I have so many little things to do today that I can barely remember them all. I've already put a pineapple upside down cake in the oven and started the beef for supper. I'm really just making a homemade hamburger helper- like dish. It will have strips of lean beef, chopped onions, slices of mushroom and red peppers with a nice thick gravy and macaroni. This will be the kind of meal I will fix up then throw in the crock pot just to keep it warm until either one of us is ready to eat. We both have a lot of yard work to finish up tonight.
Since the weather has not been conducive to spraying the grapes, that will have to be accomplished today, along with my portion of the mowing. Then I need to get the netting on the strawberries. After that there are a plethora of mini-tasks that need to be done, not the least of which is getting my poor chickens some more dirt for their dust bath!!
We've worked pretty hard today and both of us got a lot accomplished. To be honest, it never ends and there is always something. You've got to love this kind of life. It's hard work but oh, sometimes when I stand back and look at all I've learned and shared, it's overwhelming. Nothing like the satisfaction of a job well done. Sometimes just breathing the air out here makes you feel good. Yeh, I know that sounded silly . . . but I meant every word!!
