Sticks for Mom!

I've been very busy at The Farm and my assistant has been dearly lacking in her blogging assignments. For that I must apologize.

This weekend was very busy. It was Mom's birthday - and although I have yet to celebrate one - if this was any indication - I too will look forward to my own 4 day holiday extravaganza!

First we had to gather sticks.

Then I had to trim then down a little to get them JUST RIGHT. Apparently we needed kindling for a little bonfire. 'smores were on the menu and since I can't do the grocery shopping - I thought I would add my sticks as a contribution.

Of course I had to take a moment to catch a butterfly or too.

A girl's got to enjoy herself!

Here is all that's left of my hard work.
The important thing - we all had a good time sitting around the fire, staring at the stars in the sky, and roasting marshmallows. I understand the 'smores were very tasty.

Smiles all around!

I hope you have all been enjoying your own adventures.
