just another Tuesday on the farm

Where do I begin today?

Things down on the farm are coming along nicely. Not only are the baby chicks growing, but the Henriettas were given another chance to free roam the yard yesterday and today, and despite a scare (I assumed they had been taken by a hawk or an owl when, in fact, they were in the bushes hiding) all is well. So crisis averted, but my nerves were shot. Then, as if that wasnt’ bad enough, I got sick at the grocery store.

Who does this?

Me, apparently. Oh well. At the end of the day, all I was left with was exhaustion, and I can certainly live with that. In fact, we’re old friends.

Or mortal enemies, I can’t decide which.

But, not to worry, my story has a happy ending.

The kitchen is clean. The kids are visiting. The chickens are all safely sleeping in their pens. And I’m tucked into bed, where I’ve fallen asleep six times while attempting to post this blog. Life, as they say, is back to normal.

Until the next time…I’ll be trying to get a few hours of sleep before the dawn!
