It was 82* at 5:45 this morning... - Random babblings of a fiber-obsessed nutcase

and it's just going to get hotter. :sigh: This is NOT normal for this time of year - it should be in the low 90*s, yes, but NOT at 7 AM!

My wrist hurts - I guess 2 hours of goofing around with the violin isn't good for it. :grin: Need to try and keep it at an hour or less, I guess...until I get some strength back in it. I'm hoping one or both of the kids will get interested - our school district does NOT have an orchestra...pity. I need to see what I can do to change that. :evil grin:

I have cuts and scrapes and bruises all over...not sure where *some* of the bruises came from; the rest came from hauling the lumber/tin around yesterday. If I have the energy, I'll try to start the hole for the last corner of the new coop tonight...all bets are off, though.

Not much else going on....

And if you really get bored we have 250 post holes to dig, to replace the broken post holes around the pastures. We'd even let you borrow the little Ford N tractor with the PTO driven post hole digger on it.

Fencing is right up there with pulling windmills, and going to the dentist. It's really not my most favorite thing to do in the world.

Mine either, which is why I paid to have the 2 paddocks redone last year. I'd rather have dental work done without novacaine instead of re-running fence wire!

I love my PTO-driven auger; unfortunately we can't get the tractor in the chicken run. :sigh: I get to start the hole by hand....:blech: Do they REALLY need a new coop? (yes....)

I suppose we could have someone else do it, but it's like pulling the windmill and replacing the leather on the bottom of the rods, the well drillers charge $1500. to pull windmills, and we already pulled 4 this year alone.

These are just random post out in the fence lines, one every 300 ft or so, in a 350 acre pasture, so it'd be hard to let the person know just where the broken post are, since we have 12 pastures, not all of them are 350 acres, a few are smaller, like 80 to 140 acres.

That and we have to replace the corner post in the small corral, something chased the 7 head of dry cows through the barb wire gate, and they hit it with such a force that it broke the corner post, which is the width of a telephone post. Not sure what scared them, a mountain lion or they said that a Bear had been spotted near our little town.
