Good day to All

Just a short blog today to show you the newest dress that Dhyanna tried on. photo.JPG



















Isn’t she a doll?  Thanks to Shanti I get to see her in the dresses I do.  That is one of the disadvantages of living so far away from your family.  My family is spread all across the country so no matter where we live we are far away from some one and as we get older it is best, then no one get sick of us just hanging on and we can do things just as we want to and don’t have to try and keep up with the times.  Because we have such nice kids we get to see almost everyone at least once a year and who could ask for more than that!!

Today we both did some more weeding, Norman in the lower garden and I worked on the hosta bed here near the house.  I am now back working on my genealogy.  I am putting one line of Norman’s tree onto a large chart.  It followed his line through his father on to Adam and Eve.  If we ever sell Whitwell we will send in our DNA and see if this line is correct as they can tell us what part of the world he has defended from.  Makes no real difference as it is fun to do anyways.  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.
