Welcome to my little blog on this big old wide web, I am Canadian born, 4th gen born in my family in alberta. At my heart I am still a Western girl. I grew up in a farming family with horse’s, hounds, hunting and fishing following a pipeline father and a very strong mother who could make us a home. Times were often lean in my childhood, now you would say that we lived rough.. We moved a lot, and we seemed to find these little run down farms, sometimes we would get lucky and have power and running water.. but not always.. wood stoves, outdoor bathrooms, hauling water and breaking land for gardening, canning and forage was all part and parcel.
I has a good amount of adventure in my early twenties, meet my husband at the age of 26 and we moved to Yellowknife NWT, where we spent time on the land, traveled, camped and canoe’d many lakes. We were transferred to Iqaluit, Nunavut and moved from the bush covered with lakes to the barren artic coast, I was suddenly in a fly in and fly out town that had 3rd world conditions and English was the minor lang.. it was a wild time, as Iqaluit had just been made the capital of the newly created Nunavut, Canada’s newest northern territory. We where a closer hop skip and jump plane trip to Greenland then to anywhere in Canada.
We spent five years in this amazing place, camping, fishing and so much more was learned by the locals. Hubby was transferred to Ottawa and we bought the farm, I have lived longer on my farm then I have lived anywhere else in my whole life..
The farm continues to grow in many ways as do myself and hubby! I started this blog six plus years ago to help keep my family back home in touch with my day.. its has grown into so much more.. and that is because of you! my readers.. you are amazing! Many Blessing to you!
