About Me

My photo
Fayette Co, KY, United States
I am a country girl stuck in the city, for the time-being. I enjoy the country way of life, and practice that in my home as best I can by canning and preserving foods, cooking and baking from scratch, crocheting, living vicariously thru the many blogs I follow about country life. I enjoy learning about raising livestock, and glean from my past employment and personal experiences of working with animals to fuel some of my postings. I have 5 cats, who keep my life interesting. And I am also an amateur poet. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this Farmer-gal who is caught in town, for now.

A quick note without photos

The photo of the cabin from far off just makes it look big. The main floor is just 16 x 20 sq ft, and the loft is 16 x 10 sq ft. I'll take a photo from the back so you can get a better perspective. Yes, there is an outhouse, and yes I do have a chamber-pot of sorts so I don't have to go out to the "house" after dark, I just dump it in the morning. Three of the 5 cats will go out regularly when I am there, I don't let them outside when I'm not there yet. The other 2 are a little skittish, but it's just been one week.

I'm working today at my friend's farm, but will take more pics later on today to post tomorrow or so, to give a better view of the outside of the cabin. The front that I showed is the basement entrance, the main floor's porch, and then the loft's porch.

Thanks so much for your well-wishes. It is so good to hear from everyone. I miss getting online to visit with you all, although I do like the solitude of the cabin. I'll try and take some photos of the road I drive down into the valley to the home.

Better get to work. My friend is waiting. Beautiful weather here this week, and good to be working outside in the gardens. Take care All, and have a blessed Wednesday. Finally, from Casey Co KY.

Solitude...how welcome and what a blessed gift to be given and then to enjoy. So many don't know the beauty of solitude; cherish it, Kathy, embrace it and make it your beloved companion.
I told Mother if I ever have to live in a nursing home, I hope I lose my hearing. The noise would drive me crazy.

Had to smile at the memory. My grandmother's house had a WC attached, but through the back door. My Aunty Margaret had a WC down the garden path, so I was very used to the chamber pot.

How many names these useful items had. Pot, potty, po (pronounced pow), jerry and guzunder were the most common. We always had porcelain pos.

Ornamental pos have been popular as plant containers - not for me!

You're like the cats...it's new. Before you know it, you'll be going outside at night and staring at the stars on your way to the privy. I love my nocturnal jaunts to the outhouse. :)
