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."

Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage.

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson, poet

Make the most of each day as it comes, you will never be able to repeat it so it is up to you to start each day with a positive outlook and make the most of it.

Pat
