At Least He Hasn’t Taken It Off Yet

Apr
25


This bull is too clever for his britches. He’s gotten so adept at life with a weaner that he can deftly swing it back up toward his nose, get up under Glory Bee, and STILL STEAL MILK.

Since I’m not in a position to separate them at the moment, nor do I want to separate them (he has a job to do), I guess I’m putting up with it for the time being. At least he hasn’t taken it off yet (Glory Bee didn’t put up with it this long when she wore it years ago trying to keep her off mama BP!), and it does seem to be slowing down his milk consumption somewhat.

Since I don’t have any other ideas, we’re in detente pending a preg check on Glory Bee, because this bull needs to head down the road as soon as he’s completed his task–which isn’t milking!

Favorites for Mother’s Day

Apr
25

People are ten times more likely to send scones to women and biscuits to men, did you know that? I pick up on lots of almost useless information like that from my Etsy shop. But–Mother’s Day is nearly here! Looking for ideas? I’ve got ideas! In fact, I’ve got SCONES, and we know women love scones!

I’ve got scones in nearly every flavor imaginable. I’ve got cranberry orange pecan scones, blueberry lemon scones, cinnamon pecan scones, apple peanut butter scones, and cherry almond scones. I’ve got roasted garlic and beer cheddar and jalapeno scones, too, if you want something on the savory side, or if just want something off the beaten path but still sweet, how about peanut butter chocolate scones or pineapple coconut scones or even ambrosia scones? If you want a kind of scones I don’t have listed, ask me, I can probably make it. See all of my scones here.

Even better, I have monthly club subscriptions for scone of the month clubs in three month or six month periods.

I also have biscuit clubs, cookie clubs, fudge clubs, and muffin clubs. If you can’t make up your mind, I have treat clubs where you can choose combinations of scones, muffins, biscuits, fudge, and cookies. (Women love muffins, too, by the way–muffins are right up there with scones as one of the most popular gifts for women.) See all of my gift clubs and other gift ideas here.

Whether you’re making a one-time purchase as a gift, or a club subscription, I do lovely gift letters (free) on my shop stationary, so be sure to include a gift message if you’d like one. See everything in my Etsy shop here!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
