What a beautiful weekend and it’s almost gone!!! I worked inside all day on Saturday and this morning Eddie helped me put up three new bluebird houses. One true sign of spring for me is watching the bluebirds clean house and rebuild. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to see crocuses pop out of the ground and shine and watching baby calves chasing each other all over the field. Our spring calving season has just began and we have four new babies on the ground and lost one. The babies are such little scamps and love worrying their mothers to death just like human babies by running off with the other kids. We have three cows going to the woods, as I write and will probably give birth by sundown. The sun is shining so bright and the sky is as blue as I’ve ever seen it. The air is still brisk but bearable with a hoodie on. This all makes me want to head to the greenhouse and play in the dirt but I know I can’t jump the gun just yet. It was 27* this morning and little seeds won’t germinate as well until it warms up some more and the frost are behind us. I can still hope and dream about all the baby plants popping out of the ground. So now I end this post so that I can complete some ironing and a baby quilt before the end of the day.
Country Girl Through & Through
I'm a country girl from the western part of Virginia in a small community of New Castle/Craig County. I've lived in Craig all my life-eighteen years with my parents and siblings and forty + years with my wonderful husband.
We have two children, a boy and a girl, and two grandchildren, all of which we love very much. We live on a 500 acre+ farm that has been in my husbands family for over 200 years. We are raising beef cattle, chickens, rabbits and a couple dogs.. We grow pretty much all we eat or harvest from the farm and I can't imagine living anywhere else.
I love to create, craft, quilt, read, write, decorate, crochet, candlewick, bake, bow hunt, cook, garden, farm animals and walking/hunting in the woods. I love sharing our home with family and friends.
I hope you enjoy the posts that I enter on my blog and hopefully will be helpful and/or fun to all that read it.
