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!

Normal Monday

Snow, snow and more snow cover the knolltop. We don't need a cable connecting the house to the barn so we can go back and forth....yet....but we've got enough snow for my taste!

Over the weekend, we attended our annual DHIA banquet at Hillsdale College. Honestly if it weren't for the many sponsors who support that, we wouldn't have a chance to dress up and go out to fellowship with other dairy farmers and industry folks.

Bobby and I sat with Mark Adam and his wife Donna. Remember Mark? He's the Packer fairy? And also head of DHIA services here in the Midwest. I'm sure he'd rather be remembered as the Packer Fairy, but really Mark, we need to keep you looking professional....sorry.

We had a great meal, great conversation and I even won a door prize, of which I know the price of because I buy this item regularly and it costs more than the two tickets to the banquet! So, in my way of thinking...I made money by attending the banquet!

Well, I will also get a story out of it for the paper too, so indeed, I really will make a little mad money as my mom calls it!

It's back to the normal schedule today, chores, laundry, cooking, writing, napping. We're in for more snow, so who knows if the kids will have school tomorrow??????
