Some changes

Hey, yall,

   I know its been a while, but there are many reasons for that. One is I have been having computer issues,  two, there has been a lot of sad things going on in my church, and being the preachers family, well, we catch the brunt of everything. We need lots of prayers sent this way, my dad has lost two very close childhood friends to cancer in the last few months, and he has been preaching for almost 9 yrs now, and he is having health issues and he is getting burnt out, I think. The stress is getting to him, and its taking a toll. But on to other things now.
    My black bantam hen, has been broody for about a month, she is now finally over that, and she is molting, there was black feathers everywhere today! It looked like a coyote had gotten her! And its getting cooler in our mountains, it was in the 30's like it is supposed to be this time of year, and now its warm again! Last year we had snow this time of year and it didn't melt until April! It did snow on Mt. LeConte a few weeks ago, which is in TN, and in the Great Smokey Mountains national park, it dusted, I love it! I love snow in the mountains, this is my favorite time of year! It is supposed to be 33 degrees tonight, more like fall.

  Oh and one more thing, I guess you have noticed that I changed the name of my blog, I needed a better name, and things were all mixed up, so I figured it all out, and our little homestead in the mountains is the new name of my blog, I hope you like it. Well, I hope everyone has had a great week! I hope I will be able to catch up now!

The enchanting Blue Ridge Mountains I call home.

About Me

My photo
I live in the mountains of Western North Carolina, in a little camper, with my husband and family. We are trying to become self sufficient and live off the land. I am sick of all the sad news on TV, the economy, and the evil world we live in, so we are trying to make things as simple as possible and get back to the basics. I think if everyone did that, and had faith in God the world might be a better place. Follow along, as we live life in our little tin can, and try to make it a home, while learning to homestead.
