I admit it. I confess. And, to Kroger stores everywhere, I am sorry. I, like many of my Drowsy Water Ranch counterparts, am a baked good snob. You see, it all started so innocently. In the summer, we just show up for lunch and dinner and end up getting spoiled. For those few, fleeting weeks that we welcome families and friends here at Drowsy Water Ranch, we also welcome to our diet homemade baked goods: homemade cinnamon rolls, homemade breads, homemade cookies, cakes, and pies.

Ken is currently slaving away to get this year's Drowsy Water Ranch newsletter to the printer in the coming week.

This is Lauren: summer wrangler and winter office assistant extraordinaire. I'm filling in for Gretta this week while she sunbathes on powder white beaches and swims in clear, turquoise waters.I'm not jealous at all. I like to think that mud season on the ranch is a lot like a tropical paradise.Now, I was originally going to devote this post to my fantastic wrangling abilities, my gorgeous horse, and my humility.
