We went to Kentucky for a church homecoming, and took some time to check out properties near Irvine that we saw on Zillow. Somehow our GPS got confused in the mountains, but we found the property I had my eye on purely by accident. It is everything that I want - a view, quiet, and a small house. The only problem is that we aren't ready to retire for anot her couple years, and can't afford two mortgages. I hope the LORD will keep it for us!

Welcome to the Farmgirl Connection, Sharon! I am glad you have also found your piece of Heaven. What I enjoy most about living in the country try is hearing sounds of nature.. barking dogs, mooing cows, insects, frogs- but no noisy neighbors or screeching cars.

I am a new Sister, #8010! We purchased our 10 acres in June of 2016 but had to wait until April of 2019 to start building our new little farm home - took a while to sell our 1939 vintage home in town. But how pleased we our with our God Given Acres & our home at the top of the hill which allows us to see the sunrise every morning & the sunset every evening. Gardens to be planted this year - and, of course, a red barn built!!!

We keep evicting these ladybug wannabes from the kitchen. Goodness knows where they come from.

We've been warned not to squish them because they smell bad.

Thanks. I felt so awkward and lonely in junior high. I guess everyone does.

I hate to tell you Marie---but you look pretty in that picture. You and Vanessa were both very pretty. Don't be so hard on yourself.

Argh! I remember looking that terrible. I am in the navy shirt (not the best color for me). The others are Joe, the elder, and Michael, the little guy.

God gave us two hands... one to help ourselves, and one to help others!

There is not much new in our home. Schools were delayed an hour due to fog.

It is strange that we've not had any snow this winter.
I am working on this wonky quilt. The dachshund print was so cold, I chose orange to warm it up, and the other side has a lovely peacock print.

Another improvement to our home: a sliding door to the unheated basement laundry area. We also have a vent from my mother-in-law's apartment to the bedroom so the heat can rise. Our handyman also made it possible to get under the steps for more storage.

My sweetie has his high moments. Once, he arranged to whisk me from work and took me to Las Vegas for our anniversary. Because I lent his mom the desk I used for sewing, he ordered a replacement. Yesterday, the replacement arrived. Its a beautiful 60 year old cabinet. Eventually I may get a machine to fit inside. Now I can get busy with Christmas stockings and quilts!

I wish my hair was this pretty natural color---I thought you had had it colored. Right now I look like an old holler hag with bad gray roots and the rest red. I couldn't dye it when we had no water and have been too busy to fool with it. This cold weather will give me more time for myself.

I've let it go natural - luckily I'm a no frills type!

This morning my sweetie said I needed a haircut. After work I went to a new beauty parlor and got a trim.

I've signed up for the stuffed Christmas Stocking swap and am making stockings out of the material in my stash.

Vanessa---if I could sell rocks I'd be a billionaire for sure. That's why our farm is Rock Bottom Farm. It also means we are always broke and scraping by.

Our property produces a fine crop of rocks! This one was carted uphill to sit along our cistern cover.

We got rain too---it was great. I can see your yard is as burned up as mine. What are the trees you planted? Our ground is very rocky too.

Audra Rose Posted - Oct 06 2019 : 4:22:26 PM
Finally we got rain! Because of that I invited my sweetie to transplant 2 trees we got from the Arbor Day Society. It was a task made harder by the rocks, which are a natural resource in our part of KY. The dirt was still dry, so we ran water in it to soften it up (and so I could play in the mud).
I was pretty muddy! We have more little trees to move, but that's it for today.
I've signed up with Noom, and am excited to eat better and get more energy.

Vanessa, your place looks wonderful. I love the porch. Miss Tina looks like she enjoys living there also. Thank you so much for sharing all of the wonderful pictures with us.

This is our 2nd anniversary of moving to Kentucky! We've made several changes to the house and a few to the grounds, but it is more or less the same. Also, we've gotten involved in our community, church, and jobs. The property tax bills were mailed out this week and there were around 40 more than last year so folks are moving to Bracken County.
