Meet Our Summer Intern

Ha-ha, and don't we wish!  Although we couldn't convince our dear daughter to give up her other two jobs and function as slave labor here on the homestead all summer, she did agree to work for us one day a week.


Yesterday was her first day and much was accomplished.  She moved and re-stacked a lot of lumber, moved a bunch of bags of feed, took down some overhead bracing (don't cha just hate working with your arms over your head?), moved some materials to a storage building, and built a storage rack in the feed room.  (You can see her hiding working away down in the right hand corner above.)


Raise your drill if you're having a good time!  (The feed room is unheated and we had a high of 30 degrees yesterday.  Hence, the hat and jacket.)

The first shelf boards were put in place before she had to leave to go put in a few hours at one of her "real" jobs. 

Even if it is only one day a week, we're pickled tink to have her help.

    1. Susan - She is talented both creatively and with tools! She's definitely not a female who needs to be "taken care of!"

  2. Its lovely to have some help with tasks, I am thinking of putting a list of jobs to do so when visitors ask if there is anything they can do to help I can direct them to the list to choose :-)

    1. Dawn - Ha, I love it! You can't lose by doing that. Either the visitors will jump in and help with gusto and have a fine old time or . . . you won't see them again! ;o}

  3. I'm so happy your daughter lives close enough to be the big help that she is.
    I think my son moved 2000 miles away on purpose. Can't prove it, but I'm a thinking....

  4. Mama Pea,

    Can I borrow your Daughter? You're one lucky Mom to have such a nice Daughter. Lately when I ask our youngest (23 years of age) for help he will say sure Mom....then when you need the help he's not home :-(
    Hugs,
    Sandy

  5. You can tell she knows what she is doing with that shelving! That is a unique and valuable skill.

    Glad she can help at least one day!

    1. gld - Just as knowing the basics of sewing and cooking would be great for guys to know, having the basic knowledge of how to use tools is a real benefit to us gals!
