For my very important daily dawn date with you.
I am late for two reasons. This morning I had to sit on my hands and let John go out and do the whole mornings chores without me hovering. The milking, the feeding, everything. He will do the weekends while I am away and wanted to do it all alone in case he missed something. He was fine.
I still hovered, but at the window, resisting the impulse to throw it open and call out into the dark: Don’t forget this or Don’t forget that. It was distracting. I could not settle. But I had to stay out of the way.
The second reason: As you know, yesterday we drove up to the Big City. On the way back we were caught in horrendous traffic jams. Perfect driving weather but people still crashing into each other. So we did not get home until way after dark and no photos were taken yesterday. Thank goodness for the well trained Surrogate Milkers who did the afternoon chores perfectly.
So it appears that everyone is on course to take over. I can be replaced. This is good. I think transparency is paramount where animals are concerned. Everyone should be able to do everyone else’s job. Now I can stop worrying! yeah right….
Good morning. I did have time to file my Nanowrimo draft yesterday and get the applause and the badge. The 25th was the first day available to verify your word count. My novel is shrinking now as I begin to rewrite the work, taking out all the extraneous material first. It is linear and one dimensional, but works. There is lots to do, which is kind of exciting too.
I am fairly sure just about any of you could have done this.
I am keeping my badge small. But there you are – everyone is a winner! I like that. Everyone likes to be a winner.
I might do a walkabout on the farmy today with Camera House, so we all get up to date again.
Have a lovely day.
