Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

A beautiful ending

The day is almost over, and I am tired.
I was getting ready to turn on the outside Christmas lights when I looked outside to see this beautiful sunset. It is cold out 28 right now, and its going to get colder before morning..
I found a message in this tells me that I have had a long day, I made another batch of carmels, and also some carmel corn. Dressed my jam jars with pretty red calico covers. Wrapped some jerky, gathered and folded 2 dryer loads of clothes, it is time for rest. Don't ya think? Now I wonder what I can fix for an easy dinner.....and where is my MaryJane magazine?

A challenge

I came across this quote today by a women I find extremely inspirational.
I don't often express to others my private thoughts about some things that I think about in my quiet time, I think it is because I don't sometimes have the courage to say what is important to me, for fear of being laughed at or perhaps not taken seriously by some, or perhaps even criticized, I do not really know why but today I felt compelled to speak out.
I think it says volumes about women who are returning to their roots, who are ready to take the first steps to living their dreams. I think we all have what it takes, its just a matter of believing it.
I challenge all my sisters to stretch their minds and think about this too.
" One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest." ....Maya Angelo
