A Walk In the Woods and I Work On the Garden Enclosure

Tuesday March 21, 2017 Guerneville CA.

A little walk instead

It was raining this morning when I woke up, but stopped by the time I got it going. I went outside to work on my garden enclosure.

But while I was sitting in my chair figuring out what to do Ray came walking in. He wanted to know about our going down the river in a couple days, so we shot the bull about that for a bit.

I didn’t really feel like working on the garden enclosure so I suggested we go for a little walk up into the hills by the park so that’s what we did.

We walked through the forest

We walked up past our water tanks. It was threatening to rain, but so far it wasn’t.tanks

 

We walked up along this road.ray

 

And across and through the forest on this road.road

 

And then came down this road taking our time shooting the bull.rayroad

 

And down through this road which is almost back.roadray

 

Armstrong Valley Farm onions

We stopped at my brothers garden to see what was growing. Looks like he has lots of onions growing here.onions

 

And we walked by  some of my cherry trees which are blooming right now as we got back to the yard.cherry

 

Ray took off for home when we got back and I had a little nap.

And I got some work done on the enclosure

After awhile, I went out to work on the garden enclosure. I needed to cut some rebar for the roof supports, so I measured the parts and began cutting the rebar. Before I was done, a rain shower burst open and got everything so wet I had to stop, even though it was just a shower, it soaked everything and it’s not good to weld in wet stuff. So  I closed up the garage and sat around in the yard for a bit before it cooled down too much then I went in the house for the day.

And that was my day for a nice one.

Spark Plugs For My Car and Leeks for Me

Monday March 20, 2017 Guerneville CA.

A rainy day

It was raining as predicted today as I got it going. Seemed like a good day to go to Guerneville and shop for some groceries so that’s what I did first off.

New plugs for the car

Next I found the new spark plugs I’d bought the other day for my car and rounded up the tools to install them.plugs

 

I checked the fluids as long as I was in there and added some oil.

That didn’t take too long, so I went back in the house and hung out waiting for a break in the light rain we were getting.

Some leeks would be good

Eventually I could see we weren’t going to get a break in the rain so I put on my rain jacket and went next store to where my brother has some leeks growing. The other day he went by with a load of them he was gong to sell and said I should eat some leeks as they were quite good, so I had to dig some up to do that.

Armstrong Valley Farm’s leaks

Here’s some of his leeks. He runs Armstrong Valley Farm and sells them at the farmer’s markets.leaks

 

The ground was a bit muddy from the rains. I dug up a few of them.leak2

 

Then took them back to my house to wash the mud off and they were looking good.leak

 

The rest of he day I spent inside the house as the rain just kept coming down which is ok with me.

And that was my day.
