About Me

I've been living in Vermont since 1984, and love the way of life here.  The climate suits me perfectly - love the 4 seasons, and even the cold temperatures of winter.  I have 3 fantastic kids who are all adults now - each has gone out to see the world, and has returned to Vermont.  What more could a mom ask for?  I became a grandmother in August 2012, and it is just as rewarding as I anticipated.  I wish I could retire so I could do all the things I love to do.  I would really like to make my 1/4 acre into a sustainable homestead, but that would eliminate a nice safe area for my dog to run and exercise.  I have done a good job so far with 7 chickens, an organic 14x20 garden, fruit trees, fruit bushes, composting and collecting rain water.  Now if I could only find a life partner...
