I went outside and helped Brie turn the solar arrays. Yesterday I carried two propane canisters, maybe 35 pounds each. Walked in WalMart at a leisurely pace. Nothng much.

(tips hat) Why, Thankye Ma'am!
We haven't been outside yet, but we plan to remove the temporary door from the room under construction, remove the six sheets of OSB plywood, and replace the door with one of those sheets. We will then hoist the remaining sheets onto the roof. Whether we screw them into place will be determined by our backs. That part might wait for the next work day.

My time outside today will probably only be going from my house to my van, from my van to the bank, from my van to the grocery store etc. I need a rest day badly and the high is supposed to be 29, so I can't even plant seeds.

Yesterday was overcast and this morning we had thick fog. But by noontime, the sky was blue and Brie and I finished dismantling the old, clunky target stand and made a smaller one out of its parts.

Nice temps. Which state do you live in SHOCOSS?

Today I put all the subsoil back into the hole and leveled it. I"m taking a break and hoping to go back out and put the topsoil on. Can't believe I'm this close to being done. It's supposed to get down to 20 tonight and be pretty cold for the next several days and nights so it's good to get it done so I don't just have a giant soil popsicle that I can't break into until spring.

I swam for 60 minutes. So thankful the weather has been in the high 60's and 70's. The pool is heated but if the wind is blowing,ohhh what a chill when I get out.

I took buckets of subsoil around areas of my fence where the pig likes to dig through (aka ground hog). Then, I laid plastic in my giant hole and started throwing the dirt back in. Probably got 1/3 done or so. Now, I'm going to pick up my kids and then I stop at a friend's house for some plants.

It is windy today, o we can't use our new paint sprayer. We need to seal all the wood with Thompson's Water Sealant. I recommend that brand. It far outlasts the water based acrylic sealers. I know from experience. We have to re finish the wood that was supposedly sealed four years ago.

Sunday, I dressed up in my cowboy duds and top hat and went shooting. I got nervous when shooting under the timer and botched a few shots. I need to stay calm under pressure.
So Brie and I practiced again today. I usually do more walking at practice to inspect targets, but the wind was so stiff that the targets wouldn't stand up. So I shot at a stationary steel target instead. It makes a loud gong noise when you shoot it, so I didn't have to run out to 200 yards to check my progress.
Instead, I got my walking one at Wal Mart chasing after Brie, who was on the electric shopping cart!

Monday 11/6
I woke with the wind blowing and a chill in the air. I didn't think I would go swimming, so I picked up the yard tree branch clippings and such as tomorrow is trash day. I filled one barrel in an hour. Then my friend called who started me on this swim routine and she was still going. It warmed up to 68 degrees. She told me it only cold when you get out and hit the hot shower asap! lol So, I went swimming after all. 57 minutes. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and I'm glad I went. Now. I'm relaxing the rest of the day. I hope you teammates got your exercise in too!! emoticon

Brie and I were outside digging through her collection of engines. We have a dilapidated camping trailer with five or six surplus army engines which were once used to run generators and water well pumps. I can see that we will have a major cleanup project. Apparently, when we evicted the rats from the house and the workshop, they all moved into this particular trailer. They have been tearing things up for over a year because we have neglected that trailer. We have to have a place to store those engines so that we can tear apart the old trailer, down to the frame.

Back in June we put up a in shed, that led to cleaning out the garage, adding needed shelves and now have it pretty much organized. Which leads me to today. I cleaned out our old shed ( lizards and black widows and other spiders), I pulled it all out, put things in plastic tubs and labeled them. I moved all the auto parts in one shed so DH should be ok finding things. lol! You can now walk through the old shed and see everything without pulling anything out and digging behind something else. All this took me 5 hrs. Boy time flys when you are having fun. emoticon I needed to wait till the weather cooled down and today was the perfect day. What are weekends for anyways., NOT! lol!

Lots of sunshine today but only in the 70's. I cleaned up the yard and swept the patio for about 40 min.

Last night just before the sun was going to set, I went out for a three mile walk. I think I may repeat that tonight. It was very pleasant.

The rain did not come, but the weather became windy. Although the wind carried three of my bullets off about four inches, I maintained good accuracy. And funny thing: I never once considered becoming a mass murderer.

