Well, you know you have fallen behind on your blog when the most recent picture on it no longer resembles the animal that is residing in your garage!!! My ticks are so different looking it is amazing, they are almost Turkeys... and if I had a working camera right now I could show you...and I am typing this from a precarious position atop my freezer...but technical difficulties aside; I couldn't let my Royal Rebels go another day without an update!
Life at The Royal Ranch is never a dull moment...since I last spoke with you all we have taken in another rescue llama named Russel (no worries, introduction to come...), we have lost our potential adoptive home for two of our boys, but hopefully gained homes for four, possibly even five! We have planted many seeds both literally and figuratively, I hope...and I am still working on simplifying.
Although I am running today, as I have my final dentist appointment, which you can read all about here; all in all this has been such a wonderful experience, but boy am I glad that all of that driving is over! Anyway, since I am pressed for time this morning...I wanted to lay out my next few posts...for all of us. That way I am committed to writing them, and hopefully you all are looking forward to them.
First and foremost, I am so excited to write about our new son Austin and our adventures into Legal Guardianship. This has been such a rewarding experience for us and not that I think every family should go out looking for some kid to try and "save" or something, because that is not at all what Austin is to us; he is a member of our family. But, really this story is worth sharing, and if it could encourage someone else to do the same thing...well even better.
Also, I have been wanting to post about some of the gardening things I have been doing and trying and testing. This is between doctors appointments, my middle son turning 15 and needing a drivers permit, oh Lord yes, you heard that right, and dentist appointments. My point being that a pretty busy person can squeeze in some garden time...even at 9,000 feet in elevation...even in April!
Last and certainly not least...my sister has been diagnosed with breast cancer...wow...just threw that one in there didn't I? Well, I've sort of had a, okay really had a hard time figuring out how I want to talk about this. So give me a few more days and that might be the last on the list....But know that my sister is one Hell of a woman and handling this with such grace and dignity that it is amazing. She has DCIS and will be totally fine after undergoing a double mastectomy. Sort of an oxymoron, right?
Well, from atop the freezer, in snowy CO...finally...I am happy to report that hopefully we are back on track...maybe not daily...remember we are trying to simplify here (LOL), but at least we have things scheduled, right? So come back for some great pictures of my new son and my old son and their Prom dates (thank goodness Dad figured out how to get them off my phone!)...hopefully by then I can get my camera fixed! It's been a really long time since I've said it, but make a miracle today!
