Rick had an appointment at Mayo yesterday and came home with this awkward but necessary boot.
This first week he can put 25% of his weight on it, the second week 50% of his weight, etc until we go back in July and he can walk on it. So…..it’s another 5 weeks.
We got home at 5 pm and I jumped on the mower – Becky stayed with the dogs and had done the chores and several more jobs for me so I was free to start mowing. 4 hours later I came in and today I just have the goat pasture and around the goose pond to mow. I’m hoping Reed and I can plant the garden today.
You guys think I do so much work BUT here’s a job I hate so it’s not even started – weeding the flower garden just outside my sewing room. I really do hate weeding and it’s always so wet and clumpy in this space.
The only plants that are supposed to be growing here are the yellowish green ones – the rest are weeds! Yuck! The kiwi vine died last winter so now I’m not sure what I’m going to do with this space.
I had quite a lot of winter kill this year – this oak leaf hydrangea and a lace hydrangea which has been here for years. Makes me sad to lose them.
I’ve got a great surprise for you and I’m going to put it in a separate post. Connie is going to show you how she picks fabric for Cobblestones – step by step. I’ll make it separate so you can find it at a later date when you may want to refer to it.
Early morning on the farm.
