Farm girl???

The title "Farm Girl" brings to (my) mind images of the movie, The Princess Bride. LOVE that movie!!!! I'm not sure why, but every time I think it (farm girl), I hear Buttercup in my head saying, "Farm boy, fetch me that pitcher." Or "Farm boy, polish my horse's saddle. I want to see my face shining in it by morning."  Classic.
 I do realize that she says farm boy, but my brain can easily translate that into farm girl...not that she would be in love with a farm girl.....    Well.....whatever.
My point is.....I hear that phrase in my head every time I say farm girl, which bring me to the reason for this blog.

I have discovered that I am not a farm girl...=/

I do live an 6.5 acres purchased for the making of a hobby type farm. My kids love the creeks and yard and I love my house and the view from our porch. Especially when my Army Man has just cut the grass!!!  God has been good to us.

I think, though, I may have been a bit hasty in my description of "future small farm wife" in my Google profile...I enjoy planting flowers and I enjoy vegetable gardening (in the spring) before it gets too hot to be outside (when you reeeeally need to be outside weeding and such!!) and buggy.I don't think that qualifies me to be a farm girl.
I like my air conditioned inside when it is hot outside.
You cannot farm inside.

These are our heirloom pumpkins. We have been shaking off the grasshoppers while the chickens roam around nearby....hopefully they will have some leaves left on them!!!

We have chickens. And while I love looking at them and watching them (and photographing them!), I don't really care to be near them. They are funny to watch, but they freak me out a little.  Unpredictable.   Now, my daughter picks them up and snuggles with them, but all I can think is...they poo everywhere!!!! =/
At least Bella (our dog) seems to have a designated area for necessities and we NeVeR see her business in the yard!!!! =)

I do like the idea of having cows, but as I learned from the chickens the idea and the reality are very different. Not sure how I will do when we actually have cows roaming around in what is now our yard.  Cows get very big.  Their poo is very big (although good for gardening!!)
Not even sure I will be able to eat the meat we get from our own cows because I will have watched them "grow up"!

Shocking! My poor Army Man!!! He has his work cut out for him!!!

I like to sit our our porch and take in the's a lovely little piece of land that we have and we do enjoy it!!
