Justin, who likes catching peoples unawares, snapped this photo of me early in the morning (just before sun was coming up) doing the watering and feeding of the animals. I tried to fend him off with a scowl and a scolding, but of course, that didn’t work cuz he couldn’t see even my mouth yet let alone understand what on earth I was muttering.
Don’t make fun! Sorry, then again, perhaps I will give you permission to snicker just a little bit.
Didn’t I said it was cold? I’m not kidding! Yeah, I know “cold” is relative, but for us So Calies this weather is just about as cold as it comes at 26 degrees!
Hmmm, the more I look at this photo I keep thinking to myself that I’ve seen this photo somewhere! I have, I have… Ah right. I have seen it before! It’s Laura Ingalls in the Long Winter! In the old LHOTP editions there’s a sketch of Laura riding with Almanzo. Don’t you see the resemblance?
P.S If you want to know more about my wardrobe ensemble. Coat – handme down from a lady who was cleaning out her garage (didn’t have a belt so the non matching belt come from another second hand coat), handknitted scarf, turtle neck from Goodwill, pants handme downs from a friend, gloves borrowing from a friend, and a fair trade hat from Peddler’s Wagon
HomeGrown Film Review
Just received an email from someone who saw HomeGrown in New York back in November.
However, the film is more than just about a unique family farm. “Home Grown” reveals how a sustainable lifestyle is not only feasible, but absolutely expedient for a better quality of life, for the future of our planet and as a quiet protest of “the corporate powers that be”.
“Home Grown” and the Dervaes family are an inspiration on many levels, allowing you to take away from their story whatever you are ready and willing to, but unwilling to let you walk away from the film without seeing the world and your place in it a little differently.
:: Field Hand Appreciation :: MK $150 donation. We are truly blessed and humbled by your generous support. Thank you so very much. We have plans to put your money to work, so stay tuned and watch us grow thanks to your support. Many blessings to you.
P.S. I just purchased another educational documentary to screen at one of our monthly community gatherings next year! Thank you all who have contributed to our outreach. Such donations help with the outreach overhead because we have to pay higher prices for such documentary DVDs because they are used and screened in a public setting.
