A Day at our olde farm.....

Hello everyone..
Just a fun posting tonight of some pics  of our day at the farm..

We had a quick breakfast and Sammi and I are in the car waiting to go.. smile..
We haven't been there for awhile and we are looking forward to spending the day..

Shortly after we arrive I decided to mix up a loaf of bread...
A little hint that perhaps you already know..
If you have flour and you don't use it up quickly then add some bay leaves to keep pests out of it..
After a bit of tidying up and puttering around I put  dinner on to cook..
And set the table..

Farm dishes on an old harvest table...

And here's an old farm day meal...
Garlic mashed potatoes, carrots, fried saurkraut and hamburger patties with onions...
And spring water.. smile..

It's all ready.. Where is that man?

Still painting..
Come on my dear... It's getting cold.. smile..
What a man..

We just start our lunch when we hear someone coming down the lane..
Company ...
All the way from Prince Edward Island.
They are on a little field trip to see the windmill farm just up the road..
"Come on in"

After they left I cleaned up the dinner dishes and cooked the bread...

The dear man is still painting..
He takes such a nice picture... grin..

Time for a cup of tea and working on my little lesson for Keepers of the Home which is on Saturday..
We will be having a Fall Day...
Making some fall decorations and recipes..

Well, the sun is going down over the Kent Hills..

And setting over the old barn.. Another day almost over..

Time to turn off the lights and head home..
Another day of blessing.. Thank you Lord..

The little church just down the road is lit up tonight..
Isn't it lovely?

Thanks for visiting the farm with us today..
Looking forward to hearing from you all..
God bless..
Love to you all..


  1. What a nice day on your farm! Your meal looks so good. And how sweet the table looks!

  2. So good to have a day with your husband. He's looking in that window, just smiling at you, you can see the love in his eyes for you!
    So good to have a country meal, and a visit with friends! Thanks for sharing.

    I had a great day out with my husband yesterday, after a doctor appointment. We rambled the back roads, took some pictures, feasted on sandwiches in a wayside picnic, saw some amazing animals, and felt the fall breeze blow through our hair. Nothing like a great day out in the country.

  3. OH GOODNESS Faye Henry!!
    Everytime I visit you I wish I was there. From all the lovely photos to the heavenly meal. How come my bread never looks like yours?
    What a sweet husband you have. You are blessed. Me too!
    Love & JOY, Trace

  4. What a nice day. Your meal sounded so good...bread looked good too. Blessings from Wisconsin

  5. What lovely pictures. Your post is the second time this week I have heard about bay leaves in with flour to keep the bugs away.

    What a lovely table that is. Your pictures were great to look at. I really like the one of the church.

    Have a wonderful day.


  6. Your days are always fun to hear about! So glad the two of you had such a wonderful day together.

  8. I love your blog's design! I just started one myself for our church's website. I'm kind of new to blogging though so I'm checking out other Christian blogs to get some inspiration for design and content. Feel free to check our new blog at Sanctuary of Praise

    Would love to know what you think!

  10. Oh... what a lovely time I've had visiting you! Like when you've been away from an old friend, and you meet up again and there's so much to talk (look) over! As always, your blog is a piece of heaven... thank you for a lovely evening!

  11. I can't think of how a day could be any better than this, Faye~ spending the day at your beautiful farm, a delicious meal and friends dropping by!
