Fall

October 31st, 2013 · No Comments · Life on the farm, Travels

I love Fall, I always have.  I feel energized and at peace, anticipating the winter holiday season.  I hate the heat of the summer so Fall is that breath of fresh air after cooped up air conditioning season.  The colors, fog, and dew are the most beautiful during this time and makes driving pleasant.  When […]

Tap, Tap, Tap; Is this thing still on?

October 28th, 2013 · No Comments · Family, Life on the farm

I’ve been gone a long, long, LONG time from my dear friend that is this blog. It was such a comforting journal for me as well as a way to connect with friends and family, to express myself, and keep up with the happenings ’round here. So much has happened over the past couple of […]

Can I get an Amen?

April 6th, 2011 · No Comments · Cows, Life on the farm

Ed, Darren, Kenny, and I were all in the cow pasture, which now includes a raging hormonal bull, last night as we separated TBone and Moo out of the herd and moved them into the barn resulting in no injuries to bovine or humans.  It’s a Good Thing.  And now that I’m safely sitting at […]

Thank you farmer-who-works-the-pasture-to-the-North

March 20th, 2011 · No Comments · Life on the farm

Some farmers own the land they work and some get paid to work a piece of land while others get a “crop share” as their payment.  We’re lucky to be surrounded on the sides bordering our little farm by some kind and hard-working farmers in whatever their capacity.  These farmers have been patient with me […]

For Rhonda

March 18th, 2011 · No Comments · Cows, Life on the farm

I have this friend in California and she lives in the city.  She’s a city girl.  I love torturing her by describing the activities here on the farm and I especially love talking about how I am knee deep in shit every day because there’s just nothing better for Rhonda than to have a good […]

An actual conversation

February 23rd, 2011 · 4 Comments · Life on the farm

I’m still not quite feeling totally normal but the good news is that I finished my monthly workload a week early so I have the days free until March 1 when my March workload will drop.  Which leads me to this interesting conversation I had this morning with a tech guy in our headquarters. Please […]

Family dinner

February 15th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Family, Life on the farm

Life on the farm is a wonderful experience but during the cold wintery months, it can go all Shining on you in a snap.  No one wants to get so isolated that you go down the path of Jack Nicholson’s character in that movie so it’s important to socialize in order to avoid that whole […]

Waves of snow

February 11th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Life on the farm, Uncategorized

We were recently treated to two solid days of snow falling and temps well below zero.  It wasn’t fun. But it was pretty! We’d been snowbound for a couple of days, including Ed, because of the 2′ of snow on the driveway. We were all snug in the warm house but when I told Ed […]

Kansas City or bust!

May 6th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Life on the farm, Uncategorized

Well I’ve had a whirlwind trip to Kansas City in which it rained every. single. day.  Thankfully our training was at the hotel so I only had to walk about 30′ to the training room.  We stayed at a very nice suite type place so I was able to pick up a few things at […]

What’s wrong with this picture

March 23rd, 2010 · No Comments · Life on the farm

I’ll tell you what’s wrong – the bull is in the horse corral.  He’s not supposed to be in the corral. Really?  I’m not supposed to be in here? What about in here?  Can I be in the horse stall? After calling Ed in a panic because “the bull’s out!” I remembered that he’s just […]
