Welcome to my little farm in the city.

This is a little blog about my life here on my little farm in the city. I am a wife, a mom, a grandma to 6 beautiful grandchildren. I live in a very small Mayberry like town in South Carolina . We live on the banks of a small river in the woods. I raise chickens and this year I really plan to try my hand at a small garden so that I can use the products for canning this year. It will be a venture since all we have is this lovely red clay that is hard as a brick, but I have high hopes. I am an avid knitter and crocheter and I love to work on new patterns that I find. You will probably find much of my work here as I finish it. Well thanks for stopping bye and please stop in often and stay as long as you like. Trudy

On vacation!!

So I bet you think I disappeared  right?  Nope  I am in Michigan for a few  weeks  visiting my  kids.  They  live  so far away  and I have  not  seen them since last  year so  they  graciously sent me a ticket and  here I am .  

I have  had  a lot  of  fun so far and  with two weeks  left I am sure there  will be more memories  made before I leave.   Let's  see .....  we  have  played outside  in the sprinkles 

We  have  gone  shopping  for Halloween costumes  and I am now the  proud Grandma of a pirate  and  Cleopatra  

The  weather  has  been  typical Michigan fall weather.  Crisp and  a  bit  windy  but sunny  most of the  time.  The  fall colors  have  been amazing   .....

Oh course  when it  is fall you have  to go apple  picking  and  then make  apple sauce and  apple butter  so you can remember that  fun day  when it is cold and wintery  here.  

 On one warmer  fall day we  took the  girls to the  pumpkin  farm and let the  play on the hay bales,  play with baby animals and  pick their pumpkins .

So  after  the  pumpkin getting  you must  do this  right ?  I think they did an awesome job  too, I can not  wait to see them lit  tonight !   

So  the only  bad  memories  so far?  A  nasty  cold  that  won't  go  away  but if  that  is the worst,  I will take  it  !!  So much for today ,  more memories to follow  but  before I go a couple more memories  for you  to enjoy.
