On busy weekends
I am not one to take myself overly seriously. I also gave up a life of stress an eternity ago, it seems, when I left my city job behind. However, every once in a while I will have a bout of “get it done” farm-related insomnia! Like, ohgosh wouldn’t it be great if I could take two days off of work to at least get caught up on my to-do list?
And then I have weekends like last weekend. It was a weekend in which I get so many things crossed off that I realize…my list is probably not long enough!
But, two non-weekend days off does sound nice.
Hard to tell, but the grape vines are pruned: I always seem to leave more on the ground than on the trellises. Number One at the top; Number Two at the bottom.
The kids really don’t help much with the trimming pickup, but they think the tractor is cool. Number Two in the driver’s seat, Number Three (bottle baby) riding sidecar.
Kids are great as dance partners with your own kid, though. That’s little Number Three.
And there are bunnies to pet. It’s amazing how quickly they are growing; they’re a month old. And: we have six of the things!
Here’s the girl holding a baby and Daddy Dum-Dum to show you how big the babies will eventually get; not big in other words, as they’re Mini-Rex rabbits…and terribly soft.
And Ruby is officially on lock-down under the Chicken Tractor, complete with doghouse and 9 eggs. Earl is verklempt!
