Beginning a Farm Day

She stirs, and slips farther down into the cocoon of flannel and quilts.  There's only a glimmer of light at the window; no need to look at the digital numbers to know it's time to get up.  With a prayer for guidance and protection throughout the day, she puts her feet onto the cold floor.

Basic housework and breakfast out of the way, she puts on the worn jacket and boots and begins another day on the farm.


  1. Hi Charlotte, hope you have a blessed day on the farm!!

  2. Oh, that lovely cocoon of flannel and quilts...it has been so hard to leave it these past two mornings since school started back.

  3. There's a sweet sense of beckoning to come see what the day brings in your lovely photo and thoughts.. I hope yours are always great ones.

  4. Hope you're having a lot of nice days on the farm.. We are having alot of rainy days and I'm trying not to complain because I think of ya'll and what you've went through.. Hope you're getting some now.. I want to let you know I'll be away for a little bit. I'm fighting an old bug and larangitis to boot. Hope to be back soon.. You take care and stay well.. Susie

  5. I'm sure it's hard to get started on those cold winter days.
    Love the photo!
    Have a good day!

  6. I am finally catching up with blog posts Charlotte!
    I love this beautiful word picture. I wonder if you know what a sweet ministry you have. The way you care for those around you, the love you put into your home and your quilting. You are very special my friend.

  7. I love hearing how your day begins, Charlotte...
    And that picture looks like a chilly frosty start to your farm chores!

  8. Brrr... I would have been so tempted to stay in the cocoon. In fact I AM tempted, every single morning. :) But duty calls.

    Sweet post.
