WoooHooo times 2!

Today is a double blessing day. I woke up to a much happier me. Yesterday was a special day for me so I literally "escaped" the farm and took myself a drive. I spent a wonderful, relaxing day with my
Mom, Dad and sister, got to see both my brothers,
my brother in law, one of my nieces and my nephew. Sometimes with the pressures of my life, I forget about the old days, the laughs, the silly things we did when we were kids, the adventures we had as a family. It really does a body good to remember those things and share them with the ones you love.

Long drive home last night tho ( so very worth it) and sometime between the time I got home and the time my son rolled out of bed for morning chores, Goober cow gifted us with a healthy calf. Not sure on the gender yet, Goober is a little defensive a the moment so the "tail lift" can wait. She must smell the "cheese making" thoughts on me! hehehehe

  12. Cute calf! I cannot wait to get my dehydrator. On a recent post about it arriving soon, I talk about how dehydrating eggs is one of my goals. Maybe you can tutor me?

  13. Beautiful calf, do you know the gender yet?

    I'm so envious of you having fresh milk, we'll have to wait until next Spring, unless we buy another cow or some dairy goats. Right now I don't have the time nor the $$ to think about either.
    Enjoy that milk, cream and all the
    by-products :o)

    Blessings for your weekend,
    Kelle
