Going Home

Still very cold here and much too busy to get out to take pictures.  The boys, Luke and Landen, and myself are making out just fine.  It does make for a long day.  We do school work, read, play a card game or two and just make meals.  Today Luke and I made chocolate chip cookies, yesterday we made country biscuits and so far everything has come out good   Luke  likes to cook but he hasn’t had much practice.  He does help me with all the meals and he wipes all the dishes that Landen or I wash.  Yesterday he helped me make pork chops and today it was game hens.  Landen love the hens but Luke was too fond of them.  I just fell asleep writing this and now I am all confused.  I thought I was writing to Rosemary but see I am trying to blog and let everyone know what I am doing.  Boy am I getting old!!  I find I have trouble keeping up the pace and all things considered it is best I head back to Florida.   So I am making plans now to spend one more month here and then be back in time for the closing on the house by March 2.  That way I don’t have to worry about finding a way to fax the contracts back in time.  Not about to think too clearly right now so will say Have a great day and I’ll take a nap.









Take car

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.
