About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

Busy Time Of The Year...Rambling Thoughts

Good Saturday morning. Boy is it chilly this morning! We have a heavy blanket of fog this morning also.

This weekend will be another busy one. We will have company coming again. Brian and his twin girls will be coming to spend the night tonight. I am going to make some nice warm chili and cornbread for supper.

You know, I am somewhat of a reclusive person. When the occasion comes that I mingle with other people I do well, but then I am ready to crawl back into my hole and be left alone for a while.

With that being said, during the latter third of the year..October through December I have to make up my mind that I am going to be a social butterfly...because I don't really have a choice. For some reason things always tend to get really hectic and busy from Shelbys birthday on through Christmas. Seems like almost every weekend there is someone inviting us over or someone coming over for something. Next weekend is no exception.

Next weekend we will be visiting Teddy and Adrian and their family. Adrian and Ian have been friends since high school...it is his birthday coming up and Teddy wants to have a get together. I do enjoy seeing them and Shelby always enjoys visiting with Matthew, thier son. He is a year younger than Shelby.

Then there is Thanksgiving and Christmas time. New Years. All the coming and going and visiting.

After all of this...I will be ready for January and February. These two months are when winter really settles in around here and we get some solitude.

Now this may sound depressing and lonely for me...but it really isnt. I thrive when I dont have so much outside influence. I know that sounds backwards...but I like to keep things calm and simple..and lets face it, most peoples lives are not, and that gets me worked up when I am around it and hear about it. I like quiet uneventful weekends, that is just me...yes I guess I may be a bit boring. ;) I am not into drama.


Onto other things...this was just a rambling thoughts morning entry, time for a real entry now.

I'm pretty social but I don't like to go and go either.  I can see a difference in my kids when we spend a lot of time at home.  On the other hand, my husband loves and even thrives away from home...weirdo...lol

I don't think that's weird at all.  I'm a loner also.  Other people just get on my NERVES!!!!  It's seems like they are never happy with anything they have....they always want something bigger & better!  On top of that they have to tell EVERYONE ABOUT IT LIKE IT THEY ARE TRYING TO IMPRESS YOU.  To me it just shows how SILLY THEY ARE!!!!  I like the SIMPLE life!!!!  The COUNTRY LIFE!!!!  So I understand totally!!!

I am the same way!!!!!  I do enjoy my periods of socializing, but am so glad to get back home....where things are...normal.  

I hope you have a wonderful weekend

You sound so much like me, I can't wait to get the obligatory visiting over and get back to just being with me, Doug & the critters.

What do you see going on at the odd house you wrote about? Is the man or who ever still adding those beautiful things? Paula

You just described me and you don't even know me.  I am not a hermit but I love my own company and am just as happy being a homebody and doing a piece of art or a craft or making a meal or reading a book as I am when I'm forced into a very public situation. I do better with fewer people.  I seem to have fun most of the time but if I had my preference, it would be time at home without anyone other than my immediate family.

I'm like you the older I get I like my peace and quiet and now I'm doing that alone which is fine, but everyone tells me I'll never find someone by staying home. I just tell them maybe I don't want anybody yet.
Take care, Chrissie
