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.

Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day. –Sally Koch, author

Blossom into the best that you can be.

Give me the determination to reach goals I didn't know I had should be our mantra,.

Glory of Friendship by Ralph Waldo Emerson

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,
nor the kindly smile nor the joy of companionship;
it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when
he discovers that someone else believes in him and is
willing to trust him.

The greatest achievements were at first and for a time dreams. The oak sleeps in the acorn. –James Allen, author

Put aside your fear of failure and replace it with effort towards your goals.

The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money ... or the most awards.
They simply are the ones who care the most.
