Beautiful day for Outside work

Category: Yard work! | Posted: Wed May 05, 2010 3:32 pm

Today is a beautiful day. We are going to extend Chaance's yard so she has room to run. Right now her yard is small and it's filled with tubs of vegetables and herbs. The clothesline is in that yard too. I got up early and raked all the sticks out of the area. I have all the near backyard finished now. I still have some roots to dig up but that will get done later today or tomorrow. The front yard has regrown some of the weeds and brush so I need to work on that too but later in the week I think. dr made me stop trying to do everything in one day. He said I was getting too tired. I do need to get those roots cut though because we keep tripping over them. Guess we should look down more when we are out there. We are thinking of asking the teenager next door for a little help. Only thing those kids are so busy with school, chores and daily life. He just got his driver's license though and may like to earn a little money for gas, etc.
I think he already has a part time job. We'll see if he has the time.
The house is looking good inside so I'm back to trying to get a little sewing done. We are starting to go to the farm market on Friday and Saturday mornings now. I'm making an apron for the little girl next door. Yesterday I had her come and pick out the material she would like for it. She was awed! She thought I just sold aprons. She never met anyone who sewed things. I have purple thread in the machine right now so when I finish that tote bag I will change to orange thread and do her apron. I may do one for her mom, too. Those things go pretty fast.
Now, it's time to get back to work. Have a good day.

It is plain to see you haven't slowed down a bit! Dooley slow can't get everything done in a day. I know you are happy that the house is in order. And I know Chance will enjoy her larger yard. You will have to take pictures when you of your little piece of paradise.

Dooley I really enjoyed yours and dr's visit yesterday and I am planning on visiting ya'll this evening.You did look more rested yesterday.I know ya'll are much happier in your new place. I will come see it.

Gosh Dooley I just don't know how you can keep going!! You really must take some time off to simply relax.
I'll bet your neighbours will be as thrilled to bits by their aprons - just as I was. Mine is now rather mucky but, after all, it is being used in the garden. What a pleasure it is to wear it as I no longer have to take a carrier bag full of my bits and bobs around with me. Many thanks again.

Oh Dooley, this is a good posting. I really get the feeling that things are moving along there now at a good pace.

I cvan recall when I first got my drivers' license. I was took on all sorts of jobs to finance my dates. hahaha. At one point i was working so much that I had no time free when I could have askes a girl out. hahaha. Thinga had to change...but the bottom line is that young guys with an auto need money. Period. You need help with the yard....soooooooo....... good luck with him. There's no need wearing yourself completely out--why, you wouldn't be able to enjoy your yards at all then, much less feel like sewing those wonderful aprons and totebags that you produce.

Keep up the good work--and delegatre what you can. ;-)
