Yay for Saturday

Today has been sunny, breezy, and perfect so far.  The animals are grazing and soaking up the sun.  
Laundry is hanging on the line, I am wearing my favorite overalls, flannel, and baseball cap.  
Birds are singing, tractors are driving by with discs, plows, and harrows to finish up field prep before planting... All I want is a hammock and a good book-- but there is always something else to do here.  
And yet, I wouldn't have it any other way.  Hooray for Saturday!

"Spr-ummer?"

Our weather this month has had my closet in an unroar-- one day wool sweaters and long skirts, the next short sleeves and capris. It's just proof that we live in Northern Illinois.  
The animals are enjoying the daily grazing on the new grasses and our little ducklings, goslings, and chicks are getting a taste of the fresh air.  
My extended family help repair an unused chicken coop and Travis has been helping till the garden in preparation for the seedlings.  
We are grateful for a life on the farm and look forward to more sunshine and the blessings that come from country living. 
Enjoy the pictures.  
Sending love and sun-warmed kisses from the farm.
