t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


A Real "Labor Day"

This city mouse visited her country mice mother and sister on their farm and ranch respectively. This is how they put us to work. Well actually, I didn't work, I just followed around on my mom's bike with the camera.

It all began in my sister's hay field.
It was followed by a dramatic ride atop the bales in Grandpa's pickup truck.

Clearly this was a messy job.

And the finale was certainly the hay elevator. Notice the country mice children versus my city mice.

Tah dah! The hay loft with fresh new hay for grandpa's animals.
Happy hard Labor Day!
