Peace out, 2018!

Farm Wife Fail

Farm Wife Fail

Good morning and Happy Monday!! Do the words 'Happy' and 'Monday' go together for you? Or is it the opposite? I think Monday's get a pretty bad rap, but I'll admit today has been a doozy so far. My Farmer left last week, in the middle of a blizzard, to head down south to go [...]
