Getter Done!!!

The facts are I try to get too much done when I know hubby is coming home...He is particular and is a harda*#...And not much is up to snuff on a regular basis. I try but NO ONE could be that perfect...It is a laughable challenge for me...And I have learned that it would be impossible to even come close. Although I found myself looking rather like my hubby when I put the closet maid organizer together...All the parts lined up, all the tools lined up and a clean surface to work on. I had it done in no time and installed....screwed to the wall as well....Anyway I am going to figure out how I can get the carport a little more cleaned up...and the house has already been scrubbed. So today after the two boys ( hired hands) get outta school I'll put them to work...I've now named them " Flash and Poke ) I am giving Poke a chance to keep up and work as hard as Flash...you know a little competition is great motivation..Anyway I really have no hope for Poke ....

I know that spring is around the corner and that I might have a few days that I'll be able to get into the barn and toss out/donate what is no longer needed or wanted. In the mean time I'm planning on getting the garden shed back together and then finish up the taxes all but for two numbers which I await. You know there is always a hold up of some sort....

Last night the fog was thick, so much I could not see the barn less then 50 feet from the opened bedroom window.. I heard voices, girls hollering and laughing it hit me that they where near the barn or in it... I laid there for a few minutes to hear what they were talking about...up to no good!!!So I yelled out the window "you girls have one minute to get off this farm just long enough for me to get my boots and my gun, get the hell outta here" I cocked the gun in the window and then I heard them cuss, and then scurry off. I never did bother to get outta bed...I figure they will not return....

Well kids it is off to the chores, and maybe a few more sips of coffee..Keep warm, be well and have an easy day....BTW Queen Mother : Can you show a photo of the corner rose bush? It sounds wonderful!

I swear, God puts stupid people on my planet for his idea of practical joke right? I cannot believe those girls had the gall to come onto the property..Didn't you put NO Trespassing signs upon the fences? I thought you did. I'd like to hear their explanation to their momma or the sheriff out there of why they where in or near the barn..

Here's hoping you scared the living Pee out of them! Maybe you should hook the electric fence up to the front gate...

The rose bush didn't make it but there is a great burning bush there now. If I can find a picture of it in all its glory I will send it. Or Pa will.

I can't believe someone would have the nerve to trespass on your property and then be loud enough to be heard in the house. That's nuts!
