Arrivederci Friends

Well, the day is finally here.
I succeeded in slowing time down for the last two weeks...
I've been so excited.

The feed bins are filled....with extra feed in storage.
Hay is stacked.
The pantry and refrigerator are stocked.

Everything is ready for a small army of house sitters and care givers
 to survive over the next two weeks.

Yes....TWO weeks!!
It's an awful long time to be away...
but necessary in order to see all that we wish to see.

Oh, how I will miss my friends...
the four legged...

and two...

I will also miss visiting with you each day.
You are a big part of my day.
My peeps.
So many of you have become "friends."
So many of you I wish were closer so that we could have tea together in the morning,
and a glass of wine in the afternoon....
or borrow a cup of sugar from each other!

Here's the deal.
I am taking you along with me... in my heart.
I will take lots of photos and share our adventures with you as soon as we are home.

We will be back in October.
I'll have so much to share with you...
you might have to tell me to stop!!!

Until then, dear friend....
be well, be happy, stay positive...
and share as much love as possible!

Mwaaaaaahhhhh!  (Hugs and kisses from your farm family!)

Hope everything is fantastic for you and your husband and can't wait for all the stories on your return. Take care and have a ball!! Kind regards, Louise S, Cheshire UK.

  6. Oh this is so exciting. Wonderful that you are getting away on a holiday and an adventure. It is so hard to leave..(been there done but it is ok once you get on the plane. The work involved in leaving our farm friends is more than most can understand. By the time you leave you really do need a
