Green Acres...........

Well they say be careful what you wish for. And I confess I have always wanted to live on a farm or a ranch. I love nature and animals. Well somehow instead of a farm or a ranch I ended up with Lucy. I know there is alot of irony in my life but I have learned to embrace it. Taking the journey the Lord has laid out for me rather than the one I would follow. Who knows with all my allergies farm life would probably not suit me I would be one giant red puff ball with hives. And then of course my fear of butterflies. I have a feeling there are lots of butterflies on farms.

Lucy is my standard poodle and I will say through Lucy I am able to experience quite a bit of the farm life, and the allergies aren't so bad. I take on many roles while caring for Lucy some of those similar to caring for livestock of course. Sheep shearer, cattle wrangler... Although I definitely need to take a class on sheep shearing! I have yet to master her haircuts.

Today was bath day for Lucy which means the usual trim, bath, nails, ear cleaning, teeth brushing and possible some scraping of plaque off those back teeth. I know it is all very glamorous. It really ends up being quite the ordeal. The only way to get through messy situations like these is to tighten up your apron straps and jump on in.

Matthew 17:20
I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move.



Looking Good Lucy!! You made it through yet another one of my grooming sessions!!
