Highlights … way up high, and slightly off to the right, no back a bit, there!

So, as fellow bloggers know in the Windows Live Spaces Community, it is very fun to dip your toes in the proverbial Blog Ocean and see what others are blogging about.  This inevitably leads to surfing sessions that take you tangentially further and further from whatever your original query would have landed.  This can be delightful as you tune in to whatever blips on your curiosity radar vie for attention.  It’s also the perfect Mercury Retrograde activity for us Virgos (rule by Mercury) as a time of RE-connection, RE-trospection, RE-membering, you get it.  In that vein of thought, I dove back among my favorite blog entries for some neato pics from our life progressing towards Paca Pride, the Guest Ranch.  Enjoy them below!

    I was trying to forget about the retrograde, but remembering with you was a lot of fun.  Paca Pride is going to be a huge success.
    Blessed be

    Hi There:
    Are you able to tell me who it is in that picture that I asked you about?
    Blessings,
    Diane

    Hi Magick,
    Which picture is that? From one in a previous entry?

    Hi Paca Pride,
    Thanks for the visit and comment.  You sure have put a lot of work into your place and into this Space.  Very pretty building you have there.  I like turrets.  Are the yurts just for summer or are they year round.  How do they stay warm?  Have you made any sweaters from the wool yet.  What should I call you?  I hope your day is going well.
    Peace,
    ~Truly

    Hi Truly,
    I\’m David, author of this blog. 🙂 We are hoping that we\’ll be able to offer the yurts year round since they will eventually have heat and electricity (stemming from the power lines we just had run).  It is really fun to stay in a yurt with snow on the ground.  We\’re thinking there may be families out there that want to plan a Thanksgiving reunion that might love the idea of a yurt family getaway. Also, during the fall and winter season there are many people who love to go cross country skiing and snow mobiling.   First we are hoping to capture the traffic from companies looking for off-site meeting locations.  We are only 50 miles from downtown Seattle; making us a fairll easy place to get away to without having to drive long hours to get there.
     
    No sweaters yet!  But I am looking for an electric drum carder so I can process the fiber we did harvest!  First I need to clean it, but even so I think it should be fairly easy to process.  Eventually, we\’ll join a cooperative to sell our fiber to.
