Welcome to our farmhouse…life is good!

Monday, April 23

it's the most wonderful time of the year...

As I sit down to write this, the sun is shining and when the clouds part, the skies are a robin's egg blue...but don't let that lead you to believe it's a lovely spring day here in the Midwest.

I'm in a turtleneck and sweatshirt on this happy Monday and the kids wore their winter coats to school. The winds from the north are strong and cold. Had this been a couple of months ago, I dare say we'd be in the middle of a blizzard.

And so, for me at least, it's a day for indoor chores. However; the farmers are hard at work outdoors today, so I thought I'd share a peek at what we see all around us...

So, as I sit bundled up, I'm grateful we're not snowed in like some folks are. I can promise though, that we'll be keeping warm with a kettle of simmering soup on the menu, along with mugs of creamy cocoa!

Happy Monday to all!


  1. We are getting rain in Nova Scotia. We need it as well. The farmers here are worried. We had very little snow this winter. What snow came, melted as quick as it came down. There was so spring thaw, and nothing to melt to water the grounds. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Lovely photos ! Yes the temps have turned wintery here as well , windy and cold but thankfully no snow ! I to am indoors today where it is nice and cozy as the it is cloudy , windy and cold . Hope it warms up soon for both of us. Have a good day !

  3. Our fields look a lot like yours. The farmers are tilling the soil. Our weather has finally turned warmer while so many others weather has turned cold. Hope you can warm up a little bit in the next few days.
