Constant

If there is only one constant in Farm life it is that there is always work to do.

Doesn’t matter the season.
Work on the Farm never ends.
Today, I working on a few different things…

1. Working on getting the library sorted out so I can get the seed starting stand brought upstairs.
See, my problem with it being in the basement is I forget about the seedlings. So they don’t get watered nearly enough, and they all too often die. Last year, I started seeds 3 times…LOL!!
This year, I hope to only start them once. 😉
The library is a big job though…

2. I’m starting my pepper seeds.
If I wait until the library is done, it will be too late to start peppers. They take a long time to germinate, and they grow slower than tomatoes.
So, it’s time.
I have a hanging lamp over one of the shorter bookcases in the library where the tray will sit until the work is done. Then the tray can sit on top the plant stand, while the tomatoes get going under the lights on the shelves.

3. Editing pictures.
Because thousands of pictures on the hard drives/flash drives.
And, because I’ve been out taking more images lately.
It’s taken some time (14 weeks, yesterday) for me to come close to feeling normal enough to not fall apart grabbing the camera and going out into the pasture.
Now, when the smallest urge tickles me, I’m trying to go with it. Encouraging myself to let the camera take me where it wants to go, encouraging the healing process.

This is what drew me out to the pasture yesterday:

Napping in the sunshine…

“I know you’re there, Food Lady.
I also know you don’t have cookies, so I ain’t movin'”

Lol!
Fine by me. I didn’t want her to move. 😉

And then there’s this one…because yesterday my Kid turned 17.
*sigh*
Things that make a woman feel old…
Grey in her own hair, greying muzzles on beloved animals, and Kids growing up.

Kid and her Sable ❤

    Such beautiful photos. Ruby gave me a giggle. I am certain you will always have joyful and sad memories when you visit the pasture. Happy birthday to your daughter. Hugs, Janet

      Thank you. ❤
      Ruby is such a card, it's easy to imagine her saying exactly that.
      Thank you for the birthday wishes too…I've passed them on to her. 🙂

  3. A Beautiful thing is that in your first post about your Kid and Sable it is completely ambiguous which of them is turning 17. Best Wooshes to both.

      I hadn’t realized that, so I went back to read it.
      After much thought and discussion with the Kid, we’ve decided that since we don’t actually know how old Sable is, or her birth date, they will share both the day and their age.
      So, my thanks for pointing out the ambiguity, because it made for something extra special for Kid and equine to share. 🙂

    The work never ends. I was raised on a dairy farm so I know all about that. It’s a labor of love though. Especially with all the beautiful horses. A huge Awww.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

      My Hubby always says it’s either a labour of love or the work of crazy people. lol I think both apply. 😉
      But the horses do (sometimes) make the work a little easier to handle.
