Farm Logo and Other Farm Occurrences
Last night my son finished his drawing of our new farm logo. It was a gift to me.
He typically draws me something for Mother's Day, and this year, it was Mazda. Now, I just need to have it framed.
~Other Farm Occurrences~
The raccoon made another appearance last night. I did not hear back from the wildlife professionals, so we set a trap. If we catch it, I guess I will have to call animal control to send someone to pick it up.
Although days are long here this planting season, I am slowly getting it all planted. Between watering, planting, and yard work, I do have to let house work go most days. I am just too tired to finish it.
Yesterday, I did get cucumbers, two types of squash, and some flower seeds planted, and watered it all. I still have more seeds to plant - radishes, pok choi, swiss chard, and kale.
I managed to get zucchini muffins and a nice dinner made as well. On top of all that work, my 16 year-old still needs about 10 hours of driving before she can take her driver's test. So...every day after school, we run a few errands, and try to squeeze that into my day too. Not much crocheting is getting done these days.
One last note:
While playing around with the computer chair after dinner (I was spinning around like a kid would), my 19 year-old said, "ugh Mom, you better not do that, or you will fall back and hit your head and then we'll have to go the ER and then I'll have to explain it to your husband."
Just minutes after I walked outside later, I see my son and 16 year-old walking from the goat/chicken barn. My daughter was holding her head, and my son said, "uh, Mom I think we need some gauze or something."
She had been chasing Rue, one of her goats, spraying him down with fly spray, when she smacked her head into a part of the barn. Luckily, she did not need a visit to the ER but there was a lot of blood, and a very bad head ache from it.
