Hello, My Dears.
To quote a friend of mine, I haven’t posted in my blog for months because I’ve been too busy living it.
Whether it’s bottle-feeding a newborn lamb every two hours for the first 72 hours of life because it couldn’t figure out how to nurse its own mother —
or having 9 other lambs born within the following two weeks, and 5 calves in the span of a month (including the spawn of that demon heifer) —
or welcoming my dad for a week-long visit to the ranch —
or whether it was battling the elements in my tiny house on top of my lonely mountain, huddled next to the only heater in my house during bouts of freezing rain —
or road-tripping all the way up to San Fransisco and back within one weekend —
or entertaining a group of outstanding individuals for a glorious day on the ranch with Mass, firearms, and good food —
or taking a trip to the ER for what I thought was carbon monoxide poisoning (but hey, I knocked off receiving my fifth sacrament #anointing) —
or driving up to LA, having dinner to celebrate a friend’s birthday, and driving back all in under 6 hours —
or having my time on the ranch come to an end as I made the decision to move more than an hour north —
or living out of boxes and sleeping on a couch for almost 2 solid months, quitting my remote job, getting employed at my alma mater, and being called to show up early on one of my first days off to oversee the aftermath of a hit-and-run —
or visiting Idaho for the first time —
or meeting, dating, getting engaged to, and planning a wedding with my husband-to-be —
I’ve been a little preoccupied.
But I will transcribe more of my dragonylicious adventures soon. Don’t be surprised if they involve broken ceramics, mouse massacres, and the insanity of HOA development construction.
