Little pigs springing from their beds

Little pigs springing from their beds

                                                        December 9, 2012

     Yesterday, when I caught the piglets napping, I rattled the door. I just wanted to see that all was well. They sprang from their beds, when I made the clatter, to see just what the heck was the matter 😮

     Seventeen piggies scrambled out of the straw. They looked like little Keystone Cops as they banged into each other in fright. Once they knew it was me, they were more annoyed than scared. I guess I can’t blame them either!

     I think it was probably the same feeling for the pigs as when I wake up startled, thinking that I missed the alarm. It may have been more like a large bang in the night, or a ruckus made by cows as they run past the bedroom window in an escape attempt 😮  All I know is…. those little guys were rattled.

     Warm , unseasonable weather continues to hang around us. Today,  I will finish every job that I was worried about getting done before winter. I even snuck in a couple of extra things. I am pleased to be able to concentrate on the wash-house and cutting 2014 firewood for the sugarhouse. Horse work now becomes fun and there will be lots of that.

     I woke with a start this morning… bounded out to the kitchen and had breakfast. I sat there thinking just how lucky I am to be caught up on my work. I put the pencil to paper and started a new list…I am now busy again 😮

… Just the way I like it.
