Summer Helper

In a great piece of good news, I have a new helper this summer. Kyle is the son of my minister. He is 23, bright, and a natural with machines. He is unexpectedly at home and without a job, so available to work for me six hours a day, 2-3 days a week, between rain showers.

Kyle has proved to be a godsend. Although I like to mow, myself, being able to hire Kyle to mow has freed my time for other chores. (Since the summer list is six single-spaced typed pages, and includes items such as “paint the house,” this is a good thing.) He is someone to share the dismal tasks — we just finished mucking the deep bedding from the 10′ x 32′ sheep stall — and to be another pair of hands and eyes when I’m attempting anything heavy or tricky.

I’m excited to see how much we can get done by Labor Day.

    Great news! Is that your pasture?

    It’s Betty’s pasture, down the road, where I keep my sheep for the summer. My pasture is more weeds and rocks. 😉

    I had sort of thought it must be Betty’s pasture, but hope springs eternal. xoxo
