This is the rocking chair at the old farmhouse where I spent many hours dreaming about how I wanted my life to be–which turned into the life I have now. Today is my birthday, and because I’m the boss of me (and a nice one!), I’m giving myself the day off regular posting. (I give my kids the day off school on their birthdays, too.) However! I want to share a few of my favorite things that were just a twinkle in my eye back when I was dreaming in that rocking chair.
The Giant Puppy, finally daring the porch steps.
Clover, foiling my milking plans for the one hundred and fifty-third time.
Rams, preparing to debut on the ballet stage.
The sweetness of my first baby chicks.
A very, very good day to remember.
And one last favorite:
Read: This Post Is Stunning.
May your day be stunning today!
Due to a scheduling change, the West Virginia Public Radio piece about Chickens in the Road which was broadcast on WV Morning on March 31 didn’t run on Inside Appalachia last weekend but it will run this weekend. So if you missed it on WV Morning, you can hear it today (Saturday) at 6 am or tomorrow (Sunday) at 6 pm! You can also listen to the interview online here at the West Virginia Public Radio website.
P.S. I’d totally be wearing a tiara today but….
….CLOVER WON’T GIVE IT BACK.
