Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Need something to read?

I have plenty of reading material to keep me busy when I have nothing else to do.. Yeah right.. I am sure with my other interests of sewing, crafting, cooking, decorating, these winter days will be full . I wonder what magazines the mail man will leave in the box today? I'm waiting anxiously for the next issues of "Mary Janes Farm" & "Living the Country Life" & "Country Living"
I just sorted and put away the other magazines, travel brochures ( we wont be need those for awhile) and cook books realizing I am actually waiting for two more books from Amazon and a few seed catalogs to add to the "library of things to read when I have nothing else to do.." I love magazines and get lots of decorating, recipe, and gardening ideas from them. I started to read a few pages nightly of a novel but have really fallen asleep after two pages, so I am behind on that too. I am making a personal goal to keep the books & magazines purchases under control as much as possible, but it is difficult when so many offers come in the mail with lower renewal rates. How can these publishers do that to me... It is a budgeting issue and I will not order another magazine ...until spring. By then I will have twice as many to read, I will get started thumbing through them again with the weather outside being snowy & cold....or maybe today it will be nice to curl up in my chair with a nice cup of tea and read...or maybe I will just put them aside for a rainy the Spring when I sort through them again .
