~Fun On the Farm

 It’s always fun to go on an adventure with the girls. This time I went to a friend’s farm for a girls sleepover. Of course for me it was not only fun to be at Marlo’s “Hollow Oak Farm,” in Sullivan, NH…but the beauty that surrounds the farm made for some wonderful photo ops!


I fell in love with their Scottish Highlander cows! The Highlander’s long shaggy hair and their pointy horns made them look like furry beasts lumbering around in the snowy pastures.


My friend Maria was having a good time hand feeding the cows!

We had a delicious fireside dinner which included some baked ham, roasted venison & fresh baked bread prepared by Marlo's husband by candle lite. It was so good we ate the rest for brunch the next morning!

This has been such a long winter for us all, so just escaping for a night and slowing down just a wee bit was fuel for the soul. I think back to a quote that a friend’s grandmother once said…”Moments like this add days to your life,” how true is that!


Blessings, Bonnie

  6. Bonnie I enjoyed your post, love the Shetland Cows. We raised Belties.
    As far as winter I have a driveway of ice, and still have snow on the roof.
    gave the rake a try, but to heavy to lift it.Best thing to not get cabin fever is -get out. Today I have a window, no sleet.
