hay day

I've never felt comfortable standing idle while other people work.


When the work being done is my work...even more so. 


 Sometimes, though, there are things that MUST be done,
at a time when I CANNOT do them.

And at a time like that, when - for example - I can no longer delay getting in as much of the winter hay as possible, and an entire squad of my hay man's family members not only delivers but also stacks the hay for me...


Well, all I can do is count my blessings,
thank everyone from the bottom of my heart,
and stay out of the way til it's time to write the check.

All weekend I've been puttering around getting little things done, but the most satisfying "achievement" was getting that hay in...and I didn't lift a finger.

Funny, that.
I don't know if this means I should be worrying about how much longer I'll be fit to carry on with this goatherding way of life, or if I should just be finding more ways that other people can do all my work...
while I enjoy the totally undeserved afterglow of achievement!

I hope your weekend was productive and satisfying, with or without hay.
