Thursday Dose of Cute: Beagle Crossing

The Daily Donkey 5: Bear Crossing

Love longears? The Daily Donkey has begun! There's a new donkey photo posted every single day. You'll find all The Daily Donkeys corralled up here.

©, the eleven degrees below zero this morning foodie farm blog where the week's excitement continues with—despite the giant, made in Minnesota wood furnace running all night—a mysterious burst pipe in the kitchen wall of the new house (which we're partly moved into), resulting in over 40 gallons of water flooding across much of the toasty warm downstairs. It could have been a whole lot worse, though. Our most prized posession today (after wine, beer, and chocolate)? Definitely the wet/dry vac. That thing is amazing.


  1. This really isn't your week, is it? I'm amazed at how stoically you and Joe take all these mishaps. Of course, that is absolutely the right attitude, but I know I'd be tearing my hair out. Hope you feel 100% again very soon and that there are no further mysterious burst pipes in either the new house, or the old Shack. Cynthia
    PS: I too love the Daily Donkeys.

  2. Bert is too cute! He is all tummy (on legs)
    Pudge would have been a good name! Just adorable!

  3. I briefly saw/heard on the weather report (in Virginia) that MO was experiencing minus 31 degrees and my very first thought as a Positive one sent to your animals for warmth in this cold winter. We are all rooting for them!

  4. I hope it's going to warm up for your soon.

    Have a great weekend.

  5. No! Unfortunately I can well imagine what you are going through. It's amazing how quickly water spreads and seeps and destroys things. We are the around owners of not one, not two, but three wet/dry vac things. Here's hoping it warms up soon.

  6. Susan, when are 'they' going to give you a well-deserved break? I hope you have all that water cleaned up (sigh!) and have figured out why the pipe burst in the first place and now it's fixed. I rooting for you!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
