Momma Cow came to the pasture in the trailer.
Josh opened the gate and she hadn't even gotten out of the trailer all the way and was eating. She probably weighs about 1400 pounds my husband thought.
The horses came a running that were from across the road to check out their new neighbor. Momma Cow liked that she was going to have friends I am sure.
Momma Cow belongs to our middle son Josh and she was moved to the pasture south of our farm. She is going to have a baby in a month and she is huge! Very pretty Momma though. Josh owns her and she just loves him! It is the sweetest thing to watch. She watched as Josh drove away. We will have to go and check on her today, to make sure she is okay. Today Jarad our youngest son will be bringing the other 3 little cows out today. She will be happy about that.
I have some "little blogger friends" that read my posts with their Momma's. One named Abby who is 2 and Jedidiah age 3. These are for you! Hope you enjoy and if any other children are reading, leave me a note please. If you have an animal tell me about what it is and what it's name is! I always had lots of animals when I was growing up in Alaska. You can even send me an email of your pet and I will show my grandchildren.
I checked Little Miss Fluff to see if one of the eggs hatched yet. Not yet! I will check again tomorrow and if anything happens, I will let you know. She only had two eggs left, one duck and one chicken. We hope they will hatch soon.
The other day I received an email from the Netherlands. Margriet sent me a picture of the stitchery she had been working on. I love seeing others work! I asked for permission to show you all. Thank you so much Margriet. It is beautiful and so fun that it was your very first. She has been saving dresses from her daughters from when they were young. She will be making a quilt with the designs. How precious is that? I can just see her sitting drinking her coffee and eating a bite of bread, stitching away! Wow, all the way from the Netherlands. I am a grateful lady!!!!
Her finished piece.............. waiting for the next. I love it!!!!!
If you have ideas of what you are doing with the stitchery, let me know!
We have company coming tonight for dinner. The girls are deciding what we will have. Last night I worked out in the Potter's Shed. I will have to have my husband leave his book work for a minute today to see if the Christmas lights are still working out there. I planted some of my flowers in old pails and other primitives. I swept and cleaned so it will be ready for you to see. It really is a cute place and I wish I could have each and every one of you come to my farm. I would serve you. Lemon Verbena Bread. Lemon Verbena is out in the herb section of your favorite greenhouse. If you live by me Stutzman's Greenhouse in Pleasantveiw south of Hutchinson has it. It is a really wonderful herb to have and loves sun! It will grow 3-4 feet tall. Love the smell of the leaves. I put this recipe and picture up last May, but thought I have more followers now that may not have seen this. I think this would be another wonderful little May Day gift for someone. A little tea cup, a lemon verbena plant and a loaf of the bread that has little purple Violas and the Red Verbena flowers (like I showed yesterday) decorated on the bread. Put the bread in a cellophane bag with a tag, tied with a ribbon and you have a really sweet little gift!
I almost forgot to show you my big find at the goodwill on Sat. These are light fixtures that go on ceiling fans, I think. I have an idea for them. Come back tomorrow and I will show you what I did for our party tonight. I think you will like! The just need a little cleaning and they will be ready! I thought they were so cute! Maybe you all know what I will do with them. Tell me what you think!
Don't forget to sign up for the Beth Moore Drawing, if you haven't already. Two posts down!
Have a wonderful day!!!! I am going to work on my memorizing with the girls! Thank you for those that are doing this with us. This will be a good thing!!!!!!!
