I joined in 2010. It seems so long ago. BJ and I lived just blocks from downtown Livingston. We worked at our jobs, paid bills, like everyone else. I had chickens in the backyard and a garden in the front yard. We retired and moved to 8 acres in Lindale in 2015. Living the dream, we had fun.

No, I never saw myself where I am now. I had the fairy tale. My husband and I were truly one. He’s gone, I sold the 8 acre farm, came to Trinity county and bought 25 acres with a double wide. The fences are run down, grown up with 30 or 40 years of brush, vines and trees. Did I bite off more than I can chew? Probably. Am I crazy? Definitely. Crazy is what I do best.
As our Brother Hank says " I have always been crazy, its kept me from going insane" 🙃

I have been up since 4:30-stinker cat woke me because she apparently needed to eat. DH is working so it was just me until the kids got up around 7:30-no school today. The sun is out! I have done 3 loads of laundry and dishes. DD8 and I are going to watch holiday movies and paint our toes as she is battling a cough so I don't want to take her anywhere. The library is on our list for Sat, hopefully we can make it. I need to get to the feed store by Monday but not today! Today is just a day. I will need to haul wood and then DD8 and I (if she feels up to it) will go to her fairy garden in the woods to feed them :)

I slept past 7 this morning! Had to be the nighttime Musinex. I put on the coffee pot and went outside to do chores. Back inside, on second cup of coffee, going to be a sunny beautiful day and I don’t care. LOL
Sleep is good! I just finished #2 and let tony out,

You probably needed the sleep after being stuffy and all waking up at 3.
