My Busy Week

30 May

Most of what has kept me so busy this week (besides teaching) is my yard.  I finally got it mowed for the first time.  I couldn’t let someone come in and mow it when the grass was 2-feet tall (literally).  I didn’t think that was safe, so three evenings and seven hours later, it’s almost done.  I still need to clear and mow the garden space since I’m not going to plant one this year.


The kids are really getting to be a pain.  I can’t keep them out of my yard.  Fez doesn’t want to go into the barnyard at all.  Sadly, he’s finished off my gate.  I even found Victoria in the yard the other day because the gate is in such bad shape.  I’m trying to figure out how to replace it.

Finally, I had to build a pen around what used to be the chicken pen and clean out the building and spray and re-bed it.  That’s the job I finished around ten o’clock last night.  I had Penny and Muffin shut in today so my mom could check them.  No kids yet.

I do think Clover is due the 2nd also.  I let them out for the weekend since I’m here, but I’ll shut them back in Monday.

      I’m hoping at least one of the three has their kids before I go back to work. My mom is hoping they all do. 🙂

    It never ends, does it, Teresa. I did not know that you were still working… I know you must be very tired.

      This week has been exhausting. Before that it was just the toe pain slowing me down. I’m really looking forward to summer break.

    I used to work at a nature reserve where we kept patches of grass short in amongst the longer grass (it was good for reptiles) and in spring it felt like the grass would grow two feet high over-night! I feel your pain!

      Thanks. I really wish it hadn’t been that long, but I broke my toe right when I was going to mow it, and I only have a push mower. Kinda had to wait.

      Farmwork really is never ending. It will be much easier when I’m done teaching for the year.

    Hope you can relax a little this weekend!

      It’s always a more relaxed pace even if I’m working on the farm. I always work on the farm. 🙂

    Oh my! If you only have a push mower, how on earth did you manage to get two foot tall grass mowed? I hope, too, that several mamas deliver this weekend! And I hope all goes well!

      It wasn’t easy, but it’s done. That’s all that matters! 😉

    Naughty Fez!
    Only one more week of school – yay!

      He and Gretel are twin trouble makers. 🙂

    Cutting the grass sure can be a chore…and I have only 2/3 of an acre to cut! The grass really CAN grow mighty fast.

      My broken toe really put a kink in my mowing plans. It’s done now!
