Made it. . .
I made it through Monday. The truck is still not fixed, so I still without wheels. It's either raining, or some other reason we don't get it done. It rained again yesterday afternoon and through the night, but no bad storms as the weather man said. Today? More rain, so I'm on the indoor to-do list today.
I was happy to get much of the laundry out on the line and dried before more rain arrived. I missed a flower head on the rhubarb, so that was cut off too.
Apparently, there are not enough spider traps in my house. I took it outside to kill, but from checking with others, it may be a type of wolf spider.
The day went fast, but I was dragging my feet. Every little job takes up time anymore - dump egg shells, check the asparagus, get the mail, start taking laundry down, get dinner in the crock pot, etc. etc.
The hens are back to producing pretty good now, which I am thankful for.
Nothing homesteady in this post either, but a post. Hubby had a job I needed done last night, as he had my car, but got over time.
Meanwhile, Mom suggested a crocheted item for her grandson (my nephew).
Monster ice pop holders for kids! I made 3 last night, but need the felt to finish them. This on is not glued on yet, but you get to see the first one. I worked on this, while trying to watch regular TV, as the channel went in and out during the downpour.
Oh I have other half done projects, and could have been cleaning the closet, making lotion, and whatnot. But when you get up at 3am, and have been tired as heck, you get into PJ's at 4pm and get comfortable.
