Ya Blink and they Multiply


Here is the little no name gelding halfling that moved in a few weeks ago.

Meet No Name. Suggestions welcome!

And I blinked and this little mare appeared this morning......

And surprises in the herb garden...


And if ya look REAL close you might find the little bumble visitor too.


Staked out the new fence lines and plotted out the manure pile and accompanying compost barrel. Talked endlessly about the finishing of the studio, preliminary garden plans, mucking out the root/storm cellar, and where we are going to set up the road side vendor's booth next to the front deck under the shade trees. All while watching Altoid run laps through the pastures.


Spring has definitely sprung here in the Banana Belt of Montana. Now I need a nap. lol


Got the animal care set up for my hospital stay in a couple of weeks. So my worries there have also been put to rest.

  • Today we talked about anti-inflammatory nutrition and how important it is for prevention and healing of auto-immune disorders as well as chronic pain. We also talked about the little time-saving technique of scheduling a prep day (or two) of nutritionally packed food options to take the place of the disease producing fast and processed food habits many of us have fallen into. As we prepare to expand the website to accommodate our new focus and direction, here is one of my favorite dishes that covers all of the above. The basic recipe is easily substituted and is also a great solution to leftover bits and pieces. I make these ahead for a quick breakfast, snack, or sack lunch option as they are also great cold. Ingredients 2 T extra-virgin olive oil 1 1/2 c finely diced red-skinned potatoes 1 c diced red onion 3/4 t salt, divided 8 large eggs 1 c shredded smoked cheddar cheese 1/2 c low-fat milk 1/2 t ground black pepper 1 1/2 c chopped fresh spinach Directions Preheat oven to 325F. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes, onion and 1/4 t salt and cook, stirring until the potatoes are just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool 5 minutes. Whisk eggs, cheese, milk, pepper, and the remaining 1/2 t salt in a large bowl. Stir in spinach and the potato mixture. divide the quiche mixture among the prepared muffin cups. Bake until firm to the touch, about 25 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before removing from the tin. To make ahead : Individually wrap in plastic and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. To reheat, remove plastic, wrap in a paper towel and microwave on High for 30 to 60 seconds. Use your imagination with substituting ingredients. Almost anything and everything goes. Any ingredients normally thought of for an omelet is perfect. This recipe was based on one on by Carolyn Casner. Enjoy!!! And feel free to add thoughts and ideas below in the comments section. Once we get the revenue rebuilt for the website following the media drama snafu and healing cave scenario we will be adding the online cookbook and formulary features of the integrated virtual respite journey here that we call Mystik Mountain Home. Recipes and discussions about food (growing, preparing, and preserving), herbal blends (aromatic, incense, teas & brews, and culinary mixes), and oil blends will connect to the Temporal Transitions and Customs & Traditions sections. Plus a whole lot more.
  • I am going on a journey through the book "Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain". I will attempt to share what I learned, and I'll submit here for you a visual progress report of my journey to "being able to draw". It is not a problem of the hand, but a problem of the eye, or rather, of visual perception. One thing I have learned to be vital is that ability to transform your state of consciousness to that which is akin to "flow". I'll talk more about that perhaps in a future article, but we all have been there; that state where there is no anxiety and you are completely absorbed in what you are doing to the point that time goes by without you realizing it.... Once I learn to "draw", and teach myself the art of writing (formal penmanship), no telling what will come out of it. I have a few ideas.................
  • I opened up my phone to check email. The clock said "3:33". AGAIN. Eeeeeeeesh.........
