Saturday Evening Post

A glimpse into the lives of the people who live in the Little Red Farmhouse. Sort of like eves dropping. It will be a quote or conversation. It may be funny. It may be sweet. Maybe a little sad. But it will always be true. We'll see if it resonates with you.

Me to my hubby: "Just look at my fingernails.  I can't get them to grow any longer than this!"
Me (comparing my nails to his): "They're shorter than yours!"
Hubby: (shrugs)
Me: "I'm working too hard!"

Yes, this was a one sided conversation.  It happens frequently when you live in a house with all males.  Guess that's why I like to blog.  At least then I get comments.


  1. Your poor girl, I know how you feel I had 4 brothers ahead of me, guess that is why I was such a tomboy! ;D

  2. ha ha! a little girly company via blogger (even tho I'm not very girly) :)

  3. I gave up on long fingernails years ago, working with horses, and now digging in flowerpots.
    I'm a newcomer to your delightful blog, and I'm in awe of your talents of homemaking and creating one of the most splendid and cozy places to call home.
    Hope to visit often !

  4. My poor hubby lives in a house full of girls! I've given up on nails!My daughter who does the most work on the farm has the most beautiful nails that she keeps polished. Not from my gene pool!

  5. this post Kim. I've never been able to grow long fingernails but I'll tell you what...once I moved to fingernails became stronger! Now that we moved to the farm I have no use for long fact they get in my way. Good luck with yours!
    Maura :)

  6. I get it my sweetie even asks me from time to time if I want my nails done(Im not insulted) but hey you cant garden or weed with a french manicure total waste of money! lol

  7. I feel your pain sister! Hubby got annoyed with me the other day when he asked me if he should shut the door as we were leaving and I (with a huff) said "No we have to take the stuff off of the stove"...I had JUST told him that not 3 minutes earlier...apparently his short term memory is going:-) Sometimes it appears they really are from Mars and we are from Venus.

  8. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAA!!!! It is sad but true! I totally can relate, I LOVE comments on by blog for much the same reason!

  9. LOLOL... ooooh welcome to the club. I'm blogging today too because I'm staring at a sink full of dishes from a boys sleepover..and I am procrastinating, yes I am.
