Farm Wife ~~ Monday

"Come home, come home; it's supper time." It's funny how the cows recognize the sound of our truck and start bawling before it's even in sight, and then come to meet us.

I'm afraid I don't have anything very interesting to write about today. We've worked at the chicken houses getting ready for babies tomorrow. I've been making up feed trays and putting them under the feed lines. The temperature was wonderful for working today, but the wind was too strong!

I did some quilting while we were without chickens; I think I could stay busy if we retired, but I don't see that happening just yet.

I'm having trouble leaving comments because I can't always read the letters in the word verification, so if you don't hear from me, that's the reason; I still read your posts every day.



  1. Wow, green grass! Looks almost like a spring time picture. Looking forward to seeing the quilt you have been working on. Now let's see if I can figure out the words!

  2. Mary, I'm afraid that's little weeds, not grass. I took the words away! (I think)

  3. I've been having trouble with the word verification too! The other night I had to try about five times before I got it right.

  4. I'm reading a lot of complaints about the word verification difficulties in leaving comments. There are only a couple of blogs that I read who use those.
    Good luck with the baby chicks!

  5. Love the image.
    I just tried to post something and it said my browser was no long supported by blogger.
    Could not post.
    Do not even know what that means.

  6. I like how you said the cows come to the sound of the truck, Charlotte.... our sheep are the same way about the 4 wheeler.
    Hope you share some more pictures of your quilts with us!

  7. Reminds me of something my husband's grandmother told me-she said my then baby girls responded to the sound of my voice-not to what I was actually saying-just the tone : ) I think your cows-and our pets are the same way : )
