According to St. Bonaventure, all the angels in heaven unceasingly call out to her: "Holy, holy, holy Mary, Virgin Mother of God." They greet her countless times each day with the angelic greeting, "Hail, Mary", while prostrating themselves before her, begging her as a favour to honour them with one of her requests. According to St. Augustine, even St. Michael, though prince of all the heavenly court, is the most eager of all the angels to honour her and lead others to honour her. At all times he awaits the privilege of going at her word to the aid of one of her servants.

Kili is now 4-1/2 months old. Merry is his special buddy.
We got a small herd from someone in our homeschooling group. (since then we got 3 more from one of Aragorn's brothers.... and brought some in to be butchered). God willing we will eventually have a barn up and be able to milk our cow here at our place. But it'll continue to be a slow process... hey, we've got 14 mouths to feed.... do the math... we have limited time... but thankfully I have a very hardworking awesome husband.
These days are hard without Pop. He would have loved to be here on this day we unloaded these steers. I can easily imagine his smile and delight.
I think these days are the hardest yet.... we miss him so much.

You won't find anything fancy at our place, but that's alright.
I've named our farmette St. Michael's Hobby 'n Eats.
The horse was intrigued by the steers....
.... and by Marigold.
