My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, ... thank you!

Happy Birthday to Me!

Woke up with swollen fingers (arthritis) and a huge head cold. Fun fun.

Today is my birthday. I am now *&%#^ years old. I'd almost forgotten what the day was until mom-in-law asked if she could come over today. I guess when you get old like me, it's not as important.

Hmmm.. I wonder if Hubby and/or the Kid got me something. Or made me something. I'm always fine with something the Kid makes for me, as long as thought is put into it.

I think I'll take today off.

Yeah, right.

Expecting baby chicks today or tomorrow so I'm at the ready to pick them up. The baby chick brooder is ready and waiting. Will be kinda nice today so the Kid and I will transfer (walk on a leash) the goaties to their outdoor pen... once it warms up a little.

Was planning on writing (typing) but fingers hurt so bad I can barely type this. Wanted to work on the garden or even unpack some more boxes, but again, my fingers and hands. You know... I think I **will** take part of today off.

Wonder if there's any cake.

Please plant a nut or fruit tree today.
