I am feeling rather giddy this week...
and so full of energy!
Arising before 5, I start my days early...
out of the house and out to the barn to watch the sun come up as I tend to morning chores.
I've been finishing chores before 7:15 these days,
which leaves a whole lot of morning left for other things!
I've washed all of the bedding in our room and the guest room...sheets
and pillow shams and quilts...
all dried on the line.
Mmmmmm....everything smells outdoor fresh!
It's easier to move about the farm without the burdens of winter coats and quilted pants and boots.
It makes me feel about 10 pounds lighter!
This week's beautiful weather has given me the opportunity to catch up on chores
that have been neglected for a few months, like...
trimming the pigs feet.
As long as they are on their side for "belly-rubbing",
it's quite easy to trim hooves.
What you don't see in these photos is Amanda rubbing and rubbing and rubbing,
as I snip, snip, snip.
Of course we have help.
Sweet Bobby...always in the midst of any activity!
