Farm life is work. At 5:15 a.m. we are up daily, that is seven-days-per week, we are up to milk and feed goats, barn cats and ducks. We can spend 8 to 10 hours on a days-off from work fending off the advances of weeds during the days we work. Stocking up the hay for goats means hauling 45 square bails of hay into the barn. Cleaning the barn seems to be hauling those same 45 bails of hay back out, either from what the goats toss and trample on the ground or turn into goat-pellets (aka garden fertilizer). But, work should have some whimsy. The we collect yard art. Turn a corner, while sweating with a wheel barrow full of stilt-grass and mugwort, and smile at some decorative item.
