Welcome to Fern Valley

Here in central Alberta prime farm country,my husband Martin and I work together raising beef cattle and Appaloosa horses. Fern valley appaloosas have long been known for their quality of temperament conformation and color.I have recently rediscovered a love of writing and have published 2 collections of poetry. "Telling Tails" and Tails Trails and Campfire stories" . I look forward to a future spreading my wings as an author and as a horse woman .

Awe shucks !

 Thanks to Lisa at Laughing Orca Ranch.
I have received an award !
Thanks Lisa!
With the award come some rules. I am to share it with some of my favorite blogs (lawless soul that I am I will share it with all or any that want , all of the blogs I read are favorites)
And to tell you 7 things you may or may not know about me .

  1. I am shy, no one really realises this when they meet me as I usually force myself to smile and walk right in. But inside I am a basket case .
  2. I am very close to celebrating the silver anniversary of my 20th birthday . and I still blush  at the drop of a hat
  3. I hate my feet , I took ballet as a kid, and between that and arthritis ,I have one toe that is really messed up and will eventually need surgery , either ,intensive repair or removal . I have looked at the options , and frankly ,9 toed cowgirl ,is the way I will go. Way faster recovery !
  4. I love to cook. But not just for me ,I find it very hard to cook proper meals when hubby is away . And I really enjoy having people over for a meal so I can really make something good !
  5. That said , I rarely bake , don't often make cookies ,or cakes ,NEVER make pie (I am terrible at pastry ) but I do make really yummy bread , and cinnamon buns.
  6. I don't sleep very well, toss and turn , and when I have a cold I can snore the paint right off the walls!
  7. I have an evil streak, a bit of a dry sense of humour . I don't let it out much anymore , but if the world could hear what I am thinking ...
So there you have it , 7 things you might not have known , or wanted to about me ! lol
Grab the award and have a go if you like ,I am always happy to get to know you all better .
Calenders are done and ready to order , and so are my Christmas cards with Shutterfly so I am finally staring to catch up, I think!
Stay safe!

No need to be shy. I consider myself lucky to know you (or at least the part of you that you show through blogging.) But now you've got me wondering about that evil side...

#4.....Is that an invitation? :)


Knotty Dogs said...

I've rattled the windows and snored the dog out of the room, but I don't think I've ever made the paint peel off the walls! I now have a new goal!

GoLightly said...

Yeah, the toe part I didn't need to know;)
I hate my feet, too. Ugly things..
