What is on the agenda today? Well lots. I want to work on the blog. Perhaps you've noticed some of the simple changes Kristi has been making. Ideally it would have been better to scrap this site, and start with something new, but I didn't want to as I wanted to keep this URL because I didn't want to lose anymore readers.(which happened when I changed URLs from my old blog name to my new current one). You have been with me as you saw what my life looked like before as a farm-wife, then as I rebuilt my life from the ashes of divorce. Because you are important to me, I'm hoping you will like the changes on the blog that are coming! (promise)
I'm still toying with what I want the blog to look like and frankly, I'm having a hard time because I don't just focus on one thing..... nope that would be way too easy. My passion is writing about how our food is grown, but the balance is to give just enough information, not be boring and provide a personal glimpse of what life on the farm looks like (and then try to make it somewhat interesting).... then there is my passion for making huge messes in my kitchen, which normal people call baking. So do I just have one page? Or pages devoted to those topics? hmmmm. Oh and then there is the other messy passion, refurbishing furniture. So friends, please let me know what you want.(pretty please)
|One of my "projects" the barn is my new shop! And the white cottage|
is where I'll put up my bed and breakfast guests.
My shop will allow me to do projects like this over the winter (below) in my shop and NOT in my bedroom like I've been doing.

Since it rained I'm toying with if this is the right time to re-seed my lawn with the "no water" grass seed to get it started for a no work lawn next summer. Rain is forecast but so is wind, guess I'm make that decision shortly. The really cool thing about this seed is that it is grown my area farmers and I'm thinking I can do a field trip to the seed company's site to show you. Yup, by now you realize there is lots going on in this crazy farm chick's brain.
