Years ago, I'd have been flabbergasted to know that this version of older me wasn't devouring multiple books weekly...but here I am, and life is what it is. There are a million flimsy excuses I could give, and we've all used them a million times: work, house, kids, family, farm, etc, etc, but they're just … Continue reading I read a book!
THIS. IS. DA. BOMB!!! Dump all this in the Instapot (chop the veggies, pasta goes in uncooked, and boneless skinless chicken breasts go in frozen - could it be any easier???).

The vet even checked her Friday night while she was … Continue reading Beautiful boy
We just walked in the door (11pm). We've been at the barn since 5:30. Bessie is down. We called for an emergency vet visit - she has milk fever. She seems like she will pull through: she's alert, eating, and drinking. She just can't get up. If Ted hadn't caught it though...she'd have been gone … Continue reading Milk fever!!!
