On Golden Pond

On Golden Pond is the name of Rylies Ranch as well as the movie my name came from...

The following is our story of August

Marwyn the fairy that a tops Rylies Ranch

Ty turned 7 and one of our B day traditions is that I go all cake boss on myself and attempt to create whatever they request! Ty asked for a Nintendo DS cake

and for the record... fondant is like way too hard for my cake baking skills!

What I love about Ty is his kind heart and sweet soul, he is as swift as a fox and sneaky as a badger, but as you can see he loves his great grandad and is always happy to see him.

Engrossed in his fossil book :) and cape!

and his super cool where's waldo book

Happy Birthday Ty

and four days later I journeyed to Alberta....

for something...

books, no i didnt fly to Alberta just for books :) I received them while I was there, I also recieved love, warmth and family.

what I saw when I woke up, I also saw a familiar face that I hadnt seen in many years...

this is an awful pic of me I look like a giant yellow wambat! however i was happy so here is the long awaited pic...

and the yellow wambat is back!

Jeff and my Uncle Russ

Eric my cousin, who is also Russ's son is also in Nursing school and our last memory of each other was having a farting contest and eating fudgsicles! good times

I gained insight into a part of who I am... Some interesting facts

I am apparently Irish and didnt know it, odd because all my kids have Irish names

My anxiety and panic attacks are infact genetic! woohoo I am not completely to blame

Curly hair and a love of food are in abundance

My love of books is shared

My thoughts such as world hunger and charging inmates to be in jail were enjoyed by all

I have also come to learn that the here and now are what matterss, what happened 15 years ago cannot be changed, it can however haunt you every single day. I am choosing to not let it haunt me, rather embrace family members I thought were lost, to build new relationships and to grwo as a human being.

An old cabinet, some paint and Schleich animals, above is the pond

the chickens and kitties:) oh and Azlan somehow got herself preggers while I was away!

The rabbit hutch, one of my personal favourite sections

The cows and of course a donkey

Work horses and some woodpecker art :)

The whole Ranch! I am quite proud of myself, it also comes equipped with a Land Rover and horse trailer:)

oh and strep for 3 weeks, 3 types of antibiotics and....... now I have trush! i am too cool for words right now.

This makes me happy. Love the barn, the update with your dad, the amazing cake, all the fun books you have to read while recovering on the couch.
I am so glad we are best blogging friends, especially since I don't have so many close by friends at the moment:)

I'm glad you had a good time in Edmonton and that everything went well. You don't look like a wombat by the way, I thought you looked really cute.
