Time is flying by!!

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Sinc I last posted, I have shampooed carpets, processed out three of the meatbirds, pulled weeds and sprayed the canadian thistles. I have never had so many before. Won't probably be doing any butchering for a couple of weeks, as the time when Jeff is not here and I am is very limited. I wanted to get three or four more rabbits done, but it looks as though they will have to wait.
Have ordered an electric tiller and a small power sprayer. As soon as they are in I have my work cut out for me. I am going to take down the shutters and power wash the house. It has not been done in the years we have been here so I know it needs it. Before I put the shutters back up I will be painting them red. I will use the same color of paint I am using on the door trim and garage door trim. Then I have four planters I will be painting red. I am going to pick up some window boxes in terra cotta color to put up at the fron window. Will really look different when I get it all done. Hopefull the rest of the roof will go on this next week end and then I will start in. The tiller and the power washer will be in the 19th.
My sis Mary is coming home for a visit. How long she will be staying I don't know they will be camping out at my one niece's place. We are having a pot luck on the 22nd. I am going to take oven fried chicken, a fried rabbit, deviled eggs and cup cakes. I will also be giving my other sis some of the necks and backs from the chickens to make chicken and noodles. If I haad more chicken livers I would fry up a bunch of them and take, but the numbers are too small. ONce I get all of the chickens dressed out I will invite anyone who wants to come and help eat them to come on over.
Dakota, the grand son I had not seen for over ten years until just a few weeks ago will be here to meet more of his family. He will be coming about the 17th and be here for a week. I figure he will spend at least a couple of days with his half sister and then he and Gabe will be here to go fishing!!!! By the time they get finished with me, I will be fished out. I am going to have them help me get the straw out of the back of the truck and the one night, we will go for a full overnighter of fishing. I promised Gabe we would do that this summer. I will crawl into the back (I have a futon mattress back there and I can go to sleep if I get too tired. Gabe is really looking forward to it.
That brings up to today and I must thank the Lord for taking care of me and giving me the strength to get all done that needs to be done. I praise Him for his great love and mercy.

    Sounds like you've got everything under control, so nice to be with family to see each other and talk. Glad your grandson hooked back up with you the fishing sounds like a fun thing. Hugs my friend and don't over do it. We're not as young as we once were. emoticon
