Meanwhile, Back On a Farm

The sign has returned to its natural place, in front of our home.  It was stored at the friends’ houses we stayed at after losing our rental farm.  It went to the shop and stood proudly out front, backwards, with the words “OPEN” painted on it.  I love the name Pumpkin Hollow Farm.  So, I painted over the OPEN sign on the back and brought it home.  It’s good to be back.

The other day we busied ourselves with chores.  Oh chores, how we missed thee!  Doug hung a clothes line for me, I washed and hung two loads of laundry, he mulched the tree he just planted, I painted pumpkins on the mailbox, and he attached the sign.  It’s really good to be back.  I can’t wait to see the pumpkins growing…
