This site is about my life as a farmgirl, wife, mother and grandmother. We have a beautiful granddaughter and the cutest grandson. We own two farms in Craig County Virginia, leasing one and raising beef cattle on the other.
I’m back up and running with a new Dell computer and advise on making my tablet run better which I took! I have no excuses now not to be writing in this blog and catching up from all the adventures of 2021 before the year ends. Big ideas sometimes come to life and hope this is one of them.
Love to my computer fairy and for her advice with my tablet. Too much junk can slow the thing down. I will be the first to admit I am not computer savvy at all, but I have kids that are and they’re my go to when anything goes wrong.
New posts coming soon, I promise, but first got to make sure I’m prepared for what may some ice on Wednesday. Everyone stay safe and please wear your masks!!
We truly had a wonderful day with my kids and our friends and it seemed to fly by but I guess that’s because we were having fun!! The day was full of stories, laughter, getting to know each other and friendship.
For lunch, I fixed a vegie tray, fruit bowl and a small cheese tray. I made homemade chicken salad, teriyaki chicken wings, and fried morels for the main course. Of course, the day wouldn’t have been right with a big batch of homemade dinner rolls and loaf of homemade bread. I made a cocoanut dream cake which was my first attempt at the recipe and it was so moist and good but I dread what it may do to my weight-loss. I made a cherry crunch tart, also a new recipe, but I wasn’t real thrilled with it so that recipe is coming out of the box!!
One of my guests brought some homemade cheese pastries that were so good and we had tea, lemonade and a new drink I’m using, called marguerita ade. It is so sweet-tart and really quenches your thirst on a hot day!
Family, friends, and fabulous food, what more could you ask for.
This is the blog for our little farm in Skagit county. Here we have Shetland sheep and Nigerian Dwarf goats. In addition we have donkeys, cattle, pigs, chickens, geese, and peafowl. The blog describes the weekly activities here.
