Not to far from here live a vera vera nice family who have a little farm. I thought a nice ride to the country would do me a world of good. They said,"Come on!"
This sweet jersey milk cow provides enough milk and rich cream for about 8 families. I get some too.
You probably can't tell but she has a bum foot, nothing can be done to fix it and it doesn't seem to bother her. The foot however inspired her name,
Inside the buggy is a little baby dumplin.
Are your lips puckering up?
They should be because she is adorable.
What was I thinkin not to get some close ups of her toes?
Shame on me, next time.
Just teasin it's humongous!
Maybe I have missed my calling.
I need to be a farmer and go sell at the market.
Flowers and bread.
They don't allow any more home canning which is just plain stupid. You mean to really believe that a factory is cleaner than my house?
I ain't thinkin so.
A box of tomatoes.
More cream and milk.
Tomorrow I am going to make butter out of the cream. You have never lived until you taste it.
We had a good time. I munched on the baby and kissed all her little fat pudgy luvin spots. She is ADORABLE. I think the cure to any sadness is baby sugars. All the kids are so sweet an so well behaved they are a pleasure to be around. They shared lunch we ate sandwiches with tomatoes of course, and home made pickles, home made blueberry jelly, and watermelon. We got stuffed. Her son prayed the sweetest prayer before lunch and thanked God for providing all the wonderful food that grows and for me coming to visit. Awh*sigh* love tank filling up.
It was a great afternoon.
Topped off with a sinful sweet. Banana blueberry pudding. Just toss in a few blueberries when you make yours. As you can see, I am definitely not on a diet at the moment. Well I guess I am, it's a
See it and eat it.
Yeah that was bad.
But I'm adjusting to my new life of empty nest, so I am allowed a stupid joke or two, don't you think?
What are you doing this weekend?
I am making salsa, bread, and butter.
