Meet the Family...

Just a quick little intro to our little household:

This is my husband, Mark. He likes teaching martial arts, camping and hiking, playing the drums, multiple adrenaline-charged activities, giving his wife heart-attacks, giving his younger brother a hard time and various and sundry forms of geekery (see photo)--especially if it involves bunsen-burners and test tubes.


 And this is me.  I love my husband and furkids, camping, hiking, working hard and getting "the cookie at the end", farms, learning in general, coffee (see photo), homesteading projects, reading, organizing, baking (and eating), random acts of goofiness and kindness, campfires with smores, traveling, wine and a plethora of other entertaining nonsense. 


This is us at our wedding at a bed and breakfast up in the mountains last October.
If you don't have a good feel for our general level of wackiness yet, you may now consider yourself forewarned... 

This is Sid (left) and Mika (right); aka, the Brain Trust. 

Sid likes teasing Mika (Moo), drinking from Mark's or my water glasses (he really is rather determined about this), cuddles, chewing on, loving on and dozing on shoes, destroying the upholstery (see photo) and sleeping (he snores). 

Moo likes chewing on Sid, belly rubs, letting us know when her Kong is "broken", running along the fence with the neighbor dogs, trolling for crumbs, rough-housing with Mark, attacking the vacuum cleaner and cuddles. 

Aside from the (poor) houseplants and the spiders in the garage, this comprises
the membership of our strange and wonderful little family here in the House on the Hill.
I feel so very fortunate to have found my own flock of other goofballs willing to put up with my shenanigans.  Welcome to our mayhem, y'all!
