Happy Memorial Day
I hope you had a wonderful long weekend. It is now coming to an end and it will be back to work again tomorrow.
How about this year? Is it going as quickly for you as it seems to be going for me? Busy busy busy. So here is the progress that I accomplished this weekend.
Spent Saturday painting boards, putting up fences, and moving earth, from one spot to another. Our mower is broken and the weeds are getting higher by the day. We have about 7 acres of tall weeds. It is really beginning to bug me. All the money that we have is going into the house now and there just isn’t room in the budget for another riding mower, this year. Hopefully, between Lynn and Troy, they will figure it out this week. In the meantime I am still working on the fence.
Sunday was about the same as Saturday. Except that the light fixture in the other house blew the breaker and was smoking. Not a good sign. Oh, did I mention, I don’t do electrical. That and skill saws. Nope, I don’t do either of those. Apparently Steven doesn’t do them either. So this appears to be a job for Lynn, so on Monday (today) we headed to our favorite spot, Home Depot, for a new fixture. We should have taken the old fixture off first to see what was needed, but that would have been too easy. Got the wrong fixture, so it’s back to the store tomorrow. Ugh, I hate taking things back.
On the plus side, I found a lucky penny, so maybe that will count for something.
So actually, my weekend was busy and boring. I hope to have more to write about next week. Take care and here are some pictures, I snapped today.
This is a maple tree we grew from a sapling. Getting big.
Well, that’s all folks. Hope to post more progress next week.
