Wild Wonderful West Virginia

The Powers family, Cody, Jolynn, tom and Christopher

It is from my last Blog site that I start fresh again. This is a good move and I hope to keep sharing what it is I love about my little home in a forgotten state. If you are new here “Welcome” and if you are already a follower then, ” Thank You” for your continued support and interest in “Mountain Mama”.

I hope to share with all of you more about the family and our rural life. How we raise a garden and our kids together knowing that both are better off together. The superstitions and traditions of these mountain people like, planting by the signs,how to stop bleeding with just words and Water Witching.I am sure to throw in a few recipes and some stories about funny Hill Billy foods… “pickled eggs” anyone? I will show off my favorite photos of old building and my love of two-line roads… of course you must hear the song ” Take me home country roads” at this point just for the full effect.
We will hunt, fish and forage our way through these mountains.. so if you are a little squeamish about guns, eating deer or dead fish, you need to be advised, that this is our way of life and it is natural and honest.It may not make a bit of sence to you and may not seem pleasant but I will write about it and take photos of it. I will try to give every reader fair warning of my topic but I will at times forget that not everyone likes to see what the men folk killed for dinner.. so forgive me now.
Well that about coves it, other than meeting the members of the family whom I will be writing about. Me of course, Jolynn ( aka “MaMa”) Tom my husband ( blacksmith and DOT employee) my Oldest son Cody(Gas company tech) and the little son Christopher who is now 4 and 17 years younger than his brother. Cody’s wife Jamie( stay at home mom) and my 2-year-old grand-daughter Paige.Did you get that my son is 4 and my grand-daughter is 2… funny stuff already right?.. but we will get to that story later. Just sit back and enjoy the ride. It is an old dusty road full of bumps and mudholes so let’s get started into the hills of West Virgina.

For anyone who has ever thought of attempting the #vanlife, A Life of VANity is an unfiltered, realistic look at the unglamorous day-to-day happenings of life in a Chevy G20 Conversion van. Unlike other #vanlife blogs, A Life of VANity is here to show you that it isn’t all roadtrips and ocean-side views, and that there’s nothing wrong with living in a backyard or two.
