Best birthday present

I am not the only farm wife in the world that wishes she simply had more time to spend with her husband. I get it, though — I know that when your passion is your job, there are never enough hours in the day.
But not today. Joe came to a work-out with me!

Joe joined me for a class offered by our local YMCA that combines yoga and weights. It's pretty sweaty.
We LOVE our local Y…Joe is on the board of directors. They offer free child-care so parents can work-out! And the pool is both indoor and outdoors, which is as good as it gets in the summer time with 4 children of all ages and stages. I am not the type of person that MUST work-out to feel normal, but I love to! Also, the programs offered to the kids are great so my car can pretty much auto-pilot there.
Right now, Violet is napping. Liv and Ava are outside painting their nails. Vince and Joe are recycling some old light fixtures and doing some office work. I am about to try to weed that jungle that is my garden.
Life is good. 37 years young and hopefully many more years as a farmer's wife!

  1. Daughter Rita Marie, you make me so proud of who you have become and who you are. Have a very happy wonderful birthday that you deserve.


  2. Happy birthday! Farming is a full time job no matter whether you r male or female! I understand! Now that we r older we have more time together, but the farmer is still thinking crops, tillage, or anything farm related while the farm wife is trying to find recipes to try on her ‘men’ during the busy season. It’s a great place to raise a family and I wouldn’t change a thing and you wouldn’t either! Enjoy your birthday all week! And wish you many more!
