In bloom now
I'm b-a-c-k!! I usually try not to complain about my work since I feel so fortunate to have good health which allows me to work at my age. But tonight, I'm exhausted! We're having dry weather and it makes for an excellent time to cut and bale hay. My mornings start early; I always like to do the housework first, not thorough cleaning, but making the beds and washing the dishes. I'm bottle feeding another calf, so he comes next and then on to the chicken houses to walk through them and see that all the equipment is working properly. Today we ate a quick lunch and went to the hayfield where we baled 75 bales for ourselves, then on to our son-in-law's field to bale his hay. But work wasn't finished yet! The calf had to have his supper, the chickens had to be checked again, and our supper had to be cooked and the dishes washed. I have to wash dishes by hand; I have a dishwasher, but, that's a whole other story about drain problems! So, if you don't hear from me again for a few days, just know we're "making hay while the sun is shining". I'll still try to have time to read your blogs.
