Didja ever feel like you really might be losing your marbles? Like you're truly starting the slide down the slippery slope? Like your brain can no longer maintain its tenuous grasp on reality? It's either that or somebody is trying to gaslight me. I have lost an important file. I remember making the file just a day or so ago. Here at my desk. I remember putting the papers in the file folder. I do not keep a messy desk. I don't know where I could have put it. It's not where it should be. I have looked everywhere. It is driving me mad.
I live with my husband on a small homestead in Northeastern Minnesota. Our daughter (Beyond the Fork in the Road) currently lives in a small cabin in the woods not too far from us.
Our place is located outside a small tourist town and a two and a half hour's drive from the nearest big city. Trips to the city are infrequent, well-planned, and exhausting!
We currently raise chickens and have hives of honey bees. Raising some of our meat and most of our fruits and vegetables is a priority for us; so, along with our birds for meat and eggs, we have fruit trees, berry patches and a huge vegetable garden.
Quilting is my passion, and I could happily spend each day in my quilt studio if I weren't happily spending each day out in the garden. Good thing we have winters up here; Mother Nature helps keep my life balanced.
