Well, here it goes! 'The Bard's Hall Contest' got me blogging again, so wish me luck!
~Here’s what I’ll discuss in my blog~
I wrote in my journal when I was a teenage - everything about my classmates, boys, or just hanging out on the weekend amongst other stuff. I had plenty to say back then; now, not so much. I got married young, after five children later - who are all grown and left home - three got married and are now divorced. My other two sons commented, "If this is how it all goes down, I'm never getting married!"
Even after all this, my five children found someone else to be with, but are now taking it easy, not jumping into marriage or at least not at this time. Out of these three failed marriages, I have six wonderful grandchildren. They appear to accept their parents’ separation; well, not a first, but let's just say they are adapting. They are growing so fast!
Hubby and I lived on a forty-acre hobby farm for thirty years and have now moved to a smaller home that sits on eight acres. It has a small orchard, a huge garden where we grow our herbs and vegetable, and good size lawn. We love getting down and dirty, digging in the soil and watching things grow.
My opinion pieces will be me keeping up on the latest news that's on YouTube. We watch Newsmax TV, The Next News Network, and Black Conservative Patriot to name a few - They comment on what they think is happening. I also go to https://x22report.com/, he tells it as it is. There’s no bright, shiny propaganda like the main street media likes to spout. I call them the ‘Echo Chamber Incorporated!’ Beware, I tell it as I see it, no holding back here!
I love to cook and will have some great recipes that I’ll share with everyone. We started with growing tomatoes in the garden, then decided to go to greenhouse growing where we grew lots of tomatoes which we sold at the Farmer's Market. We did that for fourteen years and are not doing that anymore - It’s a lot of work!
I do get angry at what is happening to our great country! Where we were finally energy independent, we're back to begging from countries who hate us. Gas prices have gone up, food prices will go up, things like this you will hear me commenting on.
I will also tell a funny story how hubby and I met. It made Lornda laugh, so I think it's legit - a 'comedy of errors' on our part. It's a little embarrassing, too!
