"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Spring Cleaning ~ Farm style!

Why is it that cleaning anything on a farm makes you filthy?
Many of you are busy polishing windows and floors and opening windows for fresh air.
We polish ponies.
And open doors for new spring mud n flies.
Farm life is awesome.
But it ain't often glamorous.
Unless you're P Dubya...
Here's Jack pitchin' in with chores.
Polishing up n shedding out his old hairy pony.
Not a chore to do in polarfleece with a snotty nose.
Only a mother could be lovin' these pics and feelin' grateful for the help.
But that doesn't mean she wouldn't make him strip and head for the bathtub before a thank you hug!
Hmm, unorthodox style, but I guess he's doing it!
 Wouldn't want to wear himself out or anything...
There's enough to stuff a horsehair mattress.
 Not counting what's on the kid.
Aaachoo. That's all for today. 
Another day, another load of gross laundry.

Linkin' up to Verde Farm  Farmgirl Friday blog hop- go meet some new friends!

We are all snotty noses here too! Yuck.

And I LOVE Jack's style. I dream of the days I can have a pony for my son. He is only 10 months so I think I have some time! ;)

Very cute post! Found you through Farm friend Friday. The pic of Jack sucked me right in! I think it's okay that he's backwards, he's getting the job done! lol And he seems to be having a great time doing it. What Mom wouldn't love that?!
