Meaningful Mondays (LINK UP) Week #6

Join us for the sixth week of Meaningful Mondays.

I adore poetry, going to share a couple poems here from 'The Book of a Thousand Poems'.
I feel this one is very appropriate with the time of year approaching!

Spring Work at the Farm

What does the farmer in the spring?
He sows the seed that harvests bring;
But first he wakes the earth from sleep
By ploughing it well and harrowing it deep

And busy must be the farmer's boy!
To care for the lambs that leap for joy.
To feed the calves so tender and young
He rises as soon as the day's begun.


Thanks to the Prairie Homestead I will be trying out these
Soaked Buttermilk Biscuits too!! I'll you all know how they turn out!!!


And Mondays here always require lots of "washing-up" after a busy weekend and the day of rest.  Love this little poem below.

The Washing-up Song

Sing a song of washing-up,
Water hot as hot,
Cups and saucers, plates and spoons,
Dishes such a lot!
Work the dish-mop round and round,
Wash them clean as clean,
Polish with a dry white cloth,
How busy we have been!

~Elizabeth Gould

I also want to share that my family grain mill arrived Saturday, looking for tutorials or youtube videos on how to use it, etc.  
We also lost a chicken this weekend to a raccoon. So sad!!! Her name was Tina and we loved her, it is always very heartbreaking when we lose one of our dear sweet ladies. She was a Polish hen.
