The Inspired Writer/Farmer’s Farmhouse (perhaps it’s time to do the dishes)


This is an excusive look inside a farmhouse whose occupants have been busy with shows promoting their farm, fluffy farm animals, and writing books.  I warn you, these written images are not for the meek.


There are cat boogies in my hair

the lamb just peed under the chair

the dining table is filled with business and such

the dishes in the sink are too scary to touch.

I have lost the dog, I must confess

He’s probably under all this mess

Scary spiders have moved into the cobwebs, you see

Something under the couch is lurking at me (oh wait, that’s a kitten)

Spring clean I must!

Scrub, and sweep, and certainly dust.

Been writing books, and my mind’s elsewhere with all this fluff

I hope to find my sanity under all this stuff!

    Great poem, but leave the dusting after a while it won’t get any worse, I don’t iron clothes either unless it’s linen or a dress shirt of nicks, life’s too short!

      Yeah, rarely iron here either. But, I really do need to clean! First thing tomorrow right after blogging!

      Oh so true. Even at our most stressed and most tired, our job is the best!

    Ah yes, spring cleaning. Do you have any good recipes for homemade cleaning solutions? I have recently tried one of Dr. Bronner’s, the degreaser multipurpose household one. I like the peppermint soap or the almond one.
    I detest ironing too, by the way 😝
