Taking a break from the garden
Monday, July 21, 2014      20 comments

With the heat and high humidity, we opted to take a break from the garden. We even waited until much later to do the chores. Even now the heat is oppressive. It will be a bit cooler tomorrow and back to normal highs by the weekend. DH wi... Read more
"Till" we meet again
Sunday, July 20, 2014      22 comments

DH and I spent a good portion of the morning running both tillers and we are about 80% done with the areas we weeded before. With the extreme heat expected tomorrow , it was better to do as much today while the low cloud cover was in pla... Read more
Celebrating a very special day
Saturday, July 19, 2014      21 comments

in an not so special way. Pretty much like every other day of the year. DH turned 65 today. After I wished him a "Happy Birthday", he said, "Oh, I forgot". This from the guy who was telling everyone for the last 18 days that he was officia... Read more
Back at it again

Ducked out of work an hour early and headed for the garden. Another 40+ minutes with Mr Mantis and the arms and back are doing fine. I did the milking (4 tonight) and had just picked the eggs when DH got back from a delivery. He needed t... Read more
On to other things

Most of the large weeds are pulled and I decided that I would try my hand at tilling the open areas. It seemed like a good idea with just one hitch. Some of these are walking paths and have gotten considerable more packed that the earth ... Read more
Got it done
Wednesday, July 16, 2014      21 comments

I studied for my insurance license renewal, took the test a second time and passed. I won't have to do this again for 2 years but think I may start a little sooner next time. But this is what I said 2 years ago. Hmmmm! I may have to post... Read more
Another deadline met

Today was the last day of crop insurance reporting and it is behind us for another year. Woohoo! DH and I both have continuing ed requirements to fulfill but we can focus on that and not try to divide our attention anymore. We are down... Read more
Possibly breaking a record
Monday, July 14, 2014      20 comments

We could set a record overnight low if the temperature falls below 48 degrees. It feels more like late September than July. I had a fun experience this afternoon as an acquaintance brought her cousin to the farm to watch me milk the goat... Read more

I have updated my photo gallery with a new picture see you can see the new hair color I chose to use. DH hasn't said a word about the shade of pecan yet but it was my anniversary gift to me a week ago. I think I like it a lot! Thanks f... Read more
Found the chick and other things
Saturday, July 12, 2014      19 comments

The rain this morning did not keep me from washing 5 loads of laundry and hanging it outside, despite the clouds and lingering showers. It all dried nicely when the sun came out this afternoon. Spent quite a bit of time cleaning house an... Read more
Braving the heat and humidity
Friday, July 11, 2014      16 comments

We closed the office early and could have skipped going to the garden completely but decided that if it was going to rain, we would chance it. The air temperature was 95 and the humidity was right up there too. Just a might sticky! I p... Read more

Dividing my time
Thursday, July 10, 2014      12 comments

Between the garden and the farm chores, my time to spend Sparking really goes down. But this is only a passing phase. In about 4 months time, the garden will be empty and the chores will dwindle as they do when the busy summer is over. N... Read more
Where are you going with this, Francine?
Wednesday, July 09, 2014      18 comments

Who is Francine? My alter ego, of sorts. I call myself Francine when I take a mental vacation and forget to come back. In this respect, I have been cutting back on artificial creamer and sweeteners but still drank a diet soda last night ... Read more
A moment to catch my breath
Tuesday, July 08, 2014      12 comments

This morning was a little hectic but the afternoon was quieter so I could catch my breath. Amazing how much you appreciate the silence when it comes. No phones, no customers and no radio in the background to distract me. Heaven! We wen... Read more
