Thoughts from Carol

Good Friends

What are good friends?  Are they people you know very well or are they people who are in your life for a long time?  Can they join you on your journey for just a short time or to help you through one event in your life?  I have had many friends in my life that I would consider good friends.  There are some friends that I have not seen or spoken with in years, but the minute I see or speak with them it seems like only minutes or days have passed. I truly believe that people come in and out of your life for a reason.  I may or may not know what it is for a long time…maybe never.  I try to make everyone I come in contact with feel important.  As Oprah once said “Everyone has a story.”  I enjoy listening to everyone’s story.  It is hard to understand people if you do not know their story.

This weekend I was honored to participate in saying goodbye to Bob Fraleigh.  After his death, his wife became my best friend.  Sheila and her boys are not only friends of our family but part of our family.  A group of friends and family gathered together at Indian Beach, NC to honor and say our final goodbyes to Bob.  We were able to stay together thanks to another friend Nathan!  He was gracious enough to allow us to stay at his beach house for the weekend.

As the sun sets on this chapter of Sheila and boys lives,  may they know that we will always be here for them!  Bob rest in peace!

Saturday Morning!

I love Saturday mornings!  It is my time to relax.  I start with a cup of coffee or tea.  Check my emails, twitter accounts, catch up on what friends and family are up to on facebook and discuss the plans for the day with Jim.  We compile a list of goals for the weekend.  Discuss what we caught our interests this week.  Then we usually have some fresh eggs and start our day.  Today the weather will be cooler than it has been so we will hit the NC Farmers Market then work on the yard!  No wine tastings today (One of my favorite Saturday activities!!) because we are not having any sugar, grains or dairy for 31 days!!!  We will see how long that lasts… I will try to post either a recipes or pictures sometime this weekend.  Enjoy today and every day!!!

Carol’s Corner of the Farm

Welcome to my little corner of Fuster Cluck Farm.  I am Carol, mother of two, lover of life.  I enjoy my family and friends.  We love to get together and hang out.  My husband, Jim, and I bought this house about twenty-two years ago.  I have always enjoyed working in the yard and trying new things.  Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.  But I try to have fun doing it. Last year we decided to raise some chickens.  Now we have 15 of them!  More about them as well as our family and friends as time goes by.

This blog / website is a way for me to share my thoughts, ways of doing things and stories.  I am not an expert at anything but I feel I have some insight.  I would love to hear your comments and thoughts. Come along on this journey with me.  Feel free to share this with your friends and family.

My first blog entry is a quick and easy way to freeze green beans.  I am always trying to do things the quickest and least labor intensive way.  Give it a try.  Let me know how it goes.  I will have some more recipes, tips and stories soon.

Always remember; Life is an adventure ~ you decide if it is good or not ; )
