Yesterday we went to Murfreesboro for Norman’s eye shot.  He is on a new medicine now called Abasdin and it seems to be better.  He was all recovered with his vision back to normal by the time we got home.  He goes again in five weeks for another shot and then I hope we can go 8 weeks between shots.  He has been having them for two years now and will have to stay with them for the rest of his life I guess.  We stopped in McMinnville and did a little shopping, mostly chickens.  They were on sale at Food Land so got 5 of them for the freezer.  We got a little rain in the morning so the gardens are happy and now the sun is out so everything will grow well today.  Today I need to stay in and bake.  I have bread to make, apple pie, and some cookies for the freezer.   Norman will finish doing the posts for the tomatoes and I hope to get some weeding done this afternoon.  We do need to have a salad for dinner today as the lettuce is growing so nicely it must be thinned so it can keep growing.    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.
