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!

Opening day

I can't help it...I just have to describe the day! It's clear and cool, about 50 out this morning. I've kept a journal for years so my kids and my grand children and hopefully many generations beyond will see what life was like for their parents and grandparents. I've written about major events, like when the kids were born and not so major events, like the first time I mowed in the spring. But no matter what I write about, I always start out with a weather report...so I guess when I post here, it's just habit...I will always start out with a weather report!

It's opening day of goose season here. We can tell by the trucks parked down at the south barn and the shots that rang out at daybreak. Lots of shots, but the geese just kept flying by! I wonder if those hunters realize, we can see that they missed.

JW and Sarah are on their way home and the good news of the day is that JW made the dairy judging team! He will be going to Harrisburg, PA, to judge that contest. I'm so excited. Now I just have to hope and pray they need a chaperon!

This weekend is the tractor show in Waldron. As of this minute, Luke's tractor isn't running but mine and JW's are so I guess we will take two tractors. The pull is on Monday and I look forward to watching the antique tractors pull and a picnic lunch.

Better get on with my day...I've got errands to run today!

Oh, and Shady Knoll...you have a great way describing things, the memories of your grandma's house made me want to go for a visit. How's that perked coffee!

Moscow farm...what's the weather in Idaho today?
