Work is a BLESSING

Hope everyone had a wonderful and memorable Thanksgiving.  We traveled down to the farm and spent time with both sides of the family.  I had all my kids, their spouses and my grandson for the Holiday.  We had such an amazing time.  I took advantage of all the "help".  Well, with only standing room in the little red house we needed something to do other than stepping on each others toes.
I promised they could have Thanksgiving Day off and then it was work, work, work for the next couple of days.
 We went deep into the mountains after a big load of wood,

 watched the most beautiful pinto and line-back-dun mustangs run through the brush with their long tails and manes flowing in the wind, honked before we went over every cattle-guard, about 10 of them, to warn the troll's so we wouldn't run over their fingers.  My cute little daughter in-law insisted we honk ( she sure fit's in with our crazy bunch)
                                                      we laid pennies on the train tracks

                                                              and danced on the rails




                     We hand- tilled the gardens after digging out all the sunflowers and weeds.
                              Cleaned out the big greenhouse and planted garlic and onions.



Collected seeds of chard, purple and white heirloom carrots, aragula and lettuce.
 Played basketball, trimmed the goat's hooves, moved the buck in with the does, cooked almost non-stop and had the best slumber parties with all the family wall to wall on the floor.......remember, it is a little house.
Made cookie s'mores outside after dark in the freezing cold, but warmed by the fire, and even had time for a game of scum.
Whew, I'm exhausted.
  And then we had to leave the serenity and peace (and relaxation) of the farm and travel in bumper to bumper holiday freeway  traffic for hours and hours, but it was worth it. 

                                                                     I  am truly BLESSED.
                                                           Too many blessings to even count!
