This is what farm girls do.....



They go fishing when they want to be outside enjoying the new sunshine but they are not feeling up to pruning blueberry bushes, hanging laundry on the line, cleaning off the porches, cleaning up the flower beds, cleaning around the pond, painting the outdoor furniture, tearing down the pergola,cleaning out the root cellar, cleaning out the garage, making curtains for garage, cleaning out the chicken coop, cleaning out 2 goat barns, painting a goat barn, building a new goat barn (oops that's on his list) cleaning up all the broken trees and limbs in the yard from the bad winter storms, cleaning out the boat, deciding whether or not I can spray paint my stainless steel gazing ball, painting the concrete yard art, trimming goat hoofs, worming goats, cleaning the gravels out of the flower beds that the state highway dept pushed in there trying to clear my roads this winter, picking out new roses for the new pergola, (building the new pergola is at the very top of his list), wash the cars and the list goes on and on and on and on .................see why I went fishing this morning instead of working on this list. There is no end in sight!! Don't be jealous of me I didn't get a single bite!! I did see a lot of great big fish though!! I'll be back to get you soon!!

I'm sorry, I am completely jealous! :) Fishing is way worse when you do catch something, then you have to clean 'em and smell like fish and she is way too cute to mess up those clothes! :) When I grow up, I wanna be a farm girl! :)

I'm glad you felt well enough to go fishing! You have quite a to do list! You'll have to get your energy back really soon. Have a wonderful day!

Me and my farm kids like fishing too. As you can tell from Emma's big smile. Glad your feeling well enough to go to the pond all by yourself. Glad you didn't see any bears!!! Maybe we can fish this weekend some its supposed to be really warm.

Oh girls I wish you were all here to go fishing with me today, it sure would have been a lot more fun! I had fun anyway by myself. It was so peaceful and warm!!

Not as green as in the picture tho....hehehe....I guess I shoulda mentioned that this picture of Emma was taken back last summer!!!! Ooops, sorry!! It is getting very green and quickly, I'll be mowing soon enough!

So girls grab your poles and meet me at the dock at 7AM sharp! You bring breakfast!
