Another Day Of Mowing

I don’t really enjoy doing this much mowing all at one time, but it needs to be done I guess. I got the back half of the orchard done yesterday, so today the front half, but the front main lawn needs doing as does the fenced in area. At least once it’s done, I wont have to do so much next time. I’m widening all the paths to twice the width and clearing some areas. This is to help keep the ticks down. I’ve read that once the taller grasses are mowed down, and the cuttings die, so do the ticks.
It’s going to be a long dirty day, but either way, not much else I can do, so I might as well get it done.


Went grocery shopping this morning, now I’m completely broke because of my fuckup with being overdrawn. Anyway, people…the people around here is one of the nice things about living here, the people. Stop to get gas, someone strikes up a conversation. In line to pay for groceries, someone strikes up a conversation. This happens just about every where you might go around here, just plain old nice people. One of the things I didn’t like about living down state was the people, too many are stuckup assholes.
I’m going to try and get some work done around the property today, but it looks like I might be dodging rain showers and/or thunderstorms. To do this, I had to fill a couple gas cans today, and that didn’t help with my finances, but I had zero gas, so I had to get it.


Wish I could say Happy Anniversary, but I can’t.
Now to top this day off, I’m $168 overdrawn on my bank account. Fuck! For a few weeks now I’ve been keeping enough to cover the checks I wrote to KBIC for the dumpster, well as time went by, I forgot about it. Now the checks have gone through and I’m overdrawn. I have’t been overdrawn in many years. This sucks!

I Sometimes Wonder

I do, I wonder why I work so hard around the house trying to make it look nice. Why should I care? It’s not as if anyone will ever see what I’m doing or have done. So why do it? I don’t know. Maybe it’s just a need to keep busy, I don’t know. I’ve done a number of things inside and out that I think are nice, but why, why should I give a shit, it’s just me and the dogs.
I don’t know, I just sometimes wonder way.

Not Much, Just Mowing

Not much happening today, just did some mowing. Hmm, mowing, it seems like I mow just about every day during summer. I guess that’s what I get for clearing away so much tall grasses and such. The only other thing besides work, was after dinner I sat out back with the dogs for a while. That was nice, nice and sunny and temp in the low 70s.

Here’s a photo from the other day while lost, so I guess it wasn’t a waste being lost, this was a really nice spot.
