“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”

While I Was Gone...

I often get asked how I accomplish so much in one day.
I wish I had an easy answer for you.
I am by nature a "busy" person...and not one to sit much.


Hubbs and I are both very organized...
and now that Hubbs is retired, the work gets done in half the time,
as there are now two of us working together.


Yesterday I spent the day with Mackenzie and Easton...
leaving the farm at sun-up and not returning home until sundown.
I have to say...
working a day on the farm 
is much easier than keeping a 3 month old and a 2 year old for the entire day!!
We had a fun day... full of play,
but by the end of it I was beat!

While I was gone...


armed with lots of Ritz crackers,
Hubbs held down the farm.
(Amanda was home for the evening and took some photos for me.)

Our guinea babes are just about full grown.
They spend most of their days outside their house.


Apparently, once evening has arrived...
it is very scary to have to go back into a dark house...
and so the guineas stay outside....


unless we turn on a light for them...
which we do (every afternoon).



Then, by sundown, they happily return to their cozy little house
to roost for the night.
At bedtime, we turn off their night.
"Sleep tight, crazy birds!"
