Today I'm doing...Feb 26

Today is FREEZING cold! All the animals are cuddled up in the barn while I am under blankets crocheting. I am working on this - Simple Chain Infinity Scarf - while watching the birds. When it gets a wee bit warmer I will go out and snap some photos of my animal family to show you. :) What are YOU doing today?

Me, the GAA Girl

GAA stands for, "God, Art, Animals." Those three things are the things I love most in life. I was contemplating being the GAAFF Girl but that doesn't quite sound or look right. :) So let me just tell you that Family and Friends are right up there too! I am a teenaged girl who lives on a farm. I have 16 chickens, 7 cats, a parakeet, and a turtle. I want to be somewhat of a homesteader someday. My dream goes like this - chickens and ducks for eggs and meat, goats, and/or possibly a cow for milk, one or a few LGD(s) for protection and pet, cats for mice, and any other critter that happens my way. :) I plan on raising them as organically as possible. I would also love a garden! Maybe not one to provide me with things year round but one to at least to give me fresh fruits and veggies for the summer at at least some to freeze and can. Of course, a husband and children (who I will homeschool) fits in there somewhere too. :) A big dream, but I hope some of it happens! We will see what God has in store for me, my dream or His, which when I learn of it will become mine too!
