It's been nearly one and a half years since I've posted on my blog....not for lack of desire, but lack of time.
We made the big life changing move from Maryland where I was a small sheep farmer to East Texas where I am trying to still get organized. We bought 25 acres in the Piney Woods of East Texas and are now tree farmers. It's so absolutely peaceful that you can hear pine needles fall! So we decided that our old farm name of Peaceful Acres Farm still held.
When I say it was a big life change I mean that in no uncertain terms.
The Hired Hand (he still holds that honored position) retired at the age of 70 and hasn't stopped working here since he landed in the second U-haul. Both of our grown kids had our first Grand Littles and we've made two trips back to Maryland to love on them,...the most recent I returned from yesterday. We started construction on an Art Workshop for me in June and are still working to finish the interior. I made a huge transition in my diet from meat based to plant based whole foods and have been eating that way for a year....along with that came YUGE health recovery. After I get my life a little more together I'll write more on that....it's definitely a new passion. I've been learning how to garden in zone 9 with Sandy Loam "soil"....it's proving to be a very big challenge! Nonetheless, I'm very excited about zone 9!!! The possibilities are endless! Including Lemon & Lime trees, Tropical fruit trees, Pineapples (already have them going in the garden) and so many other delicious foods...I just have to conquer this Sandy Loam!
There are so many things I haven't done in a year and a half besides write here....art was put on hold, knitting, hooking, photography.....so many of my loves have taken a back to as we get our lives settled and back on track and just enjoy our time together. Believe it or not, neither of us has had a desire to harm the other! :)
