Hey look....She's Back.

Come in the evening, come in the morning,
Come when expected, come without warning;
Thousands of welcomes you’ll find here before you,
And the oftener you come, the more we’ll adore you.
                                     Irish Rhyme


There is nothing like being welcomed home by the ones who you know will always be waiting with open arms. In my case that would be hat holding heads. You do know that I am not only talking about the humans in my life. As we know cows cannot drive, and if they could I am sure they would have been there at the train station, with their best hats on. My Hero was left to do the pick-up thing. 

Oh yes, indeed it seems I have been missed by the animals I spend every day with. My welcoming committee was as happy to see me, as I was to see them. I am pretty sure it had more to do with the hat modeling, and showing off thing then my being gone but who really knows.


It has been a crazy couple of months, and I have to admit to all but abandoning everything and everyone in my life. My only thought was to rush to the city without a plan “Flying by the seat of my pants” as my Grandma used to say. My only thinking at that time back in October was my opportunity to share in the moments leading up to a lifetime event in my family’s life. 

To be able to help my daughter and her handsome prince when they needed it the most, was important. My daughter and her handsome prince are now a family of three. They now have a Little Princess of their very own. She was born far away in the city, a place where as we know my hat wearing welcoming committee will never be going.


I am sure that when Little Miss comes to the farm she will be extended the same greeting that I get when I arrive. She will have to carry hats in her bag, though. She does seem to have a thing for hats already.

It was a cloudy, damp day when I finally found the time to go visit with the girls who are now back in their winter shelter in the bush, waiting for winter to come. Bossy2 and Red ran right up to greet me. They were as excited as I, at the thought of playing with the hats upon my head. I have to say Red, without the usual hesitation stood with Bossy2 modeling. I am pretty sure that was for my benefit only, and I do believe that I was missed by her most of all.


There was a new addition added to their family when I was gone and Annie and Betty were watching as this new little one found her way to the milk bar. Oh, I love the calves and I did miss this life so much.


At one time while holding Little Miss, thoughts of moving to the city as to always be near her crossed my mind. I had after almost two months figured out how to get around the city by bus and where to shop and actually how to survive. There was only one thing. Bossy2 and the rest of the girls would never forgive me if I left them, I can see that now. I will have to rely on the train and the hope that Little Miss when she finally does get down to visit, will be forever hooked to the life that lies here waiting for her to enjoy.


I am now back where I want to be my friends and Bossy2 and Red just wanted to show off their modeling skills for all of you.

  4. Welcome back to the farm Button. I love the pics of the cows modelling the hats and I'm sure they did miss you. I'm also sure your sweet daughter misses you and hopefully your granddaughter will visit on the farm and come to love it as you do. What wonderful adventures await her. I hope you do Skype and/or Face Time. That's how we enjoy our visits with our daughter and family. Blessings and hugs to you. Pam

  5. Welcome home, B. I am sure your Hero is more than happy to have you home, as are your field friends. No matter how hard she will tug at your heartstrings, I cannot see Little Miss pulling you away from your beloved farm life. You will visit, she will visit, and soon enough she will understand why Gramma has to go back to or stay on the farm. I for one, am happy to have you back. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Hugs, C.

  19. I think you're just where you need to be. That little granddaughter will love visiting the farm, just as my grandchildren love visiting the mountains. You and the animals have so much to teach her. I only wished I looked as good as BossyII and Red in hats!

  20. Congratulations on becoming a caring Grannie! It will be fun. However, you will remain loyal to your other friends who you treat so well.

  21. It's nice to see those models wearing the latest fashions. And with your family is exactly where you should have been at that time. A grandparent has to be afforded the proper amount of spoiling!

  24. I am 100% convinced that Little Miss will be as hooked on the life as you are, when she eventually visits. How could she not be? Hat wearing cows to welcome her? Calves to watch over? A Grandma in residence? It's the perfect lifestyle.

  25. A new Little Miss, congrats to all!

  26. Hi Buttons - well I have to admit that it feels right to me to know you're back on the farm. I'm sure that little grandbaby will learn to love her farm visits too. Such a lucky girl! Looking forward to seeing you in just a couple of weeks now! I might even have some new hat plans to tell you about :)
