I read almost everyday but never post! So I thought I would join in the fun finally! I live in the south of France on my little homestead. Well, I do have a couple of goats, chickens and a dog. Oh and let's not forget 7 children and a hubby!! Actually only have 4 kids at home now (18,17,11 and 6)

I get my kicks by making as much food and such from scratch. I've tried my hands at soapmaking and cheesemaking. I'm taking sewing lessons weekly. We have solar panels on our roof but sell the electricity to the electric company. It's great to send THEM a bill once a year. My hubby dreams of having an energy self sufficient home! He's looking into building a windmill...

I'm celebrating the big 50 on september 11th... It's a bummer having my birthday on that particular day but...

Hope to participate more often if you'll have me!

Good to hear from you, mama. I bet that is a hoot - to send a bill to the power company!

Welcome back!

I dream of being free from the electric company. Hubby isn't a handyman so we'll have to hire someone to install ours. Gotta get free of the mortgage first.

Sounds like you have your hands full. 50 was as bad as I thought it was going to be. I'm in my mid-fifties now and just trying to stay healthy as I get older.

Thanks for joining in!!!

I'm a new kid here, but with a few more trips around the sun than you. I am intrigued by the various life styles from the people here, certainly a member from France will only add to that. Nope, I didn't remember you. But, I will now.

Your command of English is impressive.

Welcome to the Family.

Welcome mamainfrance. What is the time difference? I am going to enjoy hearing about the way things are done in France. You will have a different perspective on things so we will learn new things and so will you.

I second the recipes.

There's a 6 hour time difference with your east coast. So when it's noon here at home it's 6 am for you!
