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

Skating On Thick Ice

Erratic weather has slowed down the installation of our solar panels.
You might remember that I had mentioned on Thursday that we were having 
warmer temperatures and rain.
Thursday night the temperatures plummeted and the farm
turned into a sheet of ice.

When the solar company returned to work that morning,
this happened.

Four hours later, the wrecking company finally had them freed from the ditch.

Needless to say, no work was done on Friday.
Today will be a big work day and our power will be off all day.
Hubbs and I are heading to town for lunch and a movie while the power is off.

The rest of our weekend was wonderfully peaceful.
We were treated to spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

What a wonderful backdrop to morning chores!

Along the way, I couldn't help but notice that O'Malley had a case of the 
creeping dingleberries.

She was obviously in need of a little assistance.

Much better, said I.
She agreed with a smile (and a little giggle, too!)

We pulled a name, randomly, from a hat for the extra magazine copy.
