It is Farm Friend Friday. It is also Good Friday.
It is a beautiful day here today. Unlike some years
when it is cloudy, cold and rainy. I am going to go buy
a dishwasher today. So that is all that is on my mind
this morning. I do not want to buy a dishwasher but
my husband said that today is the day. He is tired
of seeing dishes to be washed and dishes that are washed.
I think with having the lawn mower be broke for so long and
the grass just kept growing and it looked worse and worse.
I mean our fence got broke that was a sick feeling, but we got
that fixed. Then the lawn mower broke, the dishwasher broke
at Christmas. The weed eater broke last weekend. My faucet in the
kitchen started spraying out the top where water isn't supposed to
spray. My vacuum has to be propped up against the wall when
you stop it because the thing that holds the handle is broke.
So with all of the lessons we have learned. The first lesson is
change the oil. Pay attention to the little details. The next lesson
is in life, constant use just will wear things out. Just go buy a new one
I am telling you a deep secret here. I did lay hands on the dishwasher
hoping that it would be healed. Another thing I have learned is
prayer doesn't replace common sense.
I found this little book I had on a shelf and the author put in her
story that I thought fit so well.
This is from a book entitled "Normal is just a setting on the dryer."
By Adair Lara
" I was putting ointment on a deep scratch from having tried to toilet
train the cat. I had bought a kit for this purpose, a cardboard ring that went over the toilet
bowl that the cat used during the potty-training phase.
How much stranger can ordinary life get than feline toilet training? Which did not go well,
as she fell through the cardboard, she leaped out of the toilet, soaking wet. I grabbed,
her and 10 terrified claws sank into the tender flesh of my arm.
So , for the things I wish I'd known, When the instructions on the flimsy plastic cat-toilet-trainer
say, " The cat must weigh no more than twelve pounds."
Weigh the cat."
So life is made up of tiny things that give us things later to go laugh about and we do forget
about the hard work and just remember the funny things.
I am joining farm friend Friday and I thought I would have some chicken pictures today
but this is what came out of the key board this morning. Stop by and give all of those wonderful
ladies a visit.
