Is It Friday Yet?

Ok...this has been quite a week...
a week I am not ready to repeat!

First...Monday, I fell up the basement stairs and face-planted on a wooden step.
What I hoped would be an injury that would make me look more like 
Angelina Joli (lips) ended up just giving me a fat lip on the left
with a big purple bruise on my upper lip not unlike the look of half a mustache!

Tuesday....while wielding a rather large knife, preparing dinner,
I proceeded to cut the tip off of my left ring finger... along with the ribs of Swiss Chard.
Luckily it was Rainbow chard, so the blood blended in.

Thursday (yesterday)....while mowing, I drove headlong into a hornet.
As I sit here typing, the left half of my nose and eye are swelling
and hurt like a son of a gun.

Lessons learned... never play "chicken" with a hornet...
don't try to carry a dozen canning jars up the basement stairs...
and....fingertips are not good in a sauté!

To top it all off, Ginger and MaryAnn escaped yesterday afternoon.
They went on quite an excellent adventure...
slipping out of a corner of some temporary fencing that I put up to extend their grazing area.
(that's the last time I try doing something nice for them!)
Hubbs and I and Jim and Kathy (our friends and neighbors)
spent quite a while searching for them.
Thankfully, Jim chased them out of the woods and they walked back to their yard
willingly.... ready for their dinner.

By the end of the day I needed a bit of humor.
So, off to the donkey yard, to do a little grooming...

Donkeys are quite curious and love to pick things up in their mouth.

They also have a really good sense of humor!
Here is Chloe's impression of a moose.
(She knew I needed a good laugh!)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
It looks like Autumn is settling in on the farm this weekend...
lower temps and chilly nights.
Sweater weather....I love it!

PS.... I had a chance to meet my favorite little buddy, Tyler,
 and his Mommy this week at the park.
 Look who has a big boy haircut!


  1. You might just want to quit while you're ahead and let everyone else do your work. The donkeys are funny. I might have to try that with mine. Not.

  2. Yikes, you have had quite a week... Hope the weekend and next week will be better for you.

  3. Ouch, Ouch, Ouch . . . happy some giggles came your way later in the day! Be careful now . . .

  4. Oh my! I hope everything heals up quickly! And Tyler is growing up so fast!

  5. Oh, my poor dear! You are quite beat up! I get these rounds of accidental mishaps, every once in awhile...hope this is the end of it for you! Love the moose look...gave me a good laugh. And look at that expression on Tyler's face...he is so happy to see you! What a doll, he is indeed growing into a big boy!

  6. You need a little TLC this weekend. Love the pictures!! Tyler is getting so big, love his smile.

  7. Good lord, you sound like me! I am the biggest klutz!! I have had more stitches and sprains and bumps and diggers than anyone I know! You go lay down!!!!!!
    Love the moose imitation. I laughed out loud. LOUD!

    And who could not find healing in the smile of a little one..Thanks for sharing.
    Slow down a tidge, Aye?
    No more rear-ending flying stingey thingys!

  9. Time for some TLC for you. Loved the moose imitation,it made me laugh out loud!!

  12. Tyler looks so handsome with his new big boy haircut! What a cutie! And what a week for you Bev...I hope you are feeling better soon. Today is beautiful here is SE PA. We drove up to Malvern to look at front door hardware for a new door we have on order. We took the scenic backroads. It's pretty anywhere in PA - so green. Have a wonderful weekend.

  13. I think you need a big hug but good job Chloe..Tylers getting too big too fast..

  14. Well they say it comes in three's ! I had a good giggle at the moose impersonation ! I do hope you are ok now and be careful out there girl ! Have a good day !

  15. Your escapades sound like things that I might do...although I generally don't try to fit so many into just one week. I hope next week is better for you!

    Glad you got to spend some time with Tyler, at least. He is getter bigger and cuter all the time!

    Take care!


  16. sound much like me! lol You need a frame for that picture of Chloe!

  17. OMG you have had a rough week! The donkey is hysterical, that photo made me laugh out loud! Hopefully you topped off your week by seeing your little guy, he's perfect medicine. Have a good weekend, and be careful!

  18. My goodness you poor thing! Maybe it would be best if you just stayed in a chair all weekend until the week was officially over? LOL You poor thing, I hope you don't hurt to badly.. OK Chloe? Is hysterical! and Tyler is beautiful :)

  19. WOW! When it rains, it really does pour! They say things come in three's and by the sound of it, you got more than your fair share! I hope this week is uneventful for you: no falls, no stings, no cuts and no escapees. I hope you have plenty more laughs. I certainly enjoyed the 'moose ears' on your donkey. Very, very cute!

  20. Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry about all your injuries. Hope they heal well and soon. Difficult week indeed. But you have all your animals to help you feel better! And Ginger and Mary Ann's adventure and mischief were a bit of a distraction. :) Have a good (considering all,) weekend. Sweater weather has arrived here too!

  21. I think you need time out Bev and and some TLC... Oh I am so sorry, you really did it!
    I love Chloe's impression of a moose. Now that is funny!
    Hope you feel better soon.
    Take care,
