Now that we are firmly ensconced in fall, I think it is only fitting to reflect back on some of the more unique, yet important lessons learned this past summer.
1. Flip flops don't belong in the henhouse. I am quite sure that I don't need to go into details here...suffice it to say that it was a disgusting lesson learned.
2. Flip flops don't belong in the cow pasture. Okay, you would think I could figure that out, but I was just dashing out there to dump a bucket of feed. Who knew those meadow muffins were still moist. That crusty cover can be deceptive.
3. An inflatable lobster is not equipped to hold an average sized woman in the swimming pool. Enough said....
4. One squash plant in the garden will produce enough squash to feed a family of four....and then some.
5. A hobby farm will often produce more manure than anything other type of product.
6. A frog can live in a swimming pool, no matter what the chlorine level.
7. And last, but certainly not least, when your husband tells you that he has fixed the fence right before he leaves town, the cows will be hanging out in the yard as soon as that man hops on the airplane.
