I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
Local fairs are always fun. My friend Linda goes to hers every year and demonstrates spinning with the wool she produces on her own farm. They have reduced their sheep herd recently, but have gotten honey bees. Every year I think I'd like to go watch her demonstrate. This year I finally got to do it. The day was a great temperature, and we spent a good afternoon hanging out and visiting between her visits with interested fair goers.
