Are we having fun in quarentine yet? As an introvert and a person who enjoys being home, this is even getting to be a little much for me. Being farm people we are able to get out and do things, the guys more than me, be feeding time is more enjoyable now.

The guys have started fertilizing at Gramma and Grampa’s, keeps the boy from getting too stir crazy. We would hate to have to work on school work…

The weather has warmed up and the few rainy days we had have passed, so getting outside and doing a little picking up around the place…another nice thing about being out in the country, our nearest neighbor is half-a-mile as the crow flies…so it’s just me and the dogs.

Being one who doesn’t get too worked up about these type of things, haven’t been worrying, but have been being cautious…watching how things develop. We are thankfully in an area of the country where we are having cases of the virus but not many, less than 10 in our county and less than 10 in the county to the south of us…haven’t heard on the other surrounding counties. Think it may give some of us a false sense of being able to get out more than we should.

I try to continue to look at things on the “glass half full” side…at least at this point. It is a scary time, but I continue to pray…what else to do but look to the Lord for guidance and comfort.

Until Again,

True Story….Do You Believe?

Ruby and I went to the folks yesterday afternoon for a weekly weekend visit….dad told me this amazing story and it just hit me that I had to share it…true story…

Ol’ Bob passed away, gosh, can’t recall at the moment whether it was spring or summer…pry should have asked dad…anyway….Bob passed away while fixing fence…he was round about 90 give or take a year or so…good old guy.

When the ambulance folk came to take Bob away~a young calf came over and laid down in the same spot Bob was just removed. That alone touched my heart.

Dad was in town days ago and learned that recently Bob’s wife (who had been a school teacher of my 76 year old dad) and family had loaded up the herd to sell…guess who was never found? That calf…nowhere to be found. Those are the times that remind me, that to me, God is real….

Much Love and Happy Sunday….
