I should have....

I should have been digging in the veg plot today, after all Spring will arrive and with it the need to plant seeds. Instead I sat outside and did some crocheting. I said to myself that I was keeping an eye on the chickens. Ha! I was being lazy, that is what I was being. 

I should have been picking up the poo in the Sheep Barn today. Instead I leaned on the gate into the Side Field and watched Ice Cream chase after any ewe which happened to come within ten metres of her, Ice Cream being the smallest of the goats and this being her first day out on the field with her youngster.

I should been scything some grass so that the sheep, goats, and cow could have some for their supper, this being the time of the year when what they eat from the field has to be supplemented. This is normally done by giving them some of the hay I cut last year, but the stocks of hay are dwindling away frightfully fast, hence the cutting of fresh juicy grass. Instead I watched the clouds and sunshine play tag with each other up in the sky.

I should have stood in the middle of the lane, so that when Lester opened the gates of the Side Field and Paddock everyone would commute seamlessly between the two. Instead, I became diverted when Bools and Gus decided to help as well. Unfortunately this meant that Elise, our young heiffer, was able to wander off aways down the lane, and one lamb missed the Paddock gate entrance completely and refused to be caught for ages.

I should have been cleaning my floors. Instead, I sat down and knitted. 

I should have been working on my PC, writing the tome which will provide us with the means to live here without Lester having to worry about where his next day of work is coming from. Instead, I wandered off into YouTube and thence into a film, etc. 

I should have......
