Speaking of here.... Here is a picture of our farm, or at least the home place. Those are our cattle out back!
"We" includes myself, Tall Guy, Tink (8), and Bear(6), oh and Pumpkin (cat) and Sadie (dog). Of course Pumpkin gets a picture all to herself; she is, after all, a cat! Can you find her in the carpet? ;-)
Just a bit about me: I am a Taurus, or at least I thought I was until the other week when someone decided to mess with the zodiac signs~ ! Seriously?!?! Someone has way too much time on his/her hands!
Do not hold this next one against me, but I taught English for 18 years! I do not grade comments, and I am sure if you tune in enough times, you will catch me in many goofs and gaffs. I try my dangedest (sp? See???) to get it all right, but sometimes it's just crazy enough around here that I have to hit the PUBLISH button and pray most of it is right!
Why so crazy? Because I am a 48 1/2 year old farm wife and mother of two girls, ages eight and six! Yep! Pregnancy at 40 made me decide to retire from teaching to focus on trying to raise my own kids. I so miss my "big kids," but I am happy to say I keep in contact with many of them through Facebook.
I also belong, not sure that is the right term, but I am part of a group called Real Farmwives of America. You can click on the button at the top of my page and visit our Facebook page. We are a group of moms, working gals, cooks, aspiring cleaners, photographers, storytellers, crafters, and we are all connected through agriculture. It is our hope that anyone having questions about the farm, grain or livestock, will send questions our way so we can answer them. We have some ladies in very prestigious Indiana agricultural organizations and businesses in this group in addition to those of us who work with our husbands on a daily basis. This husband/wife bonding makes for some pretty good stories. Chick here for a sample! Oh Dang! Here is one more!
Take a look around, enjoy the scenery, ask me questions, and I look forward to meeting you too! Sigh...., the girls are still up, and it is 8:25 p.m. Tall Guy is at a windmill meeting, and I went to Zumba class tonight, so we are a bit behind schedule. A big "Thank you" to Tall Guy's folks for watching the girls. Time to herd this group of two upstairs and in to bed! I hope I remember to go out and check the wood burner before I go to bed. TG will be so proud of me!
