New Adventures

Here we are....two kooks!
We've been married almost 40 years and are still as kooky as ever.
It is said that 'time flies when you're having fun'.
We met when I was 15 and he was 17.
The adventure began!
We married quite young...I was only 17 and he 19!
Six children later, we are now approaching retirement!
Wow!  In four short years 'hubby' will retire!
 But, we won't wait for retirement to have adventures.
We both love gardening around our little 'farmette'.
We both love camping.
We both enjoy hiking and biking.
We both enjoy fishing.
We both love spending time with our 8 grandchildren!
And when the day is done you will find us 
both snoozing in our recliner rockers!
You just gotta love life and live it out loud!

Stop and Smell the Roses

Beautiful Pink Roses

I am enjoying these beauties this spring!  A neighbor down the country road
from us gave me a tiny little rose bush start a couple of years ago.
This year they are showing off their splendor!

I love drying rose petals and making potpourri. 
I will definitely have plenty of pink roses! 

Here is a lovely website that shares how to make

Spring, Summer and Fall
are super busy times here on our little 'farmette'.
There's lots of planting, tilling, pulling weeds, gathering herbs,
picking veges, making herbal remedies, preserving food,
and soooo much more!
I plant various garden locations on our almost five acres
with fun settee spots on purpose.
I have to take the time to 'smell the roses' 
and enjoy the beauty of all of the flowers.
Otherwise, I would be 'wore slick out'.

Here are a few roses that I am drying:

Here are two grand-daughter 'rose buds'

 So, I encourage you to take time to 
Smell the Roses!
