Hay...It's Not Just For Horses

Hay.
It's an integral part of life on the farm.
I spend a good portion of the day delivering it.


For meals...


breakfast...


lunch...


and supper...


for bedding...


And I spend a bit of time raking the wasted hay back up...


and spreading it in the chicken yard 


for footing.


So, it's no wonder that every evening when I change out of my work clothes,
I find hay inside every layer...
not to mention in my underwear!


I wear hay like most women wear jewelry.
There are usually hay leaves attached to my clothes,
just like Ollie has in his mane.


It's no wonder that I choose my outwear based upon what won't attract hay.


So, it's no wonder that I dreamed this silly dream yesterday morning as I was awakening...


I awoke with a start yesterday morning...
the memory of my last dream of the night still in my thoughts...
troubling.


You see, I dreamt that I was stopped on the interstate by a state trooper.
I had been driving quite tired and had swerved a bit.

He pulled me over fearing me intoxicated.
I rolled down the window as he approached,
and our eyes both caught the dried green hay leaves attached to my sweater.
The next thing I knew he was arresting me for the possession of marijuana.
"But officer," I tried to explain, "these are hay leaves...."

I awoke in a panic.
Thank goodness it was only a dream!
(I have never smoked marijuana in my life...so goodness knows from where this idea came.)
I am way too much of a control freak to give it up to a substance.

Hay... it's the stuff dreams are made of...
at least around here!

I spent a little time with this little Christmas Fairy yesterday...


She's almost 4 months old now!


And never too young for The Night Before Christmas!

Ha! I can really relate to your statement, "I wear hay like most women wear jewelry." I also choose my outerwear by whether or not hay sticks to it! And my number one criterion for choosing carpet or a rug is how easy it is to get cat puke out of. LOL! What we won't do to accommodate animals in our lives!
