Night Shirt

Have spent three days doing a little of this and a little of that.  I start each day working on my family tree.  I have traced Norman’s line from Norman Petts back to Adam and Eve.  You have to take some of it with a grain of salt but it does look good.  There are 10 generations from the Bible, then about 40 generations from stories and myths, then quite a few from history and then we hit the Petts line which we know for sure.  The Petts name does not go that far, most of it is through the wives lines.  Most people can do the same with their family tree as once you get into the royal line of any country they get it all and the wealthy were the only ones that kept records back then.  Any ways after breakfast I spend about an hour working on one garden or another or some days I just cook for the rest of the day.  Then I make sure and get in an hour or so sewing.  I just finished an old fashion nightie for Dhyana.Photo on 9-14-14 at 5.35 PM


This is a picture of the nightie I just made.  Now I am working on a bed jacket for Gina and then want to do a Baby Doll nightie.

Shanti gave me a Netflix box to stream movies.  I wasn’t sure it was anything I would use but we find we love it.  We have movies and old TV series so we can watch TV any time we want and don’t have to watch the ads.  We also see programs that used to be good, which I can’t say the same for most of the TV shows today.  So we gave up the extended cable and have only the basic cable so now we watch good shows and movies whenever we want with no ads and save a lot of money doing so.   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.
