From Montana Rodeos to North Dakota Sunsets!

 Once again it appears I am rather late in posting!  Sorry.  I don't have a whole lot to tell, but I might as well tell what I have to tell. 
 We have been terribly busy with everything lately, but mostly with stuff like general summer ramblings, gardening, and this and that.  Sooo the jist of it is that we have been terribly busy, but don't have a whole lot to tell from it.  The trips we have been on have taken up most of our time, from visiting Grandma and Grandpa on Dad's side, to camp and then back to Grandma and Grandpa's.  I babysat for 8 full days with only 2 and half days in between.  That was an adventure, but once again...not much to tell that wasn't typical for babysitting.

 Then off to Grandma and Grandpa's on Mama's side.  We visited a couple different dinosaur museums on the way, and finally crashed once we got to our destination.   Yay for vacation!!!!!!!!!
Learning to drive a car, gardening, and doing fun stuff like that with grandma is the bomb!  Have a happy summer till the time I visit next!

If Life Gives You Lemons...

 Dear readers, 
   Sorry it has been so long since last posted.  Our life has been very busy these last many months.  Mr. Blueberry Eye's horse Rebel is doing very well.  He has gained wait, not to much, but just  enough.  He is happy in his new home and has been a great friend to Mr. Blueberry Eyes!  School has been going very well!  Nika has not had any "dramas" for a long while, and Duma is as naughty as ever.  I don't think I will ever understand how one single kitty can be such a brat. 
 I have worked on a few projects this winter like the scarf above.  It took me a while to finally work on knitting and mastering it before I could start it, but I finally did!  I really enjoyed making it, and had fun with it. 
 Mr. Blueberry Eyes has been working on a new art project.  He collects old and new pennies and creates fun pictures with them.  The one below is only one of the many fun ideas he carries out.  As you can see, he uses the differant shades of new and old pennies for defining the lines and shadows.  He has done pictures of coffee mugs with steam streaming up out of the mug.  He even did one of his violin and an out line of a true to size person.  We have really been enjoying his creations.
 Last fall I made some pumkin bars from a recipe a friend gave me.  It turned out amazing and is a new family favorite.  I haven't made any since, but hope to soon.  They turned out really moist and yummy, something that doesn't usually happen when I make things.  Needless to say, I usually burn the things I try to make, or else accidently put a wrong ingrediant it. 
             I have been playing my guitar quite a bit lately and have been really enjoying it.  I have been working on a song I am working on in my drama class.  It is coming slowly, but surely.                                 
Nika is such a little snuggle bug.  If she didn't look like a dog, I think some people would be fooled.  She is so funny, and so very spoiled.  I don't think that I have ever seen such funny little dog. 
                                        Well, that is all for today, I will try to post more soon.   Tiarra

The Unrebelious Rebel

Recently, Mr. Blueberry Eyes got a new horse!
 He is a really pretty horse, dark brown with with a black tail, mane, and stockings.  Or, in other words, he is a bay.   His name (Rebel) doesn't fit him at all.  He is really sweet and not rebellious. 
 We brought him home about a month ago.  He is twenty years old, but in pretty good shape. 
He was at the low end of the feeding order at his last home, so he is kinda skinny.  We are working on getting him fattened up.  So far he looking pretty good, much better than he looks in the picture.
Mr. Blueberry Eyes (and I) are very happy to have him in our family.  With him it takes our animal count up to 23.  Hope you have a great week-Tiarra

Our Last Trip of 2012, The Coast

     Hello every one!!  Sorry it has been so long since I last posted.  We have been so busy settling in at home, after our busy, exciting, adventures summer.  I will hopefully be posting more about our life now that school is underway and we are finally unpacked.  Not that it took four weeks (the time between our last trip and now) to unpack.  Enjoy!

We had so much fun!  It was a great end to the 2012 adventures of my family.   Although I had probably one of the best summers of my life, I still almost wish I don't have another one so positively filled with...with...with being busy.  Wheeeeew! -Tiarra

"I'm Frolicking, I'm Frolicking"

For those of you who have seen the movie "Milo &Otis" You will probably get the significance in my title.
When I was little "Milo &Otis" was one of most favorite things to watch.   The post I am doing today reminds me a lot of that movie (especially the "I'm Frolicking" part.)
 We just got home from a two and a half week long trip to my great grandma's farm.  Her cat ,Tabby, (the sister to our cat that I posted about a few posts back) had a litter of kittens about three weeks before we came.  There had origanally been 5 kittens, but something happened to the fifth.  We don't know what, but by the time we got there it was gone.
   The mother cat brought them from the barn to the front porch when they were way too tiny to be that exposed to the big St. Benards.  We moved them back from the porch to barn.  That is where they stayed 'til we left, except of course when we brought them out to play with.  Mother cat wasn't too good a mother.  She wasn't horrible, but rather unexperienced.  Afterall, this is her first litter.  She hadn't kept their eyes clean so we had to do that.  They loved it when we cleaned their eyes out with warm water and a paper towel.  The kitten in the picture below loved the eye therapy the best.  We had one that thought it could to without, but for the most part they liked it.  The mother did feed them well, though.  They are the fattest little things you ever did see. 
 We gave them all names almost right away.  I think they seem to fit them also.  The multi-colored one ( above and second to right, beneath) we named Marble.  It fits her perfectly.  The gray striped one (second to left) we named Mist.   Although the way she runs is more like a jet stream, not a mist.  The gray one with the orange dot on her head (farthest left) we named Dots.  And the black and gray striped one (farthest right), Stripes.  Although I have the hardest time in the world not calling him Tiger.  I dont' really know why I just do. 
We had so much fun playing with them.  We were sad when we had to leave them.  They were just too fun to play with.  I am looking forward to when I can go back and see how they have grown. 

                                                    They really did love to frolick. 

                                                             Bye till next time ~ Tiarra

Fun In The Yukon

How are all my readers doing?
We are having a lot of fun in Canada.
   Here is some home made pita bread that my mom made!  We sold them at the Fire weed market here in the Yukon.  They are very yummy.  Mmmmmmmmm! 
 These are some really yummy cookies that one of our friends made.  We sold them at the market also.  Unfortunately, you will have to take my word for how good they are.   Yummmmy!
 This is some strawberry, basil, grape, lemonade.  It is so,so good.  We made it with home grown basil and is home made.  Now when I keep saying that all this is so good, I really mean it!  I'm not just saying it.
   These are dried apricots dipped in white chocolate.  I haven't tried them, but I am told that it is really, really rich.
    This is a leaf coaster.   So far it is the only finished one in a set of 6, but when they are all finished I will sell them.  I have made another set of round ones that are made out of a different pattern of fabric.

     I hope you are all having a most wonderful summer.   TTFN~Tiarra
