I am thinking about redoing the footing in my corral and hope the hubby will help me. I think we will have to get the wood done first (with my help) then maybe I can talk him into it. I will find out how much sand is going to cost me first.
Today is a day of cleaning chicken houses, or at least the nest boxes. Then work on trying to find the workbench so the hubby can see it again. BEFORE you ask, yes, he actually wants me to mess up his mess ;=) , then it is off to get groceries and then a massage, and finally going to ride Sirocco. Boy, I am tired just thinking about it!
Have a great day.

It is the hard way, but for us simple folk, we like to do things the old fashion way!
Saturday we put up 12 pints of grape jelly (after the canner sprung a leak then, had to go buy a new one) and then, I froze some sweet peppers, broccoli and cauliflower. I put up some more horse fence yesterday. That pretty much took care of our weekend. We also drove the motor home over to our mechanic so, he could go over it and have it inspected for us. Hopefully within a week we will be able to at least take it on one camping trip for a weekend. We shall see.
Hope you have a great day.

Today is a much better day than yesterday. Most of the time my house really doesn't bother me much. I think if I was still having the dreaded PMS thing, that would of been my excuse ;=) I have lived with it for over 20 years. So, thank you for sympathies! I feel much better.
Today is going to be filled with putting up more horse fence so they can have some green grass, and putting up some grape jelly, freezing just a few veggies. Hope you all have a wonderful day.

I apologize for the complaining, I really do have a wonderful family and a wonderful husband, that works his butt off to give us all what we do have! I guess the older I get the less I like the clutter and mess. I guess I went years with the miss matched furniture and the second hand junk that it would really be nice to walk into a house that was a little bit better put together.
I sure hope your day started better than mine!

I want to say a Happy Birthday to my wonderful mother-in-law. She has been a wonderful person in my life and not to many people get to say that they like their mother-in-law. I do love mine. I hope you have a wonderful day today. Love Matt, Lisa, Tawny and Kegan.
Today is my shopping day and I have made it a tradition to try to go see one of my favorite aunts-in-law also. She even told me last week that she missed seeing me when I went to NJ with Matt.
Hope you have a wonderful day.

I have just a little more cleaning in the motor home and then I will take some photo's. It took quite some time to get it clean. It sparkles now ;=) Pictures maybe tomorrow.
It has been a pretty quiet week so far. Not a lot going on. I should be out mowing lawn, weed eating and so on. I keep trying to get the son to get it done. He always has the excuse that he doesn't get home from work early enough. (sigh)
Have a wonderful day.

The guys worked on getting one of our sheds cleaned out (only because they needed it for their engines!). While they did that, I worked on getting our new motor home cleaned. Have to go through and get rid of some mold from it sitting for so long without use. It is coming along well, I am going to finish doing the cleaning today then the hubby is going to take it to have our mechanic go through it and make sure it is road worthy. I will have pictures in the next couple of days.
I really have to get to weaving, it seems like things take me away from it way too long. I will have to start going to the barn early and not leaving until late. That way no interruptions! (I have no phone out there!)
Have a great day.

These are the tires that came with the tractor.This is the size that actually should go on the tractor. The pictures really only give a small idea on the difference in the sizes.
This week is a week of relaxation. I went with the hubby to NJ for the rest of this week. We finished with the fair on Tuesday afternoon and then took off for NJ. I decided that being as the week was just about half over, I would come down with him. I did computer work, reading, catching up on sleep; then when the hubby came back to the hotel we went out for supper to the Outback restaurant. It wasn't too bad, the hubby and I prefer going to the Longhorn but it is a hour away from the hotel. We decided that is too far to go just for supper after he worked all day.
Have a wonderful day.

It has been a very busy week. We were at the fair the whole week with the hubby and son's hit and miss engines. It was a very hot week. We are going to try to do the fair again next year but with a little more planning. This year was a spur of the moment thing. As some of you know, my horse was there and did quite well. Someone else rode him. I am hoping to be able to learn how to show him and ride him myself next year. We shall see. So, it is possible that next year at the fair will be busy. Showing engines and showing horses!
Hope you have a great week.
