About Me

I'm a mother of four grandmother of seven and great grandmother of three. I live with my husband in the house that we built with the help of my brothers and will have been married for 57 years this February.

Today has been a busy day at the farm, moving heifers out from the barn to the next building in the back. For me, it means that my work load will be less for a while at the barn. It means less to feed everyday. The hoof trimmer is coming tomorrow and again, it will be a busy day.

I've been on the computer in small snippets  today checking blog and emails whenever I got a chance.  I commented on Farm Girl's blog about God abundant blessings in our trials and when I commented on  Melaine's blog from Woolly Hooker, as I was to post my comment, the word bless showed up on the word verification box. It has been a blessed day.

I thought that I would follow through with pictures of the retreat.

On the first day there were some door prizes for the early birds and on Saturday there were over a hundred prizes to be won and it took quite a while for the draw. Carol is one of the many winners. The place was so big that I only got some of the winners who were closer to me.
Wendy, another enthusiastic winner with her camera rolling as she fetch her prize.

Another happy winner

Susn won a gift certificate.

Linda won some colorful roving. I love her button necklace and earrings.

Joyce won a beautiful figurine. Blogger won't let me write below this picture so I'll call it quite for tonight. I just remember a lot and lot of smiling faces. I only got a fraction of what people were working on as I didn't had my camera with me all the time. I was trying to get some hooking done.
Thanks for stopping by.  JB
