I must apologize for taking so long to refresh this blog...but the work had to be done. At this point, I will begin daily journalling of farm stories....starting with the decoration of the farmhouse.
To start, I will share a picture with you of our farm table. We had a local Mennonite family make it special for us. They told us it was the biggest table they had ever made. It measures 6 ft. by 8 ft at its smallest and with extra board expands to 12 foot in length...perfect for those big family get-togethers! It is hand planed and rather rustic....perfect for a log cabin.We came up with the idea of making the table so wide after this past holiday season. For our holiday meals we had pushed two tables together side by side instead of the usual end to end. This enabled everyone to see everyone else better and conversation remained centralized...with everyone being able to participate.
We even had the chance to use our table this weekend as a couple of our kids were home to help us move.
