We now live on a dirt road, up a dirt drive way and because of the years of draught in California, our yard is also dirt. I come from a long line of vacuumers so this pains me to admit so publicly, but my whole house is now basically a chalkboard! My sweet neighbor, (the one who let's snakes in her house) told me that there will always be a fine layer of dust on everything and no matter how much I clean, within hours, the dirt will be back. She said it's like having a whole house chalkboard. Freakin' brilliant! Who needs fancy chalkboard paint or even fancy chalkboards? Not this lady! So when you come by the Farm for a visit, be sure to check for secret or not so secret messages. They'll be everywhere!
