First Day of Spring...

Welcome First Day Of Spring!
I was able to get out and find a few promises that it's going to green up.

Hello, Baby Wheat!
We recently had a little rain and our wheat is loving it.  Always have loved this green...pure and true.

Now don't you just love these???  Remember the sweet nectar and promise of summer ahead?   Handsome Man calls them, "Weeds."  I say, "Sweet!"
And rather pretty, too.  I always thought they were the first flowers.

These made me want to touch them...

Well, the tree isn't quite ready...

Hope you've had a beautiful spring day!
And I hope you were able to get outside and enjoy the day!  

Loved it even with the Wind!

Purest White

Hello, Friend.
With all the beautiful colors of Fall surrounding us this white rose captured my attention...I love it's simple beauty.
I love the drives and sometimes just have to pull over to soak in all the colors.  Even knowing this is an end to a beginning of nature's rest- I love all the rich colors that demand our attention.  Nature's Glory!  Happy Colors!

To think all of our splendid colors begin with the purest of white.  

May your day be filled with happy colors!

Busy Day!

It's been a busy day at Bolay Farms.  As we were getting ready for church this morning~Handsome Man noticed that another Momma Cow was close to having her baby calf.  We figured that she would be done while we were at church and we would come home to a new calf.

However, I did "have" to ask the infamous question, "Have you ever had to pull a calf?"  He replied, "Yes, I have and now let's get on the road for church."  I'm still checking on her as we are leaving.  (I mean~I've been there before myself and know!)

We returned home following a great worship and time of fellowship with our church family - to find her still working on her important job.  Handsome Man decides it's time to check on her.  You got it~she was in need of assistance.  He tried to help her there (in the pasture) but she wouldn't have that, she got up and turned to give him the eye.  "I'm a little busy here!"  So to the barn we go...

I loved it~Handsome Man was so gentle walking her up to the barn.  I really love this guy!

Got her in the chute and time to pull!
I would say, "Ouch!"  She looked relieved!  Isn't it cute!!!!
First look ~
He lets them rest -
I think he deserves a treat -
She does too!
His favorite and it's not even his birthday!

After a nice rest -
It's time for some milk time.
Handsome Man helps some...(it has been quite a day).
Now it's Momma's turn~

Lovin' Summer & Cow Time!

Tuesday Readers

I belong to a Book Club.

There are some pretty amazing women in our group.  I love them all and really have fun sharing time with them!  Today, we met at a farmhouse and were treated to a delicious Brunch in the country.  This lady is a definite made from scratch woman.
Yes~we discussed a book... But, food first!
Breakfast Pizza (recipe from an old church cookbook), fruit, bubble bread and Coconut Cream pie~amazing!

You can tell we loved it all!

The book:

This fictional story touched my heart~a David versus Goliath sort of story.  I love cheering for the underdog!  

The title is based on an old Native American legend.  

Willow Creek, Montana, small town, USA, where everyone has a story.   There are a few "characters" and I mean that "literally" that you will love.  Each one with their own distinct personality and challenge to overcome.  (I know-hokie...but it's true and believable).  Settle in and get ready to become involved in the story.

Now...there are a few basketball games in this storyline.  Just in case March Madness was over too soon for you.
Those last seconds last forever!

We all agreed that it would make a great movie!  

A real feel good read,
Let me know what you thought of it!

Rainy day...

This might not be Handsome Man's favorite kind of day~since he is still...cutting wheat.  But for me it's been a good morning (since I'm still missing those sweet boys that stole my heart.)
This is how today started...
Handsome Man met sticky roads on his way to service the combine.

Notice he is not smiling...

But... For me it's a perfect baking day (since I'm not getting Nana time.)
Grandma's Rolls, custard for Dad's Homemade Ice-Cream~Handsome Man has taken this over and does a great job.
I really love this guy!

I might even get a little sewing time in...
Ummmmmmmm Hmmmmmmm ☔
Hope you're having a good one!

My kind of day,
