Sunday, Sunny Sunday (and Saturday too!)
The week started with warmer than usual weather and lots of sunshine. Our initial plan was for Tammy to try to get school work done early during break so it wouldn't be weighing on her during the rest of the time she had "off." But, one look at the forecast and we were sold on revising that plan. The only downside? It was a bit windy.

Perhaps some of you have read here or elsewhere that we are trying to fix the kitchen in our old farmhouse. (Imagine that! The farmers live in a farmhouse! Who woulda thunk it?) Anyone who has done this sort of work while living in the house knows what that means. And, if you don't know, I'll tell you. It means you have to find ways to move your kitchen around in stages so you can go about your normal daily business. That was a good bit of Tuesday. And now you know.
Wednesday we became the 'Traveling Farmers' as we ran errands all over northeast Iowa. While some of the errands might make us sound normal (going to the bank, the pharmacy, recycling, dropping some neat things at Trinkets and Togs, etc) there were others that clearly identified us as 'different.' A trip to Nolt's to pick up drip tape, plant starting soil and other supplies made sure to make the trip up with Chumley, our truck, worthwhile. But, perhaps the most disturbing thing about Wednesday is that we left the farm after chores at about 6:20 am and we returned about 12 hours later. Look, when errands take you to places near Waverly, Charles City, Protivin and Sumner, there's going to be some serious road time.

Tomorrow's big task? Lots and LOTS of seeding! Hang on to your hats kids, this is going to be fun!
Just keep your eyes open for clouds that look like a cow.
