Thought I would touch base and let you all know what has been going on. It is planting time at our house right now. So the guys are busy in the fields. Until that is done everything else is on the back burner. Tuesday I went and got 4 new calves from a local farmer to add to the herd. The moms and baby's are out on pasture it is so fun watching the babies play. I love this time of year seeing everything bring new life. Yesterday was a whirlwind of a day started out at 4:00 a.m. as usual. I will give you a little diary of what went on yesterday. Started out with doing chores then in to do three loads of laundry and get it hung on the line to dry. Then get the spot ready where we are going to put the chicks I will be picking up later. Off to town with hubby to take cows to the auction and go pick up a check. Home for about an hour then to the auction to watch our cows sell and pick up our check. Then we head to farm bureau to get sweet corn seed, lettuce and pumpkin seed. Yes it is time to start planting the garden also. My husband always plants our sweet corn with the corn planter which is so nice. On to the farm store to get lights feed and a water er for chicks. To the mans house where I'm picking up a hundred chicks. Get them all caught head home put them up. On to chores mind you the guys are in the field so it was up to me and the daughter to get all the chores done. She is so sweet she did all the milking and my side of the chores well I did the guys chores. Got all done with that in the house to have supper which Dad fixed for us sure glad I did not have that to do to. Little computer time then go pick up hubby from field on to the house for the night. Bed finally about 10:00. So hoping today will slow down a little. Well that is what has been going on around here. Hope you are all doing good. Leave me a comment and let me know what has been going on around your home. Have a great day. God bless Rebekah


  1. Its definitely a busy time of year! We dont have fields to plantbyt we have been working on gardens. The goats have all had babies and so we are milking. Plus all the usual things and then with the weather being nicer our weekends are full too! Have a good day!

  2. Hi Rebekah - It's good that your daughter can help with the chores with the guys are busy planting. It's been busy around here too. Milking, making cheese, more kidding from the first fresheners, working on finishing the cheese processing room for final inspection so I can sell my cheese at the farmers markets this summer. It all makes for long days ... but my days are not as long as yours! Take care!

  3. I took my husbands truck in for an oil change this morning. Yesterday I sold my dads mobility scooter to a nice local man through craigs list. Made turkey soup with the last of the leftover thanksgiving bird! delicious. Baked a fresh rhubarb pie too. yum. We have a new front load washer that I am learning to use - too many buttons and lights and bells and whistles. Weeding the garden, put in bell pepper plants, seeded peas and bush beans, green onions, lettuce and swiss chard so far. Take care and I will pray that your family stays safe when they are so busy working hard around the farm. God bless your heart Rebekah.

  4. I think we are all busy at this time of year.


I would love to hear from my readers so please feel free to leave me a comment. Rebekah
