It is hard to believe it will soon be Christmas ! This was our first full year without the dairy cows . We still have a few heifers , some larger calves and five small calves. So there is still barn work to be done. My husband has adjusted to working full time for the township. He doesn't look too good right now ( I will put a pic of his f ace on here ) . Last weekend he fell down out outside cellar steps. He was carrying a log of wood and lost his footing and fell down 5 stone steps onto the concrete and dirt floor. The log he was carrying hit his face when he fell. We took him to the ER and they did X rays . Luckily nothing was broken. He just has some black and blue marks. Also a doozy of a black eye and scraped up face. This happened Saturday night and he was back hunting on Monday .I have been busy with my crafts for the holidays. I had our Craft Open House in November. It was our 20th Year ! It went very well. We also did a Craft Show at the Eagle Valley Personal Care Home in Milesburg and had a very good turn out. Now I am busy trying to get my shopping all done.
I think we have adjusted to our life without the dairy cows . People still ask us if we miss it. Most times we say no. We don't miss the stress of worrying about paying bills and how are we going to fill the tractors with gas.We still have lots of farmer friends and many have bought heifers, corn and hay from us.My husband always gives them a break on the price they pay. He tells them he knows what they are going through. Especially if the milk prices are down. A lot of people would not do that. They wouldn't care a bit whether the farmer could afford the prices or not. But that is just the kind of person my husband is. He is a caring person and always tries to help other people .
I hope everyone has a safe and Merry Christmas !
