Farm Routine...

really....

could things get any more hectic?!?...

oh...by the way...

have not decided on what kitchen island to get yet...

*thank you* for all the great input...

i'm really leaning towards #4 oh but #2 will definitely be coming along if i decide to order them...

she insists on coming to live on the prairie...

we've been up to our eyeballs in hay...

this was our routine the other day...

* 5:00 a.m. sprinkler changing
* 7:00 a.m. feeding chickens, doggie calves
* 7:30 a.m. grabbing cold pizza on the way out the door
* 7:45 a.m. saddling horses {husband and boys...girls are left behind once again...sigh...
* 9:00 a.m. clancey and i are out the door to run errands on our way to the shop...
* 10:30-6:00 sell farm finds in the shop...wishing i would have held on to some...
* 6:30 p.m. more sprinklers to change
* 8:00 p.m. feeding chickens, unsaddling horses, feeding doggie calves again {anyone want 5 doggie calves that you have to feed morning and night on a gigantic bottle?!?! they are super fun and in no way more work that a baby?!?! hello...anyone?!?} oh and we must not forget horses and dogs...
* 9:30 p.m. prairie girl looking in the fridge to see if there is anymore cold, day old pizza she can feed to the kids...nope all gone guess it's going to be cold cereal instead...
* 10:30 p.m. kids looking a little grungy...better schedule baths a week from today or maybe a trip to the pool?!?...
* 10:45 p.m. kids finally in bed minus pajamas...wonder when a laundry day will come up?!?!...
* 11:00 p.m. missed the news, guess i'll curl up with a good book {girl who kicked the hornet's nest..Must Read girls!!}
* 2:30 a.m. finish book and crawl into bed...
* 2:30 a.m. kick husband out of bed to go and bale hay...
* 5:00 a.m. start all over again...

boy i'll be glad when it gets dark at 5:00 and we have to sit and stare at each other's eyeballs for entertainment on a cold winters evening ;0)

anyways...

i was finally able to update the shop a little bit...

going junking again this week so hopefully more goods to come..

We'll take some! hehe My 13 yo son owns half of one of his uncles calf. He's saving up to buy a calf for his 4-H beef project next year as he is borrowing one from another member this year (we live in town!)
Love the baskets, and yes the plate especially because of the cowboy!

Wow, I am tired just reading this! You really do have busy days. Love the metal crate and basket.
Hugs, Sherry

Janean said...

i'm craving a metal basket to put me some bottles in!!! great find!

...and cowboys on anything, oh yeah!

Heidi said...

Well I used to want to live on a farm...now I'm not so sure! :)
I enjoy your pictures though. They always put a smile on my face.

Martha said...

busy indeed...I love your finds and pictures...very much so
xo

Cheyenne said...

Um,I'm exhausted reading this. Can't you just make the kids feed the calves? I thought I had children to make them do these sort of things! Just kidding! I love the cold pizza on the way out the door-sounds oddly familiar.

I love the baskets, especially the first one. I still want to see pictures of your floor and hear full details on the entire project. Start to finish, no details hidden. :) Just to add something to your long list of stuff to do.

Kaylin said...

We'll take the cows!!! Ross wants so badly to have his own herd to tend! Maybe if he's lucky he might get some of his dads:) Me on the other had, don't know if I'm ready for that...Good luck with the calves:)

Robin said...

Oh My! That is a busy schedule. Hang in there. Love all the new stuff for your shop!

Farmgirl Paints said...

There is just something about a wire basket that I can't pass up. I have several:)

Tara said...

Wow that is some schedule my dear, goodness, you need a glass of wine in there somewhere surely!! love the new finds, how did you know I heart old license plates! :) xo

Lolo said...

Phewww! You are one energetic woman :D
And now I feel lazy and extremely underproductive - haha....

Love all your new finds - your eye is very rusty, grungy and dirty. I like it alot!!

Have a wonderful week - and stop working so hard girlie!

XOX

I used to help my uncle hay in the field behind our house~ what a JOB! I have often said that if anyone wants to know the true meaning of hard work, let them work on a hay team for a day...just a day! They will TOTALLY look at farmers in a new way.
I am addicted to wire baskets. Love yours with the handles!
Give yourself a minute to catch your breath...(then go order that island....#4!! ;0)
Smiles,
Beth

Julia said...

I totally understand that schedule...but you have a shop to tend, too! You are amazing:). The wire baskets are wonderful. Love the handles!! Hope you are getting a nap in somewhere:)!

OHH I have a sweet spot for metal baskets too! I have a locker basket in my powder room to holder extra hand towels.

Rustique Art said...

love the baskets...

Secret Garden Cottage said...

More great pieces, Kristin!! I just got (stole) a basket just like the vintage metal milk crate you've pictured off the back of my husband's 1968 motorcycle that he bought a couple of weeks ago to refurbish. As soon as I saw it, my heart started fluttering. Luckily he didn't want it (yay!). We struck a deal... I have to include a picture of his motorcycle when I blog about the basket (done!). I'm storing those mason jars I bought off of you in it. ;o)
Have a good night,
Hugs ~ Jo
