If you give a mouse a cookie...

Making hay reminds me of the picture book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie." As in, if you want to make hay, you're going to need a side-delivery rake:

And if you need a side-delivery rake, you're going to need a forecart to hook it to:

And if you want to pull the forecart, you're going to need some hardware, and if you don't have it already, then you're going to have to blacksmith it up at your forge:

And you're definitely going to want some horses to pull that whole rig, and aren't they just beauties:

I've had requests for a belly picture, so here it is, 6 months big:


  1. I love that book and you look awesome. Thanks so much for keeping this blog. So cool to see this old farm come alive with the gangs hard work! Hoping to stop by in August during my break! Keep up the great work,

  2. Six months in already?? HOLY MOLY, how did that happen?? You look radiant, my dear. I hope all is well. I LOVE reading your blog.
    ...And I love YOU! Big hugs, and sweet wishes to you guys...
    XOXO Kira

  3. Yeah! Look at that belly! And beautiful face. I'm so excited for you, Anna!
