Fresh Coffee, Bacon, Eggs, Breakfast Smells Fill The Maine Farm House Kitchen.
The heavy Maine farm house kitchen door creaks open, closes, the ceiling light flicks on.
Shines brightly, as you unlace work boots. Park them, your yellow chore gloves too near the kitchen wood cook stove. Hang up your barn coat, reach for a clean coffee cup.
Pour, then slurp your second fresh black caffeine installment of the day with one hand.
The other God gave you reaches for the large cast iron frying pan. Flies, pilots, lands it with a touch down on the hot wood cook stove surface.
Early morning farm chores are done, for now.
You just spent the last two and a half hours with horses, sheep, cows and chickens. Feeding, watering, cleaning up, replacing straw bedding.
The hens are the only ones that provide something for your Maine farm fresh breakfast. You crack three eggs layed overnight into the Maine blueberry pancake batter poured from a refrigerator pitcher. Three more eggs have tickets for front row seats in today’s Mexican omelet.
As the thick wide bacon strips and sausage links sizzle, swim in the stove frying pan, your attention turns to peppers. Green, red, orange and yellow ones are sliced, diced. Collected, introduced to onions, tomatoes, mushrooms that get the same treatment.
All are invited to the early show culinary performance in your Maine farm house breakfast.
As you trudged in from the stable area this morning, fresh snow crunched under your boot heels. With an ample armful of stove wood from the shed. To keep the fires burning brightly, hotly. To warm your bones.
Upon entry into your dark kitchen, before the start of breakfast dishes, pans starting their racket. Your cat threw you several rapid fire rude stares.
You woke him up, you’re late. He is not purring.
Broadcasting clear channel 100 KW jagged glares.
The look telegraphed from his twitching whiskered fat gray tiger face. As his eyes adjust to the interruption of sleep. Of still way way too early Maine winter morning darkness. Rise and shine on a Maine farm happens many hours earlier. While most of the population is still sawing logs, with their head in bed, laying horizontal.
You catch, feel the sting of the feline’s sharp harpooned optical barbs. That say where you been, I’m hungry. Proving you and I don’t ever really own a cat. They just run the house the way they see fit, have servants. He is right, you are an hour out of the routine he is used to because of barn damage. From the stallion who has very poor stable manners. Not a farm animal team player. One big pain in the butt, a loose canon that trouble easily finds.
Using his rear steel shoe kicking feet, the horse that needs Dale Carneigie training forgot something.
To read the book about go along to get along.
Pretty much destroyed the port side rear end of his standing stall.
Bickering with the mare two doors down. In her larger horse square footage, bigger barn stable real estate box stall.
Jealous, needing attention and the product of abuse and neglect before he was delivered to your Maine farm. A troubled past. He is a cribber too. Nervously eats, nibbles and gnaws on wood around his manger where flakes of hay are suppose to lay. Not woodchips like a beaver would make. The few that fall he does not gobble down.
Later today, a line through one item. Off the long chore to do list. You are adding galvanized metal channel strips. To protect the wood manger lunch and munch framing area. To limit his destruction but not fooling yourself. Never cure the habit is what will happen with this particular barn yard drama.
Like to be in this kind of daily routine and be the boss, call the shots on your own Maine farm property listing? Fixing machinery, getting ready to plant, cultivate, harvest.

Run a post hole digger to set up and repair the pasture fencing. Tinker with tractors, machinery.
To keep the Maine farm buildings maintained, fields worked, wood lots trim, selective cut and as highly productive as possible.
