The actress shares her thoughts on ranch life, Old California, what she grows in her garden, and more
On seeing her ranch in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada forthe first time. It was winter. Very barren. Coyote country, Ithought. I came back in the spring, and it was lush and beautiful.And there was an old adobe from the 1920s.
On fixing it up. I raised the roof on the adobe. That'sactually quite a lot, raising a roof.
A day at the ranch. At about 7 a.m., I hear the click-clickof my dogs' paws on the floor outside my bedroom telling me it'stime to feed them. I put on coffee, look at the beautiful garden,and decide whether I'm going to ride the horses before they eat orafter they eat. Usually it's after. Then after you ride, you mighttake a nice plunge in the pool.
The evening meal is about 7 or so. When my husband comes up, hisson usually comes too and they barbecue. Ribs, chicken, sometimesfish they bring up from town.
