A Really Busy Day

We started the first day after our nice vacation at a dead run.  A walk first with Emmi then I filled the weed sprayer tank and took off to spray those pesky weeds that just seem to keep coming back.

Since all the rain we had in late May we haven’t moved the motorhome back into its normal spot for fear it would sink.  Michael decided to move the motorhome this morning and while he was moving it dumped the tanks. 

Michael fired up the swather and traveled a short distance up the road to cut the small patch of hay on our neighbor’s property.  The hay is very thick and damp this year making our old swather work very hard!  After lunch he finished that piece and we transferred the swather down the road to cut the much bigger piece of hay ground for our new neighbors Max and Dave.

I did multiple loads of laundry, mowed the grass, and made dinner for Joe, Tammy and their two sons, Patrick and Jeff.  We had hamburgers on the grill with potato salad.  The boys helped us finish off the chocolate ice cream and I took the rest of the cream cheese pound cake down to their house late yesterday—got to rid the house of all that fattening stuff. 

We had a very enjoyable evening with Joe, Tammy and the boys—Patrick will start his junior year at Colorado School of Mines this fall and Jeff will start college at Montana State University in Bozeman.  It will be nice to have Joe and Tammy here more often!

  1. At least the weather has been cooperating a whole lot better this week. Your yard really is beautiful. Take time to enjoy it.

  2. Your backyard looks just great!

    Sounds like you both had a very busy day.

  3. Wish I could help you out with that fattening food but probably better off to stay far away from it.

  4. It seems the wetter the Spring, the lusher is the summer foliage.

  5. Whew... you make me tired just reading about all you got done!
