We are now into Tuesday and haven’t recovered from a really busy weekend that left little time for resting, sleeping or watching TV. (As if we do any of that regularly anyway...) It has been so busy that I don’t think I can give you a rundown in chronological order if I wanted to, so I will simply fill you in as best I can.
In the last four days, we have finished the run-in shed (it is roofed), we finished the pasture, installing the four foot, 2x4 wire fencing inside, had all our boys sheared...and returned them to the farm. They are all here now, with the exception of Max, our Llama who is still at Isabelle’s farm. She owned him and will keep him there with the last two alpacas she has, relinquishing him to our farm when she is ready to move, or wants him to come here.
Yesterday in the morning we brought the boys home from Isabelle’s farm and worked on the garden, where Vick and friends put the perimeter boxes in place for the vineing plants like green beans and peas. That way she is not wasting raised beds in the center of the garden with those types of crops.
While they were doing that, I installed all the posts for the fencing which is to keep the chickens and ducks out of our yard and over by the barns. (Hope that works... LOL...) Anyway, we’re right on track with our plans, even though I pulled something in my right wrist while trimming Luke’s toenails on shearing day. They were really heavy and when I squeezed the handles on the cutters, something in my wrist popped and yesterday morning, I couldn’t use may hand at all, until later in the day and several doses of ibuprofen kicked in....
Today....the fingers on that hand are numb, making it difficult to type or do any of my other necessary tasks. Ahhhhhhh, such is life....then you die!
I do believe I better clean off the mower deck and check the belts, blade, etc. and try mowing a little here and there. It’s really starting to look ratty around the Pupskill pond lake stream cove inlet.
ALSO....here is an updated bulletin on the fund raiser for Matthew Rosiello from Bill, our son in Long Island:
