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.

I love to read! I read at night while hubby watches TV. I read at my deerstand and Lord only knows what slips by me while I’m there! I belong to a bookclub formed when I was working at Virginia Tech and haven’t been able to attend a meeting since July but think I only missed one. We are a very busy group of ladies. Prior to my retirement, I won a whole arm load of books from Crown Publishing.
I’m also a member of Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/) and the Reading Room which send me an email when authors and publishers have a new contest to enter. This was the third time in the last two years that I’ve received new and sometimes used books.
Pamela Clare is a new author to me but the books I won are Extreme Exposure, Hard Evidence, Unlawful Contact, Naked Edge, Breaking Point and Striking Distance.
I have an Android that my husband got for me last year for my birthday and I can read lots of free books on it but there’s just something about holding that paper book in your hand that draws me into the storyline that the Android can’t.
I won another book back in June of this year by Samantha Hayes called
If you are an avid reader like me you should become a member of Goodreads and enter some of their contests. It’s also a great tool to get background and storyline on books other readers can’t put down.
There’s absolutely nothing to compare on a cold winter day to curling up with a good book and a hot cup of tea in front of a warm fire!!
