That is a bit of Farmgirl Romance I would love to wake up and experience! I’m claiming the tent with Grandmother’s old stove. Coffee would be a must have in these circumstances. LOL!! I bet even Jasper might consider staying for a sleep over.
G-ma’s cook stove, mid-morning sunshine, third cup of coffee perky from a percolator and pitcher of cream. Close your eyes and you’re there! (I mean, here.) Good morning dear Winnie.
MMmmmm, I can taste that sweet thick cream from maybe Daisy and feel the warm sunshine on my face while I am bundled up in a quilt while sitting on the tent porch. Coffee is awesome when you are outdoors and it is freezing cold! Maybe you will have a chance to stop by between cow chores for a bit of warm up. Me? I am working on my newest book “Vintage Knitting: Patterns from the 1940s” and dreaming what I might be skilled enough to try next. They have the coolest Everyday Underwear patterns. “It is sensible, warm, yet well fitting and trim.” Basically it is a camisole and boy shorts set. So darn cute!! They also feature the cinch head band cap similar to what I made for you and Carol. “The turban is fashion’s last word in streamlined smartness and this two-colored design is a reply to fashion’s last word.” Are you enjoying your Knit for victory woolies yet?
Right now I’m getting 6 to 7 gallons of milk per day and yes, Miss Daisy is one of the bovine beauties who greets me every a.m. That’s an abundance of cream even though Ashley and I make whole milk cheeses. Did I say, CREAM FOR COFFEE? Outdoor camp coffee is the very best. Your new book sounds fabulous. The head cinch has been my friend with our recent cold snap in addition to ear muffs on top of the head band wrapping around the back of my head (only my cows see me). My sockies are too special for everyday outside wear. They are for cozy, comfy evening wear. I just started reading Go Set a Watchman. I think you’d like it. It was Good Reads pick of the year.
That’s my Girl, Daisy! She was too pregnant, last I saw her, to tell about how having this next youngin’ was going to produce some GradeAAA milk and cream for coffee!
I’ll look into getting Go Set a Watchman along with the the Emotional calendar today. They sound wonderful!!
Guess what chicken butt? Carol showed up for work with your headband on. She looks adorable in it.
What a beautiful shot of snow bliss. Looks so pretty with the lace across the top. You’ve created your own Pinterest for us. Thanks Mary Jane.
What a beautiful photograph!
