Today was a sunny, albeit blustery, day. Our cows, Midnight and Daisy Mae, are doing well with their calves. I love watching the calves romp around the barnyard as they explore their world. I make a point to go see the cows often so they will get used to me. I managed to get 10 feet from Daisy Mae, who was not about to let me get too close to Moonbeam, her calf.

We have a chicken coop that was used many years ago but unfortunately, raccoons have used it as a rest area. I spent some time assessing what would be needed should we be able to get geese or ducks someday. I know it goes against my family's tradition of raising chickens, but dear Andrew grew up with ducks and geese. A good wife knows when to compromise.

I spent the rest of my afternoon walking around the farm, taking in the quiet and appreciating all that we are blessed with here.
With love and hopes for spring (soon),
