Apples all done!!!

We finished the apples today by making 6 and 1/2 pints of apple jelly so that finishes up the jellies.  We have finished Patty and Becca’s Christmas jars so they can give them away or keep them all for themselves- up to them.  Shanti’s grand daughter Dyhana called her today.  She is so cute and so smart.  149801_10151208514464158_1748936483_n


This is Dyhana and a friend. She is four years old and so tall for her age. 10553505_10152413380024597_3959482804043616251_n

Here she is with her new sister, Prem.  Prem is as small as Dyhana was big.   Both were very good babies.

This is the reason for living.

Time now to rest and just visit with Shanti.  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.

    • Hi, Yes, That makes me a great grand mother and that isn’t too bad. Soon I could be a great great grand mother!! I have 9 great grand children. Kathy is a grand mother as Tom has two boys and one is a senior in high school this year and Celina has one. Shanti is a grand mother and has two grand children both girls. Patty is a grand mother as Becca has a girl and twin boys and now even my baby, Joe, is a grand father. He has a boy just a year old.
