've always wanted to be homesteadish.

Emphasis on the ISH. I only want the fun facade part.

Pet chickens and 2 goats. Same sex. No breeding allowed. And a couple beehives and a bat house.

I'd for sure plant a garden. Planting is wonderful, but I only like to weed when I feel like it so we need to be decently close to a store.

I'm not lazy but I've done my time. I've raised 5 kids and one grandchild. Now he's a sophomore at OSU and doesn't need me as much.

We moved a couple of days ago from a super nice Hilliard, Ohio neighborhood (the Scioto River and a beautiful park were my backyard) to 2 acres in West Mansfield, Ohio.

It was so beautiful and I have so many friends there, but no chickens or goats or really anything but cats and dogs are allowed. And they'd better be pretty.

It's bittersweet. I will miss it but I'm looking forward to what's coming.

I've kept a colony of Sea Monkeys thriving for over 10 years. If I can do that, I can do anything!

Oh yeah, my husband is coming too.

Welcome! Nice to meet you. I didn't know there was such a thing as weeding only when you feel like it. I haven't heard of Sea Monkeys in years! I had to google them to refresh my memory.
