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!

Bianca's Ark

The blizzard watch and storm warning were cancelled, so last evening Bobby and I ventured out for the boys basketball games leaving Sarah and Cammie with the remaining chores. We figured if the wind wasn't going to blow, the barn would be fine and it was....until.....

Getting to the barn on time was a good thing this morning because when I walked into the stable to hang the milkers on the milker cart I heard commotion down by Bianca's stall and then heard that awful sound that you don't ever want to hear, especially in the middle of the winter unless you're at an indoor water park.....the gushing of water!

I looked down there and one of the water lines had burst! I happened to be standing right at the shut off valve and quickly turned it off. I looked at Bobby and said, "Praise Jesus that happened while we were here! Otherwise Bianca might be wearing a carpenters belt, trying her "hoof" at building an ark!"

So now that the dishes are done and Bobby is gone to town for plumbing supplies, I'm going to lay down...since we didn't get in until 11 last night....I'm tired! By the way...the boys won..JV and Varsity!
