Pixilated is…

66 as of this update. (12/13/2019)  Where did the time go?

Still unabashedly devoted and in love with her husband.

A retired school teacher.

A latent farm girl who has much to learn.

Transplanted from California to Alabama, but has lived in the south before.

An ex-Military girl who was stationed in NAS Pensacola.

A proud owner of her dogs Walker and Noodle.

Having a blast raising her chickens, and geese.

Got two new cats to kill the mice who came to live in the shed because of the chicken’s feed.  Our neighborhood seems to be a little low on cats these days.  Something in the woods is taking them out… so now ours are sleeping in – like it or not!

A gardening enthusiast,  who has suddenly found gardening to be hard!  (Much to do and lots to learn)  I think I’m getting the hang of it!  🙂

An avid book collector and reader of same.

Likes to hike, bike, and explore new places.

Finding her way back to the Godly life and learning to trust Him for all her needs.

Feeling blessed that He has provided me with all of the above.

    not to spy on you but would you tell me where in North Alabama you are? I am from Alabama and now live in Georgia. I have relatives all over Alabama though. nearest town would be okay if you’d rather not say.

      Thank you! Been so busy getting my quilting room built that I didn’t have time to give you a proper visit, but I intend to! ~ Lynda

    So glad you stopped by my blog, which allowed me to find yours! I have recently moved from the “city” to the farm environment on the Eastern Shore of Virginia so I am definitely looking forward to reading!

      Hello DJ, I found you because WordPress linked us as having something in common… I thought when I got to your site is was because of our interest in writing. Thank you for visiting me today. ~ L

    So nice to know you are here, Lynda. I am from North Alabama originally, so it makes you and your farmlet even more interesting to me! Thanks for stopping by my blog and allowing me to “find”! I look forward to future posts. Cheers! ~Betsy

      Betsy, I love North Alabama. My husband and I feel most fortunate to have found this little enclave in farm country. We don’t have a lot, but we have what we need and feel blessed for it! ~ L

    Looks like you’ve gathered a merry band of folks here with your kind visits to our blogs! I’m sorry it took me so long to come visit …… But thanks for leading the way here!

    Hello Lynda! I just wanted to stop by and present you with this most deserving blog award, The Very Inspiring Blog award! You are very much deserving of it and I just wanted you to know how much I enjoy visiting your blog. I think that your moving from California to a farm in Alabama is very inspiring, love it! Feel free to accept this award or just relish in the fact that I think your blog is great and you, very inspiring 🙂 I have just published a post about it on my blog where you can find out more about it.

    Lynda, first of all … thanks again for letting me know that my gravatar needed a link to the blog! Done!
    I was going to say that I am now following your blog (and actually found it because of similar interests) and in reading the comments above, see that there are other women who told you the same thing.
    Reading, exploring, ex-military … the farming and gardening are mere dreams for me, so I’m excited to be learning more about your experiences!!

    • Lynda says:

      Thank you, LB! I have to say that your bravery in riding a motorcycle everywhere is amazing to me. You go so many places and see so many beautiful things! Living here on the Farmlet with the garden to tend and animals who rely on me, keeps me from traveling these days. It is a trade off, but an equitable one. In the meantime we can share and trade experiences and that will be a blast!

    Hi, after you dropped by Chiconia, I took a look at the Farmlet. You’re right, we do have a lot in common! Quilting, Gardening, and yes, Gluten Free cooking. And you’re very funny, and you love chickens, and, and…. So I’ve started following you too. One question: where are all your quilting photos? Looking forward to the next instalment.

    • Lynda says:

      Hello, Kate! Yes, I had forgotten to mention that we had the GF cooking in common.

      I am new to quilting (only one year) and, ashamedly, I have given much of what I have done away, and without ever getting pictures! Is that insane? I think so. I am putting together a post for my latest creation. It will post tomorrow for the Black Tie Boogie blog-hop. It is only a small machine pieced hand quilted item, but I tried my best to make it as perfect as I could. Maybe I need to make a page to post my pictures of my quilts, and perhaps if I have a place to store them, then I’ll get better about taking the pictures… Yes? 😉

      • katechiconi says:

        Hi Lynda, I think it would help to take photos. Over time, your quilts become your children, and you find you want to keep a record of what you’ve created. I haven’t posted pictures of every quilt I’ve made, I have those on my computer, but I did put up the ones I love best, that have most meaning. Maybe it’s time for a few more? Kate

        • Lynda says:

          Even so! Like I said, it has only been a year, but I can remember every detail of all that I have made. I think my very first quilt is on my FB page, I will have to root around for it so I can include it too.

    Turned 58 myself on 5-31-14. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving comments. We have a lot in common, only my mice in the henhouse are rats! Just bought a Hav-a Heart trap. but not sure what to do with them when I catch them!

    • Lynda says:

      I will rehome a mouse, but rats? They creep me out too much.
      Kathleen, I love visiting your blog! You always have something interesting going on. I’m sorry, I really should leave comments more often.

  9. lestersflat says:

    I am terrible about leaving comments myself! Please, not to worry, I am happy to know that you enjoy my blog and that is comment enough. We do have a lot in common, and it is fun to read about your trials and tribulations on the “farmlet”. Stay strong fellow farmletter!
