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."

May the world hug you today
With its warmth, and love
And may the wind carry a voice
That tells you there is a friend
Sitting in another corner of the world wishing you well!

Wishing you a Terrific Tuesday.

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. –Saint Francis de Sales

Forgive yourself when you fail

We are usually much harder on ourselves than we would ever be on someone else. Be gentle and kind to yourself, it will spill over in your actions with others.

Have a blessed Sunday
Pat
