To my (already) friends ~ the following post is for the Ultimate Blog Party. You are more than welcome to read it, however, if you do not wish to be bored to tears, I understand…really! I finally posted about the Spring Giveaway, so be sure and go here. Sorry, I was a day late (story of my life), but we had buyers show up yesterday interested in some of the (extra) goats. We sold five and ended up with one very unhappy granddaughter (Keighly, who is 3). Sometimes, lessons from the farm are difficult when you have to part with a baby you aren’t ready to see go. I gave her a dollar and she decided it was a million bucks ~ therefore redirected and off on another adventure! All is well once more.
Ultimate Blog Party Post ~ “Me”
(Just for the record, Mck Linky # 1509!)
I am definitely “family friendly”! It comes from having so much family, right? Or possibly, that would make one “Not so Family Friendly,” depending on one’s own experience.
My family experience is great…just a little rough around the edges…But my blog is definitely Family Friendly!
I live in rural Oklahoma. You can read about all the critters we raise in the header of my blog and they often gain notoriety in my blog when I talk about the craziness of having so many animals.
We are large family, of which I am - Mom/grandmother/wife/sister/dil/teacher/nurse/ ~ you get the picture! Kind of a female “jack of all trades,” or the typical domestic engineer.
We have five children, two of which are still at home (13 & 14), three grown children, nine grandchildren (with #’s 10 & 11 on the way). It is a wonderful thing that we live in the country, as we are quite noisy.
I run a home-based business, but I do not work very hard at doing so, because it was more fun before it became a business. I make soy wax and palm wax candles and on occasion I play with beeswax. I love making candles, but I dislike deadlines and bookkeeping.
We have dairy goats, which allows me to make cheese and I am learning how to make soap. I think I am going to enjoy these two endeavors nearly as much as making candles.
We presently home school our two youngest sons and two of the grandsons (usually all referred to collectively as “the boys” because the two grandsons live with us, also) and I normally have the other grandchicks and roosters a few days a week also.
Life is pretty full at the present and I blog, to air-out my thoughts, feelings and emotions. Plus, I love the fellowship and the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people!
I am a Christian and enjoy good Bible studies and I am especially interested in the Hebraic roots of Christianity. When I have time, I also study naturopathic medicine.
Currently, I am doing a Spring Giveaway, and everyone is welcome to participate! As they say ~ the more, the merrier! Just go here.
If you follow me, I will follow you (sounds like a song, huh? “I will follow you, wherever you may go…”) Sorry! Anyway, as I was saying, if you follow me, I will return the favor. Just leave me a comment to make sure I can find you. I try to visit everyone who is following me, but not everyday…it would be too difficult. I still make the rounds as often as time permits. In the meantime, make yourself at home! I love company (especially company I don’t have to clean the house for!)
