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.

Information on Freecycle

I got so many comments about not knowing about Freecycle. It is nationwide. All you have to do is go to http://www.freecycle.org/

You have to sign up for a Yahoo ID, which is no big deal, it is easy to do. If you want to check and see if your city or county has a Freecycle just put in one or the other with your state and see what comes up. If you don't have one in your county, there may be one in the county next to you, so check that as well if its convenient for you. Or you can hit the Browse Groups tab and look under your state.

I didnt know a thing about it til someone mentioned it to me here in this area.

A lot of what I see are infant and childrens clothes. Sometimes you will see couches, tvs, old Christmas decorations, just about anything you can think of..books. I got a lot of Shelbys homeschool books passed to me through a homeschool mom on Freecycle in Cartersville. Its really a wonderful thing! Check it out near you, let me know if you come across anything good. Oh, and you can set it up where you get emails straight from your group so you dont have to go to the site to look and see what has been posted. You have to be fast sometimes. I answered mine 20 seconds after the post, and just barely claimed it first! Good luck on finding some treasures in your area. Don't forget, you can post something you don't want or need anymore that you think someone else might could use too! :)

I saw your chicken calendar at Tractor Supply today. I like the outhouse one too. We had to go buy some milk for the calf. Paula

I've never done the freecycle thing and have heard several have problems with people, but I'm sure every one is different. It's a nice idea IF it works.
Take care, Chrissie

I'd like to believe that I'm that one that mentioned freecycle to you. LOL If not, let me remain delusional.

I have a hard time getting anything through there and mostly what they post here in Cartersville are want ads. :(

I would love to hit another yard sale pick up though.  Dirk and I brought back three pick up truck loads and got a lot of Katie homeschool stuff that way.  I sure do miss teaching her.  Who'd'a thunk it?

I will give it a go, I would have alot of stuff I could put on there.  I have bags of clothes, many new with tags I've never worn, that I would like to give away.  I am sick of donating everything to the Salvation Army ~ they aren't very nice anymore.
