I was born and raised a city girl. The only thing I knew about country living was learned during the few weeks I stayed with my grandmother during the summers.
We harvested from her garden and I learned to cook. They had a cow. She was milked twice a day. The milk was put into an icebox and some of it churned into...

Nice warm weather brings outside activities gloriously played out in walks, rides through the countryside and for me, riding a four-wheeler for the first time in my life.
I have always watched as the others in my family scurried off on their treks throughout the pastures and trails behind our log house, patiently waiting for the...

Well, I do!
Being the Meme of all of my boys, I have had lessons in just...

Are we still in the South, Toto? It certainly does not seem as if we are living inside the Mason-Dixon Line here for the past few days.
The weatherman said that this is the coldest our weather has been since 2003. Can you remember how cold you were 12 years ago?
The cold weather does bring back several really good...

“Times gone by and never brought to mind
Should old acquaintance be forgot and days of Auld Lang Syne.”
“Times Gone By” is somewhat of a melancholy melody, as it serves to remind us of the year and years gone by in our lives.
I suppose I get somewhat overemotional on each New Year as I experience...

Please, please for all that is righteous, do not bring a “weighing machine” anywhere close to me for the next few months.
I cannot even make myself say “scale.” I don’t know about you but I have eaten any and everything that was not running or walking away from me for the past two weeks. Actually I...
