Jessie answers your questions

I hope you all had a joyous Christmas and were able to stay warm and comfy. : ) We had a mostly quiet weekend. We dealt with the cold like everyone else, with a few frozen lines and some equipment that wouldn’t start and fun stuff like that. We didn’t lose any animals, even the […]

A Christmas Eve Devotion

I’ll be back on Tuesday with answers to some of your questions and hopefully a farm story. And maybe a picture – we had the most adorable heifer calf born Thursday just before it dumped two inches of rain and a day before the wind gusted all day and the temperatures dropped to single digits…she’s […]

A little Christmas season update…

Okay, little story about how my Christmas season is going.  Wednesday my dad had a procedure to remove a pre-cancerous growth from his head. Apparently he couldn’t get the bleeding stopped and it bled all night. So, you know, we have a thing about hospitals in my family, I guess, because it wasn’t until yesterday […]

Mischief at the poles…

The election is long over, but I thought I’d put a story in I told about my boys a couple years ago. I’ve mentioned before that I talk politics with my kids. We have lively, friendly discussions, and I love that they can back up their opinions and beliefs with facts and common sense. Last […]

When you’re here, you’re family.

I don’t know if you all remember this summer where I struggled some – I was pretty much unable to do much of anything – just breathing was exhausting. I’d walk down the stairs, then lie down on the hall floor to catch my breath.  That’s how I was feeling when I wrote this book.  […]

Jessie gets lost.

I hope you all have been having a great week.  It’s been a busy week for me. I was driving home from PA yesterday and it was a little foggy. When I drive, I have a tendency to not pay attention to things because I start thinking about stuff and forget that I’m driving. I’ve […]

Get you a Julia!

I hope everyone is having a great December.  Julia said to me over the weekend, “I feel like we keep getting hit by a wrecking ball, like, every day it’s something.”  And I laughed and said, “Yeah, it’s been a hard fall.”  She grunted and said, “It’s been a hard year!” Ha. But, Monday morning I […]

Jessie is a snack.

Okay, so I don’t really have a farm story for you today, but I read an interesting article online. Now, I can’t watch horror movies. I watched one when I was in high school and I think I looked under my bed and in my closet every night until I turned 35 or so. I’m […]
