The lonely blog...

Yes, it is sad and true.... this blog is very, very, very lonely. There were once good things happening here, but it has been so long ago now, it is hard to remember. For anyone who still checks in here now and again, so very sorry for the lack of material!!!

Remember, though.... you can always head on over to "the life and times of Fireguy" blog, where new posts occur by way of Gordon at least on a monthly basis, and sometimes more frequently! :-)

For now, Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Chrstmas, and Happy New Year... perhaps we will pick up again in 2011?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

While the Wife's Away.....

As you all can see, the Little Bearfoot Farm wife has been away for quite some time now. It doesn't appear that she will be here anytime too soon. So, for you all to still be able to keep up with goings on of Little Bearfoot Farm and the family, please follow the following link to Gordon' blog, which is current and up to date!

Instead of returning here regulary in hopes that there will be something new posted for your reading pleasure, you can instead follow Gordon's blog :-)

Sorry for the inconvenience, but hopefully this will allow you all to keep up regularly with what is happening in our lives and on our farm!!! :-)

Thank You

Hi everyone,

I just want to take a moment and personally thank each and every one of you who reads my blog. I know I don't post daily, or even weekly, but I am so blessed to have my faithful friends who continue to check on me and patiently wait for me to get something exciting posted. Ok, maybe not "exciting", but obviously worth writing about. I am thankful for all of you and you have each blessed my life in one way or another.

New background

Hi Everyone,

It just seems that time passes so quickly and I don't spend as much time updating my blog as I should. I finally decided to change my background, so here I am. Life has been busy around the farm, starting to get ready for Spring. We have been spending a lot of time at the gym working out almost every day. It is a long, painful process, but I hold out hope that one of these days I will actually start to see some progress. I am feeling better and working out longer and harder, but have only dropped 22 pounds in three months time. I can't wait until I notice a difference in my body size, not just my workout routine!!! I know it will come. I just have to be patient and persistant. If anyone wants to join me, I am usually at the club between 8:30 and 9:00am Monday thru Friday. Hope to see some of you there. Let's sweat together!!!!!

Anyways, I really hope to spend more time updating, but who knows. Life is busy, right?

Until next time.....take care!!!

If you are in the need for pork, we have an abundance! We have about 5 pigs worth of meat in our freezer. Lots of roasts, steaks, chops, ham steaks, boneless ribs, sausage and bacon. Let me know if you would like a price quote on any of the above. It is farm fresh, naturally raised, and tastier than you can imagine. We eat pork all the time, but it will take us years to get through all that we have.

Come on, can't you just smell it?.....Pork roast in the crock-pot, with potatoes, carrots, celery, onion simmering next to it?....

Oh boy, I better go get a roast and put it in the crock-pot. Guess what we are having for dinner tonight?

Oops-ya got me, Tarah!!!

So, the other night the kid's wanted pizza. We decided on Westside in Lynden. I offered to go get it while Gordon got the kids ready for the evening of pizza and movie watching. As I was approaching the stop light at Front and the Guide, I looked over by Westside pizza at the Chevron station, saw my friend Tarah standing outside her Ford Explorer playing with her beautiful long black hair while waiting for her tank to fill up. Her back was to me so I thought I would scare her by racing up behind her to say hi. I pulled in, squealed into the space behind her ready to honk my horn. She turned around with a "deer in the headlights" look on her face and I realized at that time it wasn't her. I scared the pee out of some innocent gal just because I thought it was Tarah. I was extremely embarrassed. I rolled down my window, told her I was sorry and that I thought she was someone else, then told her to have a great evening. Ugh!!! I hate it when my friends are able to embarrass me even when they don't know it!!!!!!!
Note to self: Don't offer to go get the pizza-it might embarrass you.

Rollerskating Princess

Yesterday was President's Day. The kids didn't have school, Gordon wasn't at work, and Grammy and Papa are here for a couple more days. We decided to go rollerskating in Lynden. Or should I say Gordon, Evan and Sierra rollerskated while Papa, Grammy and I sat out and watched. I love to rollerskate, but my legs and feet hurt from my workout that morning, so I decided not to skate. During general skate time, they always have a time for The Hokey Pokey, The Limbo, Boy's speed skating, Girl's speed skating, The Dice Game, and any other fun things to do on rollerskates.
Sierra decided to get in line for the Limbo. It started out with about 30-40 kids. By the time they were down to the last three rungs, it was only about 6 kids. Sierra went right thru and didn't touch the pole. All of the others knocked the pole down, so Sierra ended up winning. She got a "skate dollar" to spend at the store. I believe she ended up buying sour cherry candies and a grape flavored lip gloss. Here is her victory win!!!

Mickey....or Nim....or, yes, Mickey!

We adopted a cat from our great friend Diann. She had too many cats running around her house and asked if we wanted to take home "Fluffy" for the kids. I said yes, on a trial basis, knowing that my family has never been huge cat fans and I wasn't sure how the cat would do in our house. You see, we already have two outdoor cats, but Sierra really wanted an indoor cat. Someone she could sleep with, watch tv with, and play with. So, "Fluffy" came home with me.

