Here’s some “post” Valentine cheer. Our yesterday was busy and I didn’t have time to wish everyone lots of love, chocolate and flowers for the big day. Our celebrating won’t end just yet…….we still have some chocolate cupcakes to devour. I’m thinkin’ I need to share the cupcakes with some friends……..I was kind of selfish with the strawberries, you know. 054.jpg      These are perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning while milking bovines. I took one out to the barn with me, and it gave me enough energy to keep on working until early afternoon. And of course…..milk is a perfect “love mate” with these too. 060.jpg       Why didn’t someone tell me about Valentines Day?! I saw everyone eating a lot of chocolate……nobody ever offered me any. That kinda ticks me off….at least give me some extra milk. And I like it warm. Fresh from the cow. A Jersey cow. Holstein will do in a pinch. I like all the butterfat. No, I’m not picky…..033.jpg     I don’t know what the heck is going on…..my human kept taking my picture. She kept saying something about a heart. My conclusion is this….she’s weird and she needs to put that “camera” away and keep her head in the game. For starters……give me some feed….I’m hungry. 050.jpg     This is Marshall’s favorite chore shirt. How appropriate…… He didn’t want me taking his picture. Can you tell?!

       Well, it’s past bedtime for all professional milkmaids………hope your holiday was “sweet”, mine was packed full of bovines, calves, and cow poop. Is that sweet? I don’t think so. But I squeezed in enough chocolate to make up for it……………………….Carol
