The Blogging Meetup Weekly Wednesday Prompt 6/01/2016 

#WeeklyWednesdayPrompts  Here are the prompts:

  1. Dream – Write something inspired by a recent dream you had… good, funny or a scary dream… just write.
  2. Age – What is the most difficult thing about being your age?
  3. Legacy – What do you want to leave behind when you’re no more?

I’m a little late writing, I have picked this one.

Age – What is the most difficult thing about being your age?

In New Zealand in the last couple of weeks, we have had very wet stormy weather.

The result is that two large Blackwood trees fell across the fences.

The weather cleared this week so from Wednesday to Friday my husband and I have spent three days chainsawing and burning all the rubbish from the trees, there were seven large loads of firewood taken back to the shed to dry out for future fires (at the moment they are too green to burn.

Now that’s where the above title comes in, ” Age – What is the most difficult thing about being your age”?

My husband is nearly eighty I’m seventy-six in September to us there is no limit to what we can do, only got a little slower, age has nothing to do with not being able to do whatever is needed to do in life, to us, it’s all about mind over matter and attitude to life, you are never too old as long as you have lived a healthy life and are in good health, last May I had ACC Cancer I’m still under a specialist, but I won’t let that stop me from living and doing what is needed to live our life.

Yes, today we are both rather tired but it’s Queen’s Birthday weekend in New Zealand, Monday a holiday, so that’s what we will do relax in our home in town.

Baling Hayledge

Sunday we will go back to the farm and move stock into a new paddock for feed, very soon we will be feeding them hay ledge which involves a Quad and trailer which we open the late bales of hay ledge and peel off the feed from the large bales, put it on the trailer and feed it to the cows, admittedly we only have 65 animals to feed as we sold stock in the autumn, we had 150 animals during the summer.

There are no limits to us in old age, we have a farm and animals to look after when we can no longer work we will sell the farm.

Happy Days Living.
