It is an early morning

Oh goodness, it is 4 am and I am up and needing coffee in the worst kind of way and wishing that this little mosquito, that keeps pestering me, will find something else to other then keep flying around my ear.  

I guess it is a very early Saturday morning for me today since "Buddy" the Great Dane decided that it would be a great idea to go out after he woke up everyone in the house.

Yesterday I was pondering if I should add some additional herbal tea to my store and was hoping that I might be able to put a shout out to all of you if you all would be interested in that . 

I already grow a great variety of herbs that would be awesome to prepare as a loose tea. 

Maybe there is an herb or two I can add to the many that are already growing here. Either way I would be delighted to receive some input from all you great Local Harvest Supporters.

Wow surprising what some coffee can do I am already getting creative and it is a little after 4 am, weird :)

I wish everyone a grand & creative day

as always, yours truly

Its Friday ALREADY :)

Wow, time sure passes fast when you are having fun.

It must have rained last night a little more, everything is nice a moist and you can just feel how thankful Mother Earth is. All the birds are singing and ready for this wonderful new day.

"Lizzie" my little chihuahua mix 5 month old puppy already has the house upside down . All her toys are all over the house and she is busy trying to get "Schatzie the dachshund, to play with her. She is a trip, always happy , busy finding everything just amazing.

Sipping my morning coffee I am brainstorming what should be first on my "to-do" list.

"Herne" & "Pan" the 2 new angora bucks are surely enjoying it here and really show their appreciation by rubbing noses with me :)

Funny how little animals expect from us and how much they give in return. This is truly something to ponder.

Enjoying the therapeutic life right here on the farm.

Wishing all of you a grand day and hug a goat today ( if you have one)

 Yours truly

Blessed Rain :)

What a wonderful way to wake up this morning and be surprised by lightning moving in and a nice cool breeze. After I let the dogs out for their morning constitution it started raining :)

I opened all the doors to the house to let the clean air in. It has been quite a while since it rained so we are all welcoming this beautiful shower.

As I am writing this I can hear the rain with the wind chimes gently greeting this new day.


Wishing you all peace and happiness and may you be creative today and don't forget to dance :)


Yours truly

Good Morning

It is time to sip my coffee and get started with my day.

I finished shearing the 2 Angora Bucks ( Pan & Herne) yesterday and I am sure that both of them appreciate that very much. They where both extremely matted and I can imagine with this Texas heat, walking around with a "carpet" attached to you , is quiet uncomfortable.

The camelid girls where not really impressed when they meet the Angora Boys, I think they where more like "what the heck is that" and Chrissy (one of our llamas) sounded the alarm call. All of them seemed to be rather interested in checking the goats out.

Today is "Hay Day" hoorah :) Getting hay delivered is so much more convenient and I am very grateful to not have to run to the feed store every week.

I wish everyone a beautiful Wednesday.

Stay tuned

Yours truly

Pasture Maintenance

A beautiful morning to really enjoy pasture clean up. I am amazed how well the camelid manure turns this dry and stoney land into great fertile soil. The ranch is full of beautiful wild flowers and I am sure it is because of the great rain that we had the last few days as well as spreading the fertilizer all throughout the land. Today I have to run into town to get some errands done after that getting some of the boys ready to get picked up tomorrow. I wish everyone a great and productive day Yours Truly Petra
 
 

Sunshine after the Rain :)

 

What a wonderful Wednesday it is. We where blessed with more rain yesterday and today the earth and all the inhabitants here are overjoyed with the beautiful warm sunshiny day today.

The peacock that found his way to our ranch a few days ago seems like he likes it here since he already found a place in one of our large trees that he spends the night in and he is very content with haveing the llamas and alpacas visit daily.

It is a great day to wash and soak more fiber. I also have quite a few orders that need to be filled and shipped. I will get jumping, I opended all the windows and doors so the beautiful energy from outside can flood the house.

Wishing all a super groovy, happy and peaceful day


Yours Truly

A Beautiful Sunday to All :)

Good Morning Everyone

Wow, it is Sunday already. Time is just flying by. I did not get to see the bright moon last night since we had some serious cloud coverage and I was hoping and praying that the rain will find us here on the Ranch. When I walked out this morning to let the alpaca boys out to roam I noticed that it must have rained since the driveway was wet, but I could not tell otherwise since it has not rained for quite a while and everything is so vey dry.

Well the weather forcast mentioned rain in the air for this week :)

Everything is growing so well and I am so pleased with all the fresh herbs this year. They all smell so amazing it makes me smile everytime I pass by the huge herb patch.

We added 2 new member s to our family last week.

Welcome Argus & Hera Peacock. Both are about one year old and absolutely stunning.

Thank you to Robin and Courtnee Benson from Sapaveco Ranches to bless us with a fabulous suri female Llama named Kissee. She is the sweetest girl ever and I can't wait to spinn her beautiful fiber.

You can check out pictures of our new additions on facebook. I will place a direct link below so you guys can check it out.

A Wonderful Harvest To All

TIme just seems to fly. The harvest is already upon us and finally we are blessed with wonderful fall climate. The sunrise and sunset is just breathtaking every day here on the ranch. Although our harvest is sparse this year because of the drought that we endured this summer, we are all working hard to use our resources and I let my creativity soar to find different ways to make our great fiber to amazing fiber art.

It is funny how one hurdle spurs so many different options if you are just open and in the flow of nature.

A wonderful harvest to all.

wishing you

Petra :)
