Changes on the Farm

I'm finally back at work and happy to see some of the changes that occurred over the winter.

The green and newly blossoming trees.
A new baby calf.
Lighting the beehive oven, the first time since I've worked here.
A new baby lamb with a protective new mama.
New friends. :)
I'm so excited to be back on the farm again. Even with all of the stressful things that happen there and the physical labor, it is still the most relaxing place I ever go. In the early mornings, when the fog hangs low and there's dew on everything, I find myself crossing the bridge that leads from the 21st century into the 18th century. I always take a moment before I step off the bridge to look over the beauty of the farm and remind myself to "never take it for granted."

I'd like to think the farm misses us too after being shut up all winter. :)

  2. New baby calf! New baby lamb! Oh dear, so much cuteness! Bought off by so much work, no doubt... but I guess all the more wonderful for that. :-)

    1. I'm sorry your day was so frustrating. It was such a nice day out. I think we might have to start having discipline rules. We never needed them before but I think children are not getting the proper structure at home anymore. (The change in behavior in 5 years has been astounding.)

      I think it's more than just "kids these days." They obviously aren't taught what is appropriate.
