Living on a farm continues to test many parts of who I am, and the way I’ve always been. For instance, I hate dirty hands, when eating one doesn’t expect to smell cow/pig poop, and when I walk into the house I don’t expect for it to smell like a barn. These are just a few things that challenge me.
I’ve never liked dirty hands since as long as I can remember. I know it’s possibly learned behavior, but even so, living on a farm isn’t conducive to clean hands. Not to worry I don’t carry a bottle of hand sanitizer around with me, but you better bet I wash them as soon as I can.
Usually My Farmers barn clothes hang out in the garage, but he quickly got tired of putting on cold clothes in the winter. So to fix the problem we had to welcome the barn clothes with poop on them into the mud room. Before you start asking whey they aren’t washed on a regular basis, they are, but not daily. It’s not a country/farm thang to do. So a weeks worth of poop is what we smell when we enter the house. Gotta love that!
Yep, if you live on a farm there will be the occasional stench of poop at the lunch or supper table. I learned this one years ago, but it still catches me off guard sometimes.
All in all though I can’t imagine being anywhere else. I’m enjoying learning about a country way of life and every aspect, including the poop, is interesting to say the least.
