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, three dogs -- plus the neighbor's two dogs who usually show up for breakfast and dinner -- a cat and currently 17 Nubian milk goats, one of them pregnant. Chickens think they're free-range, and keep us in eggs all summer and well into the cold weather.

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, three dogs -- plus the neighbor's two dogs who usually show up for breakfast and dinner -- a cat and currently 17 Nubian milk goats, one of them pregnant. Chickens think they're free-range, and keep us in eggs all summer and well into the cold weather.

2014r 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 rest and renewal, with no major projects planned. In 2016 we'll have someone do a bathroom renovation, swapping our tub out for a walk-in shower with grab rails, part of our plans to age-in-place.

Hubby bought me a treadmill from the local thrift store, so I'm gradually working up my speed and endurance.

This short story is a very good lesson and should really made us think twice about the daily happenings in our lives as we deal with others!

Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I'm working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said,"Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile."

I hope your memories bring a big smile to you my friend.

Obstacles don't have to stop you.
If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up.
Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
- Michael Jordan -

Wishing you a Sparktacular Week!!!

The greatest test of faith is when you don't get what you want but still, you are able to say "Thank you Lord." – Author Unknown

Trust that there is a divine plan.
