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, four dogs -- occasionally six -- a cat and currently 16 Nubian milk goats, two of them pregnant. Chickens think they're free-range, and have started laying eggs but something is stealing the eggs so we have a live trap set to catch the thief.

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, four dogs -- occasionally six -- a cat and currently 16 Nubian milk goats, two of them pregnant. Chickens think they're free-range, and have started laying eggs but something is stealing the eggs so we have a live trap set to catch the thief.

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."

The Cake Of Friendship


Preheat the oven of love
With plenty of secrets and hugs

Mix in giggles and laughs
That make your sides split in half

Bake with the love and care
And all the things you both should share

Decorate with the frosting of trust
This is really a must

Enjoy the cake do not eat it fast
Just like your new friendship make it last.

A goal without a plan is just a wish. –Antoine de Saint-Exupery, writer

The weekend is upon us-now is the time to make your plan for the coming week. Each day we must work to keep moving towards our goal because we have a plan.

Some days there won't be a song in your heart. Sing anyway. –Emory Austin, motivational speaker

I do believe we make our own music-it is up to us to make it happy and uplifting to keep ourselves motivated and moving. Tap those toes and hear the beat!

Happy Thursday my friend. The weekend is nearly here.

You are valuable because you exist. Not because of what you do or what you have done, but simply because you are. –Max Lucado, author and pastor

Focus on your blessings for they are your true worth. You have been a blessing in my life. May you have a wonderful week.
