We are certainly well and truly into farm-mode now!
Although it is officially spring, it’s still been pretty cold at night here. Which means keeping the fire lit. Which means firewood. LOTS of firewood. We seem to burn it faster than we can collect it, chop it, stack it, and bring it in. It’s a constant chore: The fire is hungry and constantly must be fed. Hubby just bought his first log splitter and tomahawk, and BOY have they been getting a work out! And so has he: Working out ‘Lumber Jack-style’!
I, too, am developing big callouses from shovelling clay aside in the garden, and carrying firewood to and fro. And splinters. Lots of splinters. Under my nails.
Note to self: Acquire some work gloves.
The other reason gloves maaaayyyy also be a good idea is that I am constantly wheezing and sneezing, and my arms are coming out in constant hives from carrying armloads of hay around the farm to the horses.
Yep: I’m allergic.
(Nope: I’m not joking.)
So has the novelty worn off yet?
…what do you think? 😉
