Superpower

Today’s question is what superpower do you wish you had. I’m not really sure how to answer this because there are several that I can think of that would come in handy especially on a homestead/farm. For starters, speed would be nice because I would be able to get more done in a day I think. Many times it’s my size and my speed that take forever to get things done because I am not a big woman. Think 4’11”. I’m pretty small so I can’t move that fast because I have short legs.

Invulnerability would be another good one to have on the farm. I have been hurt several times by my goats and I’m sure the cows are going to do some damage as well once we start working with them more. Not being able to be hurt would a great advantage on the farm. Not to mention hubby’s trips to the ER from different accidents around here.

Night vision would also be particularly helpful around the farm. We do an animal check every night before bed and it would be so nice to not have to find a flash light before we head to the back yard. Of course that would have to go for both of us, not just me. Aarron is always using flash lights to be able to work long after dark. We have so much that needs done and daylight is just not enough time.

Finally, I think it would be amazing to be able to talk to animals. This would especially come in handy when you have a sick animal because they could tell me where they hurt or what happened. I believe this would be one of the most wanted super powers for any one on a farm. I know that I am not the only one who has had an animal that even the Vet couldn’t figure out what was going on.

Are there any other super powers you think would be good for a farm or homestead? Leave a comment below and let me know.

Have a great day!

The Squirrel Who Worried


I’ve partnered with Tomoson  on this post. Meaning I received payment or free product to write this post. All views are my own.

 

This has got to be the cutest book I have seen for littles in a while. While I was reading this to my grand son he sat through the whole thing. This is not something he does very often. He doesn’t seem to like being read to for some reason, but he likes this book. For information the grand son is almost 3 but still non verbal.  He enjoyed looking at the pictures while I read the book to him. I was surprised that he sat through the whole thing, he is very mobile and would much rather be mobile rather than sitting still.

The pictures look to be hand drawn and are all absolutely beautiful. I’m guessing the pictures were done by the author Katie O’Donoghue but as far as I can tell it doesn’t say specifically. The story is about a squirrel that worries and his friends, old and new, come to help him work through his worry so that he gather is acorns before winter.

 

As I said the pictures are amazing and beautiful. If you would like to purchase this book you can do so here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/071719230

I would love to know if you buy the book and what you think about it. Leave a comment below and let me know.

Have a great day!

Wounded Warrior

Today we are to write about a cause that we are passionate about. For me that would be the Wounded Warrior Project. I come from a family with many veterans and I love what this organization does for our veterans. This is one of few charity organizations that actually do what they claim to do. The money raised goes to help veterans when they return from service to civilian life. It is especially for those who have been wounded in service.

I love what this organization does and what it stands for. I love that they help veterans both here and abroad. Facebook does the birthday thing where you can donate to a specific charity for your birthday and this is always the organization I choose to try to help. Being from a military family, I will always choose to support this type of organization but I adore what they have done for countless families across the nation. If you would like to give to this great organization click the link above and it will take you to their site.

P.S. I receive nothing if you make a donation. This company is not affiliated with me in any way and I have not been paid for this post.

Have a great day!
