Getting Stuff Done

17 Jun

I’ve been working on getting a lot of projects done that I just couldn’t get around to before I was done working for the summer.  Of course, some of them require help because I don’t have the equipment or skills to do them on my own.

But progress is being made!  First, my dad sent a mower out so I can mow myself.  The first thing I did was mow behind the giant rock pile.  Yay!  That is much better.

It also has allowed me to get the wheelbarrow through there so I could clean out the garage.  Of course, I had to put air in the tire before I could get started.

I haven’t been able to get it done since I had livestock in there all winter.

That was quite a task, and even though it’s scooped, I still have a lot of cleaning and rearranging to do yet.

My nephew stopped by one day and spread out a bunch of the rock.

I’m liking that!  No more water ponding in front of the garage door.  I might also be able to put something besides the Ranger in the south side of the garage.

I’ve also prepped the milk room door for a stoop to be placed there.

We’re going to move this big concrete slab to try and keep the mud out of my milk/soap rooms.

Because I didn’t have a mower for a while (and my push mower might not work since the goats took the gas cap off last winter and I don’t know how long it sat there like that), I ordered a machete and a weed eater.

I’m really liking delivery.  I’ve started waging war on the weeds around my farm.  The machete is necessary to get rid of all the huge cockle burrs.

I can actually see my front gate and not fight through tall grass to get it open.  I’m liking the weed eater, but I went through the whole battery life in no time flat.  Obviously, this is an ongoing project.

Another delivery was replacement clothesline because the goats might have chewed the old line to bits.  I had some, but I didn’t have enough to do the whole thing, so it should be here soon.  I’m hoping to use it for all my laundry this coming weekend.

I washed the llama coat I made last winter

These tasks have been keeping me quite busy lately, and I have a lot more of these small home/farm improvement jobs planned.
