Dairy Days

Despite her timely garb, Carolyn decided she’d like to try out a little bareback riding! Cliffy was the special guest star at this homey event yesterday at Wellington Farm in Grayling. We enjoyed a shady day in the company of my friend Vickie and the nice folks who run the farm. It’s designed to recreate the 1930’s and the folks there dress accordingly.

A touch of Appalachia? Nope! Northern Lower Michigan! Cliff and Trudy chill out in front of Jennie’s Kitchen.

In Jennie’s kitchen they make whipping cream, butter and fresh biscuits. And delicious homemade ice cream!

Trudy made herself at home.

Clifford painted Vickie’s portrait. I think he has an eye for capturing the spirit of the individual!

Stewie had a (little bit scary) guinea hen encounter.

We are perhaps in a bit of denial as we head up to Drummond today. We have left our farm, which goes up for auction July 1. I couldn’t recover from the derailed book project. So Clifford and Trudy may well be offically homeless. Things have been very bleak this year. But I hope this is just a bump in the road for us, which will lead to bigger and better things.

About Nancy J. Bailey

Artist, author, bad karaoke singer. Woodsy ragamuffin. Mom of a horse named Clifford who plays fetch and paints with watercolors. He visits libraries and schools with me, to promote literacy and making the world a better place. Yes, he is house trained, no, he doesn't live in my house! I have written three books about Clifford. But my newest book, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN, is co-written by my awesome sister Amanda, who has Down syndrome. Her unexpected one-liner wisecracks can always make me laugh. If you make me laugh, you've made my day!

    I am so sorry to hear about the house Nancy! I'm a bit behind in keeping up right now so I hadn't realized. My prayers are with you and in my heart I know a bigger and better book deal will come along.

    Nancy, I know we talked already but please remember who you are and that you will prevail!!! Continue to have faith in yourself and a passion for life and what you do. And just remember that your “pretty women” moment will come 🙂
