  1. Just found your blog and love the farm. Sounds like you had the guts to do something I always thought I did. I guess it takes two and oil makes our living so I have to stay with hubby. the country will always be my heart. We hope to retire eith there are arkansas and open a B&B with my son Rian that is a chef.nice to meet you.

  2. OMG, you're a girl after my own heart. I am LOVING this blog. I'm on a similar journey myself but I haven't managed to give up my heels. =)

  3. That's a great photo - spy sheep, eh? :)

  4. Seriously... have you thought of making posters out of some of your photos? They are so pretty and nicely framed!

  5. Hi Brenda,
    Welcome to the farm! Your B&B retirement plans sound great. In the meantime you can get a taste of country living by e-visiting our farm anytime--it's all of the fun and none of the work! ; )

    Hi Sustainablestyle,
    And a big welcome to you, too! As for the heels, I know just what you need--a nice pair of rubber boots. They're very liberating--and oh so stylish! ; )

    Hi Beverly,
    No, that's not Cary. That's a cute little black (now brown) lamb that was born last spring. But I promise (again!) that I'll share some Cary photos soon. She's doing just great and is as crazy as ever.

    Hi Pille,
    Everybody has a job around here--this sheep is a spy. ; ) They just love to peer through the slats in the fenceboards. Sometimes there'll be two or three all spying on me at once. . .

    Hi Lisa,
    Thanks so much for the compliment. Yes! I've thought about making posters of some of my farm photos available for sale, as well as greeting cards, etc. Now actually doing it is another thing. But it's definitely on the Really Want To Do List--maybe it'll finally happen in 2008! : )

  6. Hi Susan,

December 2015 update: Hi!
