Live Life With Gusto!

Our motto here at Indigo Acres is…

“Do What you Love, Love What You Do!”

We live by these words each and every day.

As you can see, these words are even printed on our farm tees!

Are there some days that are more challenging, to live by these words, than others?  Yes, definitely!  But, living by these words is my constant goal.  I might not be Van Gogh, but I enjoy painting, so I paint.  I might not be an Iron Chef, but I love cooking, so I cook.  I might not be a Broadway star, but I love music, so I sing and play instruments.  With that being said, I encourage everyone to Live Life With Gusto! What a perfect word to kick off Monday morning! GUSTO!

I always enjoy singing show tunes while I am on the tractor. I have loved musicals ever since I was a little girl.  The first musical movie I ever watched was OKLAHOMA.  I watched it over and over again. My Dad even purchased the 8-track for me! (Now that is love!) With that being said, here is a little GUSTO (Roda Style) to kickoff Monday morning!    This week, Do What You Love…Love What You Do!



I wish you all a beautiful day!

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…

  1. Oh my God you’re sooooooo cute!! Got a huge smile on my dial now … what a beautiful day indeed! Can’t say I’d be brave enough to sing (on a tractor or not) but I’m sure glad to know someone who throws caution to the wind. Bless you sweetie!

      1. Oh I have the photos! I was Elphaba for Halloween last year. I am usually a witch of some form each year! Halloween is a big deal here. We haunt the farm and usually end up with about 40 to 50 teenagers over for a fun scavenger hunt. The older they get the more complex it becomes!

      2. But I can’t wait. I wasn’t built for waiting. I was built for pouting when I have to wait. Guess what I’m doing right this very minute. 😾 that was the emoji that came up when I searched for “pout.” It looks more like a mean cat. Oh well, I can live with that! 😉

      1. “Maria…I just met a girl named Maria. And suddenly that name will never be the same to me…” West side story will now be in my head all day, thanks to you!💚🎶


  3. You were on another blog (can’t remember which one) I was reading, so you were an easy find. Since I love music I naturally gravitated to your singing and was delighted. Your joy and happiness came through beautifully. That might be one of the reasons I fell in love with my husband – he was a great singer. He loved to sing and it and it came through in his voice. At our age both our singing voices are not as good as they used to be.
