Just give me that countryside!

Wednesday, June 20th, 2007

I have been trying to channel my hero for the last couple of days. It’s something I’ve been doing a lot lately. It’s the only way I can convince myself that I’m being a good farm wife, and that life at Green Acres – I mean, Hummingbird Farms, is the place I want to be.

I find so much comfort in Oliver's love for Lisa:

I took a dirt bath this morning. Yes, once again there is dirt in our water due to rain. Soaking in brown water just doesn’t make for a relaxing bath. However, due to the terrific mentoring of Lisa, I’ve learned I can just add lots of bubble bath and then you don’t know the difference.

Lisa and I have so much in common. Jack's love for me is so much like Oliver's love for Lisa:



To top off my relaxing bubble dirt bath, the door knob fell off in my hand as I opened the door to leave. But that’s okay. I’ve learned how to use all objects for a purpose – just like Lisa used to do. You know, kind of like how old roof shingles spread with peanut butter can provide great fiber to your diet.

Waste not, want not.

I’m sure the door knob won't be wasted. Oliver – I mean Jack, will put it to good use. Maybe a paperweight or something.

Seriously, it’s all okay.

Okay, the construction may be getting to me.

But, I still get to wake up to this every morning:


Green Acres - I mean Hummingbird Farms, IS the place I'd rather be!
