Man. I’m whipped. The last few weeks have been exhausting. I built a huge above ground garden, framed by landscape timbers, four 8×4 raised beds. The seedlings are doing well in the bathroom, we have tomatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce, carrots cucumbers,melons, breakfast cereals, and fruitbats. The concrete patio is done, complete with a built-in fire pit, and stained in a leathery color. The drive has been re-graded, fill dirt and top-soil spread, and a new drive put in to the barn. I have re-directed water run off either into two strategically placed rain barrels, or, diverted away from the house via 3inch PVC I laid in the ground. I hurt in places I can no longer reach.
The chicken coop will be done, that is, inhabited by chickens as soon as i get a three day stretch of no rain. I have already measured and cut what needs to go up next. I still have to move tons of cut firewood out of the horse pens, or paddocks, if you will, and put up some fence along the holding pen. We seeded the area and placed straw everywhere.
I want to go and sit on a beach and drink tequila and look at women. But I have to wait until all this nonsense is done. Sometimes, it sucks being a grown-up.
I’ve been too busy to really think through any political stuff, except to say that, excuse me, Mr. Obama, but to hell with considering the knuckleheads that the GOP lets speak for them. Do what you promised to do, live with the results. BTW, I think its awesome that you and Michelle have a garden, and that you are paying for White House renovations out of pocket. Now go forth and get your legislation passed.
Then see what you can do about the preponderance of LED signs over in Nashville. And throw a bone to Chip over at the TNDP.
Thats all I got today.
