"I can't wait for this winter.  I've seen things in Summer and Fall.  The leaves were beautiful.  I'm excited to see farm fields with snow."

"I love driving and seeing all the places along the way.  For me it is so peaceful to be out it inspires me with ideas and is a time of reflection as well.  This fall was absolutely awesome and when the sunlight hits just right, it is…"

"I'd imagine that our scenery is a bit different.  Mind describing?  I've never been south of Kentucky.  To me, Texas is all desert and tumbleweed."

"I love to get in the car and just drive out in the open country around my farm with my family.  We live in West Texas, and there is lots of open country to see.  "

The Country Drive

It has come to be one of my favorite things about living in the country.  While it might be considered a bit wasteful right now with current gas prices and with New York and New Jersey still struggling after Hurricane Sandy,  we still can't help but jump on a road and go...somewhere. It started as a way to view the neighborhood.  We didn't know the area.  Overall, we were still pretty new to Virginia.  So why not take a look around?  On weekends, we stared taking different  routes to get…See More

Animals, Animals, Animals

October should be known as Animal month.  With all the fairs and shows that go on, I was in little animal paradise.  Well not little animals.  Most of what we saw was huge.  Cow, horses, even the lamas seem much bigger when you're standing just on the other side of a suddenly thin gate.  I mean look at those horns!We started this…See More

5 Months Later

Well I've just reminded myself that I am terrible at keeping a blog.  I had great plans to write on a bi-weekly basis of what we, my husband and I, are doing to get our dream farm going.  Looking back at the blog now, I see 5 months of silence.  Yep, that's me...Now we haven't been sitting around doing nothing for these five months.  Just nothing very farming.  So I kept putting off typing anything.  So why start now?  Two reasons: First, I see if I don't get back into typing, I won't.  It will…See More

As the Ink Drys

I have just finished a glass of apple cider, sitting on the back deck of our new dream.  We sat in silence for a bit listening.  All we could hear were birds.  Closing my eyes now I can still here them.We signed the final papers for our dream farm.  A relatively new house sitting on 21 acres of recently timbered land.  We started the first steps today by changing all the locks and pulling out the carpets.  It was two hours of knee braking (carpets hurt).  We had some wonderful friends there to…See More

Quick Thoughts

Ten days ago, we had the opportunity to buy a house on 21 acres.  Today, I sit with the official loan papers on my desk.  They say yes, you can have your farm.Suddenly it is all sinking in that we can do this and it is amazing.  My husband and I walked around hardware stores and farming stores today just looking at all the stuff we'll need soon.  It felt wonderful. Looking at floor and paint samples.  The prices of tools and what we'll really need as apposed to what just looks neat to own. …See More
