Practicing Medicine Without a License

When Grampa brought these two little ones in yesterday morning they were almost dead. They had gotten separated from their parents during a bad rain storm and were covered with mud and cold. I put them in a warm water bath till they warmed up a bit. Then we blow dried them and put them in this box on top of a heating pad. Within a few hours they were just fine and back with their parents.

Growing up a city girl, I had the impression that farmers weren't real smart people. Nothing could be further from the truth. A good farmer must have and extensive knowledge of medicine as well as genetics, accounting, mechanics, construction, nutrition and a host of other subjects. Grampa may not read Shakespeare, but he is one of the smartest people I know!

God Bless You all!

What I Did on the 4th of July

After sleeping in to a luxurious 7:30am, I headed for the computer and worked on my latest spiritual endeavor: inserting the meanings of the names in the Bible into the text. This project will probably take the rest of my life unless other people step up to help, but it has been a desire of mine for several years and this week, I decided I'd better get busy with it. If you'd like to check it out, I'm blogging it. http://thenametranslationbible.blogspot.com/

Around 9:30 or so I cooked a big breakfast for Grampa and I as we watched a John Wayne movie. I washed the dishes  and made up some noodle dough.  I had some dried herbs I needed to put in jars, so I did that. Then Grampa brought me a bucket of eggs to wash. I was just about to start working on the noodles when Grampa came in to ask if I could help him a mulch and put cages on all of the tomatoes.

By the time we were done, it was time to gather and wash eggs again, so I did that and packed 24 dozen eggs to take to Quincy tomorrow. I'm doing a promotion at the Broadway Hy-Vee from 10am -2pm. Come see me!

Finally I was able to get busy with noodles. I rolled noodles for about 3 hours, filling every available screen, cookie sheet and tray in the house and I still had to leave some on the counter! I'm going back to work for the Census this week so I'm trying to stock up.

We just got done with supper. It's almost 10pm, 'bout par for this time of year! I'm gonna go jump in the shower and lay my head down real soon!

We've decided our garden needs a rest and so do we, so we aren't going to open up on the farm tomorrow night. I'll probably wind up spending the evening making noodles anyway! Hope you had a good 4th! I did. I spent it doing all the things I love to do! It's an awesome way to live!

God Bless You All!
