Five Years

Happy five years — to me! Yes, five years ago I created a wordpress site and wrote my first post here on Cow Spots and Tales. 

My blogiversary also means it’s the birthday of our blog cow, Henrietta. She turns four today, and she’s busy enjoying the mild autumn weather.

She’s also busy growing a baby who is due in November! It’s hard to believe how quickly she grew from a tiny calf herself to cow about to have her third baby. 

It has been a busy September so far on the farm as we finished making grass meadow hay, chopped our corn silage, and continued on with all the daily work of the dairy. We’ve also been trying to make use of the abundance our garden is still producing.

School has started again so I’m back to teaching my Wednesday afternoon class at church too. I have several blog posts about harvest and fall in the works, and I hope to get them up soon now that the craziness of silage is finished.

In the meantime, I had to stop in today and acknowledge five years. I’m so grateful for all the support, comments, and time readers have spent here over this half decade. I wish you a lovely September weekend, and thanks for stopping in.
