Pretty Happy Funny Real

How long has it been since my last post? Well, no matter. I’m here now. Anyway, I did warn you. šŸ™‚

Evie Makes Faces
Pretty, happy, and funny: Evie celebrated her six week birthday yesterday, and I tried to get a picture of her smile for you, but all I got was wiggles, grunts, and an aborted attempt at protest. Still, she’s a cutie.
Real: She weighs in at nearly twelve and a half pounds! She won’t even consider going more than 90 minutes without a meal, except at night. At night, I have to wake her up.


Pretty: Our broccoli and Brussels sprouts starts, all beaded with rain.
Real: They’re still not in the ground. It’s been a combination of unpredictable weather swings, a new baby, and chickens escaping into the garden area, but I’m committed to planting them today, before our next round of rain comes in tonight!


Happy and funny: For some reason, Tommy got it into his head that muddy rain puddles and fire trucks are obvious mates! He enjoyed himself for a good long time, though.
Real: We got about five inches of rain in the past week. Our farm is muck, muck, muck. Nobody cares to venture out back of the barn, not even the cows. I apologize for making them walk through it every morning. Our Ohio River is running pretty high, too.


Happy and real: We are no longer in the rabbit business! And you can be grateful I didn’t show you the photos of Dave and Laney making them into meat. Some of them were quite good!

About Jennie Cooper

I'm the mother of eight children, the wife of a retired soldier, and a newly minted farmer. I spend my days fairly productively, home educating our children, raising large quantities of food for several families, and volunteering in our community. I read entire novels a page at a time in the comfort of my bathroom. I tell people I'm Catholic just because they find it so shocking. I think there's nothing so exciting as a thunderstorm coming in. It doesn't bother me at all that my dog barks outside my bedroom window all night. And I rather enjoy being 40. I didn't think I would, but 40 is pretty good.

    I have high hopes of getting some planting done, myself. I have been reading about becoming a National Wildlife Federation certified wildlife backyard, and I really want to plant some native bushes and things along the perimeter of the yard. Still doing some research about what would work best in our shady spots šŸ™‚

    I’m always so happy when you post pictures. Everyone looks healthy and happy!
