Dad had a nice Father’s Day with calls from both Patty and Joe, wonderful to hear from you both!  We took the day off or as much as we could, Dad cleaned the house (I never do it to his satisfaction so he has done it Sunday mornings for years and years) and I wrote letters to the family.  I write a nice long one to cousin Carl and his wife Alice.  She has been very ill and they look forward to any letters or cards.  I have added Gina to my card list, I don’t want her to forget us while we are gone all summer.  I understand now she likes to help with the cooking so I am looking forward to having her help me cook supper for her family every night.  Cookies are her favorite thing to make and maybe this year she will help make them as well as eat them, right Gina?  Today is going to be a hot one so we will work only this morning.  We plan to go out right after this and cut the brush that is growning back in the wooded area between here and the main garden.  There are half a dozen little flower gardens there but inbetween them it is nice to just walk and enjoy the area but the trees insist on reclaiming that area so today we must go in and show them who is running this place.  Have a good day.

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.
