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 .

Pussycat Pussycat ,where have you been?

No not to London to visit the Queen. But I do love that old rhyme . The above pictured kitty did go somewhere though,to a new home with my cousins
But as to where I have been? Well the Emerald City ,just like I said! 
Dad and I flew to Seattle last weekend to visit his sister(Auntie Peggy, and Uncle Brian  ), my cousins and to attend my cousin Murray's wedding .
And we had a wonderful time . 
I will just let the pictures speak for me here 
Uncle Bill , Auntie Peggy and my dad. She was a happy lady to be standing there with her brothers 
 All dressed and waiting 

 I think we clean up good!

It was a wonderful trip and I am so glad I went, but I was glad as always to come home, there really is no place like it !
Stay safe

Sounds like a nice time with your Dad and family! A trip to see family is worth the time - especially when you get to visit a beautiful city too!
