Just got back from dinner out, had wonderful seared scallops with sun dried pesto garnish and carrots. I ordered Swedish cream with raspberries and it came with a birthday candle in it, they always remember my birthday! Tomorrow I am going for a... Read more

If I was good I would have taken pictures on the way over on the ferry, but I slept instead. After only 3 hours sleep I took off this morning. But on the way I stopped at Millinocket Regional hospital because the pain in my chest had moved and... Read more

Saturday was a fast paced day, after chores I started some gardening, repotting some plants that I didn't finish on Friday due to lack of time, they are all done now except the Bay tree, and I need a pot to do that, I searched all over the green... Read more

My brother Mike texted me a week and a half ago and as is his usual, short, almost terse messages just said, Erinn is graduating next Friday at 7 pm. I haven't made it down for Dad's 91st birthday because the guy that does my chores had sick co... Read more

I have been running from project to project the last week without much spare time. But I am also taking a more moderate view to a lot of things. In the past my gardens have taken a back seat to all the animal stuff that needs doing, this year ... Read more
Spring in full bloom

I am a very unhappy person when the temps get excessive, and to me, Thursday was excessive! 95 degrees when we have been having weeks of rain and 40-50 during the day, colder at night is kind of a shock to the system. I took off to the greenho... Read more
Another beautiful day, and a midnight raid on the asparagus patch!
Wednesday, May 17, 2017      12 comments

Yesterday was a perfect temperature, and lots if wind to chase off the clouds of black flies that are coming out. I went down to check wires in one of the back pastures, but the standing water is kind of a deterrent to doing a lot of fencing, I... Read more
Two great days, rain today!

We had sun for two days! I had to run to Millinocket on Friday to pick up the leftover bread from the food pantry and get milk replacer, when I came home I sort of skipped and jumped from project to project, but did get a lot done. I stopped ... Read more

The woman from soil conservation was here early Wednesday, we wondered around in the rain looking at all the damage, and at the offending culvert, plus across the road to see the absence of a culvert under the driveway across the street. She wa... Read more
Rain, Rain go away, come again another day

Wow it just doesn't want to quit raining, there was mixed weather today, but that could be because I was traveling to Old Town, spots were cloudy, spots were rainy, or drizzling or pouring hard, and a few spots had some sun out. Maine weather a... Read more

We had sun on and off all day today, sure beats rain! I bred some cows for my neighbor on Saturday and he promised to come over and help me for a couple hours today. I lined up a bunch of stuff to do that went better with help. We got ... Read more

Yesterday I was in one of those moods that I just wanted to work outside, finally sun, and it is supposed to go back to rain quickly. After chores I got caught up in making a bee feeder, I cut the boards. Stopped to put the sawblade on the tab... Read more

I keep making plans to do stuff and it doesn't get done! I wanted to get the trees in the ground on Saturday but ended up going to breed a couple of cows for a neighbor. When I got there he had misplaced one of them and was looking for her, the... Read more
Chick day and tree day!
Saturday, April 29, 2017      12 comments

Yesterday as soon as I got up I called AMC to ask if the chicks had arrived, they said no, it would be Friday. I was a little bummed because Friday was the tree sale, I don't think there has ever been a conflict between chick day and the tree s... Read more
