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.
