5 things about reese in the wilderness

So I've done all of this talking about me, and have failed to introduce to you our little 1 year old mountain princess.

How rude.

Afterall, she's the one who really runs this joint. So without further adieu, here are five items of business about the Rooster-Roni.

1 - Her favored mode of transportation? Your standard ATV. Although if we really twist her arm she'll take the side by side.

2- She loves that every day is a bring your daughter to work day. We step outside our front door and we're immediately in Deek's office. Feeling sad? Let's visit Daddy. Need a break? Let's visit Daddy. Want to operate heavy duty machinery? Let's visit Daddy.

3 - I think she dreams about having vast lawns of perfectly manicured grass to play on. Gravel just doesn't have the same effect. Especially since she's still crawling.

4 - If anyone ever looked cuter in an oversized sweatshirt I wouldn't believe it.

5 - Sometimes I wonder how she feels, having her perfect little rose colored world uprooted so drastically. From weekly dates with both Grandmas, endless supply of adoring aunts, uncles, and cousins,  and the wonder of a hustling bustling surrounding, to be hurtled into a world with just mom, dad, the dog and miles of quiet mountain forest. Does she miss it all? Does she even remember it at all? I hope she can feel how abundantly we love and adore her, and that it keeps her human interaction canteen full between visits home. Never in all the world has such a little being triggered so much love.

So that's it for today. I'm off to cook and clean and polish off another muffin. As in, my 6th for today. 2 bran muffins and 4 pumpkin chocolate chip with cream cheese frosting to be precise. And it's only 2:00. Whoever said home cookin' was better for you, never stepped foot in my home. But since it's already in the teens at night up here, I think I could use a little winter padding before the real cold begins.

Yeah... that's what I'll tell myself. It's all for the sake of hard, brute, survival....


Survival never tasted so good.
