Hiraeth no longer!

Posted on April 20, 2014 at 11:32am 0 Comments

Since my last blog post in December, many changes have occurred in my life.  The most unforeseen being that I am now back 'home' in my beloved Vermont!  A new town, from my living here three years ago, but still within "The Green Mountains" which is where I resided before.  And HERE is where my heart lies - in the most blissful of states.  Hiraeth no more!  This is what I had longed for during those dark, long, winter days of my last…

Hullo Cindy,

My given name is Catherine... Once upon a time a 4-year-old girl was working the gate for her grandfather and his crew as they culled cattle for shipping... One of the cowboys asked Grandpa why I was there and "being a nuisance"... Grandpa said ..."She's earning her keep just the same as you. She might be a little bit but she's got a lot of try"... from then until I had my first son, I was called "Lilbit"... after having my son, the "Lil" was dropped...and now it's just "Bit"
