My Morning

What a great morning. Went to feed the critters at the break of dawn. Three of my hens always run up to greet me, they like to be picked up and scratched under their wings. My pigs didn't tear their pen up so I just had to feed and water them. My Great Pyr immediately got the sheep from the small pasture and hearded them into the large pasture. The little sheep and her bud the pgymy goat wanted to be loved on so I petted them for awhile until they decided to play with the dog. The goat even did his famous dance for me on the barrel. The kittens had caught a rat and were pleased as punch. The roosters are finally learning to cock-a-doodle-do. That was the only sound to be heard. There are some mornings that I feel so overwhelmed by the beauty of it all that I need to share it. The day may get screwed up as it goes along, but the morning was mine and it was perfect. Plus to top everything off I am married to my best friend. Life is wonderful and I thank God everyday.

Have a rainbow day and thanks for listening to me ramble.

Well, a big thunderstorm came rolling thru last nite so i knew the boat was wet. The bail pump had a nasty habit of spritzing me, so i added a rubber washer and pumped the boat out for fishing later. The 7 goslings are past ugly & flying with their folks already, the baby loon is learning to dive for bluegills, and our grandkitten Loopy was teasing 4 crows in the treetops. They'd let her get within about 6 feet, then flutter across to another branch. Nobody got hurt but they all got their opinions out. Loopy claims she won. Good way to puttsy after breakfast. :)

Your sharing of your fortune is much appreciated by those who would wish to be in your position.It helps to build the hope that we all have to someday be in similar circumstances.Occaisionly I go to friends country home,sleep in the back of the pickup overnight,and rise to greet the dawn w/them and their beasties.Kinda makes ya feel that all is right w/the world.

Learn like you'll live forever,live life like it ends tomorrow.

Joe K, We moved to Branch, AR from Houston, TX 8 months ago. I am 60 years young and if you would have told me just a year ago that I would be where I am today I would have humored you. Dennis and I both had this dream and when we finally decided to make the move it took two years of planning where, when and how. Granted living on a set income sure takes a lot of getting used to. We have had a "FEW"!! money discussions but we are adapting. A lot of cutbacks but I would rather give up a lot of "city" stuff and have what we have today. Like they say God may not give me everything I want but He gives me everything I need.

Good Morning All
well I know about living your dream
almost two years ago I looked at my Hubby (who had been disabled for 7 years at that point) and said what are we waiting for and within three weeks we were moved.
A year later we bought(paid in full) our home. Now it isnt what we always wanted which is a home in the country but it is the home we wanted in a small mountain town with his disabilities I think God gave us what was best. I wake up every morning and sit on the porch to drink my coffee and listed to the birds and watch them. On occassion we will have a deer walk by even here in town or see a blad eagle flying over head and there have been bear too which luckly havnt done any damage.
I may have to work many hours while not getting rich but we are happy.
God has Truly Blessed us.
Have a GREAT day.
