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!


Didn't get the buck goat pen built last night. Someone came home in a grumpy mood, even with new goat babies to cuddle.

Escalated to a doozy of an argument at bedtime. About shuffling feet and damaging carpet, something the kid absolutely can't control (whether it's OCD or autism, I don't know but he's been doing it since he was 3 or 4). So now I'm looking for carpet runners or pieces or irregulars to put all over the house so the kid has a place to walk without hurting the carpet.


I'm getting ready to call and see if friends or friends-of-friends can help me build the buck goat pen today. Like I don't have anything else to do.

Beyond frustrating.
