( Our " Granny Smith " Apple Tree is waking up! )
The past couple weeks have been - really - weird. I guess it’s true when they say - “ Wanna see God laugh? Make a plan! “
The crazy spring-like weather has tried to stomp mud puddles in our way all it can. Not working. We just keep revamping the list - and rolling with the flow.
Getting things knocked off that list!
( Ohhhhh, just look! We're gonna have LOTS of Plums. Shuddup and play along! )
I made my usual run to handle errands in Lenoir City - yesterday.
Ohhh! I saw Bradford Pear trees blooming! And I saw Hubs' favorite two trees ( Huge " Jane " Magnolia trees covering a mobile home ) busting loose with color - too!
After getting all the groceries put away - handing out treats to the pups and checking on the girls - I headed outside to help Dwayne measure fence line for Artie and Bruce.
I don’t have the courage to tell him that he didn’t measure enough.
He’s gonna need more. But there’s time. Better to wait - and let him learn the hard way. ( One less argument. )
Today - we’re headed off to pick up bundles of fencing wire - hinges and other hardware for inside the barn - and a refill of Zucker’s prescription for Thyroxine. We’re also stopping to check on one more source for roofing/sheeting metal.
Tomorrow - while the rain heads for other places - we go for round fence posts. If time allows - Hubs wants to construct doors for the stalls in the barn.
( That " Belle of Georgia " Peach tree is perkin' up, too! )
Sometimes - it seems like there’s so little going on around here. But there are all the other chores - in between getting all this extra stuff taken care of.
I have to go downstairs to get anything out of the pantry and freezers - or do laundry. ( I do massive amounts of cooking - baking - and laundry. No. Seriously. I do. I really do. ) I have to go out across acreage to get to the chicken coop. I get my - ahem - “ walking “ done each day. The pups and the girls see to that!
But when the weather has been beautiful - the pups and I have taken off for walks around the hay pasture - as well.
It wears ‘em both out.
I can vacuum and steam mop.
