It's a rainy morning here on the Knolltop. We need the rain, but, the neighbors hay got wet and that's not good!
Last evening Jake's game was a blowout. They won 17-3 in four innings. Jake caught most of the game and then came in to pitch and had three K's to end the inning. He was on fire. But then it started to rain and we were so far ahead, they decided to quit. And I almost forgot Jake's double and a triple with an error that brought him home. While it's great to see him have success, he tends to strut around like the lone rooster in a hen house. He needs to stop that and I think his brothers have decided to help him quit his cocky habit.
Today I will work in my flower beds since the rain has softened the ground. I still have to get the rest of my garden in....now I'm getting a little anxious. Does anyone else have their garden totally planted?
And I'd like to address a comment left by a Wisconsin dairy wife about my writing. I so appreciate your kind words about this blog. I'm glad you find this a good place to visit and while we are isolated on our farms, we can still be a "community of farm wives" here. I love to read about life on other farms and how they compare. So, don't worry about this commentary changing too much, this is where I can just write with reckless abandon. I don't have to proof it as much as I do when I write for the papers! This is fun writing! Thanks again for your kind words of encouragement!
