Hi, I’m Becky.

Welcome to my little piece of the South!

I live on a farm in the southeast with my husband,

The Captain

He’s my hero. Named The Captain, because he is the captain of our team.

And my son, Boo.

He keeps me on my toes and busier than a cat in a sandbox.

We share our home with dogs, horses, a bird and other, not so domesticated, wild animals that frequently visit.

We have two grown children, one who lives nearby and the other has returned to our home state of West Virginia. We talk almost daily on the phone or via phone texts and see them as often as our busy schedules will allow. They have started their own families, which are growing rapidly. You will hear about them from time to time on this blog as I love my children, their life partners and our grandchildren.

I grew up in the foothills of West Virginia, along the Kanawha River. My family and I moved to the South in the 90’s. And accepting the changes and differences of lifestyles has been a fun and interesting adventure.

I am a country girl who loves the simple life. I enjoy gardening, canning, photography, God’s creatures great and small and crafts of all sorts.

I am currently attending a local college and giving it my best shot at learning Web Programming. Finding the time to juggle school, a farm and family life has been hectic, stressful and interesting, to say the least.

Since moving to the South, I have experienced all kinds of new adventures. From boating on the lake to riding in a hot air balloon.

Here, you will read about Redneck’s chasing copperheads, hot air ballooning, farm life, local events and a host of scatter brained episodes.

So join me in my ordinary and sometimes comical adventures along this journey. The more the merrier!

And thanks for stopping in!

  1. Hey, Becky! Just had to say hi! I’m also a West Virginian. I live not far from the Kanawha River, just a little north of Charleston in the country. I really like your blog. I’m just beginning my blog and have lots to learn. I really love reading blogs like yours. You are doing a great job. I only hope I can someday get that good at it. I will certainly be a regular visitor of yours.

  2. Hi, I’m here from Carletta’s blog. Wonderful family you have there and warm bio page. I’m in the neighboring state of VA, love crafts (am an artist) and photography. I’m looking forward to discovering more of you in your blog. 🙂

  3. Great job Becky. I’ve enjoyed reading this. I too was raised up along the Kanawaha River (Charleston), Attended Stonewall Jackson 1962. I have been residing in Melbourne Fl for the last 40 years. I recently purchased 2 1/2 acres in Kenna and will be spending my sommers up there.
    Thanks for the recipe on how to make Drop Bisquits.

  4. Fun meeting you Becky. I’m living in country Queensland in Australia, my house is on a large one acre small- town section not far from the river and my wild vistors include the occasional kangaroo. I’ve always been interested in wild food and the herbs and dig wild salsify, use milk thistles in salads and very pleased to find these ground cherries.
