We are living the pioneer life in the new world way.
My blog is meant to take the reader many places. I may write about a restaurant we visited, or a place I visit with my Friday Friends group, or a new recipe we tried, or maybe more personal sharing something from our farm, gardening, animal humor and whatever else comes to me that week. It is simply my opinions, tips, treasures and treats. IT IS OUR LIFE.
I enjoy every minute of my family time. I like knowing my children spend quality time as a family. I like shutting my phone off after 5:00 so I can cook for my family. I enjoy spending my summer days after work and weekends tending to our gardens and teaching my children how to grow, harvest, and can their own food. I like knowing they are learning compassion, responsibility, and the circle of life with our horses, goats, chickens, rabbits, dogs and cats. We work hard from sunrise to nightfall caring for our animals and land, working, travel hockey, basketball, lacrosse, voice lessons, cooking, cleaning and ending with a great game of Yahtzee before bed. Some days start at 6:00 a.m. and continue straight through to 10:30 p.m. with the nightly feeding of the animals. That is followed with showers, packing lunches and finally bed time. We spend many days visiting landmarks in our area or touring a new store or flea market. We snowmobile, hike and ice skate. We look forward to visiting with friends when there is time. We go apple, cherry, and strawberry picking and watch maple syrup being made every year. We visit new restaurants, pack picnic lunches and spend the day at Fort Niagara. We spend many days at the Erie County Fair taking in all the history and enjoying the free shows. We cook breakfast, lunch and dinner in our pie tins over our open bonfire and end the evening with some night swimming.
