Then the Farmer Went to Bed

Oct
24


In between the first time we captured Glory Bee and the second, we moved sheep. I was so confident that moving the sheep would only take 30 minutes that I put a loaf of bread in the oven.


It was true. It only took 30 minutes to move the sheep and I was right back in the kitchen to take the bread out of the oven.

Only.

I was (apparently) so discombobulated by capturing Glory Bee–then having her escape–and getting ready to go down to move the sheep–that when I turned the oven on, somehow I turned it on broil.

I threw the loaf into the goat yard. Coco nailed it, but had to swallow it in a couple giant bites to keep it from the competition.

I was going to make steak and shrimp, but sorta gave in to my day and just made some diced shrimp and onion pizza.

And then I went to bed early because I was so tired after capturing Glory Bee twice.

More as soon as I wake up and can……… (Including a bit of Glory Bee ANGRY VIDEO.)

    I really don’t know where you get all your energy from normally – so no wonder you were off to bed. I’ll bet Glory Bee sleeps well too though! :yes:

    That’s too funny about the broil setting! I hope Coco’s tummy is okay! :) Love the shot of the sheep and dog butts…

    Bless your heart! Your post brought to mind the old saying: Haste makes waste. But, believe me, I totally understand. I couldn’t do half of what you do. So, where are the sheep now? Back in your meadow closer to home? (I bet Coco wishes you would move the sheep more often so you would burn some more bread for her treat.)

    Looking forward to the ANGRY VIDEO.
    Rest up, then give us more treats.
    Maybe not(so sad ’bout the)burnt bread.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
