Wishing you a peaceful (and uneventful!) weekend.

©, where we've been soaking up the sun, working in the kitchen garden, watching the grass in the fields take off after getting at least a foot of rain in the past week, and are thankfully once again able to ford the overflowing wet weather creek in rubber boots rather than bare legs.

And although it's supposed to rain again for the next three days, we now have a truck parked on the other side of the creek, so hopefully this Monday we'll still be able to get out for our weekly milk (that comes straight from the Jersey cows down the road—SO good) and supply run.

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.
