It’s been a morning. We’re at the end of summer. Lucy, Otto and Minty are beginning to run out of good vibrations. My youngetst most perfectest baby has decided that one nap is the new two naps and while Daddy is away she’s going to stay up through the morning and afternoon thank you very much. But the kids are getting along now, Zélie is sleeping and the cows are beginning their afternoon munch after a looooong rumination. You can start to feel fall in the air.
Michael is back with a new band member! But more importantly with his addition of a superb tea towel (see dish towel) I think I’m now beginning my new collection of superb tea towels. Our Scottish farmer friend started it all with a lovely little number including bagpipes. Michael’s contribution is … well … I’m speechless. It wasn’t long ago that success was measured in the production of your very own action figure. It would come out lifelike and looking just like you. Now, I think I’ve got my fame set on tea towels. It’s great to have Munson and Michael back on the farm along with Gustav (the new band member).
Kevin has shoveled shit. I’m feeling the need to create some sort of “I shoveled shit on Brent and Jean’s farm” t-shirt as a little parting gift for visitors. His shit shoveling will be much enjoyed, as this is the spot for our veggie garden. Now that I’m not pregnant or moving house or nursing a newborn or remodeling or starting a business or helping Brent get a cow herd on the farm or fencing, I can start our veggie garden. It’s close, but not too close to the house. There is shelter from wind. Water is close by. I think it’s going to be great. We have another patch much further away that I’m hoping to use for large sprawling things. The shit Kevin has shoveled is aged cow dung from a year and a bit ago. You should see the life in that shit!!!
…. k. gotta run, the kids are saying that there’s a wiggly, snakey thing in the house or it could be a lizard … eek! also, very important- how many fingers do Smurfs have!? Back to work!
