In a blog post titled Books And Bees 10 days ago, I wrote that we had mowed our lawns and most of the main pasture, leaving the area where Terry’s fruit trees are untouched because it was full of clover that the bees were happily enjoying. I also left the back pasture behind the barn […]

For the last three weeks or so, we have been commenting on how high the grass is getting in our front and side yards, and in the pasture. It was definitely time to mow the grass, however there is so much clover out there feeding the bees that we kept putting it off. We finally […]

On To Another Project

I spent a couple of hours yesterday removing the shredded deer fence that didn’t stand up to the elements and pulling up the last of the T-posts from around the fruit trees. All but two of them came out fairly easily, but those two that didn’t were darned difficult! It took a lot of pushing […]

More Tractor Time

Though our grass really needed it, I was disappointed that it rained all day Friday because I wanted to take advantage of the slightly cooler weather to get a lot of work done outside. But as it turns out, Mother Nature never consults with me ahead of time. However, yesterday turned out to be a […]

Sometime Today

I had hoped my new book, A Changing World, would be live on Amazon by now, but I was wrong. Hopefully it will be, sometime today. I have had books go live in less than an hour, and other times, though rarely, it has taken over a day. As soon as I get the word […]

Yesterday UPS delivered several boxes of things Terry had ordered from Amazon, along with three copies of the print edition of Big Lake Drunk, which I added to my bookshelf. I started out the day by writing most of another chapter in my new Tinder Street book, which involved quite a bit of research on […]

Terry’s New Ride

A while back, somebody asked me how come I’ve got a nice Mustang and a fancy pickup truck to drive around in, and also a Kubota tractor, and a Kawasaki Mule, while poor Miss Terry didn’t get anything. How fair is that? When it comes down to it, Terry would much rather have a pickup […]

In yesterday’s blog I told you about how our son Travis helped me take down part of the fence on our pasture, get the deer fence started around our fruit trees, and move a bunch of pallets to the barn so I could store my tractor implements out of the weather. As I said in […]

We had a nice sunny day yesterday so we took advantage of it to get a lot of work done outside. First thing in the morning I picked up our son Travis at his place and brought him back to ours to work on several projects. The first order of business was to take down […]

So Much To Do

We have so much to do around here if the weather would cooperate. After hard rains Friday and half of Saturday, yesterday was a bright, sunshiny day with a good breeze blowing. We need a lot more days like that. I spent most of the day researching and writing, getting another chapter done in my […]

I guess spring really is here. The rose bushes along our front porch are starting to have flowers on them. I have seen pictures posted by the former owners of our place and the bushes are beautiful when in full bloom. I’ve told you several times about the deer that come into our pasture to […]
