Hello everyone. How are you? I am doing pretty good this morning, but a little anxious for tonight because we leave at four in the morning to head to our property and to sign the contracts. Once the contracts are signed, we head for our property to begin clearing it for our house. I am so excited that we are going to own something that no one can take away from us. I will be posting pictures when we return Saturday evening.

We are going to work until we can't see anymore, then sleep in the car, then get up and begin working again and stop about sunset and head for home. So, I won't post pictures until Sunday morning. I will try to post pictures along our journey of building our house and farm. The plan is to become self-sufficient which we will be by the end of the year as far as food goes, but it will take a minute for us to save up the money for solar power which will take up completely off the grid except for the internet.

I went and bought a new weedeater with a steel brush cutting blade and some rakes and a shovel to help in our process of clearing the property. I sat down last night and drew up the dimensions of the house and each room to see which way we were going to have the house facing. It is all a work in progress. Well, I have to get some things done so I will let everyone go for now.

I wish everyone an awesome day and a blessed one. For those of you who were born on this day, a very "Happy Birthday" to you and may you have many more. Anyone care to help a nonprofit out to end homelessness and hunger please click the links below.

Good morning to all. It is five twenty-nine in the morning here in Dalton, Georgia and in the forties outside. My husband and I have been up for about thirty minutes now and he has brought me some coffee. Usually, I don't stay up long this early in the morning, but I have a doctor's appointment today and I want to get a jumpstart on my to-do list and get some writing done.

I just took my injections and my blood sugar wasn't that bad this morning and I drank a nutritional drink for breakfast. I feel pretty good this morning and I have a positive attitude so far. I am just feeling a bit anxious for Friday to get here because we are going up to get started on our property.

We have to clear the brush from the property and clean it up to make it ready for our house to be built. I still have to get the dimensions down for the house so that it can be framed out and planned where everything is going to go. I can't wait to see our whole house built and then we will begin building our farm with a chicken coop and pig pen to start off with. Cows will come later.

The goal is to have a farm that is income producing along with an office for me to write. The location is beautiful and in the mountains. There are only eight hundred people in this little town and the property is beautiful. When we go up this Friday, I will take pictures of what the property looks like at the beginning and I will post pictures of our progress as we clear the brush. I want to share it with all of you.

I will be doing some writing today and working more on finishing the book I am writing now. It is a crime thriller and I am enjoying writing it. It is about a serial killer who is a cannibal. I am sure having fun writing it because it is funny where my mind will go and how creative it can be.

Well, it is going on six o'clock and I want to get everything going so I will leave you here for now. I want to let you know that I care about every one of you and that I appreciate you reading my posts and following my website.

I want to wish everyone an awesome "Hump Day" and a blessed one. To all of you who were born on this day, "Happy Birthday" and may you have many more.

Good morning everyone! It is such a lovely day here today and I just got back from the endocrinologist which is going to be taking over my diabetes care. I will also have diet management too. I just got the dogs fed and they are happy now, and I just got off the phone calling about our cabin that will be placed on our property in Tennessee at the end of May. I just gave them the specifics of what size and they build to suit. So, things are moving nicely there.

I have been busy helping around the house with everyone cleaning and getting ready to set up the pool too. I have my list of stuff that needs to get done by tomorrow, but that is fine because I can do it. I am going to be looking into getting a paid ad out for my books which hopefully will boost sales. There are so many things to do so I won't hold everyone up this morning with a really long post, but I do want to update everyone on my progress.

I am here taking care of things while my husband went to his sister's house for a visit. I would have gone too but I need to get things done here for myself since it has been all about the house the last couple of days. I need to get back into my writing.

I had to change my writing schedule again to make sure everything hits my schedule on time. I hate being thrown off schedule and having to change things again. I am back to working on one book with two in the editing phase and one more waiting to be finished after this current one I am working on.

I am still pushing my nonprofit stuff as well. I need to get some things done for it. We are hoping to have the funding for the new project by the end of the year so that we can break ground on building the new community for the homeless and help them begin their journey to self-sufficiency. It will be a momentous occasion for us.

Well, let me get off here and get things going so that I can have some free time for my husband when he gets home. I hope everyone has an awesome day and "Happy Birthday" to everyone born on this date. May you have many more to come.

Good morning everyone. How are you this morning? "Happy Friday" to all. the weekend is here and it is time to celebrate good times, come on. It is nice and sunny here with the temperatures in the sixties. The dogs were just put out in the back yard and I just took all my medications and insulins. Once I get done writing this post, it will be time to get on the treadmill for my first walk today.

I woke up feeling pretty bad this morning where I stayed in bed until about eleven when I could actually get up. I had been up and down all night and felt like crap. I have things to get done and I can not afford to let things get in the way like being sick.

Today will be a good positive day if it kills me. I will be getting a lot of writing done today and tomorrow to have more books ready for editing. I am excited about getting the second book in my "How I Survived" series done and it will be full of great information for everyone. It is on addictions.

I hope everyone will have an awesome day and be blessed with whatever your hands touch. I need to get going and I wish for everyone to have a great day and be safe. "Happy Birthday" to those who were born on this date and may you have many more.

