I am a wife, mother, grandmother that lives on a farm in Craig County, Virginia and I work full time. I love to cook, read, quilt, craft, garden, hunt and take long walks in the woods. I have one gorgeous teen granddaughter and two beautiful and caring children, boy & girl. I’ve been married to my farmer husband for 40 years and I have a younger brother that has lived with us for the last four years since my Mom passed away. I love doing things the “old” way such as canning, making maple syrup & cider, handcrafts and baking. We live off the land for the most part and another reason why I hunt. We run 75 head of cattle on our farm, 20 chickens, and dogs and cats. Our bed partner is a five year old blonde cocker spaniel by the name of “Sassy” and she pretty much rules the house.
Country Girl Through & Through
I'm a country girl from the western part of Virginia in a small community of New Castle/Craig County. I've lived in Craig all my life-eighteen years with my parents and siblings and forty + years with my wonderful husband.
We have two children, a boy and a girl, and two grandchildren, all of which we love very much. We live on a 500 acre+ farm that has been in my husbands family for over 200 years. We are raising beef cattle, chickens, rabbits and a couple dogs.. We grow pretty much all we eat or harvest from the farm and I can't imagine living anywhere else.
I love to create, craft, quilt, read, write, decorate, crochet, candlewick, bake, bow hunt, cook, garden, farm animals and walking/hunting in the woods. I love sharing our home with family and friends.
I hope you enjoy the posts that I enter on my blog and hopefully will be helpful and/or fun to all that read it.
