The Busy Season

Chapter I
The Harvest on the Farm

It was April 24th. Annie’s family was the busiest of all. Father had to hunt, so he can’t work. Mother picked vegetables from the garden. Annie collected honey from their beehive. Annie’s little brother and sister, John and Anna, were picking apples, hazelnuts, blueberries and potatoes.
Annie headed to the warehouse. The warehouse was old and rusty and full of boxes and cobwebs. Annie poured the honey in a huge honey jar. Then, she came out to harvest the wheat.
Anna went in the warehouse next. She put the things she harvested in a bag and went out to shear the sheep. John came after that. He put the things he harvested in the same bag and went out to collect eggs.
Father came back from hunt with 3 fresh deer and 1 juicy lion in a sack. He put the sack in the warehouse and went out to the market. Mother was last. She poured the vegetables in a box and went out to harvest the grapes. They made a list of what was inside the warehouse:

  • o   5 warm bread loafs
  • o   5 soft pillows
  • o   5 eggs
  • o   5 grapes
  • o   5 grape juice pots
  • o   5 fresh deer
  • o   5 cheese
  • o   5 milk pots
  • o   5 light bulbs
  • o   5 groceries
  • o   5 warm scarfs
  • o   5 flour bags
  • o   5 wheat stalks

Anna noticed there were 5 of everything. She asked John, Annie, mother and Father if they could work some more. Annie, John and Anna worked together to fill up the warehouse. They made it just in time. The list was like this:

  • o   10 warm bread loafs
  • o   30 soft pillows
  • o   15 eggs
  • o   18 grapes
  • o   6 grape juice pots
  • o   5 fresh deer
  • o   50 cheese
  • o   6 milk pots
  • o   100 light bulbs
  • o   50 groceries
  • o   5 warm scarfs
  • o   15 flour bags
  • o   30 wheat stalks
The next morning was the 1st of June. It was cold. Father went to the attic and grabbed 10 heaters. He turned them on and placed them in the 4 bedrooms, bathroom, living room, warehouse and kitchen, attic and the hall. He turned them on at WARM. He got the whole family to meet in the living room wearing scarfs, a big warm quilt and snugly sweaters. They rested their heads on soft pillows. Annie, John and Anna, although they were big, brought their teddy bears in. It was so lovely.
