Not sure what to do today
It was showering as I got it going this morning. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, or what I could do with the rain. Kayaking was out and the yard was too wet to do much in it.
Good day to visit Joe
I finally decided to go visit my friend Joe and see what he was up to, as he’s always building something and some of the stuff is interesting that he does.
Joe is always working on something
We sat around and shot the bull for a bit, then Joe showed me his deck add-on and repair he was doing. The old deck had rotten supports and he had to replace them so he decided to do the add-on too. Since he works in steel, he made the deck supports out of steel and the whole structure is real rigid because of it.
We sat around and shot the bull some more then I took off for home, stopping at the grocery store on the way.
Propane smell at the neighbors
The rain showers had mostly stopped, but it was still spitting once in awhile, so I went over to see what my neighbor was doing. As I approached their door, I smelled propane gas. I said what are you doing, trying to blow the place up? Turned out to be a leak in the feed line of the stove. I also installed a new circuit breaker for them before returning home for a short nap.
Walking over to get some asparagus
Eventually I went back outside and decided to go take a look at my brother’s garden and see if there were any asparagus up yet. It’s about a quarter mile walk through another neighbors place, through this apple orchard with blooming trees.
Armstrong Valley Farm’s garden
No asparagus here
Hummm, no asparagus. My brother had picked all of them the other day for the market and he did too good of a job.
But it won’t be long and we’ll be in strawberries
I checked out the strawberry patch to see how they were coming along. It looks like it shouldn’t be too long before we can indulge in those as there were a lot of small green berries and lots of blooms.
The carrots are looking a bit on the older side
The three little pigs
The carrots where no good
I walked on back to my house and washed the dirt off the carrots and found them over the hill and not much edible to eat on them.
And that was my day.
