What did you do today?

Oh I bet I had more fun then you....

I fixed fence all day - YEAH!!!  See I told you I had more fun then you...

I forgot to take pictures - Sorry but I was just so excited to get out there and get to work that I completely forgot to impress you with pictures.  It is also really hard to rewire and stretch wire while snapping pictures.  Also was not sure if I wanted to risk the camera in the pens with the billie boys who are very mouthy right now and I had to keep one eye tracking them all the time while using my other eye to make sure I did not hit my hand with the hammer. 

I admit I was a bit slow on getting out there this morning but like always with me the moment I step outside and get going I am in pure joy and loving every minute of the work.  It also helps that I have so many watchful eyes on me.  No room for slacking and always great company while the hours pass.  Today was also wonderful because Dot (the little llama boy) was out with me and his desire to learn everything I do kept me inspired to do more.  I had to put Big Llama Boy up into a pasture on the opposite side of the farm because apparently the neighbor have two llama's over at their place - not sure why, for how long or if they are going to train them but it threw this farm into a mess.  That meant Dot could be in the unfenced area with me - Yeah!!! 

It is also tons of fun to work with the bottle kids.  Each one trying to take the fence staples from the can while I am hammering, or how each one nibbles on a different section of  my pants each time I take a step and best of all the tons of kisses I get when I bend over - I told you my work is great....

After 5 hours of fence work, 2 hours of barn work it was time to head in.  I have a great home cooked dinner awaiting, the heating pad warming up and PBS tonight - I may not live a life others would think worth while but for today I had a great day doing those things that place joy into my life.

So what did you do today??

Well I don't know, I did slam a couple new t-posts into the ground and put up a temporary gate, and couple panels, will finish tomorrow. But I did that earlier in the morning ... 82 degrees this afternoon. Buy hey it has cooled down from the 100+ we had beginning of the week.

We should have been building the goat stalls and such, but hubby was extremely tired from overtime this past week. I did do tons of laundry, got my rosehip dye bath ready for today, and did some knitting. It was cold outside, so winter may very well be on it's way in our area.

Sounds like you two gals put in a full day. Weather is changing and the chore list changes as well. Sounds like we checked a few things off and on to the next. THANKS for sharing ladies - always wonderful to hear from you. Makes me think I am not talking to myself.
