down on the farm

We started doing farm chores today -- well, my husband worked his butt off, and i did a very few things while talking a lot.  :-) 

His jobs today included building a firewood bin out of fence-stakes and pallets, and filling it up with fallen-tree parts.  Rescued a goat who got her horns hung up in the fence.  He also got to play with the tractor.  My big moment was feeding eggs and vegetable trimmings to the piggies -- they so enjoyed their snacks, i got quite a charge out of them! 

It was a beautiful day:  didn't get too hot, but the sun shone brightly.  We knocked off "work" in the early afternoon and sat in the shade sipping tonics and watching the chickens -- little characters!  Hit the grocery for essentials (wine), and picked up some lovely steaks.  DIL cooked us pork chops with onions, apples and sauerkraut; i roasted the asparagus.  Yum.

The guys wrestled with the mowing attachment for the tractor while i met the horses next door.  Then we all just sat around exercising our voices and getting sleepy....  Our bed is low enough for Spense to be able to jump up onto it, and when he snapped at J for moving his foot wrong, it woke me ... and here i am writing blog posts at 3 in the morning! 

:-)  It was a good day.
