Ive been gone. Where was I, you ask? I was hanging out at Critter Farm and visiting with my great friend, Danni.
Traveling to see her is one of my most favorite things to do. And I am beginning to think that my stopping by has become one of their favorite things,too. How can I tell? Would it be by the showering of confetti and streamers? Nah....its much better than that. I can tell because they always have a list of things for me to do when I arrive. Thats how I know that they really like me.
This time I was entrusted to do many, many things. So many, in fact, that I wont even list them all here. But, I will be nice and show you a few.
I got to sweep out the barn.
Plant some tomatoes.
Harvest some very yummy candy striped beets.
They even let me use the clippers for several different tasks.
I got to plant some zucchini seeds. 2 different kinds.
And I got to watch Roxy swipe a strawberry right off the plant and then become a little confused on if she should be eating it or not...I think really she was just waiting for someone to cut it up for her.
I did not, however, get up on the roof to remove the pine needles.
Nor did I try to catch that really cool snake we saw.
All those chores were really fun. But lest I confuse you and make you think that all they had me do was work , work ,work...let me show you what else I got to do.
I had some one on one time with Pete and Reggie.
I sat by a really great campfire.
I got to take Pete and Reggie to pasture. Shhhh..I also sat there and watched them...I could have done that for hours.
I even got to watch Pete run and run and run...and then. Sleep.
And look what I got to take home for all my hard work.
Upon my return home I received word that I was not quite done with my chores after all. I was asked if I had planted my sweet, darling, baby Douglas fir trees.
And to that I can say, yes. Yes, I did.
