About Me

Hi! My name is Jill... I am a Wanna be World Traveler...baby-stepping across the globe!

When I am not traveling ...my husband and I live in a sweet 1938 Cape Cod in the heart of Louisville, Kentucky, that we have affectionately named, “Orpington Cottage”. It has a warm rustic European farm feel.

We grow our own herbs and vegetables, compost, try to reduce our footprint, reuse, recycle, and enjoy our own farm-fresh eggs with our backyard laying hens (we have 2 Buff Orpingtons and 3 Lavender Orpingtons!). Not only do they lay the best tasting eggs on earth...but they are also the sweetest lap hens you could ever wish for!


On Swapbot, in a group called “At Hope With The Georgettes”, I represent a Regency/Georgian Era Character named: Priscilla Anne Ackley and husband her, Elmer James Ackley, owners and proprietors of Ackley Dairy Farm supplying eggs and milk to the village and surrounding area. We keep a special journal for our swaps pertaining to this period. You can find more information about this group in the above Blog Link near the top of this page.

Some other fun facts about me:

  • I am a mom of one human child, Ashley 👶🏼 (female, 24) living in Dublin, Ireland - and just finished her Masters in Art History 🖼 - way to go, Ash!
  • I am a mom of two feline children, Charley😺 (male, 16) and Clementine 🐈 (female, 5)
  • I am a mom of five hen children, Leota Mae 🐓(Buff Orpington), Matilda Jane 🐓(Buff Orpington), Violet Grace 🐔🦖(half Lavender Orpington/half T-Rex), Petunia Sue 🐔🦖(half Lavender Orpington/half T-Rex), and Opal Marie 🐓🦖(half Lavender Orpington/half T-Rex)

Boxing Day is a holiday celebrated on December 26th, thus being the second day of Christmastide. It originated as a holiday to give gifts to the poor - so let’s be charitable and do the same! Don’t forget about your favorite charities this time of year! Also… you can find shelters and donate the things you received that are just not right for you!! Spread Kindness!

cmalaina on Dec 25, 2020:

Jill, I wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year my friend
