good quote

"Saving the family farm will forever be a process, not a goal or a destination. Like any necessary chore, the work never ends. It only waits for us the following morning, or the following season. So I wake, and enter the day.
Somewhere, another farm awaits it's farmer."

the princesses

Well the little heifers, or the babies as I call them turned out to be a couple of princesses after all.
We got a good down pour and then steady rain for a while with some thunder storms the other afternoon. My husband and I went for a walk later in the evening after chores and supper. But before we left I threw some hay in to the babies. Their pasture is low on grass and are moving them in the morning. And off we went on our walk. I really enjoy walking with my husband. We chat about our days if we spent it apart, or we talk about things on our minds. Or sometimes we are just quiet and enjoy being together. Well once we got home we walked into the driveway and saw...

the babies decided to lay down IN their hay instead of the wet ground!! Little buggers! Guess they decided dry hay was better then wet ground. Smart I'd say.

Have a great day y'all

summer started on the beach

Well now it's officially summer. 
A bunch of gal pals, their kiddos, my kiddos, and I went to the beach to celebrate it!! Oh it was a such a beautiful day. The sun felt so wonderful, I even managed to get a burn. :/  The sun beating down, the waves coming and going in a rhythmic motion and sound. Seagull floating above letting out their usual squawk waiting for some food to drop, or steal it away from you. Sail boats sailing along. Happy children playing and splashing in the water. Yup we are even crazy to go swimming in the Atlantic ocean. Yes it's really cold. So cold your knee caps shiver! Only till your body temperature drops and you can feel nothing. LOL. But seriously!!  Even a couple got married and had some fun pictures taken down on the beach!

All and all it was nice to get away from the farm and chill. And what a beautiful ending to a great day it was.

My view never gets old. I pray I always live where there are open fields, and a glorious view of the mountains in the distance and the sun setting in the west.

Have a great night y'all.
