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."

Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it,
and virtue is doing it.

Thank You. Thank you so much. Your comment on my blog brought tears to my eyes. I should never let someone else make me second guess myself or my journey. I have been through many changes and I'm so happy with my life right now and that should be all that matters. But thank you so much for those kind words. They really mean a lot to me.

Blessed are those who can

give without remembering

and take without forgetting.


I had to think about this one for a couple moments and then realized this is very profound and revela the secret of what makes a great person.

May your Monday be as Marvelous as you are!!

"The ability to be genuinely grateful for the things that we have and the people we love, as well as for simply being alive and conscious, will do more for bringing a true feeling of happiness to us on a regular basis than almost anything else."
Cary David Richards, The Happiness Habit

Wishing you Sunday Blessings and may you have a blessed week as we come to the end of another month. Are you closer to your goals? If not, take time to reflect on why you aren't and work harder as we soon start the month of August. All things are possible if you keep your eye on the prize and the goal you want to achieve.
