Besides writing books and playing music, my favorite things are my animals. First, Pippa. She’s the best dog in the whole world.
This livestock guardian dog, Jackson. He’s still a pup and driving me bananas. His daddy was 140 pounds, so he’s gonna be a biggun’!
These chickens… Cupcake, Ebony, Freckles, Queenie, Cindy, Goldie, Wynona, Blue, Lacy, and a couple of babies Lacy decided to “hatch” that have yet to be named. Note: We have no Roo, so the babies were courtesy of the local co-op that had a couple bantams left. Don’t tell Lacy. She thinks it’s a barnyard miracle!
and these bunnies… Pepper, Sugar, and Cinnamon.
and don’t forget the ducks… Gabby, Gracie, Greta, and Ginger
…and the Sebastopol Geese… Twinkle, Trixie Bell, and Tallulah (8 weeks old in this photo).
There are also a couple barn cats around here, Templeton and Tigger, but if you can get a photo of them, you are better than I.
Native Mississippi belle, blonde, blue, 5’4″, Scorpio, residing with my trophy husband on our farm in Tennessee.
I’m a dueling piano player in Nashville by night, an indie author in my spare time, and the servant to a menagerie of animals on a farm in middle Tennessee called Trace Creek Acres. Stop by our website or check us out on Instagram. I’m also the founder of Trace Creek Herbals on Etsy. Southdown Babydoll sheep are coming Spring 2023, so we’ll also be breeding and selling lambs shortly. Stop laughing! Yes, there are 32 hours in a day. No, I don’t sleep; but thanks for asking. And no, I don’t watch TV!
I’m a die-hard genealogy buff, and you’ll find a majority of my blog is about history and family with the occasional snippet from one of my books. Click on the “select category” button on the page to find something/someone specific.
My blogging schedule changes yearly, but I’m pretty much taking a couple years off as I work on the farm and finish writing two books. I’ll have a lot to say when I get back to it. As always, I will continue to write “On This Day” blogs about various ancestors on the date of their birth, death, marriage, etc. There are over 10,000 people in my family tree. We’re gonna be here a while.
Ok, let’s get on with it, shall we? Don’t be shy. Say something. Let me know you stopped by.
