First born son is coming by and building me a calf shelter....
Second born son is coming by and helping....
I have a full day of tilling, planting, fencing and relocating the new baby chicks to some new "Outside" digs.
I will start my Mothers Day today with hints for helping me with tilling, planting...fencing...and any other impulsive idea that I might just have today..
Oh yes...and help me move the new(to me) wood cook stove my darling sister gave to me last weekend. I am pretty excited about it and hope to very soon have it set up in my new hobby/work room of my new barn again the boys are going to build for me.....
It isn't the Vermont Bun Baker that I still dream about, but pretty close. Its the 1920's cast iron oven Wood stove with a beautiful intact icey grey/blue enamel with 4 burner plates complete wtih water reservoir and backsplash bun warmer in excellent condition. It needs a little rust removal but nothing is warped, broken or rusted through. Its Beautiful!! We use one exactly like this at the familiy cabin in the Black Hills. I already know how to cook a mean Turkey, Pot Roast and even fluffy cakes in one of these things and I am very anxious to crank it up this winter.
I suppose I better get those plans drawn up for my barn soon before the boys get busy with their own summer plans.
Sure wish Mothers Day came around once a month cuzz I'm not afraid to use it!
Nice thing is....my children don't really need much encouragement in treating their Mother right.
Seems we did some things right and raised some awfully nice kids.
Now on that stove...it brings to mind some weekends of cutting wood and stacking wood and hauling wood. Gosh am I glad I had 5 children!
