So glad I was running late.

Started mowing.

Came in to make a spaghetti supper.

Washed dishes.

Jump-started the 4-wheeler so Pig-farmer could load it in the truck.

I have to take it to the shop tomorrow.

Finished mowing.

Had to soak the gimpy goat’s foot in Epsom Salts (more on that tomorrow).

Fed the barn cats.




I stopped to gawk.

love a gorgeous moon.

love being outside on my little farm for the Harvest Moon.


Sigh…… life has moments that take my breath away.

Moments that make me know that God is alive and well and at work.


I am content here at Happy Ass farm.

I hope you are content, too.

    Amazing photos! I bet you did what I do when I see something like that: just break out in a broad smile and run for the camera! No full moon sighting for us this time: we’ve had over 5 inches of rain today, and it’s still raining.

    That moon was even bigger in bar harbor Maine

    I’m glad you got out there and took the shot for us. Wow. We had so many clouds, it was hard to tell there was a moon at all.

    The moon has been very beautiful the last few nights. I’m fortunate to live in a small town where city lights do not dull the moon and stars. Yet I long for a moonlight night in the country where nothing keeps the moon and stars from shining their brightest.

    That was so beautiful I had to pin it in my Country Living spot on Pinterest. I hope you don’t mind.

    Loved that photo with the orange flowers in front of the harvest moon. Do you and Pig Farmer REALLY call it Happy Ass Farm?
