Here is where I start the journey to someplace out there in the wide, electronic universe. Here is where I start the journey to visiting with others and to helping others, and sharing ideas, and thoughts and recipes, photos and enjoyment. Here is where I share what we, as a couple have learned. While we are somewhat newbies to farming and blogging, we still want to see how others enjoy, or even stress, if I may use that word.
Its been a long road from recovery of a life I knew when my children were born to now. Many years ago I never dreamed I would be in this place that I am at now. Yet, in many ways I am much happier and better off, and although I struggle with issues from day to day, I am thankful for all that I have.
Now I must be frank, We are very strong Christians, and I do hope that I do not change someones opinion about what we do or why. I am not here to preach, or offend or judge. I simply want to share and allow others into our lives, to get that glimpse of what is out there. Farming is not easy and while we work outside the home currently, its my main idea to eventually stay home full time. My children are grown up and moved out, and grand-kids are around and while I am searching my heart for what is best in my life, I constantly feel that I belong at home. I know there are many out there that feel the same way. Many who have babies and long to stay home with them. I was able to do that when mine were little. I enjoyed it and I miss it, and I tell my adult kids to enjoy the times they have and will have in the future.
I am making bread while I am typing this. I actually make my own flour to. I have wheat issues and while its not just wheat, it is what is put into wheat. Hence the reason I make my own. I can eat my own bread and not have any problems. I Will eventually share that with someone if requested, the recipe, and how I make the flour. There is also a story there behind wheat. We grow wheat, and there is an abundance of wheat stored in the United States, while many go starving in our own country, we have to much wheat. Wheat is a huge commodity. As I stated though, it isn’t the wheat that hurts our bodies, it is what they stick into the wheat being processed into things that hurts us.
For now I must get busy and back to my bread making. My dogs are napping, I fed the chickens, two other stories for later, and the cats are snoozing.
Have a great afternoon.
