A Trip to the Farm

 We went to a historical working farm
the other day
called Eidem Farm.
They had free admission that day and 
a farmer's market.
Above is the farm house, built in the late 1800's.
 It's pretty neat inside, 
that's my girl checking out the old fashioned dresser.
 And of course the old stove,
which they still use for demonstrations.
For holiday tours, they will cook and bake on it.
I would love to go to the Halloween or Christmas one.
 Here's the barn.
 They had one goat that was so cute and friendly.
 Inside the barn looking up.

 I grew up on a farm,
so it was fun to show my girl 
a bit about farm life.
Like the pump below,
I got to show her how to pump water,
that was one of my jobs as a kid.
Bye for now!

what a wonderful day you had with your little girl, looking back at the way things used to be. I remember those old stoves... my Grandparents had one similar to that in their little cabin in the woods.

Still in a Christmas and winter mood with my art, and still working on my technique with gouache. It's a much trickier medium than I ...
