Yesterday Camera House sat on his Camera Table and sulked. He was not brought out to play at all.
At 6am yesterday morning I was over at the big barn to the West and Marcel was on the wrong side of the fence. It was pouring with rain. So I brought them all back in to their corner of the barn and shut the gate so they could all relax for a bit. Then I felt sorry for the calves and brought them in the other side to dry off for a bit.
Then back home and a quarter of the day was spent packaging books. Then another quarter of the day we took over the Post Office, everyone had a job, each in our corners and without too much hassle an hour or so later all the bags were weighed and many were weighed and sent.
This job certainly fell into the right time of the year, when I have the time and the help. Thank God for the Postmistress. What would I have done if they had taken our Post Office away.
I hope I have got it right. I have to admit to being a little overwhelmed. There is the fear that I have got something wrong in the book even though I KNOW it is wonderful (I hope you can write a review on Amazon after you read it, hearing what you think will be so good) and then the fear that I am messing up the orders. Hopefully all the packages get to their rightful owners. Luckily I still Have Jess, Elise began her travels further South.
Then another quarter of the day was spent driving all the way over to the feed store, then to the supermarket (having no cow to milk means I have to shop every now and then) then back home again. Everything is SO far away.
In the next quarter I get a text from the neighbour .. are the calves and the sheep meant to be out all together. Um, No. So I drove through the rain and there they were all out in the paddock, happily munching.
I went into the barn and discovered that the connecting door between the sheep and cows had been taken off its hinges and, still chained to the hook, it was leaning wonkily on the wall. It was dinner time and the pots were still cold so I decided to leave well alone. I can sort them out today. I used the time to take Tima for her walk, and deal with the pigs and chickens and so forth.
In the last quarter I did the chores, made the dinner, loaded the washing, then the dishes, then all the orders for today trying not to mix them up and sorted the packages to send. Then off to bed.
What do you mean that is five quarters. Doesn’t everyone have five quarters in their day?
I hope you have a lovely day.
