Okay we have a pig and she'll be ready this december. Ben brought her home one day and said. "Hey, I bought a pig!" I keep bringing her lots of skimmed or soured milk in hopes we might get a prosciutto out of her. I can dream, right . . . . Anyway I know my posting has been non- existant. Most of the reason I blog is for our extended family and Gravanga folk and Ben has started a private family blog so I have been less motivated to post. I don't really know how I feel about the blog thing. I might be theming this blog a bit more towards homesteading or self-sufficiency or something. . . . . something. We'll see. I am enjoying quietude away from the computer in an event while edifying my soul with vampire romance novels.

The big news is we have moved out to the sticks and are renting an old farmhouse. It is really beautiful and near the famous Fort Valley of Virginia. I really love being near the national forrest and the girls have been spending all their time swimming in passage creek and hunting frogs. I love summer.
