What fun!!

Joe is training for his new job and loving it all.  We went down to Whitwell and helped Holly and family move some things from Whitwell to Athens, AL.  They have a very nice house I know they will be very happy there.  We close on the house in two weeks and we listed our farm for sale.  Anyone interested in a great retirement home where they can grow all their own food should check out “A Farm for Sale” at the top of the page.  We are asking $159,900 for the farm.   Today Norman pulled the last of the green beans so tomorrow we will have the last couple meals of beans.  There are still parsnips and peppers in the lower garden and the deer are not interested in those so when I saw the two does down in the garden area I did go running out with the broom this time.  I just stood and watched them for a minute, then I saw the two fawns with them.  One was jumping up in the air and spinning around, then stop and eat the grass and jump up again  his legs as he jumped.  All I could think of was the pictures of Bambi when his mother took him to the meadow.  I was awful glad I didn’t  chase them away.  I stood and watched them for quite a while before I got back to work.

The gardens are almost all cleaned up and ready for winter and we wait to see if anyone is interested in seeing the house.  I have not gotten to do much sewing this week but have been doing a lot on my family tree.  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.
