Soooo. it is the last week of March in a day and the first day of spring is long over , we had 70 degree weather that day , but now what happened?
I know I have been lapse about posting. I do apologize for that but I have been busy. I have been working up my fingerless mitts, slippers and kitchen items for folks and now they are done, so for a while I have to take a break and get back to what I want to do.
I have grand daughters that want doll clothes and bunnies and toys and hats and all kinds of sweet things made by grandma plus I have been making an afghan and I LOVE working with those pretty bright colors. Yes it is a granny , I am so addicted to anything granny , I just love the style , the colors and the patterns. The new granny patterns are very unique and so fun to make.
So what else have I been up to ? Well my husband finally has me talked into that last move I shall ever make . I hate moving , no really I despise it all the packing and unpacking, the ridding of boxes and of course all the tossing out or giving away because you won't need it or have room for it routine. We are moving to Florida. Yes I hear you snickering, but we are tired of cold and snow and ice soooooo...... since he has been suggesting it for years I have decided that we should go. I used to love the snow .......... I am from Michigan and I lived there for over 40 years but there just comes a point when I have to say enough. I love snow at Christmas. I want to be warmer now, as I move into the next chapter of my life. So we move one last time to Florida. WE have found the spot we want , we have purchased the home and now all we need to do is get our son here to this house so that he can take it over and we can make the last move. I so look forward to it , my kids and grandkids are REALLY looking forward to it LOL . We are less then an hour from the land of MOUSE and all things Disney. Plus we are surrounded by attractions and now they will not need motels ........... see a plus side always !! So I know that they will be down to visit, we shall be warm and happy and my old bones will be resting in the sun doing what I love to do , sitting and knitting or crocheting the days away in my little sun room in my new home .
See now does this not look inviting ? I think you shall agree and now I will have more time for my favorite things and blogging here with you .
The sad part of preparing to move is pretty much done already. Yes I did have to find a good farm for my chicken girls . I did that and they are very happy now and I did have to find homes for 4 of my rescue pups. I have done that as much as I love them I could not take them with us and I knew that was the mission when I took them in so now they all have very sweet loving forever homes and I know that they are doing well so I can continue on with a quieter and less chaotic but missed life. I have been in dog rescue for over 10 years and even though I will miss the licks and wagging tales I am ready for some quiet and my 3 little pups will be very happy not to have to share me anymore LOL.
So a couple things that I am working on for you to see and then I shall close and sit and try to enjoy this very cold and rainy , snowy day and dream of Florida !
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
