Saturday Farm Photo: It's a Beautiful Day To. . .

Pregnant ewes heading out to graze on a beautiful winter day -

Breathe in the crisp winter air.

Hang laundry on a breezy line.

Be a pregnant sheep on a farm in the middle of nowhere.

Visualize all of the wonderful things that are possible in a brand new year.

Happy, happy, new, new!

  4. Happy New Year to you, Farmgirl Susan, and to Hunky Joe, Bert, Marta Beast, Lucky Buddy Bear, Evie, Daphne, Gus, Esmeralda, Gnat, Fernando, Whitey, Topaz, Mr. Midnight, Molly Doodlebug, Kit Kat Kate, Smudge, and,,,uhhh, who am I forgetting? I know there's more! Anyway, Happy New Year to all of you and the rest of the zoo crew. Looking forward to another year of cute critter photos, recipes, shots of your antiques and quilts and new finds, and whatever else you care to gift us with. Thanks for the laughs, the smiles, and yes, the occasional tear. All are appreciated. Enjoy your first full year in the new place, too.

  5. Happy New Year to you and all of your farm friends! I love looking back and reading/re-reading stories about Cary, Robin, and daily life there. Thank you for sharing it all. I whipped up your Raspberry Almond Bars again yesterday. You are so right---they are fast,easy, and delicious. Great to share.

  6. A belated Happy New Year to you and the farm gang. I trust and hope there was MUCH champagne drinking and chip and dip enjoying in your celebrations :)


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!
