So Much To Do, it should have already been done..

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.

Hi Barb it was so lovely catching up and finally meeting you last Saturday...Thank you for the chokoes I've planted two of them and yesterday I fried up two in a little olive oil for breakfast with a squeeze of lemon juice and a little salt and pepper they weere delicious. I also lightly fried 5 of them last night to have with our left over hedgehogs cooked in our thermal cooker the night before. I'd love you to come for lunch one day when you feel like a drive let me know...I've been outside ejoying this beautiful weather.
