Certain days are just like that...simply perfect.
Nothing special happens but our hearts are light and joy can be felt in every cell of our bodies. Songs are constantly in our heads and our feet are dancing every step we take.
I try to be very conscious of those days and make reserves for the rainy days that are bound to come now and then.
Today was such a day.
I spent time with my yarns and dyes. I also made lots of smells good in the house. And I even baked.
A wonderful walk around our fields with the alpacas watching and following me.
 Coco and Fiona have grown so much over the winter. They are now 9 mths old.

I hope Coco keeps that curiousness as she matures.
I love these animals. They are calm and gentle.

A face everyone can love!
I'm so envious of those eyelashes.


Fiona's mom, Alicia.
I love this shot.
Alpacas make the most of every day.
I'm so thankful for what they bring to my life.

On another note, I want to tell you about a new blog out in blogland. Dairy Free and Delicious is a cooking blog for those of us with dairy allergies.
Sara, the blog's author and cook by excellence, has posted several recipes that I will be trying in the next few weeks.
Tonight I made her Raspberry Lemon Cupcakes...mmm...delicious!
No icing on mine but the taste of raspberries with lemon and almond extract make the best tasting cupcakes ever!

I hope your weekend brought you joy!


  1. Your alpacas are so precious. However, Fiona is BEAUTIFUL! She looks like a Fiona. She looks royal. I can only imagine how much work running a farm is, but as a city girl, it looks so relaxing. Having to care for my 2 Great Danes, 2 Yorkshire Terriers, 2 birds, and 5 turtles, I feel like they keep me busy everyday.

    Anxious to try that wonderful looking muffin. I used to be a vegan, LOVED IT, but a few weeks before going to Russia I decided I better add dairy back into my diet. That was 7 years ago. Wish I hadn't. I have been a vegetarian for 20 years.


  2. What clear photos. That muffin looks like I could lick it off my screen!
    Glad your dream of living amongst these creatures in your tranquil setting is being realized.

  3. Thank you so much for mentioning my blog. It has generated some traffic, this has been such an exciting experience!
