The Old Dog Learns a New Trick

Luke worked with me this after noon and figured out how to get my pictures on this site. You have to have your pictures in the “library” and from there you can upload them to the post. Or so they say. I spent most of the afternoon putting all the pictures I have taken of this place into the library and now I am going to try and get a couple into this post. If it doesn’t work I will have Luke figure it out tomorrow. He has never worked with a Mac and has never worked with Word Press yet he just got on his phone and asked how to do it, then went to this site and pushed every button until he found what he was looking for. He lost me with the first button but he figured it out. So here goes===

Wow it worked just as Luke said it would even though he had not tried it himself. This is my garden area. I have all three tables that I had on the porch in Spanish Lakes, I put ten grow boxes on them and planted them all with vegetables. I have everything except sun shine here. We have so many beautiful old Live Oak trees we get very little sun light on our little acre. But I do the best I can so far the yellow beans seem to like it the best. The cabbage gave up the first week.

This is the broken water pipe mess I told you about . We have now filled in the hole and pulled out as many vines as we could and picked and all the pieces of root and sticks that were in the mess. We still have to plant flowers along the drive, replace the brick edge and seed in the back side.

Now that I know what to do I will try and continue this each day. Right now it is past my bed time and I am tired so will leave it here for tonight. Sleep well, see you in the morning and show you the house and yard. God Bless you all.

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.
