Busy Weekend, Busier Weeks Ahead

It's amazing what you can accomplish in two days when you make a list and stay focused.  Aside from our usual weekend errands and chores, we moved out a new round bale for the horses, made a batch of liquid laundry soap (3 month's worth), picked, cleaned and dehydrated three trays of plums (courtesy of our neighbor who has free access to our figs), planted a bed of Swiss Chard and harvested another batch of green beans from the garden.  I even had time for a short ride in the front paddock this evening.  It feels good to come to the end of the weekend and see that much was accomplished.

I start 10 weeks of overtime at my job next week, so most of what gets accomplished around here will likely be done by Yeoldfurt.  I'll be working 10 to 11 hour days and factoring in 1-1/2 hours of drive time each day, I won't be up to much more than making dinner and cleaning up the kitchen when I get home.  But the extra money will be nice and it's only 10 weeks.  I can do anything for 10 weeks.


  1. You two had a big weekend!! We had mostly cold and rain.

    It's good to hear you'll be getting some extra time in, possibly a mixed blessing, but maybe an answer to some prayers too.

    If you get a moment, please answer my last email so I can get you the information you asked about.

  2. Sounds like you guys had a busy, productive weekend.

    Sorry about all the overtime, but like AKA said it could be a mixed blessing. Catman always seems to get overtime just when we need it most. :)

    Have a good day and be safe doing all that drive time.
