NO FRIEND OF MINE~

So...blogger has not been my friend lately...completely rejected my posts...or published a post with a photo and no text...so my friends I shall give it another try: Here is a Dog Trot Farm update: Winslow Homer is in fine health, or shall I say holding his own with a quality to his life, he may be old and he may be blind, but he is a fighter. Sadie Mae, has evolved from an introverted kitty, into a five pound ball of fire...a perfect addition to our household. My flock of chickens are all getting along, who knew? fourteen hens and two roosters, everyone appears happy...however, Gladys has been panting and Beatrix has a swollen eye...hot humid weather and insects appear to be the culprits...There have been flowers gardens to prune and a vegetable garden to weed...jam to make and produce to can...there is always a structure to paint: house, shed, coop, you name it...and of course it is prime lawn mowing season...and don't forget the weed whacking...so like most of you, we stay busy...lately however, I have been lax in most all of my duties...I admit, I have been a "slacker" when I hear the words "somebody wants to see his granny" or "would you mind watching Travis?" I say honey you don't need to ask twice, granddad and I will be right over...what a pair Mr. Dog Trot and I make, this little guy has us wrapped around his little finger... we may not find time to accomplish all our chores, but we always find time for Travis, ya we've even been known to fight over him...we're pretty lame, but we sure are having fun! I do hope life is treating you well, I'm looking forward to catching up with all of you...greetings from Maine, Julie.

What a lovely post! So glad to know it just is the lovely part of being a grandma. I am burnt to a crisp right now because mine all wanted to swim with me today. Did I say get out? Didn't I have things that needed to get done? Who cares, I know how fast they grow up now. I know you do too. Have fun.

Completely understandable. Reminds me of the poem....cleaning and scrubbing can wait til tomorrow, for babies grow up we learn to our sorrow... After all, those chores aren't going anywhere. :)

They are little for such a short time. Grab all the moments you can. Weeds, and peeling paint can wait. He is soooo cute

The chores will always be there tomorrow, but by then Travis will have grown a day...and you can't get that back. Enjoy him and don't you feel guilty about it. He sure is sweet, how can you help yourself? ~Vonnie
