Introduction Me I am an old time farmer who has decided to make a living at it. I have a homestead kitchen license so now I sell baked goods at farmers markets and a couple of stores. I want to give freelance writing a shot as well so we will see what the future will bring. The freelance writing will be starting this week. It is a volunteer job, but writing just the same. I will be writing articles on New Hampshire farms for The New Hampshire Farm Network. Pretty excited. I think my four older children think I am crazy, but my soon to be 11 year old loves it.We are as back to nature as you can get within reason. No outhouse or washing clothes in the river as of yet anyway. But I have definitely given up the dryer. She thinks it means never having to take a shower!! I love the peace and quiet. Now I see why Tasha Tudor insisted on living as she did. It couldn't be anymore perfect. And I hope I get to accomplish some of my dream. Adding a new part to my life.
Interests My interests are vast but my favorites are creating great to not so great gardens, quilting or taking care of my chickens. I love it all. And I paint but haven't done it for quite awhile .I am hoping to get back to it this winter and maybe get something sold.
Favorite Movies My favorite movies: anything good Spencer's Mountain, Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation, and of coarse Gone With the Wind, the original version. Our all time number one movie however is On Golden Pond. My daughter thinks Billy will be going by in the boat at any minute!!
Favorite Music Everything for music depends on the mood sometimes we listen to classic christmas carols in August. But we are the biggest Dan Zanes followers. We love classical type music example Miss Potter movie music and the baby's favorite of the moment is from the movie Becoming Jane, which I do think she has great taste the music is wonderful.
Favorite Books Books are the ultimate, they are probably my most favorite thing, but to learn they are wonderful. My favorite author is Alice Hoffman with James Lee Burke right behind. But however I will stop everything to read or look at anything by Tasha Tudor or Beatrix Potter.
