My husband and I raised 9 children on a hobby farm and discovered fulfillment and joy.
We moved a couple of years ago and are now renovating an 1886 home on 7 acres. We are also planting fruit trees, clearing brush, building stone stacked fences and adding to the already extensive gardens. I crotchet bedspreads as gifts to my children. (and NOT the tacky things your great-aunt crochetted)
I started writing again, after a 32 year sabbatical and I throughly enjoy myself.
