Applesauce Time

Today was applesauce time. The apples had to be done.

We have been working on a cane/walking stick for me. I might add a padding to the top. I am thinking about it.

It is supposed to be  cooler the next 2 or 3 days I am looking forward to that.

It Be Hot Out There

I know we may not get as hot as some places like the Lewis/Clark Valley 3,000 for down but this is hot for us. We got to 100 F. today and yesterday. It only stayed there about three hours and then dropped back into the 90's. It is down to 80 now at almost 8PM. Even the dogs wanted inside out of it. Tomorrow it's supposed to be a couple of degrees cooler.

I did manage to get a table top cloth made today as I stayed inside most of the day.

We also rearranged the living room last week. We don't have much choice but it's a little different. Also cleaned up and redid the old cup, tea pot and book shelf. A few of the books on the second shelf up are from the late 1800's up to the 1940's.

Tomorrow no matter what we have to get some outside work done. Dh isn't looking forward to all the weed eating that needs done. I hope he takes it in increments so his back won't hurt to much.

The rhubarb needs cut tomorrow as well.

The Broken Clothes Line T is Fixed

So nice to have the one clothes line T welded back together. My dh made these out of 4 inch pipe in 1994 and we dug them up when we moved and concreted them in here to use as well. So good to have it back to normal. 

 Borrowed welder. We had to haul it over and around to the front yard via the fields with a robe tied to it that I steadied it with so it wouldn't swing.

I want to wish everyone a very Happy 4th of July. A big thank you to all our ancestors that fought for our freedom. Also a big Thank you to those that have and still do.

We can see the end, of fence work that is.

The last part of the new fence that had to go up is being finished. A tree had to be gotten out of the way first and now the way is clear for the fence.

Fencing equipment.

Our friends mules are here enjoying the pastures and they just love to run in the upper field. They will be in the lower field maybe today when the fence is finished. They run up to the gate and have to stop right now and look at us like come on we used to run over there!

The farm truck is back on 4 wheels, Yay!

Lilacs Are A Blooming

Our lilac bushes finally bloomed this week. They smell wonderful.

The apple tree bloomed as well.

Looks like it is time to cut the rhubarb for the first time as well.

The truck is still awaiting some parts that had to be ordered. This was a couple days ago.

Today was another fence days, a lot of it in the rain.

Cracked Rotor

Well the 4 wheel drive farm truck has a cracked rotor. Ba humbug.

So hubby and grandson C decided we might as well replace the seals as well as the rotor and all we wanted to do is change the brakes.
