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!

I'm also planning "guerrilla gardening" in my community. I'll tuck marigold seeds into bare planters or flowerbeds for a future surprise.

Yay! Early gardens! I'm starting my seeds in little salad and chicken service containers I saved this winter! Yay gardening! Seeds are bought and ready! Looks very nice and trimmed Audra Rose and the planters are great!

Yesterday, we gave the yard a quick cut (the mower was set too low in my opinion, and the grass was still wet and clumpy), spread extra dirt along the front porch, not covering the surviving bleeding hearts and bulbs, then we added more dirt to the gardens. That wiped out Mr. XY Chromosomes, but I decided since today, Monday, would be rainy I could put in an early garden. The bed on the left has red, white and yellow onions. The bed on the right has peas, beets and carrots. I'm trying out planting according the the Old Farmer's Almanac this year.

I'm getting ready for Easter. And I'm taking a chance on the weather and putting in peas and lima beans.

And another day begins on my old Kentucky home. Last night we had enough rain to really soak the ground.

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.

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.
