I know I have been away for a while and I am so sorry for that. Once I returned home from Michigan and the grands, I just seem to not be able to get past the winter ho hums. I miss the grands terribly, they live so far. My son in the military is in Oklahoma with his family and that is pretty far from us. So much has happened in 2013 and it was not my best year, we suffered a great tragedy a little over a month ago. My oldest son Joshua went home to be with the lord. I hope that 2014 will be much better with much happiness and good memories.
I have been working on getting this new home in Florida all situated and to our liking and finally I think we are there, I am not the best fan of Florida, but it is for my husbands health that we came here. Don't get me wrong , the scenery is beautiful in places, the ocean is magnificent! We are very close to Daytona Beach and the home of the Nascar big race which is coming very soon I might add. We have made some wonderful friends here in our little park . Our home is small and cute and we have all we need, I am just not a fan of the really hot humid weather. Never have been really as I suffer from allergies especially from molds, I don't care for the really "so hot, you sweat the minute you get out of bed " weather , but I do like the winters . I must admit that I truly miss my South Carolina home and all the wonderful memories and friends we left behind there. That was the one home that truly felt like "home " and where I thought I would grow very old. The house was amazing and where we lived was beautiful! This may sound crazy but I even miss of all things my favorite radio station and no station here fills the void. But I must stop all of this whining and shame on me for do so.
On to happier things , after almost 8 long years my son Justin and his family are just 49 days away from leaving the military behind and moving this way . I am so happy that we will have family closer to us that I can not wait for the day when I can finally hug my family again and have one of my grands to play with . I truly wish my daughter and her family lived closer , I miss them soo very much every day and there is so much I am missing of my girls growing up .
Life is not so bad here, I could say . I have more time to do what ever it is I care to do every day , I have been doing a lot of work on my crochet and my knitting making sweaters and hats and mittens for grands and for us. I have learned how to pinch some pennies and make more things for us such and air fresheners , furniture polishes , and soaps . I have expanded my baking skills to making more and more yummy things and less buying of things . Even if it does not save some pennies, the enjoyment and the knowledge that I can do this gives a great satisfaction.
So that is what has been keeping us busy here in Florida. I promise that now that we have settled in I shall return much more often and share much more what is going on in our little piece here in Sunflower Farms. I hope that you are all doing well and that life is taking care of you all as best it can. My thoughts and prayers go out for all of you that are dealing with all this very cold and snowy weather this winter. I was born and raised in Michigan and lived there many many years . I must say I do not miss it anymore. Even my South Carolina home is suffering this winter. So I pray for everyone and that they will come through this winter safely. Until later friends , take care , stay warm and be kind to one another, and tell someone that you love them today , tomorrow is not promised ! Hugs !

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
