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!


Looks like we won't be getting the tractor or tools or anything else from my husband's deceased father's farm. His sister seems to be saying no way ... FIL's friends and local townspeople deserve it more.

At least, that's how it's coming across.

I've never seen my husband as hurt as he is right now.

We may have our problems, but I support him completely. Fine. His sister doesn't want to divide up property and give him his 50%? I don't like her anyway: too snobby. And his mother is way too controlling. Guess from now on, my son (who they hate anyway) and I (don't like me either) will NEVER attend another family function: holiday, birthday... doesn't matter. If Hubby wants to, that's his choice. But son and I won't.

Okay, so now we probably won't get the tools or tractor or whatever, so we won't be able to make new paddocks and raise more of our food or do woodworking or the other things we planned... we'll get by.

Always do.

Was there a WILL? Maybe you need a lawyer.

One moment told yes. Next told no. Yes. No. Make up your minds! Won't show us anything.

Gonna wait a couple of weeks to see if this works itself out. Then if not, may be lawyer time.

Thanks, anon.
