So the next day, Mom called for all farmhands on deck to test our snow for snowman worthiness.
Ace had no problem forming the perfect “snowball” but it was a “snowman” Mom wanted.
After a proper snowball fight, we had one more distraction to accomplish. In honor of MaryJane’s fall from grace the day before, we thought we’d try to make her feel better.
Okay, back to work …
hmmm … Our snowman might not be photo worthy either.
Too bad. We’ll have to play in the snow again next week once it warms up. 20 degree snow, even with the sun warming it, doesn’t lend itself to the legendary Frosty we were hoping to create.
In honor of National Hat Day, we wish you a wonderful one!

So while Ace, Kim, and I were truckin’ down two-lane highways, thrifting, setting up our glampsite, taking down our glampsite, and getting our honky-tonk on in South Dakota … the animals we left behind were awaiting our return. Rascal, our design studio mascot (tortoiseshell cat), was being taken care of by Ace’s roommate Andy, also a farmhand here (Ace, Kim and Andy are roommates at Kim’s farm), and Daffodil, my canary, was offered space in Carol’s office, with my husband taking care of her on weekends. (Kim brought her Border Collie, Riley, on our trip.)
Part of the job of taking care of my canary is feeding her a deluxe daily diet of fresh veggies and fruits, soaked grains, hard-boiled egg yolks from the bigger of her kin, AND gathering up her gorgeous blue eggs she lays 3-4 times per week. (Yup, she’s pampered.)
A few days ago, I posted about Ace’s lunch. She discovered a clever little way to take salads to work, croutons and dressing included. Here is what the complete version looks like …
Yesterday afternoon, around 4:45 p.m., as we were saying our routine goodbyes in the design studio, Ace looked out the window and said, “we should …
I received a call late at night a week ago from the emergency room. Alicia, our ‘Ace’ photographer, had just walked in the door of her friend’s house when his nervous pit bull bit her … in the face! Horror of horrors. Thankfully the bite wasn’t too deep and is healing well. While at work this week she received a little gift from some really thoughtful family members.
