Introduction Every day is an adventure at the Big Red Barn. Fun is the name of the game and as far as I'm concerned - "It is All Good!" I am married to a wonderful man, 4th generation farmer of the McNeilly Ranch. We live amongst the beautiful rolling hills of the Palouse where we raise grain & cattle. In my life I've been blessed with 3 wonderful children and two adorable grandsons. I started this blog out of my life-long hobby of writing and also as a way to share various aspects of my life, thoughts & ideas. My in-town job is with a non-profit agency that provides services to the elderly. I'm an avid scrapbooker (click on my blog "The Scrappy Lounge", gardener, cook, food preserver, amateur home decorater & beginning seamstress. I am the owner & instructor for Red Barn Yoga, specializing in private & group classes designed for 'Everybody & Every Body', workshops & cowgirl yoga!
Interests My Family. I enjoy having friends & family over to linger over good meals & drinks, great conversation & wonderful company. Scrapbooking, doing for my kids/grandkids, road trips. Spending time with my husband and helping him with the cattle.
Favorite Music Jackson Brown, James Taylor, Van Morrison era, George Strait, Wylie & the Wild West, Reba & other country artits. Sinatra, Nat King Cole. Sometimes just 'quiet' music is what my mind needs.
