A few days off
Easter has come and gone and I sure hope you all enjoyed the holiday with friends and family. Here we did and spent the day with close friends cooking and eating more than we should have. A wonderful do nothing important day.
These do nothing days seem innocent enough but the truth is I don’t get to do nothing. My mind is always working to figure out the next project on my want to do list. This last do nothing day my friend and I spent an hour or so in her chicken coop and pen talking about her birds and I kept taking mental notes on how she does things. Well one thing let to another and we got on the discussion of boiling those farm fresh eggs. I mentioned to her about steaming the eggs to get them to peel easy. I was surprized to hear she didn’t know this, she is so smart and is full of great information.
Miss. Daisy and I took some time to go riding in the truck with her Puppa. We just had a short trip up to the log yard but what a good time we had. We sang songs and told knock knock jokes. I must be getting old because I couldn’t remember many of the ones I used to know. We stopped for coffee/juice and a donut on the way home.
The tomato seedlings are now ready to be transplanting into larger pots and are looking pretty good this year. I have 147 at the moment, mostly Roma for sauce and a few Brandywine for eating. I hope I don’t kill to many of them this year. Last year I went out for the day and forgot they were out in the bright sun got a bit burnt up. Woops! I have about half of them transplanted so far. I do a few as time allows.
And lastly I finished up washing all the curtains and windows in the house. I even did the ones in the cellar. Now to start on building the garden beds I will be needing very soon. It’s just about time to start the snow peas….
Have a wonderful day.
