Being a farmer

Contributed by Milford Woods

I love being a farmer, it’s in my blood. My dad was a farmer and I spent my formative years in Iowa learning about how to grow corn and potatoes and what and everything else…it’s great. I think it’s amazing to work with my hands all the time and be outside in the fresh air – I think there’s something really respectable about growing something tangible rather than sitting at a desk without spreadsheets and phone calls all day long, you know? I recently got hughes satellite internet for the internet because I needed some way to stay in touch with my vendors. It turns out nowadays crop prices have gotten to where they’re up and down all throughout the course of a day so I need to stay on top of it to know what my stuff is going for. Plus it’s nice to be able to look for farm equipment and things like that, you know? My wife is the perfect farm wife and I really just appreciate that she loves this life, too.

Had Fun!

So, our 2-week trip to the Philippines had come to an end since we left Philippines 23rd of March. It was so much fun doing all the outdoor activities that I've never done before such as zip lining, para sailing, go karting and more.

I didn't expect, the weather there was only in the 80's and it was raining most of the time if not cloudy. So, we didn't get too much tan and no sunburns while we were outdoors having fun and at the beach.

The only thing I didn't like was catching the cough bug that I got from hubby! Then, I just got this bug back home here in the US! It was quite a struggle coughing all along our 20++ hours trip coming back home. Ugh!
I am still groggy with all the pills I am taking. Plus, jet lags and time adjustments.

But other than those, I have enjoyed most of our activities spending it with my family :).
