June 1912

Nice day today, partly cloudy and cool so I got outside and did a little weeding and cleaning up.  The storm we had yesterday and last night left a lot of branches down on the ground.  We don’t get the wind here under the mountain usually but yesterday it came in from the south and blew right down the drive.  The south is the only direction that does not have a ledge or hill to protect us.  No real damage  just lots of rain and wind.  Norman finished repairing the drive.  The road is very steep and washes away when it rains hard and we have had a few such storms lately so he put some cement on the side of the road to hold it in place.  Taking it rather easy each afternoon now.  I work on my family tree and knitting for Christmas and Norman putters in his work shop.  Won’t be long now before we go, I hope the onions get here before we leave!   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.
