I felt gray and dreary
but the skies were blue despite how I felt.
Spring is closer than it has been all year and I seem to get further and further behind on projects that should have long been finished.
The house is getting emptier. Currently my office chair is sitting on five sheets of plywood in the computer room floor waiting for repair jobs. I get out of my chair and it rolls a way but don't want to leave the wood out in case it rains. These are for repairs within the house...when I get around to it. I need a whole bucket full of round tuits...then maybe I could get some things done.
Replacement parts for the tractor auger cost over two hundred dollars, the lumber past a hundred and a half. It's discouraging but we have the parts and materials for different projects so maybe, just maybe, before the snow flies again, we can finish up some repairs.
My followers are increasing on both of my blogs so that is a pure delight. I am always honored and amazed that people want to read what I write.
Weather wise, we are dry as a bone, the dirt roads boil dust as we travel but the green still battles to reach the light. I do believe spring has almost arrived, dressed in flowery undergarments and filling the air with an exotic perfume.
Oh, the repairs and projects we have to do far out number the times we can find to do them. I am bound and determined before the deep heat of summer we will have the stock corral finished with the head gate so cattle working will be much easier. The home repairs will be done as we continue to thin, thin, thin. Old pieces of family history will find a permanent home here and other pieces will find new happy homes with some one else. The tornado damaged barn may actually get completely repaired this year and tools will find their way back to the shop.
I have a magic wand, you know, and like Merlin in the Sword and The Stone, I will wave my wand and things will dance into their proper places. Hey, I can dream, can't I?
Mondays at work are always hectic and this Monday was no exception. I go in early to catch up, work through lunch to catch up and find myself further behind at the end of the day than I was at the beginning. My customers are happy, I think, I help them with paperwork, wrap their packages and just lend an ear and they seem to appreciate it.
The old big F the doctor assigned me makes my muscles cry out and my bones ache but I go on...smiling and helping the best I can.
Our biggest disaster today was Lil, the lead butt Border Collie stepped on Andrew's tv remote and that no longer works...one more thing on hubb's list to pick up tomorrow. This disaster has shut down Andrew's music, his games and his movies.
Hubby presented his present to Marcy...new fishing line and some fishing lures...the crappie will be biting and fresh fish to catch here At The Farm. Marcy does love to fish!
I dragged my aches and complaints to bed and know tomorrow is another day. Oh, the promise it holds!!!