It might rain today here in west Texas, so we plan to go to the shooting range before the winds start up.

Have to sew dresses today, but I did stop at my friend's house and collect some seeds from her plants. It's supposed to maybe rain and I hope so because I spread lots of seeds in the woods behind my house last week and I'd like the rain to "pin" them down to the ground.

Yesterday I moved comfrey plants. Today I shoveled over the soil in that area and prepared it for seeds that need winter stratification in order to grow. Tomorrow I plan to dig up sod so that I have room for more seeds.

Apparently you don't have a hose that contracts to a tiny package! At least the heavy hose adds to your workout. I don't have the patience to grow stuff. I am trying to nurture a desert elm, but I have nearly killed the little thing several times. It is getting root bound. Maybe I will transpot it today.

What a joy to go hiking! Yesterday we were outside on the roof. Our resident roadrunner was up there too, watching us cautiously for a while. There are crows and ravens all over the place. We got a few more boards in place before the winds came up. Today it was windy before we even got out of bed. No construction today. Any exercise we do will be indoors!

I like your story. Now I know when a person is called a snake, you don;t trust them.

I have had dogs that would place themselves between me and the snake - which is problematic while shooting the darn things. The Cherokee people feel that it is bad luck to kill a rattlesnake. I feel it is bad luck to be bitten by one! My wife is part Cherokee and she feels the same way. Other snakes are welcome to hang out and keep the rodent population in check.

I once tried to save the rattles, but they came apart when I cut them from the bone. What is the trick?

Cherokee story. A young man went out to gather wood one frosty morning. He bent down to pick up a stick, but realized it was, instead, a rattlesnake, uncoiled and frozen. It would have been a simple thing to kill it in its defenseless state. But, feeling pity for the creature and remembering that it was bad luck to kill a rattler, he carefully placed him inside his coat to warm him up. In a few minutes, he could feel the snake begin to wrigģle and writhe.
He opened his coat to check on it, but it reared back its head and struck him on the face.
Astonished, the young man said, "I saved you from freezing to death, and this is how you repay me?"
The snake simply replied, "You knew I was a rattlesnake when you picked me up!"
The moral is, don't expect kindness to be recognized or repaid by (a person who is like) a rattlesnake!

I walked 72 minutes this morning 9/13 and 70 minutes 9/12


So scary! I'm glad your dog was ok. I'm glad you torched it too. We had one here years ago. We killed it and I kept the rattles. I have no problem killing those snakes that could kill me emoticon

My computer is situated near the screen door. A few feet away is Shellie's water dish and food bowl. So natural I jumped to my feet when I heard the distinctive rattle of a rattlesnake. It was rattling at Shellie, who simply wanted a drink of water. We had to shoot the snake, which was a 28 inch Mohave Green. These guys have a neurotoxic venom. I hated killing the snake, but it is endangering my dog and I am not qualified to "handle" a rattlesnake.
Using a shovel and a rake, I placed the snake in the burn barrel, raked up a patch of tumbleweeds and torched that sucker.

I spent more time at the shooting range, but our target was only at 50 feet instead of 50 yards. Still, I had to drag the dang thing about 20 feet. It is made of heavy steel.We shopped at WalMart too, which required a lot of hoofing time. This morning we unloaded the truck. I carried a 35 pound bottle of drinking water into the kitchen. Ufda!

Yesterday was spent outside at the shooting range with all my cowboy and cowgirl friends. I helped with the loading and off-loading of our big, 80 pound buffalo target. Helped with the set up of other targets on a different "stage". I did a lot of walking on behalf of Brie, who is still struggling with a sciatica attack.

Today, I actually took a three hour nap! Actually, I had taken a tramadol last night for pain in my neck, head and shoulders. The after effect of that med is that it tires me out the next day. And it is not very effective for dealing with that pain, anyways.

After my nap, we grilled some skirt steaks. YUM!

I danced in the rain. We met our daughter at a campsite close by and actually got rain for about 10 minutes. It cooled us down a bit from 106 heat. I got my grand kids out there to dance in it. What fun and didn't care who was watching and my daughter took pic!! emoticon emoticon
