Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

He still can't stand the heat

The roiling stock markets continue to plague Nicholas. Yesterday all he could do was make a batch of Stir Crazy popcorn, drink a bottle Two Buck Chuck, and watch the ticker until he passed out.

Nicholas still can't stand the heat. You'd think he'd stay out of the kitchen.

Hours later he woke up to find out it was baking day and so he proceeded to complain bitterly about the heat and when was I going to turn on the air conditioning?  The lasagna, two kinds of bread, and the batch of cookies could not lift his spirits. Sorry, Nicholas, looks like another hard day....the fifth of such.

Happy Friday everyone! Onward and upward!

I think that Nicholas was nipping on that bottle of wine!

Unfortunate fact about liquor laws in Oregon..... Two Buck Chuck here is Three Buck Chuck. Nicholas should count his blessings. ;))

I feel like that sometimes!

THAT is one of the funniest pictures I've seen in a while. He looks completely hammered. If I drank a whole bottle of "2 Buck Chuck" I'd be curled up in the fetal position. Rub his belly for me &;)

Love your blog! I've been a fan for a while, but it's so hard to comment on my ipad...so I finally pulled your site up on my lap top! I'm also a farm girl and I'm from Kentucky. Love my chickens!
Hugs

Hi Robin! He drank the whole thing.....

Susan - Nicholas has been counting his blessings today.. the number one is that I'm so understanding with his slothful ways.
;-)

So do I, Sue... hee hee hee

Belly rubs have been duly applied, Tami. He says "thanks!"

Hi Amber! Thanks for saying "hi!" and for reading along with us. Sending hugs back!

Ginny - our Nicholas has the heart of a killer for sure... we think he was from a long and glorious line of barncats and his father may have been Dragon, the scariest barncat ever.
