Running

It’s supposed to start raining tomorrow and not quit for several days. That means I have A-LOT of work to accomplish today.

A.LOT.

Plus, my best friend in the whole world, a woman I’d like to emulate but I’m too much of a goofball, has made a call out to her readers to post a link to a picture of our desks…..where we write…..where the inspiration just comes flowing out of our fingers onto the screen. We are to post a picture here:Ā thekitchensgarden.com/2016/04/11/where-do-you-write/Ā 

But I have to get there before I can send her MY snap shot. And it’s supposed to rain. Tomorrow.

Did I say I have A-LOT to do today before it starts to rain.

DID I TELL YOU IT’S GONNA RAIN TOMORROW!

AND MAYBE RAIN THE NEXT DAY.

AND MAYBE THE NEXT! I have to get busy!

I have to RUN!

Planting seeds for hardy greens….Bright lights Swiss chard, Russian kale, Lacinato kale, curly Scotch kale….. in the fading evening light.

Hurry, it’s going to rain tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow.

And it’s late and still Ms. C does not have a picture of my writing space.

Almost there.

Almost done.

Run! Run!

Wait! I see it!

Aaah. There it is.

A room with a view. A south facing window where I can keep an eye on the animals and an ear to their happy singing. A place that is shared with high school students, college students, a wonderful husband.

A happy place. Our writing spot.

Now it can rain.

 

 

Today’s count: 39 eggs. 2.5 gals milk

Unseasonably sunny and warm. High 71. Low 30. Mild wind out of the south east.

 

PS: I sneaked out to peak at the weaning piglets very early this morning, before true light. And they were all piled on top of and snuggled into each other. No signs of distress without momma. Good.

  1. What a lovely, inviting space to finally arrive at after such a day… mine often leave me tired by the time the light is gone but I’m exhausted simply reading yours šŸ™‚

  2. Sounds like a lovely life, and with a comfy place to pull yourself together at the end of the day. I love your daily ‘count’, and wonder if you end up with 3 dozen eggs every day and, if so, what in the world you do with all of them. And your photos are great — a very satisfied looking piggie in the header. Thanks. ~ Mame šŸ™‚

  3. After days like yours, that’s definitely an “aaaaaahhhh!” chair. A small place of your own to let your thoughts catch up with your racing body, filter it all internally, and let it out in words. A beautiful space, a great photo of it. And I love your pigs and chooks šŸ™‚
