A New Beginning

It has been a long time since I add a new post on my blog. It is not that I didn’t try but between the time I was posting every week and the time I came back to let you know what I was doing things changed on my site and I no longer knew how to add a new post or blog. I just added the one I wrote back on Nov.3 when I first moved to Iowa. At that time the best I could do was write the post and save it as a draft.

I am stubborn if nothing else so today I came back to my dash board and asked for help on entering a new blog and sure enough I found out how to do it and just took the draft I save back in Nov. and posted it. Now I think if I ask when I need help I can get back to blogging each day and let everyone know what is happening here, and there is much to tell.

My whole life has changed again and I am having a ball. Right now it is late in the day so will not talk long. I will post this as a test for myself to see if I am on the right track finally. I will come back tomorrow morning and tell you all about my new home and include some pictures of my house and all my bird friends. I’ll tell you all the things that have gone wrong and those that have gone right. I will not be able to give you anymore information on the family tree as I have sent most of my information on that to my children. I got so involved that I was just loosing myself in it and found I was no longer connected to the living.

I am now started a new phase in my life and will center my attention to the present with all its problems and joys. I need to keep my mind active and practice remembering things that happened this week. I have never had trouble remembering what happened 20 years ago but as I get older I fine it hard to remember what I had for breakfast or even if I had it today and I think some of that is because I was living in the past, so no more. Now I will live today and enjoy it.

Have a good night, talk to you all tomorrow. Love and peace to 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.
