If you have been reading my blog lately, you have noticed that I haven't had any pictures on here. Well, I've misplaced my camera. Hubby says I lost it. No, I have misplaced it. I know it is around here somewhere. I hope though, that it's not outside somewhere under the snow. I could have easily set it down outside so that I could do something and just forgot it. It's driving me crazy! I believe my mind is gone. Or did I misplace that too.
Anyways, last week me and hubby went to meet a fellow blogger Catherine. Her blog is Kentucky Hollows. I'm still not sure about the link thing. I'll get there. But for now, you can find her in the list of blogs that I follow. She was kind enough to give me a fiddle. Yes, GIVE me a fiddle. And they say there are no more nice people in this world. Ha! While we were there she was so worried about our how her house looked. To me, it just looked like work in progress. It has so much potential. She was exactly like she is in her blog. So friendly! Her girls are so beautiful and full of life. (As was her Lab. lol) But what surprised me was, she was doing all of this gardening and homesteading on just a small piece of flat land. Now, my comment on her place being small is all relative. We have 50 acres of almost flat land. She has a lot of land, but there is more hill than flat. The Appalachians are like that. I was impressed with what she did with what she had. It was awesome.
It got me to thinking, not all people have the good luck of inheriting a farm. If Hubby hadn't, would I still be trying to live like I am. Or, would I be like everybody else, worrying about how big our screen was on our tv? Do I want to live a sustainable lifestyle because of WERE I live? Now that Catherine of Kentucky Hollows has shown me what can be done on a smaller piece of property, it makes me want to utilize our land better. Bigger garden, more live stock(pigs, milk cow, maybe some wool animals),fruit trees, maybe even something more that I haven't thought of yet.hehehhe.
But, then again, I might just misplace them too. lol
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, misplacer
