Wanted: Farm Hand
(would settle for just a finger, however!)
Yep, that's my index finger.
I tripped over our Newfie, Maddie, in the dark on Saturday evening,
fell...sending the plates that I was carrying smashing to the floor,
and ending up with a swollen, painful, broken finger.
(Sadly, I think my fingernail is a goner.)
This morning's farm chores will be a challenge.
Hopefully I will finish them in time to start the afternoon chores.
(One of you asked about the "down" side to farm life...well, this might just be "it"!)
But enough of that!
Other than the "incident", I had a wonderful weekend. Much of my weekend was spent
with my girls and Tyler.
|Muppy, Grammie and Tyler|
Tyler and his mommy, Jenn, arrived at the farm yesterday in time for Sunday Farm Breakfast
(a weekly ritual).
We visited the pigs,
fed the goats Ritz crackers,
filled the donkeys' water tub,
(it's never too early to learn farm chores)
cleaned the pasture,
carried "poopy" to the gator
(dropped some of it on the way...producing tears of disappointment in himself...
we assured him that we drop it all of the time!)
(Note to self: find child sized work tools!)
We helped Muppy (Hubbs) with moving some hay,
climbed to the top of the hayloft,
and read books.
What fun it is to finally be able to hold conversations with our little buddy!
A big, hearty "Thank You" to Amanda for helping with farm chores and cooking dinner yesterday!
(I was relieved of all duties for the day!)
Today our picnic pavilion and outhouse will be finished!
I can hardly wait to use them... both of them!
Adorable little farm hand . . . teaching youngins' young is a very good idea!
I hope the finger "ouch" is better soon!
That braided dinner looks and sounds absolutely awesome. Yum!
Share the recipe?
Of course it is amazing how our pain can ease when we have a little grandchild to play with. I'm sure he was lots of help!!
Ouch one more time!! Tell that finger to heal fast!
Sorry about the injury - funny how it is the routine things that get us - work on a farm, all manner of animals and equipment - but more often than not, it is tripping over a dog or cat that does us in!
I can tell, you all enjoy that young man...and what a wonderful setting for him...to grow in.
They look pretty decent - maybe not quite what you are using, but perhaps you could get him a wheelbarrow to carry the stuff
Sorry about the finger--it looks terribly painful. I hope it heals with relative speed!
