We have a social function to go to tomorrow, a fair drive away. Hence the nail job. It will shock Dearest as the only nail colour I ever put on is manure brown! He thinks such colouring is stupid. But my French nails tonight make me happy. Just hope I remember to put on my engagement and wedding rings early in the morning.
May is over. Dearest and I have spent the whole week doing farm work. Which to be honest I enjoy. He wanted to take me somewhere, but only place I wanted to be was here. Maybe in August after second hay cut we can have some us time.
The hay baler and cutter are in top notch shape. I walked the fields tonight and we are almost ready for a cut. The alfalfa has yet to go to flower, but the hay is to my waist. The last three days we concentrated on cutting, slitting and moving firewood. We did about 2 cords. He cut and split ( with a splitter) and I moved wheel burrow after wheel burrow of wood to the front porch and stacked it ,where it will dry for winter. Tonight everything we have by the house is cut/ split/ moved. Ready for the 7mm of rain we are to get the next two days.
We have gone from 36C( 96F) to 7C ( 46F)right now in the course of three days. I'll take the colder temperatures over the heat for working.
Have done nothing on my yo-yo pillow all week. Must get at it.
I did get sheets in for the bed, from Sears catalogue. It is white on white in a 1 inch stripe. I liked it. I also patched all the holes daughter made in the wall by hammering nails in it to hang pictures. That was as far as I got.
Tomorrow June is upon us and heavy farm work will be here.
