The past few days have been exceptionally busy, even for me. With my guy gone (for the last four days) I was handling everything from the house and dogs to the llamas and horses (including our new boarder). And that was on top of preparing for vacation, hammering out the details of an aircraft sale, and all the normal house chores, like dishes and laundry. We did get a $60 city code citation (apparently our grass was too long at the Heights house) while he was gone, and the sump pump stopped working without me noticing (so the basement at the Heights house flooded…a little), but those issues aside, I would say that I successfully negotiated the craziness. Mostly. I mean, everyone is alive and well. And I had help.
For the past few days, I’ve stolen Jeremiah’s little sister (who is still in high school) and dragged her out to the farm with me. She loves the horses and the llamas, and they love her. Plus, the feral barn cat (who I aptly named Will Ferrell (Feral) because you get to say things all day like “Will Ferrell is peeing in the garden again” or “Has anyone seen Will Ferrell in the barn today?”) has befriended her and lets her pet him. He will let no one pet him.
Despite all of the relative craziness, we’ve gotten a lot done. Cleaning the runs outside of stalls, planting, and finishing up a good chunk of my tack room…the two of us have been busy bees! (Side note, I’ve decided I’m keeping her. She is a lot of fun to have around and so helpful!)
The last few days:
New shelves for the tack room.
A new kitty tree for the tack room.
Oh – And this!
And now I’m off again! There’s plenty to do at the farm before we leave tomorrow (and I’m still working on that sale), but, starting tomorrow, I have a few days of vacation from everything. I cannot wait!
