Welcome to my blog! My name is Tina. I’ve always dreamed of having property where I could have a garden, an orchard, and animals. Now I still work full-time so I’ll ease into it – or I tell myself that now. Once I get my mind set on something, I’m full steam ahead. I always make time for whatever is needing my attention.
My husband and I bought a log-sided home on just shy of 3 acres in Northern Colorado in December 2016. Property around here is at a premium so we are very fortunate to now own a small piece of it. My husband will build his dream shop and I will live my country-girl lifestyle with a garden, orchard, miniature horses, and chickens – to start with.
The small barn needs work before I get the horses and the ground is frozen with nights where it’s reached 29 below! But I’m still out there cleaning up what the previous owners left behind. And I bought a new tractor! It’s not a big one, but I sure love driving my shiny red Massey Ferguson. It’s got a front loader on it so it makes for easier work loading up the old straw and mess. My animals will have a clean home to come to!
Walk with me as I update you on my trials and tribulations of living in the country as a woman of almost 54 years old. As spring gets closer, it’s going to get a whole lot busier around here!
