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!

Good Morning from the Knolltop. It's supposed to be a warm day today and then get cold and windy. Being on a hill in an old farmhouse on a windy day is not a good combination!

Sarah redeemed herself and didn't know it. Last night when she came home from AWANA she asked if she could invite one of her friends for next week. Okay...I can breath a sigh of relief. After thinking about it yesterday I realized that she has gone to church her whole life and really can't imagine not going. So I'm sure she is thinking everyone else does too and they just need to go by themselves. Wouldn't it be great to live in such a rosy world? I'm thankful I have a 12 year old who still sees the world through rose colored glasses.

I had a nice surprise this morning. With my eggs, ham and toast, I found a jar of peach jam on my jelly shelves. I didn't think I had any left, but I guess I had one more jar of it. And boy was it good on my toast!

Bobby is headed to JW's game tonight over in Climax. It was my turn to go this week, but when he climbed into bed last week at 11:30 pm from the basketball game in Burr Oak, I decided then that he could go this week too. While I love to watch JW play I know Bobby gets a lot of enjoyment out of it too. Besides, I have two speaking engagements next week leaving them all home by I guess I can stay home tonight.
