Keeping up with the Holfelders


Hiya friends! Kirstin here. We post about our animals and our projects all the time, but we try to keep our selves out of the discussion. But it’s time to get real. Just kidding, but I do want to give you an update on what’s going on in our lives.

I’ve been having fairly nasty chest, shoulder and neck pain, possibly related to my posture when I spin and crochet, or perhaps just stress caused. I actually took a fun little trip to the emergency room where I discovered that I am not, in fact, having a heart attack. What I am having, no one can really tell me, but I’m making some progress with a chiropractor.

Mom has an injury, possibly two, to her leg. She has a bone spur that is tearing at her Achilles tendon, and swelling in her knee of an unknown origin. The doctors put her in a boot and did a bunch of tests, and we know it isn’t something life threatening like a blood clot, but the details are still foggy.

On a more positive note, we’re preparing for a 10 day trip to Maui! The whole family (including Grammy) is off on a grand adventure on August 1st. This will be our third trip to Maui, and we’re all really looking forward to it.

We all went to Maui in 2004, where I found my favorite place in the world. This one.

So that’s what’s up with us! I know we’ve been slightly less reliable than usual, and I’m not making excuses…well. I am making excuses. So bear with us as we juggle these things, and thanks for your support.

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
