Farmgirl has left the farm

And we're off! Our adventure has begun. Aidan and I are on our way to Port Arthur, Texas today to spend the next week and a half working with Habitat for Humanity.

Aside from eleven days of communal living, locker room style showers and lots of Wonder Bread sandwiches, I will be leaving all electronics behind. Except for my trusty camera, of course. That, as you know, is attached to me. Always.

Those of you who know me will appreciate this next photo. Even if you don't know me, you still might. This is a picture of the accommodations where we will be sleeping. Aidan took it with his cell phone when he was there last spring break:


Until March 31st then...

Hat photo dedicated to my blog friend, Mim. :-)


  1. From what I've heard of these Habitat build-ins, you'll probably be so tired you won't hear all those people snoring. Have a wonderful experience and keep your thumbs out of striking distance.

  2. Bless your hearts for going! I have several good friends who live in Port Arthur - they've been through devastation galore - more than once!

    Keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers, Danni!

  3. Good luck guys and work hard!!!

  4. Good luck and have fun! Take lots of photos. I love that last shot of your hat and chicken coop. word verification is "dingel"

  5. What a great experience. You're an awesome, Woman. Work hard and have fun! Looking forward to your return and all the stories you'll have to share.

  6. Well goodness, I missed commenting on all the fun.
    We've been on spring break and the computer hasn't much been on my radar.
    You'll see this when you get back, but I hope you have a good trip despite the communal everything.
    I'm wishing fine weather, no snorers and no tetanus on all of you.

  7. Thank you, Danni! Wow, that sounds like a lot of fun and work. Just wonderin, how are you getting there? Someone mentioned to me that you perhaps don't really care for flying?

  8. Let me be the first to say that Critter Farm is just not the same. Farm girl is missing. Not reading farm girl's accounts will send me into deep withdrawal. So hurry back. You make life just a little bit sweeter with everything you share with us readers.

  9. You're so great for doing this. Have a great time--can't wait to hear all about your adventures!

  10. what a fabulous adventure to do with your son. I can't wait for all the stories and pictures. Have a great time . . . a memory-making time indeed!

  11. OH what a great adventure.. You will have a great time.. Can't wait for the pictures..

  12. What a great experience! You and your son should be commended, what a selfless thing to do. Looking forward to hearing about your experience.

  13. Hi. I miss your blog posts. I replied to your email about the Greek tomato seeds. I hope you got it. Thanks again Danni! I hope all is well with you.

    Where are you?
    Hope all is well!
