Christmas preparations can be stressful. So, this week we are attempting to help you look at the lighter side of the holiday season.
And other crazy things on my Christmas lists...
The theme for this week emerged for several reasons, but one of them was my Christmas list. Just for reference, I have included a photo of my Christmas list, to show that it was legit, and laugh-worthy. So, in no particular order, here are the top three reasons why my wish list is crazy.
Christmas list 2017
1.) I started writing it on a pocket-size paper. WHAT was I doing limiting myself like that? (Thanks to Glenboro Pharmacy for the note paper.)
2.) Item #2 is written right above item #3. Yep – measuring cups is right above a 2” receiver and ball for my Ranger. I recently broke the handle off my favorite 1 cup measure AND I would like my own receiver ball for the Ranger so I am always ready to pull the snow tube. This is a prime example of the diverse interests of a farm extender. (Or possibly just women in general.)
3.) Item #4 is a strong magnet and bracket system for the GoPro. So, I can document more of my craziness for even more people to see. Let that sink in for a minute. Actually, I totally love capturing life on the farm and I am hoping to do more of it. Maybe I also need to ask for editing software :-)
Looking at this list, it is actually pretty reflective of my lists every year. A wacky combination of the many sides of me. The first Christmas I made a list for my now-husband I asked for a wheel barrow and a mini ladder. It took a while to convince him that I was serious!
For the record, this post does not give farm men everywhere permission to get their Farm Femmes these items for Christmas. Keep reading tomorrow to get more insights into what other Farm Femmes might want to get this holiday season.
