WHAT?.....no pictures yet!!!!

I know I was suppose to be posting pictures....but shit happened.

got the post set and got the screws out to start assembling...normally in the past the box had a driver for the head of the screw in the box....not today...and i had to go all the way to TH to get one...soooo, I went to see Grace and my daughter who is off on Thursdays...then by the time I get home it’s too hot to work on the fence till evening....I mowed

will be back on the fence in a couple hours when the sun gets behind the trees...getting wimpy in my old age...


8:37 update......got the easy part done and found out the screw heads weren’t big enough for the hinges....gate frames are done though so tomorrow will be easy peasy...

A morning thought...

As the sun fought to raise it’s weary self over the horizon

setting the lingering rainclouds on fire

I wondered how your face would look in the predawn glow

I’m sure it would make getting up to take care of morning tasks a bit more difficult

the garden might suffer a few more weeds and the chickens would complain a bit

but I’m afraid it would all wait just a little longer for me to show up

unless you longed to see the sunrise like the kid in me....

soaked

2 1/2 inches of rain in 36 hours....we don’t need anymore...the corn that was in such dire need is standing in 6 inches of water...hope it survives

Raining on Sunday




                tears again for what will never be                
                 dreams die slowly and painfully                  
                                or is it just the rain?

rambling....

sitting here waiting for the sun to get lower in the sky....it isn’t hot today unless you are in the sun so I will doing the push mowing just before the sun sets...about 30 minutes on a ditch...

Friday I will hit the fence hard and might get it mostly done...need to call Bob and see where the keys are so I can move his SUV....they seem to be enjoying the week in Orlando with the kids..I really wanted this done when they got back Sunday...lots of little fires popping up to put out...got his pool running fine though, he will be happy about that.........

the girl that made duck egg noodles for me is AWOL so I am shopping for another noodle maker..everyone claims to be the best but we are testing them...then I will start paying...one of those things I didn’t pay attention to in mom’s kitchen...not that I wanted to learn how to make them anyway
