Mowing the grass,
Weeding the garden,
Grooming dogs and horses,
Leading horses to pastures,
Disinfecting water buckets.
The chore list doesn't seem that bad,
as I sit on the back porch,
wearing jeans, sweatshirt and wool socks,
reading a book,
drinking a beer,
surrounded by three dogs and three cats,
watching sheep and horses graze,
and listening to the chickens murmur as they catch the last moths of evening.
