I thought about Abbe and driving a lot last night...
The advise given to me...go slowly, take a step backwards.... I'm weakening.
Chores went smoothly this morning. When I finished, I dragged the indoor and gathered the stones I have been picking up (they appeared after it was rototilled).
I put them under the faucet where I fill the water buckets.
Check out that outdoor arena...the water is taking it's good old time disappearing.
I have a feeling I'm going to have a hard time giving up working with this cart that I love.
Next job...picking up walnuts. We have several English Walnut trees and this is a big year. There are hundreds of them on the ground and I don't want to run over them with the lawnmower. So, I picked some of them up and raked the rest under the trees.
When walnuts fall to the ground they are encased in a green shell which eventually gets soft and black. That falls off and there you have it... an end product just like you buy at the store. Several of them landed in the swing.
On to mowing the lawn. It looks so much better.
Looking through the bamboo.
Little red berries in the flower beds.
Gucci and Phoebe don't like it when I mow the lawn, so they hung out in the yard. I didn't get in the house until 11:45, but I accomplished a lot.
After lunch I headed into Brockport to run a couple of errands.
I could not find what I needed at Wegmans and had to go to the other end of town to another grocery store.
ROAD CLOSED here...DETOUR there. I had to zig and zag down so many streets...it took FOREVER!
But now you get to see what I saw.
When I got back to the Farm I made some butternut squash and pear soup, then it was back out for chores. While I was picking the pasture... the sky started screaming at me again. By 7 the horses were in and I finished up dinner. That's it...I quit. Night all.
