About

hatselfieHello! And welcome to The Peeper Project, where I write about life on our small rural property. My name is Cara and after a lifetime of city living, mostly in apartments, I am finally really  living the dream—our dream—of having some land, gardening and enjoying the peace and creativity inspired by a life set in nature, with our animals.

Just over two years ago, my husband, John, and I took the plunge and bought a house on 10 acres, set way back from the road, and out of sight of neighbours. In the first year, our little family expanded to include two cats, Jasper and Bronte, two dogs, Duke and Charlie, two horses, Walter and Cobber … then a third horse, Tank … and most recently, our adopted rescue mare, Ellie. And to complete our mob are the Peepers, the three hens after whom I named this blog: Mabel, Penny and Jupiter Janie.

I hope you enjoy visiting our furry family.
