And he wanted to take a photo with me when he picked it up.  And he promised to send me a photo of where he hangs the painting.

Two years ago today Mamie came to live with us.  (See that here.)

She was four years old and came in like a little whirlwind.  She has some treat aggression and a bad toy aggression problem.  But after a few months all that got worked out.

Now she runs our household.  She is the littlest one but every one “minds” her.

She is very demanding….especially when it comes to playing with her toys.  She loves to fetch.  And we love her so we “fetch” a lot!

So here’s to Mamie.  We are looking forward to many, many more good years with her.

Enjoy the many faces of Mamie as we celebrate her today!!!

Here is one more look at images from the Pioneers & Primitives Retreat this past weekend at Sassafras Farm in West Virginia.  Maia spent some time with us.

There are lots of great photos that attendees have been posting.  Take a look here to see many, many more.  And in case you want to join in on all the fun we will be offering this same Retreat once more this year on Oct 11-12.  There are just a couple of spaces left so register right away.

CITR Buckets 1 CITR Buckets 2The second day at the Pioneers & Primitives Retreat at Sassafras Farm (home  of Chickens in the Road’s Suzanne McMinn) was just as busy as the first.  The attendees made bread, Burnt Sugar cake, trimmed goat hooves, clipped chicken wings, completed their potpourri and painted a bucket!  Busy, busy day.

Great job everyone!!!

Day 1 of the Pioneers & Primitives Retreat was a great success.   We made candles, pick supplies for homemade potpourri,  made corn cob jelly, milked the cow and painted a lovely folk art painting.   What could be better than that?   Oh, I know…Day 2!  Stay tuned…..

Back at Sassafras!

I am back at Sassafras Farm for the September Primitives and Pioneers Retreat.  Today we will milk the cow, make corn cob jelly, pick supplies for potpourri, paint a folk art painting and make taper candles.  Are you tired yet?
And that is just the first day.  I will get lots of photos to share tomorrow. That is if I am not too tired.
