There is always something to do!

There is always something to do!

August 19, 2015

It has been a busy , hot, dry month so far. The rain has just decided not to fall here I guess. I made our second cutting hay last week. The amount was small, but I am still thankful for the feed. I have been cleaning up around the back pond and sugarhouse, nothing like a fire on a hot day 😮

Yesterday, I got a call from a friend about some trees being taken down. The wood was free for the taking. I went after a load for next year’s sugarwood. It seems I chase firewood all year, but this was an easy score. They even loaded it for me. I was very glad, because I have been nursing a sore back for the last several days.

We put the sugarhouse tank in it’s place. It still needs to be moved a little bit then plumbed up to the evaporator, but it is inside. Progress can be seen around the farm as we clean up corners, mow brush and repair fences. It’s time to wean the calves, so a noisy place this will be for a day or two. The calves think they need the milk, but moms need to rest as they await the next generation.

School has started here. Some of my help has now faded until the weekend or an occasional evening after school. I am glad that the big projects are complete. We continue to pick away at the small stuff, putting equipment away as we finish jobs. The hay tools have mostly all been cleaned and stored away. The days are getting shorter and the leaves are starting to turn. Winter will be upon us soon, but for now, I will continue to cram as much into each day as I can, living life to the fullest and cleaning up as I go!
