I managed to get all the dirty laundry on the line, however, I did have to chase a few pieces that flew off in the high winds. Life would be boring if I did not attempt such tasks.
The cupboard piece (for the trash can door) is finally painted, but we need to buy hinges yet.
Hubby is onto the next item(s) on his list now. He's been difficult to motivate these last few days. I think he's hankering another weekend of playing hookie (ha ha!). A good work day outdoors should rectify that problem.
Although it's a bit wet out, we've started cleaning up the garden. I trimmed the grass around all of the fruit trees and elderberry trees. They are all looking great.
I have seen at least five red lady bugs this spring. I believe that is a record here.
I attempted to weed the herb garden, but to no avail, it's too wet. I've also forgotten how big my gardens are. I put the garden tools away, and headed out to split and stack wood. We got a good start on next winter's wood, and we have plenty to cut and split this year. I'm not sure I can motivate Hubby to go to town for a new chainsaw blade today. I really want to get crackin' on those huge pieces, still eye-sores in the yard. I know we'll be sleeping good every night.
This is the first tulip to start blooming at the homestead. I see a few did not come up. Most likely moles are the culprit. I will plant more this fall, but will need to plant them with daffodils and/hyacinths to keep the moles away. I'll keep pouring on the old coffee and coffee grounds too. The acid in the dirt helps deter them too. I'll have to remember to walk the dogs where ever I see tunnels too (so they can pee on them).
The cooler weather requires longer drying times for my laundry, so it's getting taken down right at dinner time. It was nice to see my 15 year-old help Hubby prepare vegetables for dinner. They however, forgot to prepare the rice, ha ha! We had to wait a bit longer to eat.
