This one was warmer than yesterday with very little wind. My dear husband installed our garden and pond area sprinkler system today—isn’t he the best!!! No more dragging hoses around, YEA!!!
I quilted a few hours today, made lunch and about mid-afternoon got a burst of energy—decided to do some weed whacking!!! By the time I was finished whacking all the weeds around here and the ones down at the road by the worm fence, my burst of energy had departed! Michael’s burst of energy this afternoon led him to apply two tanks of weed spray to our never ending supply of weeds.
Michael wanted to adjust the head gate at the top of our irrigation ditch this morning so that became our walk—it is a beautiful walk—different views of the mountains, lots of trees and running water in the irrigation ditch.
That’s our house in the bottom of this photo—when we are coming back from the location of the head gate you can see our roof. Our other house on the ranch we used to own was built way up on a hill and had awesome views but also had some awesome wind!!! When we decided to build a new house we did what the old timers did—nestled the house into a coulee/gulch. The original homestead cabin for this land sat on the same spot as our current house. There were foundation rocks and an old abandoned well here by the creek. While we love our house by the creek, we do miss those views at times!
