Windswept Acres

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.

“I feel it’s healthier to look out at the world through a window rather than through a mirror. With a mirror, all you see is yourself and whatever is behind you. ”

Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that. –Norman Vincent Peale, best-selling author and minister

Wishing you a super start to the new month-may it be absolutely Sparktacular.

There is a Miracle called Friendship
that dwells within the heart
and you don't know how it happens
or when it even starts.


But the happiness it brings you
always gives a special lift
and you realize that Friendship
is God's most precious gift.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.
Make the *MOST* of your day.
