Last Week

Walk into a nursing home with three pretty, dressed up girls and you'll feel like a celebrity.

There was shouting and hooting and hollering.

A resident was sitting in the front lounge and she needed to talk to Lydia.....of course Lydia wasn't so sure about it.

But I reassured her...and we spoke to the woman....and she was overjoyed.

"You make me so happy."...that's what she kept saying.

We chatted for a few minutes and I realized that we had a lot in common...she was also once a farmer's wife.  She was super excited when we told her that we were here for the birthday party.  The girls were going to fiddle and dance.

And eat cake.

I love taking my children to these kinds of events.  You just need to show up and you feel loved.

That was on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, we went with a 4-H group on a farm tour of McGregor's Produce just outside of Renfrew.

And the raspberries were ripe....and so so good!

On Thursday, we hosted a 4-H Sheep meeting at our place.

And Lydia finished up her T-ball season.

And sunbeams came out of the clouds just before sunset.

And the boys worked at the hay.  I guess I need to take some pictures of them.

And I made 21 pies.

That sums up last week.



  1. Hi Brenda
    Just going through the blogs I read and found pictures of my own farm on your blog. How nice! I wanted to be home for that meeting but I work at the Pembroke Farmers Market on Wednesdays. Thanks for sharing and have a great day. I love your blog!


    1. Hi Deb
      Your farm is beautiful! Your husband gave us an excellent tour. I learned a lot...and so did the kids! It's too bad that we didn't get to meet each other. I'll have to let you know the next time that I'm coming to pick!


I would love to hear from you! Let me know if you enjoyed this post and please share it with a friend.
