New Year's Delivery - A Load of Horse Manure!


There are a handful of things that get me REAL excited -- that jump up and down with glee kinda feeling when you are really happy about something. You know, you feel like you want to scream because you are SO excited and happy about something - tears of joy may even run down your face. I guess I'm a true Pennsylvania Dutch country girl, because when my father delivers a load of horse manure, I can't contain myself. I have to go play in it -- dig in it, stand on it, smell it, take pictures of it, separate it into smaller "piles." Its like gold to me, and always will be. The other excitement? Chickens!

Chickens! Though I don't know as I'd be quite *so* excited about the horse manure.... but the thought of the crops it can fertilize *does* make me smile :-) It is part of the signs that there will be growing days ahead!
