It doesn't amount to much more than a run-down of my day, but . . . it's all I've got.
This morning we put in several hours of wood working. (Nothing new about that.) The great news is that we're just a couple of wheelbarrows short of having the first wood shed filled. It's taken us two weeks of working on this project sporadically, whenever we can. We hope to have the other wood shed filled by July 1st. To accomplish that, we may have to work a little (or a lot) harder (or faster). Or hire help. A crew of 12 would be nice. (Note to fantasy crew: Please bring your own chainsaw and a brown bag lunch every day. Thank you.)
This afternoon Papa Pea mowed our small hay field. His goal is always to mow it June 1st, July 1st, and August 1st. Yep, he's a little behind this season, but he's been a busy boy.
I'm not sure where I squeezed it in, but I do remember finally finishing my Monday's ironing sometime today. If I don't get the washing and ironing both done on Monday, the ironing tends to go by the wayside.
While hubby was mowing, I weeded the garden. Got everything shipshaped up with only the raspberry and strawberry patches to do yet. I moved some transplants and put in seeds in a few spots so went out after dinner to water.
I'm so pleased to have gotten such great germination on the corn planted in my little mounded-up rows.
I made a taco salad for dinner and had thoughts of making a rhubarb pie tonight. But I just don't have the oompf to go out to harvest the rhubarb and then make the pie. Maybe tomorrow.
Seems like a good night to get the dishes done, get all ready for bed and perhaps watch a DVD. Or part of one . . . which is probably all I'll manage before conking out!
