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!

Too cold to milk cows.

It's -5 this morning on the Knolltop...and I hear that's warm compared to our dairy farming comrades in Wisconsin and Minnesota! You guys can keep all that really bitter cold weather, I'll keep my warm -5!

I really think I'm going to quit milking cows until it warms up. They are just gonna have to get along with out me for a couple of months until I can do chores in a sweatshirt. Four layers of clothing is not only cumbersome but it adds to the laundry, takes too much time to put on and take off and my goodness, I think I'm carrying around 30 extra pounds in clothing! Which means I'm using up more calories, which means those half dozen peanut butter cookies that I ate last night while watching "Idol" are free and clear...okay never mind, I'll keep milking cows...for now.

I've got a question, but then again, when don't I have a question? Do any of you belong to social networks like Linkedin, Facebook, Plaxaco or twitter? Those are just a few I can name that I'm a member of, but I wondered how many of you belong. I've found another network called Cattle grower network. It's a network for livestock producers, but I joined because of my writing and I thought it would be fun to see who was on and who I could connect with.

Okay, dishes await. Then back to the barn where the pipes are repaired thanks to "Bobby the Plumber."

Yes, we had about -20 (not counting the wind chill) this morning in WI and tomorrow is supposed to be colder... bbrrrr. My husband talked to his cousin in CA yesterday and they are 100 degrees warmer than us! No school today, so I am assuming we won't have it tomorrow either. There are lots of indoor projects I should be doing, but all I want to do is curl up and drink hot chocolate! ~Mandy
