Alpacas

There are many things that I miss about rural/small town life. All of the things that used to get on my nerves are the very same things that I miss. That sense of community, people helping one another, and driving down the road and tooting the horn at people-not because of some driving blunder they've committed, but because you know them and they know you.

When I start to feel a bit homesick for my old life I read a few farm blogs. My favorite is Life on the Farm. With their very cool dog (a Komondor), their alpacas and living in Canada-this couple is living my fantasy.

Some other farm blogs that I peruse are:

Arctic Musings-this isn't a farm blog, but an interesting blog all the same

Brambleberry Farm

The Farmers Wife

Farmgirl Fare

Fragments from Floyd

Linda's Backyard Musings

Morning Ramble

Nature Mom

Ontario Wanderer

Roundrock Journal

Rurality

Sarah's Homestead



"Give fools their gold, and knaves their power; let fortune's bubbles rise and fall; who sows a field, or trains a flower, or plants a tree, is more than all." John Greenlea Whittier

Thanks for coming by and visiting the high Arctic and for the link. Strangely enough this is the second time I've heard Alpaca in two days.

Hi Libby,

I was going to comment earlier but it has taken me a good long while to work through these links, would go to one and then keep reading and reading and reading -- they are all super! Good writing and great photos -- some outdo my fav CuteOverload! Especially all of the little goats playing llama=mountain. Thanks again, your round ups are the BEST!
