About nine months ago, I moved to this lake with my daughter and our two dogs, Lucy and Lilly. Life has been, to say the least, quite different but very fullfilling. I have strived to fill my days with my two blogs and a new life close to my children and grandchildren. It has been challenging at times but lots of fun most of the time.
This blog, unlike Lindaraxa's Garden, has been a place to post about my new life, our dogs and all our adventures living in the country. As most of you know, I am at heart a "city" girl and a "northener" but have lived in the country when I was very young and in the South when I was newly married so it hasn't been that tough to adapt. As a matter of fact my son was born in Asheville, North Carolina. Who would have thought he would marry a Southener and come down to live not too far from where he was born.
Life here is simpler and more down to earth than New York or Florida. I have learned a lot this year and made wonderful friends both through this blog and on Twitter where Lucy and I "hang out" with a group of Westies and their moms from all over the world. @Snowywestie, @Westiesp @Macintoshwestie @Angusfala and @Missbusybiz are some of those friends and to them I say thank you for a lot of laughs and for being there when I have needed a break. None of my friends (or my kids!) can understand how a grown woman can have fun on Twitter but we do and the friendships I have made there are probably as solid as most of the ones I have made throughout my life.
To my fellow bloggers who follow and comment on this blog, I have left you a message on Lindaraxa's Garden. To the rest of my readers, thank you for subscribing and commenting, it is most appreciated.
I look forward to another year full of fun, good recipes and lots of entertaining ideas.
|Merry Christmas Y'All... don't forget to feed the doggies!|
