Busy Week at the Farm!

Cowboy and I had lots of chores this week, but we also made time for fun too. Our weather is crazy. We have had virtually no rain this fall so I actually had to drag out our stored hoses and fire up the water sprinklers. Everything is a tinderbox so I am making sure the house […]

In My Easter Bonnet…

When I was a child, Easter was quite different than the Easter season we celebrate now. It was one of the most exciting times of the year. First, in our small rural elementary school we prepared for the annual “Easter Day Parade”. We spent weeks before Easter constructing the most beautiful hats and bonnets to wear in […]

We Had SNOW!

We had a White Christmas! It is the first Christmas snow in over 80 years in our area. What wonderful fun for everyone. In the past we have had a trace of snow on Christmas, but never the 3 inches we received on Christmas Eve Day. Now, I know many of you are laughing at the three inch part of this […]
