On the other hand, I seem to be attracted to the kind that require a little more work. This weekend, the plan is the use a Bobcat to scrape the barn floor completely clean and spread nice, clean dense grade rock all over the pens and the aisle way. I am unreasonably happy about this! (And, believe it or not, I can even think of a few other women I know who would have the same feelings.) So my weekend will be filled with manure and rocks! How about you?

You know that saying that you can learn something every day, whether you want to or not? That's me, nearly everyday. Just the other morning, I stepped out the back door when I let Ivy (our corgi) out and something on the porch post caught my eye. It was a "walking stick" insect, but I honestly thought it was just a bit of a branch from a nearby bush. Imagine my surprise when I started to brush it off and it stood up and fought back!! Yikes! I don't think I had ever seen one of these creatures "up close and personal". Reading about them here, I discovered that some people keep them as pets. That would certainly be the low maintenance kind.