He has turned out to be the BEST cat ever. Who knew?

We have gone thru a few names in trying to find the best name for him. "Fluffy" just didn't fit his personality. We tried out "Rocky", but we already have a goat with that name, so it didn't last either. We finally settled on "Mickey". I playfully call him "Mickey Mouse".

Gordon and Brad are early risers. They get up in the wee hours of the morning, so they spend a lot of play time with "Mickey". He is quite the character in the mornings. Gordon and Brad have lovingly given him the nickname "Nim" (as is Nimrod).

He is a great addition to our family and we have been having a lot of fun with him.

Busy-ness and saying goodbye

It has been crazy busy around here trying to get all the puppies ready to go to their new homes. Last week, we sent green ribbon girl (Blondie), to the airport to fly to her new home in Texas. That same day, Diann came and got her two puppies (purple ribbon girl and red ribbon boy). That left just 4. The next morning we headed off to Portland to deliver two more puppies to their new homes. Orange ribbon boy (Wrigley) went to our awesome friends Albert and Julie. We are going to show Wrigley and use him as a stud dog later on. He is absolutely gorgeous!!! Blue ribbon boy (Zues) went to Ty and Christina. We went to high school with Christina and her and Gordon reconnected through Facebook. She saw our puppies and decided she wanted one. So, they both went to Portland. We spent the weekend with family and had a mini-vacation from home and returned on Monday afternoon. Tomorrow, we are taking pink ribbon girl (Faith) to meet her new parents, Rick and JoAnn, at the Twassen ferry terminal. They actually live on Vancouver Island, but are taking the ferry across to meet us. That leaves yellow ribbon girl. She doesn't have a new family yet. We are in the process of finding someone who will love her forever. Know of anyone who wants a beautiful yellow lab girl to love?
With the puppies almost gone, it is now time to do a little spring cleaning around here. I think we might have to call in the big guns and rent a dumpster!!! My kids like to collect things. It is time to go through their bedrooms and throw away the broken things. Anybody wanna help?

Speaking of new kitties.........

So, we finally decided to get the kid's the inside cat they have wanted for awhile. Gordon and I have never been cat people. We have always loved our dogs. The two farm cats we have outside have proven to be the best cats ever. We just love them. They like to come in at night and snuggle on the dryer and sleep the night away, then go back outside for the day. Our new kitty is a hoot! If you walk by him, he swats at you and tries to get you to play. The minute you sit down anywhere, he is in your lap wanting some attention. He also likes to sit as close to the keyboard as possible when we are on the computer. He is a lot of fun.

But then.....Gordon came home from work the other morning and asked me why there was a kitten in the puppy kennel with the pups. I didn't know there was, so I went out for a look. Sure enough, there is a kitten that is hanging out with the puppies, cuddling up with them, playing with them. It won't let us get anywhere close to it. It hisses and then runs, but continues to stay in the general area of the puppy pen. So, I guess for now, we have a ferrel kitty that came out of nowhere that is hanging out for awhile. Who knows, maybe it will be a nice kitty and become a farm cat also.
NO, we are not changing into kitty people. We will ALWAYS be dog people, but we have room in our lives for a couple of cute cats!!

Evan and Sierra's new toy

Ok, not really a toy. This is Fluffy. He is a barn cat that was at my friend, Diann's. He came to live with us because he is such a loving cat and Diann just didn't have time for four cats. Fluffy is an indoor cat. He loves playing with the kids. His favorite past time right now is to hide under the bed or couch and attack your feet when you walk by. He is really fun and the kids are having a great time with him. The bonus for me....he came potty trained to a litter box. Yes!!!!

So, today I am having a great hair day. I have been fighting with my hair for a long time now, and it actually looks great today. Problem is, Gordon is at work, Brad is at work, and the kids have school. There is no one here to share my great hair day with!!! What is up with that?!?!?!?

So, I decided before Evan and Sierra left for school, I would have Evan take a picture of my hair. Ok, don't look at me, just my hair. It's not like it is a great picture of me, but check out the hair!! Yeah!

Yes, I am a sad, weird gal who is enjoying her hair today. The things that make a person happy!! Jeesh.

My crazy kid

Evan has enjoyed having a mohawk since he was little. Every once in a while we cut it and start over, but lately he has wanted to keep it. We started out with purple. Nooksack pride all the way!!!
Then he went red for the holidays.

Now, we are blue. Why blue, you ask? We don't really know other than it is a nice color.

Today is the day

Today is the day that I try to get back into posting on my blog. I apologize to those of you who try to follow it. I have been overwhelmed with winter schedules and have slacked on posting. Obviously from the previous post, you can tell that even Gordon is hounding me about it, so, with that being said......

We have a new litter of puppies that was born the day after Thanksgiving. They are almost ready to go to their new homes, so I thought I would share a couple of pictures.

I will do my best to continue to update and post as often as possible. I don't promise daily posts, but I will try to post at least a couple of times a week. Don't give up on me!!! Thanks for your understanding and I hope all of you are doing well.
