Some days, blogging time rolls around and I sit figuratively chewing my pencil wondering what to tell y’all but not today.
Today, I could have told you about the bloody chicken coup
or shared our daily delight that some past Homestead inhabitant loved tulips as much as we do.
I could have shared stories of the visit we had from the local mallard mama and her thirteen offspring, photographic evidence of the sneaked plunder from The Bean Counter’s beehive spring clean, or shared our collected relief that The Farmer’s room is finally finished
but I have news bigger than all of that because yesterday Farm Girl had a birthday; Fourteen times around the sun!
Now that’s worthy of a Homestead holiday
Social media makes fourteen quite a big deal so Farm Girl decided to embrace that with an ice cream breakfast at one of the hippest venues in town and a wander around all the instaworthy spots (apparently that’s a thing), two of which we remembered to record.
Of course, that the normal traditions of being woken up with cake and family dinner at a favourite restaurant happened without saying.
We older Homesteaders are not quite sure where that fourteen years has gone, but we’re all very happy to have spent them in the company of our very own clever, funny, brave, bright, gorgeous, and altogether awesome Farm Girl.
And as for ice cream for breakfast…the jury is still out.
