I have lived my whole life in the suburbs. Here it is cities really. But I have always loved growing things, imagining life in the country. It is still a dream I have but not sure it will happen. Life ties you to places doesn't it?
But on my small urban lot, I live how I like. I am different than many and I am fine with that. I play in the dirt daily, clean and care for the chickens and our other animals. It gives me a touch of the life I want.
I am sort of an old school mom and wife and wear my apron everyday at some point. But I am opinionated and a fierce defender of a woman's right to choose her path.
I gather eggs daily and check the garden for fresh produce. I am sure my neighbors wonder what the heck I am doing out bent over in the garden all the time. "What is that lady looking for?"
While others head to the gym or mall, I am strapping on the gardening gloves and that is if I can find them where I set them down the last time. I have tried being more of a girly girl but it is more torture than anything else so now I am old enough that I have given that up. I am happy doing what I want. Though I could probably stand some gym time and some new clothes.
Good food I managed to mostly grow is my jewelry. Dressing up plates of fresh veggies.
