Becky's Farm Life

The simple life, living off God's land, one day at a time.

Catching Up

It has been a long time since I have been here. I have just finished my Associate’s Degree in Accounting, and am now taking a short break before returning for my Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. I received the President’s List award a few time over the last two years. It has been a long haul, and a few times I know I fried my brain. I have left my comfort zone some many times in the last two years, that I no longer have a comfort zone. Which I guess in some ways is a good thing. But I have finished and I am moving on. So all of you younger people out there reading this, go back to college while you are still young, as it is and will be so much easier for you. I have learn so much over the last two years and not just accounting information (from classes). I have learned more about myself, about God, and about people in my life. I have gone to new places, seen new things, and loved every minute of it.



She is still doing wonderful in school, making all A’s and B’s and still loving school. She hated being out of school for Christmas Break, and now we have had a lot of snow over the three weeks. Which means school has been called off, and she hates it. TommieLynn has been a great help to me over the last two years while I was in college. She would push me to keep going when I wanted to just give up, and helped out so much around the house. I am so very proud of her, and thankful for all her help and love. She is growing up so fast. TommieLynn is a wonderful Aunt too. Gabby is trying to call her, “Aunt T ”, as we thought this might be a bit easier for her than Aunt TommieLynn. I had told TommieLynn, that when I became an CPA ( which will take about three more years), and was making a lot of money, I would buy her a big screen TV for her room. So I think that is why she has keep pushing me on in my education. LOL She is taller than me now, and so very much like her dad, which is mostly good.

 100_0365Gabby, not sure she can eat it all. 



Gabby is growing and learning more everyday. She is so full of smiles and love. She keeps us on our toes and laughing. I am beginning to remember what it is like to have a 18 month old in the house, that likes to get into everything. Tasha is doing good. But keeps asking how I did it with three and her having a hard time keeping up with only one. LOL Tasha is a good mom, and learning more everyday.

Not much news on this subject, as we no longer have any animals except two dogs. It got to be too much for TommieLynn and I with us both in school. And with just us two eating at the time, the farm was put aside. Will I ever doing farming again?? I am not sure, but if I need too, I will know how. 🙂 As of today, I do not want to farm any time soon, a few chickens could be in the cards but that’s it for now. Fresh chicken eggs is what I miss the most, store bought eggs are yucky.


I have looked over the blog here yesterday and today, I have come a long ways. And I want to thank all my readers for your prayers and comments as they have meant the world to me. TommieLynn told me yesterday, I should start writing here again, now that classes are over. Then I thought I no longer do what this blog was meant to show (information). Then I read my “About” section, and seen that this blog is about my new journey in this life. I had thought about deleting this blog and starting another, but it is still helping so many people. So I am back writing, praying I can still help someone along this life we all live. I was in awe in how many people still looked at my pages and posts here, even after not up dating the blog for over a year. I could not believe some of the sites that link to this blog. TommieLynn and I went looking at some of the sites that link to here, one was CNN. My most hits (looked at) post is on “Canning Potatoes”. If you’d like to see that post, type it in the search box on the right and it will take you to it.

I will try and ask all the back comments you all have left, but if I miss yours please repost your question. Please still keep us in your prayers, as to where the Lord wants us and what He wants us doing. Pray that I will find a job in accounting too, please, it has been over 15 years since I have worked outside the home. It is so very good to be back on here. Thank you all again.

Talk to you soon. 🙂

  2. I’ve missed you and your family. I was hoping it was school keeping you too busy to write. You must be so proud of yourself for all your achievements. Way to go.Good to see the family thriving.
    Even though you are not running a farm at this time you still have a wealth of knowledge to share from past experience.
    Go fro a couple of chickens. They are like a mental health break and I agree store eggs are yucky.

Please dont cancel this blog!! I look forward to reading here again!

  6. Oh honey, I’m so glad to see an update! I’ve checked regularly over the months. Please PLEASE do not delete this blog! It contains so much good information! Just last week I was thinking I wanted to can potatoes and I thought about your blog and I knew I could just use your tutorial for it. Your blog really helped me – you started it at a time that I really needed to see someone else who lived like I lived (and still do, lol.) We’ve gone even further than we were at the time and added more chickens, meat rabbits, more gardening.

    I’ve thought of you often. I still have the dishtowel and dishcloth you crocheted and I won in your giveaway. I actually use the dishcloth as a potholder – use it everyday and it’s often made me think about you and wonder how you’re doing. I’m glad things seem to be going good and you and yours are happy. Hugs ~ Denita~~
