Hey there, Sarah here.......Laurie's oldest daughter.
Turns out, you're stuck with me for the next week as mom and dad have skipped town to tropical weather just in time for us to get hit with a foot of snow.
Jealous? Yeah me too.
I was left here in charge of the blog, the farm, and the critters. I was asked to not reveal anything too embarrassing, to break anything, burn anything down, or lose any chickens.
Well, I'll see what I can do, but I certainly didn't make any promises.
Mom did want to let you all know that while she's got her toes in the sand, she is thinking of you all and sends a sunny hello.
Well, we might as well get to know each other a bit, since I'll be here for a few days.
Bare with me, my mom has rocked this blogging thing, and well....I have not.
A bit about me:
I, like my mother, love junk.
I also am a DIY gal
I, unlike my mother, do not cook.....often nor well.
I'm a mid (to late) 20-something and have been married for a whoopin' 6 months.
I graduated in Animal and Vet Science and spent my school days milking and taking care of cows. I love farm life, and hope to soon run a small farm of my own.
For now, I work as a scientific technician in a veterinary diagnostics lab, where there is a whole warehouse dedicated to antique and vintage lab equipment. Yeah, you name it. When things are slow and quiet at work, I go out back to the warehouse and drool over all the antique glass lab-ware, metal rusty lab trinkets, etc.
I dream my someday house will have a touch of vintage science.
Sometimes the lab decides to get rid of such things and puts them up for grabs....and I come home with some pretty sweet loot which I carefully tuck away for the day when we buy our first house and I can decorate with my vintage science memorabilia
My latest loot from the lab is a sweet vintage microscope circa early 1900's.
My husband is into science as well. He's finishing his PhD in biomedical engineering in cancer research.
You can call us nerdy, it's ok- we take it as a compliment.
Anyways, it was so nice to meet you! We'll talk more soon, but for now, I've got to go out and start shoveling a path to those chickens.
