Cultivating a DreamSo, since I actually became a farmer’s wife, I haven’t had time to write about becoming a farmer’s wife.

Go figure.

I've got chickens to feed, eggs to gather, fields to consider, barns to take down, barns to put up, and a life to learn. 

I guess when I thought about being a farmer’s wife, I didn’t think it would be so much work.

It’s like delivering the newspaper, or raising children, or having a good marriage – it’s just so daily.

Pauline, I'm glad that you are happy in leading a farmer's life. The change from fishing to farming must have indeed been a huge change in life style. Both required hard work but one was makes a living from water and the other makes a living from land. Both are as you say under God's control. Your two Pyrenees dog additions should help with keeping the homestead safe from predators. They have natural instincts about that. My life experience has been that life is good on the farm. Have a great life changing day on the farm.
