Life on an Arkansas Farm-Greeting the New Year and remembering the Old Year

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

The old saying that time goes faster the older you get must be true. I was surprised to see that the last time I wrote a blog was in 2011. I missed 2012 totally.

As I'm sitting here at the computer, the dogs are coming in to say "Good Morning". The younger pack follows my son around and the elder pack follows me but they all will come to say "Good Morning" when they get up. I wish all people were as loving as the dogs are.

I'm really glad 2012 is over. We've had 3 of our furbabies go to the Rainbow Bridge; Sara, Kiana, and my lovely Gypsy Rose. Thank goodness I still have the dogs, donkeys and all the cats. I cannot imagine how lonesome it would be if I didn't have all the others.

Weight loss in 2012 was non-exhistant. I stayed on a plateau all year. I hope to do better this year. Diet wise I did fairly well. I guess I just need to get more exercise. Yea, right!!

The rain we had yesterday is gone and I'm really ready for some warmer weather. So are my donkeys. They sure hated the rain and snow we've been having the last couple of weeks. We had to coax them out of the barn when it snowed. They really hate to get their tootsies wet.

I'll restart introducing our dogs in the coming weeks. Can't forget the cats either.

Have a great New Year, everyone!

Hugs, Linda

    Your blog name caught my eye...I live on a retired Missouri (Ozarks) ranch (that I grew up on).

    We had snow, not rain but I bet you're proud of any moisture! Our ponds are still FEET below where they should be. Happy New Year!

    I just read your blog (I think for the first time) and I love it. I also read the older ones and all I can say, PLEAAASE blog regularly. This is the kind of inspirational story that people need to read.
    I also found that I do so much better in reaching my goal if I blog a little every day, even the little things, because that way I get lots of input to encourage me from my Spark friends.
    Have a wonderful 2013 and give all your donkeys, dogs and horses a kiss from me. emoticon

    Wishing you a wonderful new year, Linda! You and your magical menagerie - and your family!!!

    Lucy's my only child === but she's enough - a bunch of love in one tightly packed little package on four little paws.

    Can't wait to meet your dogs.....

    Hugs,
