This was Tuesday night. Wednesday I had the other chop etc for dinner. A cinnamon bun was breakfast and lunch the last turkey breast sandwich.
The trash guys arrived 7:30pm. So I was able to put my can away.
It is now Thursday. For breakfast I fixed 3 cinnamon buns. The plan was to save two for Friday. I ate all 3. Bad Paten. 8-(
But I have been so hungry with all the danged trees to cut down. These are quick growing... the stumps are usually under 2 inch around. I can only cut them when less then that in diameter.
There are so many more saplings all over the yard of these dang trees. It's weird that some of the branches cand grown into one of the oaks. That means that branch is really long. yet the rest of the branches are more normal sized. Weird. Then the stickers can be up to 3 inches long and painful.
This morning I pulled more of the odd sunflower bushes up - maybe a foot tall but much wider.
These I toss in the NE corner behind two pallets - it's a caddy corner using the pallets as fences - one lengthwise atop the other. If there is rain then the bushes break down. There is about 4 years worth of much there. i just haven't turned it yet.
Plus I have the composting barrel that is waterproof material on a 4 foot high coil. I add to my open compost pile every other year. Spring I will remove the compost from the bottom of the barrel. Add it to my open compost and mix well.
Then I should have plenty to put in the holes with plants and veggies that I want to grown in the hay bale.
I asked boy to please bring the 20ft tarp for his trailer so I can start layering cardboard boxes in the trailer. I hate all these boxes. IPF has insulated bags but here we get cardboard boxes.
I will have to slice the boxes up to make all the cardboard I have fit in the trailer. Small boxes I can cut up and put in my trash can. They recycle free that way. If I made a pile of cardboard they would charge me. 8-(
Ya know the first two years I was here - that's nov 2016 to Nov 2017 then to Nov 2018 - I was dealing with being overwhelmed with this place. Lawnmowers that kept breaking. Dealing with my operation and other medical stuff. Then bills out of nowhere. Then the freeze and Covid. And how big this place is and Boy not fixing my porch roof. It leaks all over I can't stand in my doorway without getting soaked, same for the back door. The fence needs to be replaced by the road. No Car... and having to figure out how to live with no access to stores. DDIL complaining that Boy spends too much time here. What?????
After the last two years I am finally able to find ways to take care of myself. Except my budget is driving me crazy.
Sorry - guess I needed to vent. Just ignore - you know most of it anyway. lolol! Same ole, same ole!
We have broken the temp record for December. Butterflies were flitting around while Charlie & I walked, played toss, etc.
It's been cloudy every day with some fog. Now temps will drop to 60's then 50s. Nights as low as 40. then back up to 70 & 80. This truy is May weather when it gets that warm.
I haven't even mentioned the inside chores I have to do. The Paperwork alone is killing me. I just wish I could have some help for a few days. especially the outside stuff. oh well, Only a few more weeks and all the recycling will be gone and all the broken stuff from the house.
I wanted to use one of the kennels as a shed. Boy is keeping one for they dogs when they move here.
I need to write you a letter and include maps as to where everything thing will be when they move here. At least they will NOT be doing the boxes, thankfully. That means one less huge trailer on my property. I want to sell a third - for it is part of the property my neighbors behind me bought. Th rectangle area goes from my fence to the street behind us. While the other two rectangles - next to each other are on our road to out wooden fence.
Odd. I'll draw pics. 8-)
OK time for lunch. Leftover stuffing.... with fried sliced beef sausage and diced new potatoes & maybe a small green salad.
I now weight 135.... YEAH!!
Have a good rest of the week. Tomorrow my IPF order and Sat my Schwans order will arrive... that should do it for the rest of December.
Hope you get caught up on your shopping. Keep warm.
