Dirty, Dirty Jobs

I am all for women's liberation and all of that, but I have to say that there are times when I have the excuse of doing laundry. 



Typically, in our household, the chores are somewhat divided.  I do laundry, cooking, etc..., and Secret Agent Man does a lot of the farm chores. 


After catching him working on the fence, with a sideways hat and distressed face, I was even more than glad that I had, "household", chores to do. 


I am glad to say that he has The Deerslayer to help him out at times like these. 

Does this mean that when The Deerslayer moves out I will have to hold the post/use the drill?  

Oh dear....

  14. I do most things around the house, I like using power tools and trying to build and make things but I don't climb ladders or get off the ground.

  15. Yes, I see that in your future! What I don't like is standing for twenty minutes holding something perfectly still...while he thinks about it, or measures over and over.

  17. Best have Deerslayer home regularly for "holidays", enticed by your cooking!

  20. 'fraid so - comes with the territory (you should see how skilled my wife's become).

  21. Nice captures of every day life. Hmmm....perhaps you should start looking for a buddy/qualified right hand man for Secret Agent Man for when the Deerslayer moves out.

  22. Probably. Our son grew up and moved to Japan, so now I'm the helper. Carry tree trunks, nail down the roof sheathing, lift heavy framing, and then make dinner and do the laundry. This summer, we'll probably build a workshop. But hey, it's all worth it to be able to live in the mountains. :)
    Happy 2013!
