So here is what it’s all about. For one year we will make our lives a bit more public in order to share what is it is like living on a small family farm in rural America. You will share in our real world, uncensored. You will see how we do what we do, how we live, how we make ends meet or not, what we eat, what we raise, in general how we live. You can ask us questions, we reply back in the blog.
These are our very own minipigs. The babies are 16 weeks old and ready to go to new homes. As you can see by the size of their parents they are not going to be very big. they are friendly spoiled and love grapes and apples.
So spring is returning to the mountain and with it the hope that I can make a life for us from the farm. We have plants and seeds ready, the ground ready, but the weather is not helping us at all.
I am hoping the fruit trees will set their fruit before the freeze later this week. Everything in a farmer's life revolves around the weather.
We hatched our first bourbon red turkey of the year and many, many little ducklings and chickens. It is wonderful to hold the little loves in our hands, knowing all the while that it will provide food for us or someone else.
I want to carry along with my heart the fact that I am blessed.
Dresslily is having a great sale....check out my link below.
I find comfort in my status of life in small ways. One may rob me of some simple joy, but I am warm and dry. If I really want to I can buy what you have carelessly destroyed. I have somewhere else.
Why should me enjoying life matter to one as you? What I have, I have and what I own, I own, owing no other for its kind or keep.
It pains me most that such a burden is laced upon my employer, who bares the loss of such transactions.
It is in youth that one believes in the “because effect”, and it is in age that one tarries slower, judging with a more opened eye. Age has granted me the lesson of one's tongue and from that I will be more still. What should it merit me to be otherwise!
I hear them from my little space, like chickens finding an order; I chuckle to myself
because I have a place. It is not of status or of wealth, but of simple-ness and peace. No matter what I am blessed.
On Facebook I see people complaining all the time. They complain about the weather, politics, animal and human abuse. They do such a poor job of it, sometimes I am lead to wonder if they are serious at all. Maybe they are just trying to fit in to seek the attention of the masses that yearn to be captive and not free. It would not bother me so much, however, most are such poor spellers and some have issues even compiling a complete sentence.
I can hardly bare to see read it all, yet I stay diligent reviewing each poorly written piece of propaganda and wondering why I am doing so.
Help us to help our selves, buy our stuff...
These are pendants I have made, I have clear and white quartz, tigers eye, amethyst, rose quartz and more, all wrapped in jewelry grade wire, made to last a lifetime. They are 5 each before shipping, less if you buy five or more. Shipping starts at 3 in the USA.
