Myself (Karen) and my better half, Chris, are the proud owners of a beautiful dog from Tish's Blacksheep Homestead. Mindy is my profile pic, and has been a member of the family for 2 and a half years now.
I work as a paramedic, Chris works on the railroad, and when not at work we are either fishing/camping or doing construction in the summer or gathering our winter firewood.
I do a lot of baking/cooking also, am am getting more and more into 'getting back to basics' with more old fashioned recipes and learning how to do more for ourselves and get away from depending solely on the grocery store. There is something very satisfying about baking a good loaf of bread or making a pot of real soup that isn't full of salt and preservatives! We are planning to get chickens in the spring finally with a mix of birds for meat and eggs and am looking forward to having Mindy help keep an eye on them.
I'm sure you'll here more from me later... take care for now!
