It’s time! The range cows should be here in two weeks or less. We spent time checking the fences along the North, East and West sides of our place. They are not in too bad of shape, we fixed a little here and there, a broken off pole, a sagging wire–we still have to fix part of the fence where the Ditch Rider’s cut along the North side next to the main road.
Later on this week we will work on the South side and down by the other house. Terry wants to have two dead trees cut down along the fence line in the yard of the other house. One was hit by lightening in the summer and the other is rotten and leaning into the main road.
I DREAD this job! Those trees are HUGE and OLD and full of WORK! He has a call into a tree service now.
I know I’m being cynical but I know how all this goes….the tree people cut down the trees then leave.
The tree people would clean everything up but the cost is exorbitant, so ‘we’ say ‘we’ will clean everything up.
The last time we did a nasty big tree job like this our son wasn’t working, our son-in-law had winter break at school, and another young man was bored and came over to lend a hand. It took all of them, the tractor and loader, a wagon and myself to get everything out of the field. (We paid everyone, I fed everyone; so was a win-win!)
This time everyone is working or has moved. Sigh!
So now that I’ve throw my fit, I just have to get my head around this new set of work and move on. Fits never accomplish anything…I don’t know why I thought I needed to throw one. 😦
Then while I was dreading the tree cutting job…the earth gave me a gift. A rock in the shape of a heart. All I need to do is take one day at a time…everything always works out for the best — if you just let it.—as my Momma always said. 🙂
