Yesterday was quite the opposite, Holly and her friend …um…Tyler..Tom…Travis arrived bright early and ready to work, The almost complete A team set off to work in high spirits, we were happy to have Holly back in our midst and even happier to meet her friend who has a smile and demeanour that made him fit in almost immediately….ever thought of being a Woofer Travis ? smile
The early morning chores were completed without me, I was confined to the house… again and I was less than happy to wave them all off to the barn but the cheerful team enthusiastically scooped and swept picked and dumped (poo that is). Holly was straight back into work and, if Travis had any ideas about a quiet peaceful day on the farm, young Holly will have put him straight in the first few moments. From the house I could see the cheerful couples scooting around with shovels and wheelbarrows ….while I watched enviously from the kitchen window…mental note, must clean windows!
The afternoon found the almost complete A team ( we miss you Quatre!) fencing. Lesley and Derek now quite proficient and very happy to employ their new found skills joined young Holly and Travis to pound fence posts and hang the wire. From the house on the hillside I could hear the thumping of the post pounder and the sound of cheerful chatter and happy laughter. The team were having fun and it was contagious. The completed fence looks great and muscles hurt but there was a huge sense of achievement as we settled to dinner last night….one of our own broiler chickens that the Woofer interns had processed. That’s how work should be, and we thank all the team for sharing their time with us and for all the projects that we have successfully completed.
Today we welcome Wesley to our ranch. We hope that she is going to enjoy her time with us and that she leaves with happy memories
Well, since the cuckoo clock is working again and everyone else has disappeared, I guess it’s time to get ready. Take care, keep safe, M
