Fall is in the Air

The leaves are changing, the gardens are almost tucked into bed, and we are almost ready to head south.  Saturday we get one more truck load of manure to put on the gardens for winter.  That will be the last one until spring.  We could not get any onion sets to put in so will settle for just the garlic in this fall, then all the gardens will have been tilled and ready for spring planting.  Yesterday I glazed the fruit cakes that have aged properly and will bring some to our friends at the farmer’s market since this is the last day this year for us to go there.  Next week we have  to go for Norman’s last eye shot before heading south.  Tomorrow I will make more fruit cakes to start aging before taking them to Florida to give to friends there.  There are a few other things that need doing before we leave but it won’t be long now before I can get to Port St Lucie and see those wonderful twins.  I hate to wish my life away but in this case I just can’t help it!  Shanti sent me some great pictures of Dhyana, the other light of my life.  I saved copies of those to take down to show the family in FL.  Hopefully Santi will get to FL. to visit one of these winters.  Have a great 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.
