I just have to laugh at my expectations vs. the reality of farm life sometimes.
Phone call from Josiah- "Can you come out to the shop and hold something for me."
Me- "Sure." What I think that means is hold something in place for about 10 minutes max. then be free to go finish what I had been doing.
One and a half hours later, I find myself perched on top of a fertilizer tank holding a giant hose wearing gloves and safety goggles (working on my tan I guess), mixing up the contents of the tank, thinking about how funny the situation was. Not a hard job, but I should ask for more specifics next time. What Josiah asks and what I expect are not at all the same sometimes.
In other news, we started planting our corn today! And I am an aunt, about a month earlier than expected, but everyone is doing well and everyone is super excited!
