Ruffled Feathers and Spilled Milk

Farming with ducks and dairy goats, chickens and children.

That Friday Feelin’.

Posted on | August 29, 2014 | No Comments

You know that Friday feelin’?

When you’re well rested, the first kids get on the bus at 6:30am, the last one gets on at 8:15am, and the whole day stretches out before you.

When The Other Half left the kitchen spotless and there are clean milk jars in the dishwasher.

When the trail of feathers in the barnyard makes you think Bella ate the guinea last night but she appears at the feed trough after all—-alive and gobbling breakfast (just covered in slobber and missing all her tail feathers).

When you’ve whittled down your To Do list all week long so all that’s left is “Schedule Dentist Appts” which you don’t have to do because there isn’t a dentist office anywhere that is open on Fridays.

When you stroll to the garden to check on the chicken-tilling and find out it’s moving along extremely well.

When you’re thinking about lunch with a friend, or a massage, or the entire afternoon spent in the new recliner finishing that novel.

And then you see it!  They’re everywhere!  You’re completely surrounded.  You can’t ignore it.  You can’t avoid it any longer.

And you know you’ll spend the rest of the day…….

CANNING.

And when you’re not boiling peeling, or sealing, you’ll be making pesto.

Good thing it’s Bet-You-Won’t-Play-It-Friday on the radio.  ‘Cause making tomato sauce goes great with I Hear A Rumor by Bananarama and Do Wah Diddy Diddy by Manfred Mann.

Oh, yeah.  There’s that Friday feelin’ again :)
