I'm a city girl turned country dweller, with more miles on me than I care to admit. I share my life with my writer husband, five dogs -- occasionally seven -- a cat and an even dozen Nubian milk goats. Chickens have arrived and are nicely settled in our poultry yards. (They think they're free-range, and have started laying eggs, hiding them in the old scrap wood pile.)

I'm a city girl turned country dweller, with more miles on me than I care to admit. I share my life with my writer husband, five dogs -- occasionally seven -- a cat and an even dozen Nubian milk goats. Chickens have arrived and are nicely settled in our poultry yards. (They think they're free-range, and have started laying eggs, hiding them in the old scrap wood pile.)

Last year was supposed to be spent finishing up projects and cleaning the property, but was derailed by some heart irregularities. We did expand the goat yard and build an extension on the barn to accommodate the additional goats.

2015 will be a time of finishing the root cellar, clearing along the fence line and cleaning out the storage shed. If time and energy permit, I'd also like to turn the wasted space where the water heater used to live into a towel closet in the bathroom.

I don't do well with formal exercise programs, partly due to being so far from an affordable gym, so work is my "exercise plan."

Take time to laugh.
It is the music of the soul.
Take time to think.
It is the source of power.
Take time to play.
It is the source of perpetual youth.
Take time to read.
It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to pray.
It is the greatest power on Earth.
Take time to love and be loved.
It is a God-given privilege.
Take time to be friendly.
It is the road to happiness.
Take time to give.
It is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to work.
It is the price of success.
~Anonymous


Time is something we should never take for granted!
Make the most of each and every day my friend.

A Friend
A friend is like a shade tree
Beside a summer way.
A friend is like the sunshine
That makes a perfect day.
A friend is like a flower
That's worn close to the heart.
A friend is like a treasure
With which one will not part.

Thank you for being my friend
Pat

With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for
yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an
opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.
~~Wayne Dyer~~

Wishing you a Healthy, Happy Week
