Worst blogger ever

Worst blogger ever!

Yep, that’s me the worst blogger ever lately. I haven’t even made an attempt to do a post in forever. Apparently I need a big break from it all. But I’m back and am going to give the blog a dose of extra effort right now. 

I spent the summer gardening, canning, and adding new beds for the next season. Hubby and I also planted a new fruit orchard. Over the years our old orchard has been taken out one tree at time. Some by the lawn mower (a tree can only take so much ramming into it before it gives up and dies), some just have never fruited so I pulled them, one was uprooted by a truck that slid off the driveway during a snowstorm and who knows what happened to the rest.

Anyhow many are gone so a new orchard was needed. I canned or froze everything that was harvested from the garden this year along with raising meat chickens and turkeys for the freezer. I feel Im set going into winter and wont have the need to go to the grocery store. So bring on the snow I’m ready! 

My 3 year lease was up on my favorite truck so I took that back. I wasn’t willing to pay the huge payment to keep it. I purchased a used vehicle, had it two weeks, and totaled it out in a deer accident. Ugh! I hate vehicle shopping, I hate it so much I’d rather be without for the time being. I don’t have anything particular in mind that I’d love to have so I guess me and my money will sit tight for now while I pray on it. When the timing is right something will come along. 

There’s so much more I have to share but I’ll do that in future posts. I just wanted to let you know I’m still here and will be back soon with fall things from around the cabin.
