Hired Hand

While Michael walked Emmi this morning I made a flying trip into town to deliver some fabric samples to Barb and to pick up a quilt from Jane for quilting. 

Homemade spaghetti for lunch then it was off to the West Boulder.

Michael needed a hand today with some grass seeding on the road project he has worked on this summer and fall.  He was going to operate the excavator while I ran the grass seeder—thus I was the hired hand today, forgot to ask him what he pays!!!

It was simply a beautiful day to be outside! 

IMG_0987 I climbed the hill using my little hand held grass spreader and Michael puttered along moving rocks, grading, etc.  Once we got to the top, I headed back down with Emmi spreading more grass seed as I went.  When I ran out of seed, Emmi and I sat down on a rock to wait for Michael and the bag of grass seed.

While sitting I heard this strange noise, thought it was a squirrel but the sound kept getting closer and closer.  Out of the corner of my eye I saw movement--IMG_0988 There were four turkeys within 20 feet of me!

The land on which we were working sits right on the West Boulder River.  See what a nice day it was to be outside!!IMG_1001


  1. looks like it was a beautiful day to be outside!!!

  2. Your PAY??? My goodness, just look around. there is your pay! Beautiful!

  3. Better 4 turkeys than a bear! One of those has been busy with our compost bin. Beautiful pictures on a beautiful day. The pay is being healthy, happy and enjoying the beauty and blessings of the creator.

  4. Sure glad that noise was just turkeys and not bears - yikes!

  5. I'm jealous about your fall colors. Here, at the coast it is tood warm and most leaves turn from green straight into brown.
