Only 10 Minutes
10 minutes is all it was going to take to pick up the barn. 10 minutes is all it would have taken to clean up the wood pile. 10 minutes was needed to organize the feed room. 10 minutes and I could have had the scrap lumber stacked. 10 minutes and I could have finished one of the raised beds. 10 minutes and...........
All it would have taken was 10 minutes to complete this or that around the Mini Farm for the last few weeks, but I was too busy to worry about such small things. I would use the excuses, it was too cold outside, too wet, the game is on and so on. All those little items added up quickly and now a full list of 10 minute things turned into a weekend of chores.
I ran out of onions last year so I hope three bunches will last a little longer this time around. I think if I can stay out of them and quit picking the green onions for dinner, then I might have enough.
The wife stayed in the greenhouse most of the day yesterday getting all the seeds planted. I would hear a sound every now and then coming from inside there signaling she was still alive and kicking so I just left her alone to do her thing. That little place is stuffed full now and I like it. There is more things planted than we have room for, but I like it like that.
That's all I got for now. I have to get busy on the rest of my 10 minute list that will take me all day.
I hope y'all have a great day.
