It will bite the metal trying to get through that fence at you.
It scares the hell out of all of us but the man.
He pins it to the ground with a deer horn so he can keep it from attacking him in the field.
I admire it’s tenacity though, and it makes me laugh as long as there is a fence between us.
My girl and her love celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary this week…I don’t even know what to think about that. 5 YEARS?? Freaks me out that I have a child who has been married for 5 years. Of course we were all young when we began but STILL.
I don’t know about you but a new shirt and pretty necklace can make me feel like a whole new woman…and my hair is freshly washed which usually means something special is happening. Fun fact: I HATE washing my hair. It takes forever to dry. Now that most of my days are spent tooling around this joint I’ve gotten kind of worse about washing it. The struggle is real.
Good thing last night was a special night because my hair desperately needed a washing. 🙂
It was Wild Heart Dreamcatcher class night in the Art Cabin! WOOHOO!!
These ladies rocked it with drills & metal and sticks and leather.
I truly love being able to do what I do.
My girls were in and out, the oldest came over to take pictures, I get to spend time with amazingly cool women and provide a space for them to chill for a bit. And it all happens in this place where my heart lives. It was one of those nights that started with doubts about all of this business actually working, and ended with so much gratitude for the opportunity to try. Grateful for kids and farms and, most of all, for an amazing man who has put so much hard work into creating a beautiful place for me. I’m a lucky girl.
Last night I made a nummy drink that is super easy and you can find it here.
I also had this delicious fruit dip that is also super easy and would be perfect for a potluck!
Both of them can also be found on my Pinterest…if you don’t follow me, you should. I am addicted to it and am a very prolific Pinner of cool stuff. I really am.
Have you heard of Save-On Crafts??
It is my new favorite thing. It’s a good thing/bad thing. Good because I can order good stuff for classes, bad because I can also order things like this…
Is that not just the prettiest thing?! The cabin desperately needed it. *wink*
I read this list of self-care ideas this week and wanted to share it because self-care is SO important and sometimes we need a gentle reminder to do it. So this is your gentle reminder. Do something just for you, please.
One of my favorite ways to self-care is to spend time listening to creepy murder podcasts…how is that for light and happy? I have a little bit of an obsession with true crime stuff. This is my favorite and the guy has an Australian accent which really just makes everything even better, right?
One of the other ways I self-care is cooking comfort food and this sloppy joe recipe of Pioneer Woman’s is sooo yummy. I browned the burger and let it finish cooking in the crockpot while we were outside working in the yard this week and o.m.g. I ate it for 3 days. Speaking of Pioneer Woman…I have a love for all of the things at Walmart that have her name attached to them. Aaaa…I just want to buy them ALL and serve every single meal in the garden with fresh flowers, table cloths, and pretty dishes!!
Well, my friends, I hope you all have a week filled with all of the good things. Don’t forget to do something to stay in touch with that wild heart of yours! Take a walk in the sun, sing really loud, dance a little, and create something…anything…that makes you happy.
I’ll leave you with a picture of Bob because Bob makes everyone happy.
He’s the most gentle animal on the farm. He’s also really lazy so it comes easy to him. He literally lays around all day in the sun. He’s got it good.
