Thankful Thursday


Thankful this Thursday for farm chores.  Yes, you read that right.  While the rhythm of our community has been disrupted, things continue to move right along here at the farmette.  

It's me with a bovine friend. 

Chores make for a day of routine and zero boredom.  


The view from the barn.  


Linking up today with Teresa, because I know there is a fence out in that field, somewhere.....

    1. You know, working in the cold is very motivating. lol And, it is always better to shovel manure when it is 20 degrees than when it is 90 degrees.

  23. Snow can make farming difficult; we've had trouble with the watering troughs in this 0 degree weather. My husband is checking them 3-4 times a day to be sure the cattle have water. Lovely photos.
