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!

Back to the grind

Well, the kids had a day off yesterday due to the cold weather and blowing and drifting snow. But they will go back today...it's just cold out there this morning.

Last Thursday, JW and Luke were supposed to have their FFA contest, but it was rescheduled because the host school didn't have school that day because of the snow storm. It was rescheduled for yesterday, but was postponed again because of no school. So today is the finally the big day for the FFA contest and it will go rain or shine, blizzard or not. So.....you know what that means....pray for JW today! (Thank you!)

Sarah spent the weekend at Grandma's house getting totally spoiled. Between eating out and going to the outlet mall, they hardly had a chance to catch their breath! But I'm not complaining because I was the recipient of some outlet mall purchases....is there anything better than new clothes?

Well, I've got some writing to do today....and some phone calls to make....and some thinking I need to do about writing a book. After spending the weekend with a self published author, I think I can do that....I just have to formulate a plan. And that's where you come in. I want to know what you think about a book that is a collection of my columns over the past 10 years. Yes, tell me honestly....hate the idea? Love the idea? Think it's a waste of time? Would you be the first in line for an autographed copy? Is there a place for a collection of farmwife stories? You guys are the reading professionals....let's hear it!

Better get the pancakes on the table!

Hey Liss, I've been saying for years that you have a book just waiting to be put together. I've got all the columns and I've already started to get them organized so you can pick out the ones you like the best (and one or two of my favorites!!)They go way back and it's fun to see how your writing has grown and changed with the years. It will be a great book--spoken just like a mom.

I would certainly stand in line for the autographed copy!!

Yes, I think it is a wonderful idea ;) I have been reading your column and your blog for quite a while and love it...been meaning to write and say so, but being a farm wife myself - one with slow dial up service (LOL!) - I don't always have time to wait for the computer to let me comment.

We'll be out here cheering you on and waiting for more news of that book!
