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,
we laid pennies on the train tracks
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!
