Welcome to our world. Here you'll find out about our family life, our alpaca ranch, our explorations in healthy cooking, and anything else that strikes our interest.
It's been hot a lot this summer. It was 96 degrees on the day that our alpacas were sheared. We've had unusually hot days since then, so they're probably very glad that they lost all that hair, although Erik looks regal when he has a two year coat on him.
It's hot enough that I've temporarily abandoned my experiment of eating food storage style foods. You need to boil water and it's a process that creates a lot of heat. That's another consideration when you're storing food for emergencies - what do you do when it's too hot to cook?
We're a family of three. We raise alpacas and chickens. We explore different ways of living healthier and happier. We love to share what we learn and to learn what you care to share.
