Live. Laugh. Farm.

Starting your weekend off on the right foot, kind of. 

I hope all of you have a great weekend planned. My includes not traveling! My poor suitcase is going to wonder what is up when it lays unpacked at the foot of my bed. This weekend agenda includes calving cows, playing catch up with work projects, and hopefully getting all of our pictures scanned in for our wedding slide show.

I saw these pictures today and it brighten my mood. Earlier we had a bull calf born. Then after that we had a second bull calf born. Unfortunately, the Boy had some trouble with this one. The cow was having a hard time having the baby on her own, so he called the vet and together they pulled the calf. Unfortunately, the bull calf was born dead. The vet said there isn't really an answer to what may have gone wrong, but he said that the baby could have been dead for a few days.

Stuff like that happens on the farm. To make the Boy feel better I whipped up a batch of brownie batter that he brought home from the grocery store the other day. I was so impressed with how little time it took with my new Kitchen Aid. However, when they came out of the over they looked a lot more like cakes than brownies. Yup, that's right I had grabbed the wrong box. But hey who doesn't like cake!

Have a great weekend, and if you get a chance check out Agriculture Impressions on Facebook, and also their Etsy store where you can buy these prints.

  1. Hey, as long as it's chocolate, right?

    Don't you love your mixer? Mine is one of my most prized possessions. I seriously considered grabbing it last spring when we got evacuated due to wildfires. This is one of my favorite cake recipes and it's one of those that definitely requires a stand mixer:

    Sorry to hear you all had a rough day, and I hope the cake helped a little. :)
