Well, Fuck It, No Outing Today

Been up since midnight with the dogs due to thunderstorms, and as I type this, it’s really rockin’ out there. So anyway, not looking good for getting out of the house, again. Even if the weather gets better, I haven’t had any sleep, so, fuck it.

Update: That first line of storms brought just over an inch of rain in 1 hour.

Yard Work Day

I got quite a bit mowed today, front, sides, back, and some of the apple orchard. It started to rain, so I quit. The lawns have needed mowing for a while now, but I haven’t felt like doing it, like no reason to. I hope, even pray, that I’m not mistaken for caring again.
Looks like the rest of the day will be, well, nothing, it’s too rainy, hot and humid to do much else.
I do plan on getting and about tomorrow, it’s been far too long since I’ve gone out to enjoy myself, almost a month. So unless it looks like an all day torrential downpour all day, I’m heading out.

Here’s some photos from yesterday of the fruit around the house starting to come out.

Pears

Cherries

Raspberries

Change in Plans

I was planning on taking today off from work, but changing to Wednesday for a couple reasons. One, Mondays seem busier at work and two, there’s some rain coming tonight/tomorrow so the trails wont be so dusty Wednesday. Also with a little rain and warmer temps, the wild flowers should be really popping out.
So anyway, that’s the plan.

To-dos Around The House

Got a few things done today, but didn’t work all that hard, sort of a relaxing day really. I am planning to take tomorrow off to get out and into the woods.
One thing that has bugged me for quite some time is where a burn barrel was. It was right out on the main side lawn and stuck out like a sore thumb. So, I moved it…at last.
I’ll update this post with more lilac photos.

Yard without a burn barrel

Forget-me-not

I have no idea what these are. They have a stem sort of like snake grass, but smooth it’s whole length and the flower is similar to clover. The leaf is similar to the stem.
Update – These are wild Chives. Time for a baked potato! 🙂

Staying Home, Wrong Weekend

I was going to go out and about today, but it’s free ORV, fishing, state park, and everything else day. The normally quiet trails will be busy today, so the hell with it. I’m thinking of taking tomorrow off from work to get out, I badly need to get out from the house, the only time I’ve left is to go grocery shopping in the past 3 weeks.
Oh well, I have a pretty good list of things that need doing around the house anyway.
