36 in 24.....

 
This one is for Brenda...
 
Brenda wanted to move to Torquay
 
as she thinks there are 36 hours in a Torquay day!!
 
She can't believe how much our group gets done all the time...
 
 
Multitasking is the key BUT I don't recommend it...
 
Here was my Saturday...
 
6:00am 
 
 Eat while reading Blogs/emails
 
6:30
 
Sew up Bear Creek Row Robin 
and
 attach to quilt while watching Good Wife on Netflix
 
 
Ready to be mailed out...

 
Row 5 already!!
 
 
8:30
 
Head to field, take Arnold's place and start seeding



 
Dawson back on Bunny Watch...
 
 
10:30
Justin takes my place.
 
Do some gardening,help Arnold fix harrows and get him off,
then
 hang clothes since I have had NO DRYER for 6 WEEKS NOW!!!
 
(I am reeeeaalllly starting to hate SEARS!!! Whole other post...)
 
1:00pm
Throw chicken legs into oven for supper, clean the house a bit

 
2:00
Head back to the field, fill discers again, change fields and take Justin's place
 
3:00
PANICK!!!
Chicken legs!!!
 
Text Justin to go check...Power went out...oven shut off...
 
Justin makes them into a delectable teriyaki supper....
 
Saves the legs(and the day)!!
 
6:00
Justin comes back to take my place.
 
 Eat, shower amd head to opening car races

 
At Estevan Motor Speedway....
 
Season ticket holders don't miss a race!!
 
12:00am
 
Hit the hay!!
 
No problem sleeping in my world!!
(I just can't sleep IN,Tracey!!)
 
A freind said his wife had trouble sleeping at night....
 
I said you are not working her hard enough!!
 
For added bonus to my day....
 
I filled the graintruck with gas,
 
later to discover I had left the ONLY key to the gas tank on the running board

 
It travelled 20 dusty, bumpy miles
and
 thank my lucky stars.... it was still there!!
 
I had visions of side grinders and explosions to get that lock off!!
 
It definitely takes a village to keep this life on the path!!
 
It's a new day....let the adventure begin!!
(or is it more like...No rest for the weary?)
Christa

  1. I always enjoy looking at your quilting accomplishments but I think I like to have insight to your farming world even more. Such a busy time for you all.

  4. That's how you do it all! Two things are different in your life than mine. I need Justin to save the day. Has he ever aspired to live in Weyburn? If so, I have a bedroom waiting for him. Secondly, I don't see the part in your day where you put your nose in a "who dunnit" and quit reading three hours later thinking "where has the time gone"! Still dreary here this morning so maybe I'll get some sewing done.

    1. Justin recently introduced me to a new app called Spritz(?) that is supposed to allow you to read 700 words a minute!! Thats the only way I will ever find time to read a book!!

  5. You get my vote for "Superwoman of the Year"!! You get so much done in a day, it makes me look lazy. I love reading your quilt posts, but I also love all the farming. I live in a farming community as well....although I am not a farmer!
