About Me

My photo
Married twenty-three years to my wonderful husband and best friend. We have 3 "home-grown" kids, 1 hand-picked by God from Africa and 1 very hyper-active dog. Our life is blessed. We are a close knit family with strong Christian beliefs. And just recently we have bought ourselves a farm. Do we know what we are doing? Nope. Come along with us on our journey…you might have a great laugh or two.

Catching up….

Things are rockin' and rolling at our farm lately.  We bought a new cart (well….new to us) and might I say.  Best investment EVER!  We are using the fire out of that thing.  And it gives the "young-uns" some mighty fun rides.


We left for a weekend visit to see family and came home to these two cutie-pies.  Twins.  Just born.  We happened upon them and got just within a few feet of them before we noticed them.  They. Did. Not. Move.  Of course one of them had planted itself right in front of our door to our garden.  So needless to say, I didn't garden in that one that evening.  But boy, they were so cool to see.  They stayed around for a few days and as far as we know they have left.  At least for now.  Wait until the apples are ready.  They'll be back….



The weeds have come in our gardens with a vengeance.  But the flip side of that, is that we are getting plenty of rain right now.  So that is a good thing….


…until I turn around and see this.  


We have worked almost everyday gaining control of this again.  It looks a million times better.  I just haven't taken a picture of it yet.  I will.  But right now, my hands are just too sore.

Our farm is also just filled with animals that we've spotted everywhere.  And I'll be honest, it's quite fun.  Well, except for that whole snake thing. And I was too scared to take that pic.  



Okay, technically this isn't our fox.  But it looks like this one.  We are trying to take a picture of him.  But he is FAST….



We are less than 60 days into getting in our home.  The woodworking crew has been in for the past several weeks putting in all the cabinets and building all our built-ins.  The stairs are done and trim is getting up.  These are the finishing touches that really make it cool.  The well has been run out to the gardens and the water is now being connected.  We are so excited.  This has been a really long process, but we are nearing the finish line.  I see the light at the end of the tunnel.

And it's coming like a freight train.
