around the farm

So, yeah, I live in rural Kentucky. You all already know that. What you may not know is I live in the middle of a Mennonite/Amish community (but we are not mennonite, catholic actually). We're in farm country. I work at an organic garden place, and we also have a small farm for ourselves. It's not too much to speak of, being only a few acres, but it's still a farm. Daddy built our house, and the cabin where Grandma lives. He also put up a big rope swing in our woods, which is the pride of the place...where all the company goes. 

We've got a cow, some chickens, couple goats, dog, cats, and gardens. The month started out with cold and bits of snow, and now? It's 70 degrees out. Preparing me for Africa! Cannot wait. 

So here's a little post of recent "farm" pictures. And there may or may not be some adorable brand new goats...
Brand new! Less than 24 hours old here is Miss Fuzzy.
Miss Floppy is the twin. She had a rough start, and we wondered if she'd live. But the strong kid she is  doing great now! (after pampering and a couple nights in the house.)
Yep. Beautiful Spring days now. Daffodils blooming, windows open, hair blowing, hands digging in the dirt again, and bare feet. I love it.
Around here you find the Ambulance in the garden, to the rescue of dying plants maybe


And that, my friends, is a little peek into our corner of the world.
