Sep 1914

Very busy around here.  We worked on the gardens some.  Got most of the winter weeds done and have the ground ready to till.  The lettuce and spinach are finally up a little.  It is still cold around but at least it stays above freezing.  Still can’t tell if the fruit trees made it through this cold spring.  Joe and Holly have been looking for a house for when they move and it looks like they found one.  We are all happy about that.  I have been busy making out lesson plans and work sheets to help Holly home school Luke.

I guess that fills you in on what we are doing.  My cooking takes up quite a bit of time each day but I love that.  I guess I love all my projects so that is why I never seem to have time do it all.  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.
