Yesterday I took the day off and wrote letters.  When I am not outside working in the gardens I am  in the house writing or knitting.  I want to get mittens done for everyone for Christmas.  I have 16 out of the 18 pair done and 8 out of the 12 I need of the boots/slippers I need for Christmas.  I have done two baby blankets crocheted for the new twins due in Oct. and a couple sweaters I still have sweaters to do for Dyhana, Gina, and Luke so have more knitting to do before I do more sets for the twins.  Today I must water the new plantings and have some weeding to do if I can get it done before it gets too hot.  I work well in the morning but afternoon I don’tget much done so most days don’t try, that is when I knit.  Nice to hear from you Joyce and to answer your question in my spare time I write.  I am working on another Web book and am working on an article I want to send to Mother Earth.  I do manage to keep busy.  You see I have lots of energy now that I have discovered the stone ground flour to make my bread with.  I send to Littleton, NH to get the good stone ground flour an in both whole wheat and sifted whole wheat and use only that for all my baking and we find a big difference in our health and engery, you should try it!!

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
