I didn't do any better last night finished a book and started another!!!
don't have any idea what time I finally went to sleep but I know it wasn't early, maybe real early morning but not night. I may have a better time getting to sleep tonight. I had to top and prune the pear tree and apple trees. I only got one of the apple trees done, but I also cut down as best I could a couple of plum trees that had died a couple of years ago. Not only did I do the cutting but I have everything burned so tomorrow I will till into the garden. The dead peach tree is also gone. I built the fire around it and burned it down Will probably go that way with the two plum trees. That way I won't have any suckers coming up and it should kill all the roots. I did not mean to do this today. I was headed out to get a pen set up for the ducks. Once I get it set up and get them in it, I will be processing some of them. Some others I will be giving away and I believe I have narrowed it down to three to keep.
I came in at one point and floured and seasoned some chicken and threw it in the over. Earlier I had put on some eggs to hard boil. I almost forgot the eggs. If I would not have had them over a low flame they would have gone dry. I used my toaster oven for the chicken and in that way it automatically turns off. I use it a lot. After putting the chicken on to cook I went back out and got busy again. Once the chicken was done I fixed a package of red beans and rice in the microwave, Fixed the evening meal for the dogs, yes, I cook for the dogs. Today they had scrambled eggs with goodies from the baked chicken and a little of the red beans and rice mixed in. They cleaned it up and will not get any thing to eat until I cook tomorrow evening. I took my supper outside so I could watch and tend to the fire.
A while ago, I put the fire out and covered it with dirt, now I am in and will start the dishes and get the kitchen straightened out. Believe I will take a bath first as I smell very strongly of smoke and I can't stand that.
Still have one more tree to top and don't know if I will do that tomorrow or not. My muscles are aching!! No Y for me today and not again until Mondayl
Gotta get busy
