Today, the sun rose on a crisp and clear fall morning. Heavy lavender hued fog rested in the valleys. I pulled my knit hat down over my ears while the autumn wind tumbled golden leaves across the drive.
Momma here, Dad wants me to tell everyone the holidays are right around the corner. Recently, as he watched me knit winter scarves out of our alpacas’ fiber he told me how special this time of year is to him. Our extended family is always here at the ranch, and the hours spent together are precious and cherished.
Our family is fortunate we work together as a business. Because of our business interests, Cliff House Alpacas, we will be able to spend a great deal of time together this Holly Day season, and our holiday season has already begun. We’re preparing for two upcoming winter season craft shows; both shows are in November. Kirstin is felting ornaments, Aunt Geri is busy knitting hats and other accessories and I’m busy with winter weight scarves.
