Today instead of feeling like this:
I feel a lot more like this:
Thanks guys! I’m officially unblog-blocked. I appreciate all the nice comments, and the dozens – and I do mean dozens – of emails you sent. It makes me feel loads better. I wish I could answer all of you, but there’s no way I have that kind of free time. So please accept my gratitude. I’m feelin’ the love!
That doesn’t mean you’re getting much of a post today though ;-P Today is Chore Day and I’ve spent the last 4 hours cleaning hen houses and tidying up the farm and stripping my raised beds of all the dying plants. Delightfully my cucumbers were still trying to produce cukes for me, even though the plants themselves were almost dead, and I pulled another dozen or so cucumbers off them. They mostly look like balloon animals, fat at one end and skinny at the other, or just like teardrops. I’ve tossed most of them into the bucket with the apples that are thundering off the tree, so the chickens will have lots of delightful snacks. And speaking of apples, I have loads still on the tree so if anyone wants to come over and pick apples, and bake me a pie or something, just let me know ;-)
Between shoveling up piles of woodchips to tame the mud in the chicken coops, we played some frisbee.
Even Springaling is getting the hang of it, sort of.
And we hunted some wabbits.
And some of us just lay around looking as freakin’ adorable as possible. I *heart* my old man dog so very much :)
But there are still lots of chores to finish and errands to run, so I can’t be futzing around on the computer for much longer.
However, this weekend we will be doing some of this:
And by “this” I DON’T mean licking the weave poles with an obscenely long tongue! And hopefully he will be looking forward and not at me … but Dex is entered in his third ever trial on Saturday. So while I am kind of ripping you off with this shorty post, I will have video to post for you on the weekend, and that will make up for it :)
Spring hopes this will tide you over. Or else.
