After the Work is Dancing — Sunday, April 7, 2019

Terry and I are very content with how this spot is starting to look.  After we grind down the stump, then I will plant grass.  In time, we will put up a fence, maybe a white picket fence.

Keeping this one is good

And getting this one with the new sturdy railroad ties this area will be much easier to take care of.

Now!  The spot that has me confounded.  If I didn’t have grass growing in it, then I would like it.  But I do have grass and

THAT is the problem.

A Gift of Time—Thursday, April 7, 2016

Lucky, lucky us!  Our oldest granddaughter is here for a short visit.  She will leave on Saturday; having come in Monday.

RollingTerry forgot his cell phone when he headed out this morning

Cell-PhoneGuess who took it to him!


What fun to have help in the form of a grand child!

From our heart to your world,


Finished!—Tuesday, April 7, 2015

Resetting-Pipe!Finally we are finished with all the gated pipe!  What a long job.  Although, to be fair we didn’t work at it steady, but here and there until the wind got to be too much or we got tired.


Then we would stop and go work on something else.  Blade helped us lots.  A thirteen year old boy really is a big help.

Moving-PipeThank heavens for 4-wheelers!  To have to carry… by hand… all those pipe would have been over-whelming, although, when we started out farming Terry and I DID lay the pipe by hand.

More-PipeAnyway, Thankfully we are finally done with the pipe.  NOW next step is to mark out the alfalfa, clean the cement ditch, lay out the siphon tubes and start water!  Once the water is started it won’t be turned off until harvest.


Twice a day every day (more times, if the water is short) we will change the water.  Terry says moving water is just like milking a cow…twice a day no matter what! 🙂
