From The Farm Friday : n u m b e r 17

I had some really good content for this weeks From the Farm but then life happened and sitting at my computer after work last night did not happen. And I could have sat up until 1-2am writing however I am really trying to create better sleeping habits and forgo my night owl mentality. {also I needed to catch up on downton so don't judge}
Let's just say since last weeks one baby calf we have added 15+. I can't keep up because they just keep coming!! We are quite a ways away from our hopeful ending total of 200+ but this is a wonderful start.

Follow along on Instagram for daily updates on life and farm activities

Next week you will get double the info and tons of baby calf photos - promise!!

I don't often participate in those email chains that go around "replace my name with yours and Bcc to 500 friends ..." you get the point. But this time I did because it is the start of a new year and I always love inspirational quotes!!

The following are the lovely bits I got from people who chose to participate

// The secret of being happy is accepting where you are in life and making the most of every day ::from Shirley

// TELL ME and i forget TEACH ME and i remember INVOLVE ME and i learn ::from SG
// Choose a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life - Confucius ::from SG
// Faith it does not make things easy, it makes them Possible - Luke 1:37 ::from SG
// Every scar I have makes me who I am ::from SG

// Be Strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go - Joshua 1:9 ::from Chanelle

// Don't worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need & thank Him for all He has done - Philippians 4:6 ::from Sable

// Bloom where God plants you ::from Crystal

I want to thank these ladies for their inspiration and hope it has brightened your day!!

Now get out there and inspire someone else - inspire them by your words or even better by your actions.

From The Farm Friday : n u m b e r 16

With Monday off from work that week seemed to fly by - and of course seemed more hectic because we lost a day!

Farm life, GSD,

Steve attended a few planting and marketing meetings this week; Winter is the time for seminars because most farmers have down time especially if they don't raise livestock.

We do raise livestock, purebred Black Angus cattle to be specific and this past Wednesday we had our first baby - a little heifer calf and she is doing great!!

This weekend we will be enjoying a little heat wave of 20+ weather and I can't wait!!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend wherever you may be!

From The Farm Friday : n u m b e r 15

Welcome back to From the Farm Friday, a weekly linkup giving a recap of what has been going on around the farm.

farm, snow, farmwife, farm life

If you follow along on Instagram you saw in December we brought all the cows home from pasture and now we are getting ready for the babies to start hitting the ground.
On Sunday the guys had to pull a stillborn babe, praying that is our only casualty of 2016!!

While we have been really fortunate on a mild winter with snowfall & with temps this past week it was -15 a few days and up to -20 with the wind chill. Hopefully that is the coldest we get and Spring is closer than we think.
Until then we will snuggle by the fire and wear our long underwear!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend - my mom and I are off to help my baby sister find A WEDDING DRESS!!!

Tea with Mrs. Laura B

Friends - Hello and Happy 2016
I can't wait to catch up on life over a cup of something hot!!

// If we were having Tea I would be drinking Hot Cinnamon Spice from Harney & Sons (with thieves and lemon YL essential oil) - this is my all time favorite and could drink it all year long but it is even better this time of year! What would you be drinking, coffee or tea??

// If we were having Tea I hope we are inside by a toasty fire because the weather in North Dakota has been brutal the past few days!!

// If we were having Tea I would want to talk about Making a Murder and Serial and Crime Writers On and Magic Lessons and all the things I have been binging on as of late - are you addicted to any of these things too?!

// If we were having Tea we would talk about you - how the heck are you, what is going on in your life??

// If we were having Tea there is no doubt Ember would come up in conversation. She is doing so great, is completely spoiled and is our little spitfire!

// If we were having Tea I would tell you that From The Farm Friday is coming back this week, so if you are in the Ag Industry I hope you will link up with me on the 15th and tell me and your readers what is going on with your farm/ranch

// If we were having Tea I would tell you I'm excited and nervous to be hosting an IF:Local gathering at my home on February 5 & 6 - If you have found Jesus or want to I really would love to have you over!! 

I want to thank you for this little date and I hope we can do it again very soon. May you finish out the week on a high note that continues through the weekend!! xo

I followed Amber's Coffee Date Format for this post
