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!

Beautiful Game Day!

Good afternoon from the Knolltop!  It's cool, a bit windy but not a cloud, well, maybe a couple of clouds in the sky! I just got back from walking outside, yes normally I walk on the treadmill, but today, I ventured out while Sadie was sleeping.  I have to sneak out like a mom with an anxious baby.  Sadie loves to go with me but she is getting so old, blind and deaf, she doesn't hear cars coming and of course she doesn't hear me calling her.  Yes, I know what you're thinking....put a leash on the dog gone dog!  Good idea....but it's easier to sneak out.

The boys have a game today at home. I will take my trusty camera and get some pictures.  It occurred to me I have no baseball pictures and I will need some for JW's open house.  Oh my heaven's I said the O.H. words! Every time I speak or hear those words I start to cringe!  I'm not organized enough to have a full fledged open house...doggone it I said it again (cringe, cringe, cringe)

I'm getting this thing planned and progressing along and I feel pretty 'ok' about it.  Just as long as I stay away from other mothers who are more organized and I don't have to listen to how they have the tent ordered the food is finalized, the picture collage is done, the ice sculpture is in the freezer along with all the home made cookies, cakes, pies, pastries and every other delectable thing you could see at an open house.  Come on people....this isn't a wedding reception!!!!!! (deep breath, phew...almost had a full blown panic attack!)

Nope, we aren't doing all that food, people can have their main course at the other 20 open houses, they will have to suffer through ice cream sundaes at JW's party.  Yep, that's what we're serving, ice cream with all the toppings, root beer floats and brownies! What else would you expect from a dairy farm????? I think I'll order some of those M&M's with JW's name on them...those sound so fun!

Okay, now it's time to make subs for half the baseball team.  Every time I take the subs into the boys, they tell me, "Oh mom, Tommy wants a sub next time!"  Oh, okay, just call me "Subway!"  JW, Luke, Jake, Dewey, Dave and Logan today.....I wonder who we will add next week?

Gotta go!
