What to do next?

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Tue Apr 18, 2006 4:49 am

I was sitting in the rocker down in the back yard with Chance sitting on my lap. It was warm and we were rocking back and forth when DR came out. He asked what we were doing. (rocking, couldn't he see) We said, nothing. Just sitting here enjoying the sunshine and trying to decide what to do next. There are always so many choices. There is never an end to things to be done. I guess it's always been that way. There were just different kinds of things to be done. Since there is just DR and I at home there just aren't so many choices having to do with kids. Our only kid close is Dan and he is nearby. DR said he wanted to empty the small wood shed. There was plenty of room in the big wood shed now. We haven't had a fire for a couple of weeks. It gets cool at night but that's good for sleeping. I told him I would help him. Well, you can't move the wood from the small wood shed to the big wood shed unless you cut it into smaller lengths. The wood in the small wood shed is four feet long and the wood in the big wood shed is about 16 inches long. So, out came the chain saw. We were cutting it and loading it into the garden wagon. One of us would take it to the big shed and stack it and the other one would get the logs out of the small wood shed and put it near the buck to be cut up. Dan came home and he started helping. We almost got it done but everyone ran out of steam. So, we stacked the rest of the four foot logs by the gate to finish tomorrow or the next tomorrow or the next one. When ever we decide we need something else to do or the stack of logs get into the way. There is a big stack to be cut anyway.
We have the big wood shed about half filled up again. By fall it will be full and we will have to decide if we want to get more for the next year.
Chance didn't help because she doesn't like the noise the chain saw makes. It was a little windy but not too bad. I wasn't sneezing too much. That mulberry tree is just loaded with pollen now. If you walk under it you can hear it buzzing. I had to stop and look up. You can see all the bees really busy. I wonder why you can't buy mulberry honey. There are enough trees around here. So, I didn't get much of my things done today. I watered everything after we quit moving wood around from here to there. DR wants to use the small wood shed for something else.
I made a list of everything I have planted in the greenhouse. There are approximately 62 different kinds of plants. It looks like almost everything will come up. I found the cucumbers today. The things that have grown the largest is the summer squash, zucchini and yellow straight and crookneck. DR really likes squash. The tomato plants are very small but it's still early to put them outside anyway. I could leave them in the greenhouse except there are probably about 60 of them and when things get a little bigger there won't be any room. Our neighbor came over this morning to ask DR if he would show him how to build a greenhouse like ours. He is 73 and a little crippled with arthritis so I think when it comes right down to doing it DR might be doing more working than showing. But being neighbors he will probably do it anyway. Well, I guess I could go and think about tomorrow. I know in the morning I will be working at the library and I told Dan that I will work on the summer reading program plans because they just have to be done by the end of the month so he can do promotions and other things that are his job to do. We may go to lunch. We generally do on Tuesday but since we will go shopping on Wednesday we may not go anywhere tomorrow. I may try to get a start on digging that area for herbs. Some of them are growing rapidly. Dooley
