Welcome to my World!
I am Shannon. My interests include crafting of all sorts, backyard chickens, gardening, preserving my harvest by canning and freezing. I am a bit of a craft beer snob and a self proclaimed foodie. Fresh, local ingredients are what I strive to cook with/for my family. Photography is a growing passion of mine.
I am a busy sports mom. You know, the one who wears the team colors and shouts “Go Team!!” at every opportunity…Yup that’s me. I try to never miss a thing. I sit in the rain, snow and extreme heat. I carry “trunk blankets” in the trunk of my car. You never know when you may need one, either at baseball or football season. Those fold up chairs in a bag? I am a connoisseur of the camping/sport chair.
I am a sucker for animals. Really, I love them all. It probably comes down to the fact that I believe they all need me. They do, don’t they? I should really face the fact that I like to be needed. We currently have 3 dogs, 2 cats and a gaggle of laying hens.
What else screams Shannon? Reading! Reading and writing but I love reading. I put away at least 3 to 4 books a week. I do not watch much tv or any movies really for that matter. I’m a book girl. I like them all.
I am a self-proclaimed country girl and nerd all at the same time, this is who I am. I preserve food and talk to my chickens. I wear a lot of jeans and hoodie combinations. I read… a lot, and I am not hip to the game when it comes to tv shows and movies but I am hip to heirloom veggies, backyard chickens, raising boys and loving life.
Well this is me in a nut shell. I hope you stick around and check out life in my little village. There will be food, photos, crazy chicken stories, motherhood tales and more.
