City kids in the country

Ok, so I've decided to join the modern world and start a blog. We'll see how long this lasts. But as a city kid (growing up in a college town of 50K, not much of a city but no rural area either) I have "bought the farm" and moved to 40 acres in the country. The problem is that my husband is a city kid (from that same "city") too. So I guess I feel the need at times to express the wonders of our world with others, and chronicle my life trying to be a country girl. 

My husband, Ryan, and I bought our farm on the day after Christmas in 2007. We moved out here in May of '08 and have been trying to get stuff running ever since. We raise primarily chickens and turkeys, and our website is In addition to that livestock, we have sheep, muscovy ducks, laying hens (and currently roosters too), a beagle named Maya and a cat named Fumbles. 

So I guess my goal here is to share things like the sheep getting out (they did this morning), finishing painting our sign (I did that this afternoon), and the ducks herding the farm cats around (they do that a lot). I hope I can update with some level of timeliness or as things happen and that this turns into something interesting and worth reading and writing.
