An Olde Irish Farm


I haven't posted in awhile, so I missed St. Patrick's Day. But I will make it up to you by actually taking you to an old Irish farm. Let's start the tour, shall we?  Perhaps the gentleman farmer will come over and pose for us. Thank you kindly, Sir! After that, we'll mosey over to look at the tool shed. And then, what is a trip to a farm without a look at the pigpen and pig house? It's cute enough for humans to live in, but I'm afraid you would not like the smell at all! Perhaps when the baby piglets come, I will post them. So now we will say good-bye to our farmers as they walk out to the fields in the sunset, to do the last chores of the day. They were kind enough to invite us inside their house, so you will see that on my next post. And then I will tell you the WHOLE story!


 “Meanwhile, friends, wait patiently for the Master's Arrival. You see farmers do this all the time, waiting for their valuable crops to mature, patiently letting the rain do its slow but sure work. Be patient like that. Stay steady and strong. The Master could arrive at any time.”
James 5:7,8

I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your kind words during my illness. I am not back to normal yet, but hoping to be!

So sorry you haven't been feeling well. My Hubby has had several divirticulitus attacks. I can appreciate how you have felt.
About Picasa and blogger. I couldn't post directly from picasa. There wasn't even an icon for blog this any longer.I ended up having to make an album out of the pictures I wanted to post for J and then uploading them somehow and going to blogger dashboard and plowing through things until I got things posted and formatted. What a pain. Perhaps there is an easier way but my non techie mind doesn't know how to do these things.
Any whoooo, its done and my computer is working for the time being. Yippie!!

It's good to have you back Ginny.
I really like the thatch roofs on all those buildings, that is not something we see everyday. I'm looking forward to seeing inside the house.

Those roof, my mum says it won't work in Borneo because rats would nest in them.
