Feeding animals, hauling hay, processing our own meat, I can do all of these things. Tell me why i cannot read an easy pattern?? I can tell you i can laugh at myself about it now, but a few days ago i felt like i was just stupid. I have come to the conclusion that just because I am a farm girl does not mean that I know or can do everything. Guess what, I am totally OK with not knowing everything too! 

I am sticking with this learning as Master chef is interested in sewing and wants to enter clothing construction for the local 4-H fashion show.

So I am going to do the only thing i know to do, reach out to my mom and have her try to teach this hard headed farm girl. :) 

I know for myself, I usually don't post failures or things that don't turn out the way i think it should. 

Not all of us farm girls can do everything even though we want everyone to think we can.

I just want everyone to know that it is fine to not know how to do everything!


  1. Every one of us has to do ((anything)) a ((first)) time! Oh my...I remember having to learn how to trench for a water line using a professional size trencher. Ugh...I soon had miles of trench behind me as we needed to lay water lines for irrigating fields of corn. I learned to run ALL kinds of equipment but one. I totally refused to learn to drive a dump truck with 12 gears. :/ Us wives and moms just learn to 'suck it up' and jump in with both feet...and do what is need for our families!

  2. Life is full of many challenges. Challenges that will make you or break you depending on how you handle it.
