I pulled the last of the taps out today and planted a row of peas.
I could have, should have, done both earlier but didn’t.
raking up winter-fallen leaves and branches,
teaching That Naughty Little Mini Horse to work,
you should see her in her harness, what a doll,
soon I’ll be calling her That Naughty but Hardworking Little Mini Horse,
also doing house stuff like painting and organizing,
stuff I know I won’t do as the weather progresses towards summer.
I love this time of year but usually wear myself out trying to get too much done too fast.
Then I am sick and exhausted and unable to keep things going.
Time management, resource management – yes?
Not just keywords for the business world.
I am trying to work in half-hour or forty-five minute intervals, interchanging the physically demanding tasks with the mentally demanding tasks.
I think, but am not certain, that Annabelle settled, if yes, she will be due Nov 27th.
The butcher called yesterday and the beef is ready.
Annabelle is still needing a lot of extra tlc.
She misses Huckleberry, but my barn has a nice feeling to it these days, much less stress in the air.
Princess is still sitting on two turkey eggs, I candled them and they are duds.
I am picking up some chicks on the 23rd to put under her so she’ll stop brooding.
