Where the heck fire this woman's been the past week is beyind me! Ugh.
So, maybe the rest of this week will be here Monday, then we'll have a final check from today thru the 6th and I'm finished dealing with them because they simply don't give a hoot what we do after that.
A blessing, even if it means no more income.
So far today, we've lowered the ears on the boys and tilled the garden. Made some headway (hee hee...no pun intended...really...) On both accounts. The boys are lessened of hair by what seems like 20 lbs. And the garden actually has some depth to the clay now.
It's a start at least. I can put some things in and give it a go and see what we get this year. Wouldn't it be nice if we could actually have a harvest around here again? Gee...just imagine. It's been a while.
The picture is the last batch of dishcloths in the farm basket. I'm working several designs out of that Big Book of Dishcloths and there are some I just can't get into and don't like. But, I wanted a selection and you just don't know until you work a few patterns what you like.
I need to get back to working today. we're working on mowing -- it needed done as much as the boy's needed haircuts! I need a couple sheep so we can keep the 'yard' down :o). Goats for the timber, rabbits and chickens for the garden compost and sheep for the grass :o). Sounds well-rounded to me.
