i'm not a slave to this blog

well, i kind of am. yesterday i was having mini panic attacks about not having a great story to write about…but sometimes when you're marathon watching the united states of tara…it's okay.

you don't have to write a blog post. and you know what…people probably won't miss it. like…at all. the only person that's actually going to realize you didn't post on monday for the first time in forever is your loco mother who leaves wink-face emoticons ( ;) ) on all your instagrams. (hi mom!) oh, and maybe your husband who's glad you haven't mentioned your blog and it's pageviews for a single day in history.

but that's a whole different battle. i'll prove that farmer wrong one day. one day i will make a little $$ off this here blog. besides documenting priceless memories…it is the #1 goal. always has been. don't judge. granted, in the meantime, i've run across some pret-ty fantastic women-friends in blog-land…so i guess that's just a casualty of this whole bit.

onto bigger and better things.

you may have heard me speak of the weather out here and our general lack of spring-ness. yesterday, someone heard my pleas and prayers. the wind stopped gusting at 45 mph and the sun beat it's beautiful rays on us. all. day. long. it's pretty amazing what one day of good weather can do for the soul.
the weather was so good, in fact, we were able to walk around the farm sans pants. and by we i mean kaye…and only kaye. we're not so secluded that i could have pulled that off, but pretty close.

we hopped on the four-wheeler and took a ride enjoying all the beauty. the alfalfa fields look like seas of green. (green dollar bills.) the majority of our water is turned on so hundreds of sprinklers are bathing our fields. it's all quite lovely. and as a bonus, there are about one-trillion birds, gophers, mice, hawks, owls flying and scampering around…and turtle can't help but point every. single. one out to me.
farm life…there's a lot of charm to be found. it's definitely safe to say our turtle is in love with her farm…and farmer. it's mutual.

speaking of farmer...we got to help our farmer fix some pivots (giant metal contraption that pivots around the field spraying water…this is part of a pivot…)

our turtle…she's such a big help…said no one ever.
we really can't wait for the tractor driving to begin. i have plans to drop kaye with our farmer with ample amounts of snacks. they'll both be satisfied for hours. it's the perfect plan. then i'll be free to go for runs sans stroller…and really, that's the best kind of running. i'll also be free to snack on nutella as i marathon-watch my next netflix obsession.

i have plans people…big plans.

speaking of running…i was able to run outside for the first time in a very long time. i nearly forgot that i love running. which i've concluded just means i absolutely HATE running on the treadmill.

regardless…between the weather, the farmer-time, and the run outside…yesterday was nearly perfect. today better not let me down. i have high expectations.

  6. I am a big believer in not having to post every day. Before I took my blogging break I was one of those bloggers that had a post every.single.day and I had them scheduled and written out and lists of posts ideas in case I went blank. and honestly, I have better followers now than I did then. The best blog written is a life lived blog and you can't live life if you're constantly in front of a computer - well, you can but its boring. haha.

  11. Yep, I've skipped out on a few days of fresh posts as well. It's good to have a few days reprieve :)

    I love running on the treadmill because I'm not much for the outdoors......and I'm much for the trashy tv....sooo....

  17. Sounds like a wonderful day! And no apologies for wanting to make money from your blog. I just got a blog check so that means a new outfit for me. All us girls could use a new outfit.

    I need to try United States of Tara again. I think I'll turn on the Netflix.

  18. Oh my goodness I feel like I haven't gotten my farm fix for such a loooooong time and I missed it!! Sorry I've been such a missing jerk lately, but glad to be back and catch up with my funny friend (that's you, I'm referring to.)

  19. So glad you guys are getting some sunshine! Love the pics - your little gal looks just like your farmer:) Enjoy the running sans stroller and the Nutella. You're making me wish my hubby had hours of tractor time in the future...

  20. Love Turtle's sweatshirt! My niece had a shirt like that & loved it. She asked if she could wear it every day.. yes the alfalfa is green green green & it uplifts my mood that the colder weather is gone for now. I'm counting down the days til I can smell freshly tilled dirt. Ah, the little things!
