Ironmam 2012 Kona Hawaii

Aloha! This year we got to scheduled our Hawaii trip so that we did not fly out and leave the day of the Ironman world Championships. We actually got a spot to observe the athletes finishing the event. The energy was amazing,the athletes were of every age and race,county,and physical shape. Some were cancer survivors, living with cancer, amputees,and other dissabilities. Young and old I walked away from this event knowing that no matter how bad I think things are.. if I have the spirit and determination to do something. With dedication commitments and training... Yeah lots of training.. I could do it. Funny though.I don't want to do a ironman .. I would however like to go snowshoeing. In Hawaii  I love going barefoot.


We loaded up our camper and headed for Yellowstone this past September. It was a amazing trip. We loved just sitting to watch the buffalo herds. Not to mention the wolf,the eagles and the scenery. Aaahhh nature!

Growing our own!

A bountiful garden is a blessing. We get organic goodness for me to can,bake,dehydrate and to eat fresh picked organic vegies out of the garden. Here ate some pictures of our bounty. Next year we ate planning to double our plantings.

Our chickens are finally laying

After 6 months of feeding and Ken building a very nice henhouse we started getting farm fresh eggs... Yay!

Thankful at Thanksgiving

I was so Greatful that this being our first Thanksgiving here on Idaho that some of our family was able to join us. Justin and Christina with the kids were here, Blaine was home from college,and my sister Tracy and her husband Bill made it up from Nevada. It was a fun week of football,thriftstore and antique shopping. We chased the chickens, painted rocks with Autumn, laughed until my ribs hurt as well as reunited my childhood cousins with my sister and O and all our family's got to meet for the first time!...,we ate feeling very blessed!

Missing in Blog actipn

O.k. I'm guilty as charged. My life has been extremly busy. And about to get bussier. One more of our wishes were granted. We have been wanting a Australian Shepherd dog for years. We lucked out. Volunteering at Canyon County Animal Shelter gave us the opportunity to get first chance at adopting our Ginger. She is a two month old Red Merle. We have had her for two days, so far so good. She is a good girl with a huge personality. We look foward to seeing her grow.

Winter is fast approaching... so I have been sooooo busy here.

Harvesing the garden and not to mention all the herbs. Tinctures to make, soaps to set to cure...  I do love my life here on this little plo...
