Farmin’ Friday: Fencing after four inches

Joslyn and I rode along with John this morning as he did a little fencing. 

It rained four inches here this week, and it’s quite obvious by these few photos.

Sadly, we had some alfalfa down during this rain. We were all a little depressed about that, but for all the crops and pastures the rain was good. 


It is not this wet everywhere, we were just working in a low spot where the water from the rain is draining out toward Lake Henry. 

Happy Friday!

    I just finished reading your book Wild Man and so enjoyed reading about the stories of your family. I recall going to the Western Store to get our cowboy boots, and a ride over with my Dad to check out the poker game adventure at the Laundry mat in Auxvasse. Thanks for sharing the memories!

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I am from a family of all girls. I always keep a journal. John & I were married back in 2013. It was a miracle then & it is now. We had three kids between Oct 2014 & August 2018 : Joslyn Shea, J.D., and Jesse Lee. We remodeled two houses & moved three times in our first 5 years. I grew up in Missouri, but was transplanted to South Dakota. I am working on my masters at Sioux Falls Seminary as of 6.1.19.

I started Sierra Shea & Co. as a space to curate encouragement for all women toward creative, redemptive lives as daughters of the King of Kings.
