Last year because of the weather, hay became hard to find around here. We were sweating during January, worried we wouldn't be able to feed our herd. We have just a hair under 50 acres, but it's almost all wooded so not good for hay making (perfect for pigs though!).This year, we are bound and … Continue reading Next to last load
I made it a goal two weeks ago to read more books (especially fiction - I love good fiction!). I ran across this book on Amazon and ordered it immediately. I love anything to do with teaching, and this book didn't disappoint. It's a quick read at just under 300 pages. I took it with … Continue reading “The Unteachables”

One year and two days since I laid on your bed and held you, wishing your suffering would end but knowing I wasn't ready to let you go but needed to... One year and … Continue reading It’s been a year, Gramma
I finally got around to making my own tulip wreath using Dollar Tree materials this morning! I used 23 flower stems, 1 roll of ribbon (used the wrap method to hold the flowers on the frame), and 1 wire frame. I think I'm possibly going to add another set of stems in the top left … Continue reading Tulip wreath
