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."

A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depends on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the measure as I have received and am still receiving. -- Albert Einstein

I never really thought about this until I read this quote, but we do depend on so many others-no man is an island and we all need to remind ourselves of that every day.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday my friend.

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start,
anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

Believe you can do anything you want to do if you work hard enough to achieve it.


Always do your best-that is all you can ask of yourself!
