My newest journey

Hi everyone! Please come follow me on my newest journey. I have joined a wonderful team aa an Independent consultant at Thirty One Gifts. I am very excited to see where this will take me. I decided to travel this path after realizing I was in a huge rut!! I have been here on the farm all day everyday and quite frankly, I need new scenery!
I fell in love with these products after purchasing a thermal lunch bag for my son, through a fundraiser. After it using it for a week,I realized how much cooler it kept my sons lunch. So I purchased a few other things and attended a party, thatw as it, I was hooked!
We have many great products and organizing bags, totesand baskets. Many of our products can be personalized. If you are interested in hosting a party or browsing a catalog either contact me directly through email or feel free to call me at the number below. You can also browse and shop from my website.

Who is taking care of us?

This morning, my FIL was trampled by out breeding bull here on the farm.FIL is going to be okay, he has 3 cracked ribs and a large bruise on his leg, but he will recover with time and rest. The bull however will recover in our freezer.
We had to call an ambulance for my FIL. Must to his dismay, he had to be taken out on a stretcher. When the medic arrived, he came to the door and was greeted by MIL. He asked her what happened, and she said, " my husband was trampled by a bull." the medic stopped dead in his tracks and said," is the bull in the house?" REALLY. WOW!! He is suppose to take of someone that could be in grave danger? Luckily, my father was working at the firehouse today so, he provided common sense direction.
I proceeded to call my dad and told him to make the local ambulance crew aware, that around these parts, we have barns for our animals. We don't let any of the cows in the house, no not even the bull.

Rock you like a hurricane...or not

So the aftermath of hurricane Irene....not really. We never lost power, it blinked three times, but never out long eneough to even reset the clocks. We did lose a small piece of the barn biggie. However the worst part of the whole storm was Zane! He wouldn't go to sleep! When mr. Sandman finally came, it was very restful. The first time the power blinked, zane jumped out of bed, turned on his flashlight...but not just any was a flashlight that firefighters use in dark, smokey buildings. So it was VERY bright, and he decided to shine it directly in my eyes to wake me up. That was probably the worst of the storm.
I have, however heard many people do not have power. Guess we really lucked out with this one!

My Farmgirl Quilt

To all of my farmgirl friends. Here is the quilt my step mom made me for my birthday in May. It is made with Mary Jane's farmgirl fabric. This was such a surprise to me. I was shaking when I opened it.
Bonnie (my step mom) is such a wonderful lady. she made this for me even though she has arthritis in her thumb that has been bothering her lately. I am so blessed:)

Crazy Day!! Full Moon?

Craziness happened from the moment I stepped out of bed. Things here on the farm can get pretty crazy, but that usually has something to do with broken down equipment, or the weather, or the cows. Not today.
Today started with the cat..smudge. Smudge is Zane's (my son) cat. He is a good cat for the most part, but he has a real problem with getting in your face. This morning it was my face he sat on to wake me up! So I get up, head downstairs to start breakfast for my husband who would be coming in from the barn within the half hour. I get out our fresh eggs and start to take one out, and what happens? yep it broke right in my hand! So after washing up I got breakfast under way.
I then poked my head out of the door to let my husband know it was ready. And low and behold, out INSIDE cat, darts OUTSIDE! GREAT! So he takes off chasing after a barn. Zane gets wind of what is happening and that sets him off. So now I am trying to capture the cat and deal with a crying 6yo. Ok we get the cat back safely and calm the boy down.
Lunch goes off without a hitch, but then comes my trip to town. I went to pick up some sweet corn and put gas in the car. No problems there, all the chaos starts on my way home.
As I am trying to make my home, and enjoying the beautiful weather, I crest the hill and low and behold, a car goes to make a turn, and completely neglects the car coming in the other direction. Yep an accident!! Great. I am right at my aunt's driveway so I pull in there, which is gonna make me late for milking time...but after the day I have had, that is okay with me.
I make it home and fix supper. Well I tried the sweet corn on the per directions from my aunt. didn't cook. So now I have the whole supper finished except what everyone is waiting for...sweet corn! So after starting all over with that, we finishe up our meal.
Now off to pick some raspberries, blackberries and Mulberries. Zane and I go to tree line and start looking for the ripe ones. I find some and head over to them....and low and behold, a SNAKE in the bush. Ok, done! We don't need those anyway!
So as I am geting ready to climb into bed, I have to peek outside to see if there is a full moon. However, we go to bed too early, it isn't even dark out yet:(
