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..

Merry Christmas Charming Chick Style


What a fun afternoon.. Here are some of the members of our Mary Janes Farm Girls Chapter in Klamath Falls, Oregon  
With 14 (of the17 members) all laughing women in a house can you imagine the noise level?   A true hen house! We meet monthly and sometimes more often just to checkout the antique shops and thrift stores, yard sales or just for lunch. We share with each other our "special talents" of sewing,  cooking, crafting, fiber spining, knitting, crocheting, raising pets, including chickens, dogs, cats, goats, llamas, horses, rabbits and sheep. (there is a farm girl in all of us) Some live on big farms, some on small and some don't live on a farm at all.   
We are involved in our community making donations to the Salvation Army, The food bank, and anywhere we can lend a farm girl hand. Some of our members have no family close to share times of tears and joys so we lean on each other. We have formed a loving friendship  a sisterhood as many of our children are raised and families live in other states. Some of us are retired but we all work hard to do our best to reduce, recycle and reuse. Making efforts where we can to make our planet a better place, while filling our lives with laughter and fun. Being a Farm girl is a "condition of the heart." If you would like to join a chapter or perhaps like me start your own. Check out MaryJanes Farm at www.maryjanesfarm.org/farmgirl-connection. There are chapters world wide waiting for you.

Sounds like so much fun....do you have to live on a farm. Sometimes I feel like I do with the deer, 200 buzzards that live in our trees, squirels and an occasional skunk. Happy Holidays.

Oh, that sounds like so much fun! I have seen Mary Jane's magazine but I didn't know there were clubs. Looking into it.
Glad you found my red farmhouse. So nice to get to know you.
