Bacon and Eggs ..................I said to myself back in the year 2012, what an interesting name to call a blog.
Of course the name intrigued me……..and it wasn’t because it was food name…..it was because the blog was created by a lovely woman with a big heart who knew “Life was a Precious Gift”……….her name, SCIFICHICK.
SCI’s gift was helping others learn to stand on their feet, and become self reliant. Her blog posts always encompassed informative information and she was never afraid to express her opinion. If you had a question about gardens, seeds, rabbits, chickens, canning, self reliance, ways of being frugal, or politics; SCI, without hesitation, would drop what she was doing to answer your question. I consider SCI the Matriarch of the Blogger world.
I had the pleasure of personally getting to know SCI and her husband, Mars. We would talk through Blogger, G-mail, and the telephone. Little did I know that one day, I would be able to meet a true Blogger friend in person. SCI invited me and my husband to her place for a BBQ. Not only was I going to meet SCI and Mars in person, I was going to meet Phelan and her husband from A Homesteading-Neophyte blog. We all were getting together before Phelan and her family relocated to Kentucky. This visit was amazing……….Bulldog Man (my husband) and I were blown away by friends who we only had talked to by computer/phone in the past, and had never met in person until the day of the BBQ.
The day of the BBQ, SCI gave us a tour of her property. The garden she talks about on her blog was just jaw droppingly gorgeous in person. We couldn’t get over how much work both SCI and Mars put into the garden and their property.
The day we all spent together was incredible. Our friendship in itself was a precious gift, a bond unbroken.
As Bloggers, and friends, we are “IN THE WEEDS” right there with SCI. To understand why we’re “In the Weeds” with SCI, go to her blog and read her last post.
My Friend, Goodbyes are not forever or the end, it simply means we all will miss you SCIFICHICK, until we meet again!
