Bone tired

I fixed the broken oven handle I mentioned in my last post. I was born at night but I wasn't born last night. Fixing that handle was high on my list.

I also burned a mountain of debris that we've been collecting for over a year. This evening, I went out to check the pile to ensure it was safe for the evening.

There are some large pieces that I will have to move with the frontend loader on the tractor, but the rest burned. All that's left this evening are some winking embers.

My bones were weary when I came in this evening. Jilda drew a bath with all of her magic bath ingredients. As I toweled off, I felt taller.

Tonight I opened up my planner and checked a couple of biggies off my git r done list.

I can promise you, it will be an early to bed evening.

Last night, I mentioned I took a few pictures. I posted one, but here's one I held back for tonight. It's about a mile from the picture I posted last night.


  1. Lovely, lovely photo. Thank you.
    Rest well.

  2. Did you not know? We are no longer 42.

  3. I wish you had reminded me earlier:)

  4. I had to go and look at your previous post and that photo was a fair winner for sure! You did a ton and you did good! Saturday is our day for "doing" too but I'm on call and worked this morning which threw off the schedule a bit but we managed to get a few of our things off the list too. Have a good rest of the weekend...the key word here is "rest"!

  5. Burning debris isn't work, that's recreation. At least it was when I was a teen before the made it illegal in Jersey.

  6. I just had to laugh at Susan's comment and your answer. LOL
    I love the tree silhouette shot, neat. Hope you rest well, she pets you!

    A mile away, but still gorgeous!!

  8. That photo spells rest to me. Great shot.
    It should spell rest to you too.
    Hugs, Julia

  9. I had to go back one post to see why the oven handle was so important. If the handle broke on my oven, I might not notice for a week or so.


  10. I love the smell of a fire. Glad you were having a good productive day. This is another great shot with that tree
