Farm Happenings for May 23, 2020

Posted on May 17th, 2020 by Shiloh Avery

I am never that super cheery morning person.  I mean, I’m not grumpy per se, more like stoic.  It takes a bit of stretching and meditation and yeah, okay, coffee to get up to cheerful.  But for some reason this Saturday when the 3:45am alarm went off, I was downright chipper.  The kitten made me giggle, I was whistling, I didn’t even feel like glaring at my husband. Jason was actually worried about me!  I can’t explain it.  I thought about it: did I eat super healthy the night before?  Pasta. Well that’s not chips, but it’s not exactly a salad either, so it must not be that.  It can’t be looking forward to the day because we were expecting a heavy frost that night and so I knew I had to come home quick from market and work on preparations. I just couldn’t explain it.  I still can’t explain it. Maybe it was a premonition that we would make it through the frost (which we did). Maybe it was Maybelline.
