An Ordinary Day on the Farm

A new day.  I breathe in the fresh air with thanksgiving.

Today’s to-do list:

Pick up granddaughter so she can play at Grammie and Papa’s house while Mama is at work.

Dig big holes in four places and plant fruit trees.

Check on seedlings.  Move larger pots if they are not getting enough sun.

Remove debris from garden.  Five young volunteers are coming Saturday to help me design garden beds.

Bottle feed lambs three times today.  Rough work.

Take goats for a walk.

Spend time with my daughter, Shyanne, who has just moved back home.  It is delightful to have her here.

Reminisce a bit and light a candle for my best friend, Nancy, that died a year ago today.

Embrace the sunshine.

Mail my book to the person that ordered it.

Play with kittens.

Kiss my husband.

I love this lifestyle!

    March always is harder for me to get through, my Nana died in March.
    Also, I am counting down the days until we close on our new house. The original closing date was pushed back a week. So we can start moving in on the Monday after Easter. I guess it’s all part of God’s plan.
    Have a blessed day!
