Is this what farming is all about?



How typical, I start a blog to tell about all the wondrous and strange things that happen here and then....................... nothing happens!

Apart from the usual morning tour of herds to look for new babies and to make sure everyone is happy and content.
Having found all my darlings and then checked that the grass was to wet to go weed cutting, I decide - no tractor work today.

So off I go to do some work in the house. I only moved into it three weeks ago so it is a total mess!
Job 1............ put up curtain poles in spare room.......no problem.

Job 2............put up new curtains in spare room......... no problem.

Job 3 ..........."gather curtains"........ what is that all about?


So picture this.........am sitting on the floor of the spare room, reading instructions........"pull 3 strings to obtain required gathered curtain width"..........no problem.

Question 1 .........What does one do when one pulls the three strings completely out of the curtain? Apart from curse!

Question 2 .........Is this what farming is all about?

I think it's curtains for your curtains, darling!

It's "gather ye rosebuds", not curtains:)
I would have been flummoxed, and would have spent the remaining part of the day with the horses.
Good luck with the new house. It will be home in no time, curtains or not.

I'm still back here at 12 July looking at the picture of this beautiful mare who is hiding a baby - at least that is the way I'm seeing the picture ... if I ever get a farm here in the states, I'll fulfill my dream to travel to Wales and to have a Gypsy van simply by visiting you and Jackie!

I hope the curtains have worked out for you. I had a similar experience with pleats and hooks, and then my daughter introduced me to "tabs." Much easier ...
