In the early morning the clouds look like mountains

I like it

Wild Turkey

On our way to church a week ago we saw 6 wild turkeys
only one was not blurry in the picture

Combine weather

The combines are rolling
the pigeons are flying and
the cows are grazing
what a beautiful evening

New crop

We have been eating them already for a while
this time the whole row got dug up
they are big and not hollow

Cow picture

This morning was an important day for our Amazing cow Laura

She wasn't milked for about 20 hours,
so her udder looks picture perfect

Top line grooming

Feet in the right position

This is it
On the computer she will get a different tail and a different background
but other then that it should be like this pic

Nail hammering

Cow milking

No Frieda is not trying to dunk her daughter

Coming Tuesday they will picture one of our cows
she already got a haircut


Preserving cherries for later
makes me think of my oma.
Cherries were her favourite and she had a big Cherry tree
in her garden.

Proverbs 10:
He who
gathers crops in summer is a wise son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.

We have lots of rain and high temperatures
The corn is high and there is water in the fields
This is a field up the road from us

Sunday School

I had such an easy class only the girls showed up
all the boys had ended up in the other class
thanks JR
We did the story of the house on the rock and the house on the sand

In the evening there was lots of sheet lightning
I would like to take good picture from a lightning zigzag line

Listowel Dairy 4H

Marc showed his calf Alpha in Listowel

Last instructions and a look at his clothes

He was second in showmanship, out of 5

Beside us they were getting ready for the horse show
I think it looks funny, the bows on the tails

Nice Grass

I took this picture from the campfire to the road on Friday
towards sundown

Tuesday, July 13, 2010


Our cows have been able to go outside for 3 straight days
They don't visit the robot as often as we like during the night .
A bit of rain at around 4AM would be appreciated

I was ready to take a picture of everyone cheering

but it wasn't meant to be
even the flag looks sad
