I am definitely a country girl that loves to garden, quilt, preserve, hunt, and read. I love my family more than anything in the world. I live with my husband of fifty years. We have a son, daughter, granddaughter and grandson. We live on a 500+ acre farm in Virginia with about 75 cows & bulls, thirty chickens, and three dogs.
Just A Swingin’
Forty-degree nights definitely don’t mean summertime but when the porch swing goes back in position summer is not far off.
She got a board replaced and a new paint job. She got new chains. All she needs now if a soft cushion, some corner pillows and a warm quilt or blanket. I’ll make those pillows and cushion sometime this week.
The entire family loves swinging and can’t wait for the grandkids to join me this summer for some easy visiting on the front porch!!
Can’t wait for friends to visit so we can sit together catching up on happenings in our mutual families!
I'm just a country girl living life my way on a farm with my husband and our critters. We've been married fifty years and been farming all of that time. We've moved from one family farm to one of our own and then to another family farm that has been in the family through at least six generations. In this day and age we could not have picked a better life!

Oh my gosh, thinking of porch swings takes me all the way back to swinging with my grandma on her porch swing in upstate NY. Of course, newer homes don’t have porches anymore, so people have been missing this comforting and bonding tradition. What a loss!! Enjoy it all, Rita.
Wish you could be here to enjoy with me!! We could share alot of our jokes!!!

That would be so much fun. So special. 💕
Love the pic of your grands on the swing. Brings back memories of visiting family in rural VA when I was a child.
Declan loves the swing, almost puts him in a trance but that was then!!!
