Hi, I'm Paula.... remember me?

After being in the dark ages for the last three weeks from a major computer catastrophe, I'm finally back online! Woo-hoo! Who knew a faulty hard drive could bring me so much despair... *sigh*

Anyway, I have so much to share over the next few days and weeks- like new things from the kitchen and from my sewing room, farm happenings, and also some future plans for a barn makeover. I hope you're as excited as me! For the next couple of days however, I'm going to spend my computer time catching up with all my bloggy friends. I know I've missed so much in the last couple of weeks and I can't wait to find out what's new with you!


Here is a picture I thought I'd share today.... poor little Belle- every girl is allowed to have a "bad hair day" now and then.....

  1. Belle looks like me first thing in the am except my hair is white/blonde. Been missing you greatly and very glad you are back amongst the blogging. Time for seed catalog dreaming and summer garden planning!

  5. Paula! You're back!!! I wondered what had become of you. I suspected you'd been kidnapped by your sheep and chickens and your husband was having a hard time scraping together enough feed for ransome.... I'm glad it was just computer issues! ;)

    Well, I know how frustrating and heart-breaking those can be, so I hope you didn't lose anything valuable.

    And welcome back!

  7. My goodness--the end of a long dry spell. I have missed you sooooo much. It has been a long, cold week. Really looking forward to your up-dates. Your # did NOT come up on my call ID. Could you slip that to me in an email? Just in case.......
    Belle is a beauty, no doubt. We must share a stylist.....

  12. Hey Paula,
    Good to see you back. I am sorry about your computer problems but I bet you got a lot done.
    I think about 6 weeks off of mine and my house/barn/yard/raised beds would look a whole lot cleaner. lol..
    Belle looks just fine. She looks like me when folks show up unexpected and I didn't realize I looked like that until they left.
    Windblown hair is what some gals(and guys) pay big money for at the hair salon.
    Have a great day.
    Can't wait to see your new things.

  19. glad you're back on. Belle, reminds me that tomorrow I continue my search for Show Girl Chickens. Have you seen them? Maybe Belle would like to be the mother of some. Just thinking...

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm so excited your back! Thought maybe those chickens and sheep had you cornered and wouldn't let you get out of fear of having to share you with the blogging world.

    I think Belle's hair looks beautiful I mean did you see Drew Barrymore's hair at the Globe and she had to pay for that.

    Take Care :)

  26. I've kinda been away too...just cause life gets so busy during Christmas with travel to the south and all. Now I have to try and get back into the swing of things. For some reason I am having a hard time this yr.

    I love all the photos from your recent post and 2008. The dog and deer is cool and love the back door guest. My Dad actually had a tractor kinda like that!

  30. Aww, there are days my hair looks worse than that! I'm looking forward to all the 'catching up' you're going to do~especially the new things from your kitchen--my favorite room in the house!

  33. Oh joy! I can't wait to hear about all YOUR farm activities! I have some white silkie hens outside with the same hair-do. You know, their top fluff usually looks a bit bedraggled in this cold damp weather, but they're still ready to brood anything resembling an egg!

    BTW, I have to keep close watch on the 'Belles' of my flock because they steal eggs from the other hens and want to brood, but I don't want any more chicks to tend right now!

  34. Welcome back!! I have had computer issues also....it's devestating!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. So glad to see you back, Paula!!!! Nothing worse than no computer!!!!

    As for Belle's hair???? Just wish I had some right now -- bad hair day or not! Won't be long, though, and it will be growing back in!

    Looking forward to all your new posts again!
