Knolltop Farm Wife

Welcome to my blog! I'm a wife, mother of four and a self-employed freelance writer. I live on a dairy farm with my family and I enjoy sharing our life with family, friends and anyone else who wants to visit the farm. There's no telling what the I will write about from day to day, but hopefully you'll be enriched when you stop by! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Takin' a break

I just was notified that my mother in law and sister in law will not be arriving next week as planned. In her email she said that I could take a break from cleaning...oh no, that will not happen. I've got everyone in cleaning mode and that's the way I'm going to keep them! (Can you hear the whip?)

Last evening we attended a birthday party for a new teenager. They are good friends of the family and we enjoy their fellowship. So of course when she invited us over for cake we had to say yes. This woman has a flair for baking and she loves doing it...so when she bakes she really goes to town! She had made Oreo cookie dessert with real whipped cream and homemade chocolate pudding in the middle. She had raspberry cheesecake, just a glance at it made you gain 10 pounds. And she had some St. Louis Butter cake with creamed blueberries for the topping. Oh my, I couldn't decide so.....yes, you guessed it, just like with Thanksgiving pies...I had a little of each kind! Life is too short not to have some of each!

On to the Knolltop happenings. My baby calves have learned to do the dog paddle. Last night...someone...we haven't pinpointed the culprit....left the hose trickling. So this morning, the area where my six calves live was flooded and they were paddling around...well not really, they were just kind of wading around. What a sight. I bailed them out and put down fresh shavings...they were so happy to lay down in dry bedding!
