Wow, 2018. What a year. Posted on Dec 31, 2018, 8:12 pm
Ding, ding. An entry a day, all month long. Yay.

Long Day Posted on Dec 31, 2018, 7:12 pm
I got up before 5 because I was wide awake and took the girls for a nice long hike along the coast. It was glorious.

Gold Star Posted on Dec 31, 2018, 7:12 pm
Iím so glad the fence held the girls in.

Plan G Posted on Dec 29, 2018, 11:12 am
So the doggy day care idea has failed. That was a waste of money! Dang it. On to the next plan.

Cluster%$## of a day Posted on Dec 28, 2018, 12:12 pm
If it could go wrong, it went wrong.

Work, work, work Posted on Dec 28, 2018, 12:12 pm
I thought Iíd have time to do a quick run of crap from one place either before or after work, but I was mistaken.

TQ Posted on Dec 28, 2018, 12:12 pm
Today was the most Monday-like Wednesday possible, I think.

Mele Kalikimaka Posted on Dec 27, 2018, 1:12 am
Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a bright Hawaiian Christmas day Thatís the island greeting that we send to you From the land where palm trees sway Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright The sun will shine by day and all the stars at night

Bread Posted on Dec 27, 2018, 1:12 am
I delivered it all over to holiday celebrations where I stayed as little as possible so I could move on to the next place.

In the water Posted on Dec 25, 2018, 8:12 pm
So I had the choice to work today, or get in the water. I chose the water. Hopefully, I wonít regret that!

Pau, now Posted on Dec 25, 2018, 8:12 pm
Weíve had fun, fun games of hide and seek until I think everyone is pau now. I know I am.

Check Posted on Dec 25, 2018, 8:12 pm
Cheesecake baking job, acquired. Check!

Cut Myself Some Slack Posted on Dec 20, 2018, 11:12 pm
Yes, my short term memory sucks, but Iím not yet a year out from the last surgery, and so it still might get better.

This is My Monday Posted on Dec 19, 2018, 11:12 pm
I had a perfectly lovely day at work, prepping for the upcoming week, and baking lots and lots of bread.

Magical Day Posted on Dec 19, 2018, 12:12 am
Met a new friend, who looked like he walked off a Romance Novel cover.

Goodnight Posted on Dec 18, 2018, 1:12 pm
Icelandic Sheepdogs eating coconut shells in Hawaii. How did I get here again?

Cheesecake Posted on Dec 16, 2018, 10:12 pm
The cheesecake came out really well! Not bad for not having sugar in the house, so I used brown sugar instead. And duck eggs, with extra yolks as well.

Mahalo Posted on Dec 15, 2018, 9:12 pm
Someone noticed! Mahalo is the Hawaiian word for thank you.

Good and Bad Things Posted on Dec 13, 2018, 11:12 pm
On happier news, today is the birthday of one my cutest litters.

Me and my pack of bitches Posted on Dec 13, 2018, 3:12 am
But I really wanted a holiday card with me in it too, and though I was pretty sure I wouldnít like any of them, these will do!

The First Stake Posted on Dec 12, 2018, 11:12 am
Iím getting the first estimate for a platform on the land. I havenít made any decisions yet about what will go on top of it, but itís the first step. I could do a yurt, a cabin, a tent, a real house, who knows what.

Catching Up Posted on Dec 12, 2018, 12:12 am
Last night, I rejoined an online community that I quit a couple of years ago, so all day have been receiving hellos from folks who didnít know where I was or what happened to me.

Tropical Plants Posted on Dec 10, 2018, 10:12 pm
Hibiscus are my favorite, I think. I have eight or so varieties. A vanilla bean orchid! Two different types of bamboo. Poinsettia is a bush here in Hawaii!

Doggy Daycare Posted on Dec 10, 2018, 7:12 am
Can you believe Gaela was squeezing though those slats and jumping down a story to get out?

Double Rainbow Posted on Dec 9, 2018, 1:12 pm
Lobster pizza and a double rainbow. Must be Hawaii.

Reading and Writing Posted on Dec 9, 2018, 1:12 am
At some point, I realized that I can write when I read. If I stop reading, I stop writing. And for some reason, when I read, I seem to need to write.

60 Percent Posted on Dec 8, 2018, 3:12 am
One of the doctors last week did some tests on my short term memory, and I got the results today: 60% on almost every one.

Delivery Day Posted on Dec 6, 2018, 11:12 pm
I needed to leave by 6, set my alarm for 5, and was woken up by Disa barking at something at 5 minutes to 6.

Out of Whack Posted on Dec 5, 2018, 11:12 pm
My blood work looks like someone with a very bad eating disorder ó electrolytes all out of whack, blood sugar of 35, low on every vitamin and mineral possible. Oops. If I only had an appetite.

Sun Therapy Posted on Dec 4, 2018, 10:12 pm
Vitamin D for the win!

28 Years Posted on Dec 4, 2018, 12:12 am
Frank and I were married 28 years ago today.

Wake up, sleepyhead! Posted on Dec 17, 2015, 7:12 pm
Hey, the milkbar is open!

6 Boys, 1 Girl Posted on Dec 16, 2015, 6:12 pm
Decisions, decisions!

Teakettles Posted on Dec 14, 2015, 9:12 pm
Two day old puppies sound like teakettles.

Squeaky Ball Addicts Posted on Dec 10, 2015, 9:12 pm
I need to buy stock in the company that makes these damn balls.

Puppies on the brain Posted on Dec 9, 2015, 9:12 pm
Guess the date and number of puppies.

Chick Therapy Posted on Dec 8, 2015, 9:12 pm
I should absolutely NOT start up my incubator. Right? Right.

My gaggle of geese Posted on Dec 7, 2015, 9:12 pm
I've had my flock of geese for almost 8 years!

Goat proofing Posted on Dec 6, 2015, 9:12 pm
Goat proofing ain't for sissies!

Gaela's Getting Close Posted on Dec 5, 2015, 7:12 pm
Last time, she wanted nothing to do with it, and insisted on being in a closet. Having five black puppies in a dark closet in the middle of the night? Not my funnest time, let me just say.

Petting Prys Posted on Dec 4, 2015, 8:12 pm
The first chore of the day is the best chore: petting Pyrs.

Camper Coop Posted on Dec 3, 2015, 8:12 pm
We hauled all our critters from Vermont to Missouri earlier this year in a 17 foot camper that a neighbor had sitting in his yard, mostly gutted. All it needed was new tires, and it worked out really well. The theory was that this year would be figuring out the new space and plotting and scheming about what to build and where.

Bringing home the bacon Posted on Dec 2, 2015, 9:12 pm
Every day that I work, I save all of my kitchen prep and food that would otherwise go to waste and bring it home to the critters.

Still Fermenting Posted on Jan 12, 2015, 12:01 am
I’m a big believe in free-feeding. I do not like it when I have hungry critters. So I try to have food available to them all the time, and they free range, so no one should ever be hungry.
