Rain, Rain, Rain and More Rain! Week 42 2018

When it rains it pours… quite literally and figuratively! It was one of THOSE days on the homestead!

Well, you’ll have to watch..

A Calf That Misses His Milk, A Long Day of Cooking, It Was a Week Full of Silliness! Week 32

Just a morning filled with chores and animal silliness!
