A couple in their 60's, a 1940's army building turned into a 3 bedroom cottage, 2.5 acres, vegetable and herbal gardens, goats, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, Great Pyrenees, rescue dogs and cats, living as simple and frugal as possible. That is what you will find written about here. Thank you for stopping by. Share anything you like and ask any questions you wish!
Have been canning and freezing all week. Got tomatoes, carrots, pickled peppers, apple sauce, collards,and tomato sauce canned. Froze parsnips and turnips. Still need to can pumpkin puree for pies. Harvey turned 5 while here and ask for a Bumble Bee transformer cake. Being I never heard of Bumble Bee Transformers it took awhile finding one for his cake but was worth the trips to stores seeing the smile on his face. He is with his mom and dad for the weekend to have a party and then will be back tomorrow for one more week. We have plans to bake lots of cookies and make lots of candy for him to take home for Christmas. We did finally get the tree up yesterday and I got it decorated tonight. Need to put the lights up across the front of the house and the outside will be done. Decided to decorate old fashioned this year except for lights. Looks kinda like Little House decorations and will post pics tomorrow. Love the simple decorations after years of going overboard. Going to box up and donate most of the Christmas decorations. Just don't like the clutter and closed in feeling when having too many decorations. Must be getting old. Will be helping William tomorrow with a customers yard and trees before going to friend Gerda's to take her a rooster and couple of hens. Have to build her a pen but she wants chickens for Christmas so she shall have them. No matter what happens in everyday life there are always blessings to be thankful for and I am very blessed.
