Bad Chicken Good Chicken

I love my sweet chickie Iggy, but she is driving me nuts! I have expanded the ladies run area quite a bit and fence it with over six feet of bird netting to keep them out off my lawn and out of my soon to be flower area. Iggy however has not gotten the memo, and keeps making her way to the forbidden zone. Every day I look out my back window and I find her happily pecking away at the lawn. OHHH, I get so mad. I run out there ready to chew her out, but as soon as she sees me she runs up to me sweetly clucking. How can you yell at that? She lets me pick her up with no trouble and I get a few hugs in before I put her back on her side of the fence. As punishment though, I put her back in the coop and throw the treats in the chicken run area for the other ladies to get first crack at. Iggy has to make her way back out of the coop and that takes up valuable seconds. That is the worst I have the heart to do to her for being so disobedient. Oh my. Chickens are such naughty, sweet creatures.

Can forgiveness really erase the past and sketch a new beginning?

After losing her fiancé in an accident, Liz Ruthersford flees home and her parents’ pity to seek refuge on a remote ranch in Montana where no one knows about her tragic past. But her safe haven seems to hold troubles of its own. A surprise encounter with Rawson Law, the son of her new boss, makes her wonder if she might have to run again. The cocky cowboy seems to have it out for her, and when they are paired up to work with the young horses, he undermines her at every turn. But cowgirling up, Liz refuses to be intimidated by the handsome man who both annoys her and makes her heart pound with just one look.

Rawson Law appears as though he has it all, yet he’d give it all up for the chance to change one foolish decision five years ago that left one brother dead, another broken, and his best friend incarcerated. When he returns home to discover a strange girl has stolen not only his coveted job with the yearlings, but his status as favorite with his family as well, he resolves to shove her out of the picture and reclaim his life. She might have hoodwinked his family, but he won’t be fooled by her sweet and innocent act.

Though Rawson and Liz fight their mutual attraction, embers of hope flicker to life as they are drawn together by work, fate, and the meddling schemes of Rawson’s younger brother, Bentley. As hearts tangle and twine, will they grasp onto second chances, or will secrets from the past make Liz hit the highway once again?

Terra is shiftless — a werewolf uncomfortable in her own animal skin.

A decade after learning to squash her wolf and flee the repressive village where she grew up, the packless ache still gnaws at Terra’s insides. But despite her yearnings, she struggles against being reeled back into her old life.

To Terra’s dismay, her father and half a dozen of his henchmen finally ambush her and demand her return. Yet they do offer one way out — hunt down her nephew Keith, teach him to shift, and bring the youngster back into the fold in her place.

Problem upon problem piles up as Terra strives to do her father’s bidding. The female shifter has hidden from her wolf for so long that she finds herself unable to change back into canine form, and she also realizes that her nephew is too good-natured to survive for a minute walking in his grandfather’s footsteps. Plus, there’s an alpha standing in her way who’s equal parts enticing and terrifying.

Will Terra be able to relearn her werewolf abilities — and overcome her morals — before her father steals away her hard-earned independence? And as that tantalizing alpha reels her in closer and closer, the question becomes — does she really want to stay away?

Two Forks, One Cake, Best Mom Ever

This morning I was so full from eating all the leftovers from my hubby’s birthday party, I had to harbor seal it out of bed. My one real regret wasn’t all the tasty food my friends made, it was the cake. There is still half a sheet cake left, and I honestly don’t think I have the willpower to resist it. It doesn’t matter if I am bent over in pain from eating too much of it, if it is still there I am going to grab a fork and attack it. So today, after school, I am going to hand my baby bassets each a fork and tell them to have at it. They can eat as much of the cake as they want. No limits. I have only done this once before a few years ago and it was a crack-up. They act like they have just been given the keys to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. They also think I am the best mom in the whole wide world. The funny part is they don’t end up eating all that much. They dive in so fast and hard that they get tired of it pretty quickly. Once they are done the cake looks disgusting, and none of us mind me throwing it out. I also get the benefit of them thinking I am the best mom in the world despite the fact that I make them eat veggies and do their homework. WIN WIN!!
