Fun and productive weekend

The show last night didn't end until late and we didn't want to drive two hours home so we got a room. We got home this morning at 9 a.m.

Jilda and I both had a list of todos as long as a fresh roll of TP.

The first think on my list was to cut the grass. Well, either that or buy some goats.

Not only did I cut acres of grass on our property, but I also had to cut the sides of the road in our community.

I have an agreement with the county commissioner. I keep the roadside cut and he doesn't use herbicides that could hurt my bees.

When we drove in this morning, I knew I needed to cut the roadside today. All I need is for a neighbor to call the commissioner and complain about the grass.

Anyhow, I did that and I also hauled in fill dirt into the new chicken pen. I'm hoping we can finish up tomorrow and turn the chick loose in their new playground.

This evening, I am drained. We'll drink some hot tea here soon and hit the hay.

I hope you all have had a remarkable weekend so far.


  1. I admire you for taking on the road sides to save the bees. My nephew, a jr. "Bee Keeper" brought me a pint of honey today. He took 20 gallons, but i did not understand. He was stung 7-10 times because the 'bees swarmed the supers' but his mentor was there with a leaf blower to blow them away. I will have to find out what he meant later. But I just tasted the honey, it is great!
    So just relapse for the nite!

    1. Supers are the boxes that contain the frames where the bees make the honey.
      They are like enclosed racks of honey.

  2. What a great way to save the bees - despite the work.
    Enjoy your relaxing evening.

  3. Sounds like you had a busy day. My son cuts the byway down to the bay (500' long by 60' wide -goes between his house and a neighbor's house. That way he parks his boat on "his side" of the right of way and they don't bother him. Trade-offs work well sometimes.

  4. Busy man! Mowing in summer isn't easy, but you managed!

    The flower at the end...what is it? Looks like a lilac.

  5. You are one busy guy! I do the mowing on the Pines and I can't imagine doing the roadway too!
