    Whats everybody doing today?

    Been busy working on the new place and working to get the old place ready to sell and helping out Mom and babysitting the granddaughter and, oh yeah, my job. Best part of this virus nonsense is the two hours a day I get back from not commuting. So, lots of projects done around the new place...

    Whats everybody doing today?

    Been a busy few weeks. At the new place we’ve planted Honeycrisp apples, peaches, cherry, and five pines. Picked up a crabapple and weeping cherry but haven’t got them in the ground yet, nor the package of pine, holly, willow and redbud from the Conservation dept. Yesterday I transplanted...

    Work is nuts, very stressful trying to make the best decisions and simplest responses I can given the situation. Best part of the day is the quiet time in the morning and then the period of daylight between when I get home and when I go in for the night. Today I ran the chainsaw salvaging...

    @Meerkat LOL! Our “fireplace” is really a built in wood stove, and that’s because of hearing stories like your from our family and friends. We’ve used it several times since moving in and really like it.

    Watching our granddaughter and working on a better solution for my firewood until I build a proper woodshed this summer. Not fancy or original but it seems to work well and isn’t an eyesore.

    We’ve been busy moving and working, not really getting a whole lot new stuff accomplished at the new place. Every weekend we try to get a couple loads a day brought over and we are getting close, but then the job of sprucing up the old place begins. I’ve decided that whatever I get done by April...

    The drive this afternoon to the new place. Sometimes the lighting is just right.

    Hunted (saw nothing I wanted to take), worked on the new house a bit, watched football and painted this:

    Built a window seat for the den. Wanted to get the basic part done before the painters, and will build the top either tomorrow or next weekend. The cove trim is subtle but I like it.

    Built some cages out of cattle panels and t posts to protect the fruit trees. One peach is probably too far gone as a buck absolutely destroyed it. A spruce got badly damaged last winter but made it through but has already been hit again this year. Hopefully the cages will save the others...

    Yeah, I’ve never been any good at that. I am bored very easily.

    Spent most of the day organizing and cleaning the machine shed, trying to make it more efficient. Goal was to add storage for some wood we salvaged from the old barn and getting the tractor, brush hog lawn mower and four wheeler in there so you aren’t moving one to get to another. Used up quite...

    Big family get together that was both great and great to leave. Did a carving for a work giveaway each week since Thanksgiving and this is the last. Will paint and add the magnet tomorrow morning.
