Today is our anniversary. Words could never come close to saying how much I love this man. Even after all these years, I still get excited when he comes home after being gone! Living on a farm has been the greatest blessing for this city girl, gone country. I love it here, on the land. If it had not been for Fred’s, support and encouragement, I would probably not have had nine kids. Thanks be to God for His goodness and the blessings of life!
As I looked for this photo to post, I was surprised to see that last year at this time, on this very day, we all had gathered up on the hill for a bon fire………babies and all. Some of the guys had their coats off even at night! What a sharp contrast to the weather we are having here now. I am seeing flurries out side as I type. It looks like we won’t be seeing any warm temps until the end of April…….drat. My consolation is that, the weather forecasts are quite often wrong.
Last year our apricot trees were blooming and today our farm is covered with ice and snow. Because it has been so cold, maybe, just maybe, we will have a crop of apricots this year. It will be interesting to see.
Our yard is full of thick slippery ice, snow and deep ruts so Fred decided to meet the wool truck at the end of the driveway. Luke was gone shearing and we were smoking bacon when the truck arrived. Caleb and Fred helped the Midstate Wool Grower driver load the semi with wool.
Caleb braved the cold to tend the bacon, taking turns with Fred. The bacon and hams turned out delicious.
Some of the grandchildren came down last night so that the parents could actually concentrate at the stations of the cross up at St. Leo. We are blessed, at least for now, to have all of our five grandchildren living near us. They can wipe out the living room in record time though!
I’d like to post more photos but……..there is an auction locally today and I’d like to attend. That means a little extra planning on my part. The crock pot was loaded already at 6:30 this morning with pork chops. Later I’ll add the sauer -kraut, but at least that means we can loaf some today and still have a hot cooked meal.
May the blessings continue to come in your life! The grandbabies are just adorable, don’t you wish you had half their energy? I hope it warms up soon for you.
Thank you so much. Send some warmth and sunshine.
Happy Anniversary eh! The snow in my part Alberta is hip deep 😦 Feel free to post a wedding day picture of your two love birds 😉
