ok, haven't posted in a while, but I'm back! The husby leaves for tour today (although they will be back in a week for two days) and it wraps up the first week of June. It would seem that I have plenty to keep me busy though! lol... There is much farm work to do so I'm crossing all fingers and toes that I get some sunny days off to get this done!
We are out of the Highway 3 property (woo! Finally!) The last order of business was completed. We had to get out the ground rods for the old electric fence set up we had there, and 6-7 chive plants that we established last year.
We also had to move the truck and some last few things we had to collect. Much thanks to our old (*tear) neighbor Ron for all of his wonderful help. What a great guy!
So all of the focus is on the Lincoln/Stottlemeyer property now. Nigel couldn't handle being across the street from the noisy banty rooster and they proceeded to 'call and answer' each other every morning starting at around 4 am. Thanks much to our long suffering property owners for putting up with his crowy ass for 3 days. So now that they're in a 'new' spot, I'm hoping they stay in their fence, otherwise Lucy (aka 'killer') the resident golden retriever will be waiting! (haha)
There's also a lot of Asian greens, lettuce, cilantro, and dill to get transplanted. I'm still hooping and covering, using remay instead of plastic for now. Last night I noticed that it had blown off the bok choy I already got in, so this will be the test to see how many bunnies the fence can keep out, they love those greens!
I should be getting a few days off, the boy and fam are going to visit relatives, so I hope those days are sunny!
Speaking of the boy... we have made some significant progress! He has 5 going on 8 teeth, and is standing a little here and there all on his own! Very busy little bee over here...
Abbey is also going to be with me every day too, so I'm hoping to find some sweet spots to take her to get her wiggles out. She's a good girl, as long as she gets some exercise, otherwise, MONSTER! And although we like taking walks together as a 3some, I don't usually have the time (read: patience) to take her on daily "walks"
I may look sweet...
So it's back to the alone schedule... Work and ferry 4 days a week and farm and friends 3 days a week!
My commute isn't so bad!
I hope you look forward to hearing all about how I spend my time alone! I plan on getting together with a few of my friends I haven't been able to see in a while, and will be watching my favorite movies back to back to back to back as usual..... good times!
