My Princess (Pam) brought her three, handsome Princes (Josh, Matt & Nick ~ my Grandsons) out to spend a day visiting and helping Grandma. I must admit, I was a bit concerned about how hardy my boys would be ~ they were all complaining about how COLD it is in my house! (I do keep my thermostat at 50 all winter and have actually shut it off now) Each of the boys was wrapped in one of my shawls (over their jackets or sweatshirts) as we ate lunch.
But I've got to tell you, those boys can WORK!!! They jumped right into picking up walnuts out of the backyard. I've got TONS of walnuts! They are a health risk when I'm walking around the yard!!
Pam and Nick carried water buckets while Matt helped me feed the sheep.
Somehow, they managed to overcome their fear and gobbled up the hay that Matt put out for them.
Matt & I raked up two big piles of hay in the bred ewes paddock and burned them.
I bought a beautiful wind chime a couple of weeks ago and finally got that hung up on the new barn.
The sound is SO beautiful!!
I put together my 'mini' Greenhouse!
That's a 50 pound bag of barn lime, on the bottom shelf, to keep it from blowing away in the wind.
All in all, a GOOD day's work! And I had SUCH a wonderful time with my daughter and my Grandsons. We got SO much work done. I still can't believe that Josh got all the walnuts picked up out of the yard. That is the worst job!! Bella says: "Thank you, Josh!!"
"Thank you PAM, Josh, Matt and Nick for all the hard work you did! It was a BIG help for Mom and she even had time to sit and snuggle with me and the girls for a while!"
This post took me way too long to put together. I'd better get my butt in gear or I'll be late for work! Happy Easter Everyone!!!
