Over the next month or so I am going to be busy. I will not know from one week to the next what days I will be here. Husband will be coming and going I know not when.
And tonight the son was out here and says he heard a fox. He reckons it was just out the front of the yard. I do not want a fox here if I am not going to be here. Well, I don't want them here even if I am here but you all know what I mean. I can't do much about it though as the main pen has too many chooks to be locked up overnight and though I am going to separate some of them into other smaller pens...I hope that the foxes don't come.
Because I don't know when I will or wont be here I have been trying to get the yard cleared up. It's an ongoing process made harder because I do not put away after myself. I have been spending the last couple of days mowing out the front, cleaning out chook sheds, mowing the front yard. I have planted out dozens of onion seedlings given to me by a daughter. Thanks L, they are in. I have weeded and mulched, cut back and mulched, pulled out and will mulch that area today sometime. I have more mowing to do. Lots more but it wont all get done today. My house needs some looking after and that is on todays list as well. I need to cook up a big pot of soup, some to take some to freeze. And I really want to get a bikeride in...I need to pack some warm clothes and some food that doesn't need refrigeration. And a pile of books because where I am going doesn't have TV or computer. How will I cope without my internet! If I can see to read at night, there will be light!, I will read otherwise I'll be in bed early. But so much to do before I go...
Best get out there and make a start though it is too wet to mow yet and too cold to garden...Might get that ride in then start.
