There's No Place Like Home!

Never was a quote more true! After six days of travel I was so glad to be back home in my comfort zone. I did have a ball at the Maryjane's Farm Fair 2009 and met some great gals. But, oh, did I miss home!

So, let's get caught up. My little miniature horse baby had a rough time for his first few days with us. The adjustment was hard on him, but he pulled through with flying colors. Because of his orphan status, I gave him the name Oliver Twist. This sweet, little fellow follows us around the farm...stopping to graze on his favorite clover flowers. He definitely knows he is a horse, and does not stray far from our other horses. I think he is going to be a great addition to Bee Haven Acres.

My garden is lush and green....unfortunately, much of the green is due to weeds. Oh my, the rainfall that we received this summer and my obvious pre-occupation with other things around the farm has caused my garden to go wild and crazy. I suppose if I have a small harvest this year I will have to be satisfied. There is always next year!


Construction continues....just finishing details and outside decks. I will take pictures today and post later......

Hello Bev,

Talk about having the best of both worlds! Having the livestock to raise and enjoy while enjoying the added bonus of having your own personal veterinarian. :0) That spells heaven in my book...

Glad you enjoyed your trip but I do have to agree with you....there really is no place like HOME! :0) Glad you are back safe where you belong.

Glad to see you home again!! Can't wait to hear all about your trip though. I directed the musical Oliver Twist about 7 years ago--one of my best shows ever thanks to an extraordinary group of kids. Now, I will always remember your little orphan.

Love the name you gave the horse. He is so precious. You have a very fancy scarecrow there. Too bad it doesn't scare away weeds.
