How much Hay can a vacuum hold?

I've slowly been working at decorating the house. My hubby is away with his family in N. California, most of his relatives are there at the hospital with his dad and sister. Not sure of the outcome...it does seem to be stable now.
I'm here at home managing all the animals...not my favorite I must admit...but I would do anything for him. So I'm feeding pigeons & chickens, gathering eggs, feeding sheep, watering... I've decided to be helpful...even if I end up getting hay everywhere. How it gets inside my clothes I do not know! Big smile. It is itchy too when it gets in your....underthings! Hahahaha

Finished up some stitching...getting rid of the clutter...my house is getting ready to have a load of company....which I am grateful for.
Now how much hay can a vacuum hold?
"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want...He restores my soul;" Psalm 23:1,3

Hi Debbie,

I bet there IS a lot of work on the farm for just one person. The hay is too funny cause I bet it does itch!

Your stitchery looks fabulous and I love the little pilgrims.

I'm glad your two family members are doing better.♥

Hi, Debbie --

I hope everything works out well for your FIL ... and I sure hope you're not too itchy.

Your blessings book tutorial was so inspiring! I just love how it turned out. I'm sure you'll all enjoy filling it with gratitude.

I'm beginning to prepare for Thanksgiving here too, though we'll only have nine counting the kiddos. And yet I have a 25lb. bird to cook! Food is love, especially at the holidays.

Start a trend, farm "nekkid"! ;O) It is CA, right? Then you won't have to worry about hay in the cracks! LOL! J-u-s-t kidding. Hope your husband will be back soon. It's not fun to vacuum!
