|31 Days of Life on Our Farm!|
This morning when I got up, I saw on twitter the buzz about "31 Days". It took me a moment to remember what exactly that was. Then I realized it was October. End of the months, and First of the months are busy for me. I am a property manager and real estate investor with my husband. We also have a farm. At the end of the month, I am trying to make sure all the rent is collected, and any evictions that have not paid are forwarded to my attorney. The first of the month, I am trying to shove rent money in the bank as fast as I can gather it up. We have mortgages to pay, you know!
So somehow I forgot that it is October now. I guess because it is Saturday, and I didn't have to think so fast today. When I noticed all the talk about 31 Days, I went over and looked at the links. I tried to think of what topic I would write about if I were going to participate. I really need to work for 31 days on "putting my husband first" or "letting my adult children go" or something like that. My husband would say I need to working on "keeping a cleaner house".
I am not a computer geek. When I tried to link to the host site the first time, my button process didn't work very smoothly. No photos popped up, so I chose a photo of our farm sign. I thought a template would come up, because most of the buttons looked the same. I never saw that. Somehow my first button didn't work because the address was wrong. So I made a second one, using my real blog button. Since my button says "My Real Farm Life" I guess that narrows down what I will write about. Life on our farm. For thirty-one days, I will tell you what we do each day on our farm. I may still throw in a little about how I will try to remember to put my husband first, like a good Biblical wife. Or how I am going to make our kids solve their own problems, as I was told I need to do. And I WILL get this house clean before company comes from Texas on an unknown mystery date in the next month or so. (That is how they do it in Texas, I guess. They tell you ahead of time they will be coming soon. Then they call and tell you they will be here in 3 days. The next thing you know, they are having dinner in a town an hour away! But we always have a good time when they are here, and if they notice my dirty house, they don't tell me.)
I hope you all stop by and keep me accountable on this new journey for me. I hope to see you back here tomorrow! Today on the farm, we will be making grape juice to can, and moving cows. I'll write more about that later. I just wanted to post something quickly in case you stopped by. I hope you stop by! Honey
