I am so far behind on the things I would like to blog about, it's not even funny. I don't really know why I haven't been blogging. I have more time during the winter than I do in the summer, but it seems like I have been extremely busy this winter. I think perhaps the winter farmers market is zapping some of my free time away from me.
One thing I want to blog about is Christmas 2010 at the cabin. It was memorable, as usual, and I have some things to report about it. Those of you who were there, know that I need to do some select editing before I share all the stories of what happened. That seems to be taking me a little time to accomplish.
But one thing I can share and probably the most beautiful thing is Dan the Man's nephew's dog, Izzy. Thomas got Izzy I think 10 months ago. She is absolutely breathtaking.
I don't know how to accurately describe Izzy's beauty to you. She is as beautiful as the snow is white. She is as gentle as a snowflake falling softly to the earth below. Her blazing blue eyes take your breath away just as the coldness of a winter day does.
I'll let the pictures describe her in more detail for you. Remember to enjoy them even more, click on the picture to see a full screen view and hit your browser's back button to return to the blog.
I grew up in a small Western Nebraska town, Mitchell. My stepfather was a piano tuner and my mother was a legal secretary. I feel like I grew up under normal circumstances, what ever normal is!
I have lived several places and have held many different occupations from my first job, working at a doggie grooming salon, to fast food joints, waitressing at a country club to family diners, ski lift operator, administrative assistant, restaurant manager, piano tuner, bank teller, para for SPED kids in junior high school, construction worker, to my husband's hired hand.
My husband and I married in 1996 and have four boys. Nick who is currently stationed at Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico, serving our country in the United States Airforce, Colton who is currently attending South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, Chris who lives in Kearney and works for Charter Communications and finally Skyler who is a senior at Morrill High School. We own and operate our own family run business, Open A Bar 2 Ranch, LLC which is an all natural beef operation and a pastured poultry operation.