I know that this post is a little shorter than normal, but after posting last night, I need to get other things done today. Please show your support by clicking a link below and making a donation to help end homelessness and hunger. Take care.

Good evening everyone. It is nine twenty-nine in the evening here in Dalton, Georgia and the day started out pretty nice with a lot of wind, but this evening it turned into rain. Yesterday, we took a road trip and purchased 2.88 acres of land to build our house on and make it our little farm. It was a surreal moment for me to know that we are going to own land and can build our dream house.

It has electric at the road, but it is old logging land which left stumps and tall grass and brush. It will take a few trips of going up and clearing the land to make it ready for our home, but it is exciting and with my anxiety, it shouldn't take too long to have it ready for the first building which we will live in while building the rest of it.

Once the house has been completed, the room that we will be living in will turn out to be our living room. There are open lots next to our property that if we need to expand, we can purchase more acreage. I am so wanting to drive up there now to get started, but I have to be patient.

So, the plan is to go up around the second of April and stay overnight up there to get two full days of work in which we should be able to get plenty of it done. We need to purchase a new weedeater and the brush blade to go with it to take care of a lot of the brush and some other tools to manage the rest.

My husband sounds like he wants to go up tomorrow to get started, but I want to wait until we get the contracts notarized. We live five hours away from the property so financially we can't afford to drive up there every other day, so they are going to be calling me Monday and mailing us the contracts to take and get notarized here and mail them back.

This will all take place on Monday and I will also get the address assigned to that property so that I can have checks ordered with that address on them to mail the payments to them until we move up there and we will still write checks out for the monthly note on the property because I want a paper trail.

I have not written anything in two days and that has been frustrating because I need to have these two books or at least one of them completed by Sunday to stay on a writing schedule, but taking care of our house is important too. I will manage somehow to get things done.

I have been working on our nonprofit stuff as well and so far no donations have come in and it seems like no one wants to help the homeless get off the streets, but I will leave that conversation alone because I will go on and on about how the homeless are being treated.

Well, I need to get some writing done for the evening and some other things too, so I will say good evening to everyone and please remember those who are sleeping outside and keep them in your thoughts and prayers. I hope everyone has a blessed evening and a very "Happy Birthday" to those born on this date.

Good morning everyone. How are you? I am still trying to wake up and no one saved me any coffee so I am waiting for another pot to brew. I spent a few minutes over the toilet this morning throwing up phlegm that ended up in my stomach while I slept, so it has not been a happy morning.

We have an appointment with the lawyer today to collect my husband's settlement check from the car fender bender he was in over six months ago. it isn't going to be much but it is enough for him to buy his truck and then the rest will be sat on for the expenses of buying our property in a couple of months.

I have been at a standstill in writing on my books but that will change today. I have to have both of them completed by Sunday morning and that shouldn't be hard to do since one is fiction and the other is a crime thriller which I get drawn into the story as I write it. I am positive that I will have both of them done or almost there by Sunday.

My husband is happy about his truck now since it will help us move our stuff to the property. I will be happy to have a yard big enough for the babies to run and play in. I am very excited and can't wait. I still have to draw out the plans for the rest of the house so I know how big to make the fencing around the yard. It is bad when you have two dogs that can jump a five-foot fence so the fencing will be six-feet and concreted in the ground so there is no chance of escaping. We have six small dogs that are mischevious and will try to find a way out.

Well, I need to get things going. I still have to take a shower now that everyone else is done. I have some homework to do for my therapy session that needs to take some time to do, so I want to wish everyone a blessed day and a "Happy Birthday" to those born on this date. Keep the homeless in your thoughts and prayers that they remain safe and healthy. Take care

Good afternoon everyone. It finally became a beautiful day outside and I pushed the dogs out of the house to go play because they were stuck in the house during the rain. I feel pretty good today and feeling positive. My GoFundMe account is up and live now we can start pulling in money for the new project to assist the homeless.

The goal with Pathway to Self-Sufficiency is to take the homeless and put them inside a dorm room/tiny house where they can be safe and help them get back on their feet to working and graduating the program when they are able to move into their own apartment. We would like to be able to break ground on building the little community for them before the end of the year.

There are many homeless individuals that we have speaking with that are anxious and excited about this new program and want to be the first ones to graduate the program. We have gotten quite a good response from the homeless community and hopefully a good response from the working and tax-paying communities.

My husband is hurting so he is laying down with a pain patch on while I sit here and get some writing done. We went out earlier to pick up some totes for storing some of our homeless hygiene products so they don't get damaged. We need to schedule another day to go down to Florida to pass some out and I need to set up appointments for donation tables at mass merchants like Walmart.

We have been focusing on setting things up for the building project and my charity state walk, but most of that is taken care of except a few simple things, but now is the time to get money coming in to keep buying food to feed the homeless. At the bottom of my posts, you will see two links for donations. One is the GoFundMe link to make a donation towards the building project of Pathway to Self-Sufficiency and the PayPal link is where you can make a donation to help with food and supplies. We hope that you choose either one to show your support in assisting us in ending hunger and poverty.

Well, time to get writing so I will end this post here with a wish that everyone enjoys their Sunday with loved ones and a very "Happy Birthday" to those born on this date. Take care.
