I hopped in my car early yesterday morning. My daughter Caroline had borrowed my car the day before, and left her music behind.

This is the season of celebration, and we are enjoying every minute of it. With high school graduation ceremonies behind us, we focused on hosting a party here to mark the occasion for our son and our daughter.

Remember the trepidation of having to climb up the ladder to the dark hay mow very early in the morning after having stayed up late watching a scary movie the night before? It's been years and years ago, but I still feel that tingling in the toes and chills up my spine just thinking about it! Scary story.

Life is made up of a million and one ordinary days, but into this mix are sprinkled some truly momentous moments, usually spread out with wonderful harmony and the balance of time.

Traveling newsman Charles Kuralt once described the farmers of this nation as one of the most stubborn breeds of man alive, and I have never forgotten it.

A friend recently sent me a clipping about the history of aprons, stating that most of our children wouldn't even know what an apron is! A dear aunt.

There are four sayings that I keep close at hand at all times.

Have you heard the story of the bird feeder? A friend sent this analogy to me and I thought Farm and Dairy readers might enjoy it.

A good day became a great day with the sighting of a vibrant pair of blue birds, searching and finding a suitable home here on our farm.

The above quote has circulated for several years now, and each time I read it, I feel, once again, it serves as a great reminder to us to live each day as though it could be our last.
