One of those cows is employed full-time as a milk provider. As I chatted with my sister-in-law in the kitchen during the afternoons, it wasn't uncommon for a neighbor to come to the door with an empty gallon jar for their regular "fill up." Organic milk, fresh out of the cow!
The neighbors are pretty far away, but within "hollerin' distance."

My sister-in-law has a modern oven and stovetop, but also still uses this woodstove for baking, cooking, and heating the house.
(Never mind the bottle of wine that managed to sneak into the nativity...)
As we celebrate the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ, be blessed. Be happy. Be safe. Be comforted. Be well.
