Welcome to my blog Upstate Girl, (a.k.a Follow Your Bliss Part II), I am an independently published author. This blog is all about writing and the stuff that inspires me to write, the joys and obstacles that come along with the writer's life, and my fascination with the psychology of people and what makes them tick...the human condition, as is...and my love for words, playing with them and making sense of them...and I throw in a few photos from my acre of the world just to make things pretty...sometimes there are things I have no words for, only pictures will do.

*Copyright notice* All photos, writing, and artwork are mine (
© Laura J. Wellner), unless otherwise noted, please be a peach, if you'd like to use my work for a project or you just love it and must have it, message me and we'll work out the details...it's simple...JUST ASK, please.

My Fred with the two wee goats Tessa and Pebbles, and Elizabeth (of course.)
  It's a little more than five months since I received this sweet little donkey and her little pygmy goat friends...Elizabeth is such a sweet little critter, I'm so happy to have her in my life!
Looking for treats

Elizabeth had her hooves trimmed on Sunday morning
The farrier sez her hooves are doing very well...I'm always amazed how tiny her hooves are!

A nice portrait of wee Pebbles

The Gang of Goats and one Donkey

This little donkey is a spot of sunshine on cold winter days...
