One Country Block

 Karen finally had a morning off and I soloed.  Miss Berlin was waiting for me.
 Fortunately, the girls have been getting plenty to eat in the pastures and my second cutting grass is holding out well. 

 After chores I decided to go for a trike ride before it got muggier.  We hit 85 this afternoon.
Headed south and went around the block we live on...about 4 miles.
The first thing I saw was all these poppies growing next to the road.
 Then I headed east and had a medium hill to tackle...no problem, even tho I have no gears.

 Got to the corner and headed North.

 Turned West on Beadle.

 When I got back to the farm, Carol and Topper drove in to get some rhubarb and brought us a bag of bagels...how thoughtful are they?  There were two magazines on the porch from Oregon and realized that I missed meeting Sara (who was also coming up for some rhubarb).  My trike ride took longer than I thought. Fortunately, Carol and Top were happy to drop it off on their way home.
 Gary put in another long day at Sara's.  The place was out of control jumpin'.
I worked on a piece I am going to submit to a local paper about my Journal and eventually got dinner ready.
 Fresh coleslaw, a new batch of roasted potatoes
 and leftover drumsticks and pork loin from last night.
 Chores at 7:30.

 While I was in the barn it started to rain.  We actually need it.

 Got the girls tucked in and was damp by the time I got back to the house.
 Sidney was guarding the joint and staying dry.
Night all.


  1. Looks like you have nice roads to ride and great scenery to keep you from getting bored. Good luck with your article.

  2. After that winter, I'll not complain about the heat. Headed to 89 this afta. I'm happy.

  3. What a nice route; thanks for taking us with you, and we didn't have to expend any energy or sweat. :)) xx
