All about Me. Thought it would be a good way for us to get to
know each other a little better. I look forward to meeting you!
~Who I am~
Executive Chef, who's dream is to supply the majority of my family's food from our farm.
I'm getting closer to that goal
I love to cook and create
I read cookbooks like one would a novel
Yet, I Never, Ever, Ever, use a recipe
I collect old kitchen gadgets and rolling pins
It has become an obsession
I am currently redoing this wall.
Yup, I'm changing it up ~ to showcase more gadgets!
I AM A JUNKIN JUNKY
~ Where I live ~
I live on 128 acres in a remote Maine town.
1 mile to the closest neighbor
12 miles to the closest store
62 miles to where I work
I am currently flock keeper of 50 barred rocks
and 20 pearl guineas.
They are my entertainment
I am frugal in all aspects of my life.
We are building our dream ~ out of pocket.
We are currently in year four.
Many rooms are still at the insulation stage.
~ My Favorite Room~
We have done everything ourselves.
Not buying until we find a bargain.
we bought the commercial hood from a restaurant that went under
after 2 months of operation.
~ Something you may not know about me ~
I live without TV. I need quiet time.
My brain is constantly on overload creating
recipes, planning the next construction project on the farm,
gardening, DIY projects
The list goes on and on.
There is no room for the noise created by the TV,
so several years ago I unplugged.
This is what I choose to fill my brain with now
~ One more thing you may not know about me ~
Two of my sisters, myself, and our husbands recently
bought our parents homestead and golf course.
My Grandfather established the course in 1927.
The property was settled by my great, great, great...
well you get it...in 1754.
22 years before our country gained it's independence.
To say I'm a Maine Girl is an understatement.
I have roots ~ deep roots ~ in Maine
and on that family property.
Which creates a deep in my soul desire to create those roots
for my children and my children's children.
A gift created for me and our family many generations ago.
~ Why I Blog ~
As a child, I would spend hours reading
the diaries of my ancestors
I wanted a journal for my children and their children of
Life on the farm.
and I blog because of
Each and every one of you add to my life.
