My attempt to move from Southern California and create a happy and sustainable urban homestead in North Dakota, with some musings on life with deaf dogs, a gluten free spouse, and the occasional mischievous garden gnome. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy.

Hiatus Over

Good morning loyal readers.  It's been a few weeks since my last post and I'm feeling guilty about not writing more frequently.  We've been super busy here at the old North Dakota homestead: canning, making bread and butter pickles (more to follow in another post), tending the garden, staying cool in the summer heat and humidity, pulling lots of weeds, making gluten free cookies (more to follow in another post also), tackling some big yard projects, taking puppy to more obedience classes, and traveling for work, so it's been wing dinger of a busy summer so far.

I'm hoping that a couple of cute puppy pictures will whet your appetite and tantalize your senses until I get some additional posts up.  
A sleepy Shaak Ti after a hard days work, which actually involved no work at all, just playing. 
Puppy using her new toy (from the sale bin at Petco where we get many of our toys) as a pillow during a recent sudden napping attack.

Excitedddd for the upcoming posts about your harvest and baking ventures!

Our favorite place to buy toys is the Dollar Store. They last about the same amount of time as the ones at pet stores!

Puppy has napping attacks, too? I thought it was only me. Actually, Carl dozed off in his car (in the driveway) the other day. One foot on the ground, the other still holding his lunch pail, with his head on the steering wheel. OH, boy, he was fine, just tired.

You've been very busy. I love bread and butter pickles. We have dill but no pickles. Can't wait to see what's been going on at your house. Staying tuned. (And any time you want to come weed, you are MORE than welcome!)
