Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.    My name is Karla and I am married to my high school sweetheart.  We have 2 grown children, 5 grandsugars, 2 dogs, 5 feral barn cats, rabbits and chickens.    We live in a rural Southeast Texas community about 30 miles from the nearest town.    

I just retired in January 2021.   I am rediscovering the passion I have for several hobbies I enjoy.  To name a few: family genealogy, stained glass, fused glass, microwave kiln, clay, resin, cricut projects, creating websites, and embroidery machine.   We have a small vegetable garden and I absolutely love to pressure can or water bath can what comes out of it.   We enjoy the homestead lifestyle.
