I am now in a big fight with my computer. I know what I want to do and to say but I just can’t get it down on the page. I get a little down and then get so frustrated I leave it for a day or two and then go back and work on it some more. You can see what I have done so far by looking at “A Little Bit of Heaven” . I have it done up to the end of the building the house. I need now to put on the clearing of the land and making the gardens. When we go home I guess we will put an add in Mother Earth and see if there is any interest and when Whitwell sells we will put the farm on the market. We have decided if we want to start a new adventure we had better get to it. We figure we have about ten years more so could have a enough time to try something new, that is reasonable don’t you think? After all that is only 92 and our ancestors lived beyond that!!
Time to stop dreaming and get to work but first we will go to the pool and get some exercise for the day. Then I will get back to my computer and do some more family tree work.
Almost ready for Christmas. I need to go shopping for the Christmas Eve dinner but that is it. 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.
