More kit

It is in the manner of running a farm of any size that one needs lots of equipment, both on the land, and in the kitchen. This is a drain on our resources,especially when the house  and dependencies still need money spent on them.

Often our heads are fuddled about where next to make a spend, and we make endless conversations about what to do, but then sometimes the decision is made for us, and we find ourselves making a purchase hardly without thought,
which happened the other day:

Cute, hey!
...and introducing our new milking stool, upon which Lester can perch when milking Elise, Blackie and Ice Cream.

Meanwhile, the weather has settled down, the weather forecast says sun all the way, which is good.

However, we are weeks and weeks behind with outside work, and instead of feeling  frustrated because we can't do any farm work, we are not swamped by everything which needs doing.The tasks are still April based. We have a lot of work to do. Methinks that this year, instead of being ten steps behind ourselves, we shall be thirty. Ah well, not to worry, everyone who works with the land will be feeling the same.  
It has been a hell of a year so far.

What a cute stool.
The sun is out here, too. Instead of feeling thrilled I feel overwhelmed with the number of jobs to do.
Hoe did I ever have the time to go to work?........

Hi Vera, it's been a hell of a year so far, here as well. So far we have not had any major flooding here in Edmonton, but south of us, has been a major disaster. Calgary's downtown was under water and still is in parts. Many towns south of Calgary are having the same problem. Today we, here in Edmonton are having heavy rain all day so far. I sure hope we get good weather soon, and you as well.

Now that is a great little stool.

Jean, it is often said that one is busier when one is retired than when one used to go to work!

Jessica, who? Lester or the cat stool?

Horst, I read your blog about how awful the flooding has been in your part of the world. I hope the weather stabilizes soon, and that you get some sunny weather.
That stool is cute, isn't it!
