Life on the farm has slowed down a little. Soon it will be hay season again but not quite yet. The farm has four seasons. Each season reminds us of how important it is to re-charge.
The farm is a bit wet and muddy at the moment. The robins have returned to the farm this is a good sign as perhaps spring will come early. The trumpeter swans fly over our farm morning and night what a glorious place to get to live.
The farm is full of Sequim mud at the moment. Wow this mud sticks to everything and it makes a bit of a mess. All the donkeys and horses got out today and enjoyed the sunshine, a run and a roll. I worked hard to make sure each bucket was washed clean and all the stalls were tidy. One of the most important parts of owning equine (donkeys, horses and mules) is keeping the farm clean. All living creatures need clean water.
Living on the farm gives us a great purpose. No time be lazy ever. No matter if we are sick with a cold or worse we must take care of the farm and all the animals living on the farm.
Hubby and I are aging this is all part of life. Living with a physical disability takes a certain mind-set to never give up. Most importantly I pray every day to keep walking and moving. God in Jesus Christ name has provided us with this farm and the miracle of my life. In 2010 I survived an almost fatal car accident while riding as a passenger, I did nothing to deserve this disability and pain. My life has never been the same. I live each day with gratitude and peace. I am working really hard to build our little business the “Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC”. God has a plan for all of us. We are blessed every day to get to live on our farm in Sequim, WA.
Each time I feel the need to wonder why? I think why not me? Lots of people have worse things happen to them then what happened to me. God takes bad and makes good. God loves his children, our world, our universe and all the people and animals living on it. We must remember to pay it forward each day and never take anything for granted. Each moment is a gift. The car accident only took a few seconds. Seconds in time that I will never understand why? Yet here I am writing to you when I should be dead. Faith is something we cannot see yet. Never give up and trust GOD, pray and stay the course, run your race. Each person has a reason to be here at this exact moment in time.
As I am aging with this physical disability I work hard to keep moving. The body was built to stay in motion, it hurts to walk and move in the cold so I layer and wear lots of extra warm clothing. In extreme cold I must limit the time outside as my body has gigantic screws in the pelvis. If the screws get cold I am in extreme pain. So the key is not to get too cold.

Proudly Serving The Greater Puget Sound Area, from Blaine at the Canadian Border to Olympia and all of the Olympic Peninsula.
My name is John Plake and I live in Port Orchard, Washington. I would like to introduce you to my business, Home Storage Solutions. I started the business over 11 years ago to serve the Olympic Peninsula, providing solutions to easy and difficult storage and closet problems.
My background is in home building as well as furniture building and now I am able to blend the two together to provide storage spaces (typically closets, pantries, linen and garages) which are not only functional and practical, but are also very aesthetically appealing. I will come to your home and take measurements and then develop a plan that will work for your space as well as your budget.
You may wonder if “custom” means your closet costs more. The opposite is actually true. Instead of having a warehouse full of parts trying to fit to your job; the company I use (www.stor-x.com) is a unique manufacturer and they start every job from scratch which means you get the storage solution you want, without having to pay for the “warehouse” so to speak. When the product has been created exactly to your specifications, it is packaged very carefully and shipped for installation.
I am able to offer a variety of wood grains and colors at a much reduced price. I also offer a line of baskets and tie & belt racks to complement your new closet. The possibilities are truly endless and fun!
Race Deck® is also a product I offer for the garage as well as mudroom floors. If you have ever thought of wanting a painted or coated floor, think again. Since most garage slabs are not prepared for a paint product, they will usually chip and flake in a short period of time. Race Deck®, which is made in the USA, is a durable option for a non-slip floor that you can even take with you if you move! Many colors are available and patterns are unlimited.
I am only a phone call away, and there is no charge for me to come and discuss your storage options, create a plan for you, and give you an estimate. So whether you are just starting or finishing your dream home or taking on a fresh remodel, Home Storage Solutions is here to serve you with your storage and closet needs.

We highly recommend John Plake to you as your organizational specialist. Everything has a place in our new home, this makes our life less stressful. Getting organized seriously reduces stress. I am excited to share my experience with John Plake as he is a small business owner who does what he says. Truly a breath of fresh air to hire Home Storage solutions.
We looked at many on-line DYI projects and well it was not only expensive it was time-consuming and overwhelming. John Plake comes into your home and helps you make the difficult decisions easy. Next he orders the quality material and sets up the install date. He even wipes the dust off your new cabinets. Wow!
