Farm Day Monday

It doesn’t matter how much winter rain we may have had when the river
pumps throw a hissy fit we are out of water. So instead of driving to the pumps
rugged up, grabbed my camera and walked.

The 'walk' to the river pumps.

    I love your site and the photos.... one thing about farm life never changes... wherever you have a farm water problems are sure to follow.

    I remember when we had guests once and as they were about to leave, one of them made the wry comment, "It's the first time I've had a wash, a shave and cleaned my teeth in one mug of water."
    That's farm life for you.

    Hi Shirley, thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind words:) Water can be like liquid gold especially with 4 kids ( 2 of which are teenagers)!

    The electric pump on our house bore has let us down a couple of times lately, too - after running like clockwork for over 30 years! There's nothing worse than being without water.
    Lovely photos, Alissa.

    Thanks Heather:) It might be cold but the sun was out and it was too nice a day to drive. I wish we could get 30 years out of our pumps - we can't go more than 30 days sometimes. Fingers crossed both our pumps now behave themselves:)

    Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you're using? I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a honest price? Cheers, I appreciate it!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks
