Putt-zy Day

Hi to all ! I have been a busy gal today. After making breakfast and filling a lunchpail for My Guy, seeing my sleepy GrandLove off to his mothers, Bill off to work and downing a second cup of coffee while making a quick call to Mom and Mel, my day really began.
Note: I have learned to 'check-in' with Mom each morning or we worry if we cannot reach each other. The ol' bachelor fella, Gene, down the road, calls every morning too, to let me know he's up and moving. He knows I'll be checking on him if he doesn't 'check-in' first. The poor fellas arthritis is getting the best of him. Besides, he always has a " Did you hear?..., (not that we gossip), and he is eager to tell a tasteful joke or two, to start our day.

Back to my day.
I was still catching my breathe from our over-worked firewood weekend, so I thought I would catch another hour of sleep. Well, just when you want sleep, sleep won't come. What else could I do, but
go outside and start to locate and move some Missouri Primrose that were getting choked out last year already, by the Snow On the Mountain. Well, if that don't beat all, NO PRIMROSE. So, no transplants!
What else could I do, but
take a walk. Afterall, I already had my shoes on. I walked a 1/2 mile down the road to my son's warehouse to see the progress. Two of the boys are converting what was a bait and archery shop into an archery range in hopes of eventually catering to archery hunters and their competitive leagues. They will have a nice place to practice all they want. They got my approval and did not really need me to supervise today, so homeward bound.
The walk sure did me good. I need to dedicate myself to making a habit of it for my health-sake. I'm afraid I'm not getting any younger. My goal?--3 miles.
Hmm, what else could I do?
OK, what's for supper? A whole roasted chicken sounds good, so while defrosting it, I baked a pan of Peanut Butter Brownies with a few alterations. Good enough for My Guy's sugar lows, should he have them again today.
My bypass pruners needed a squirt of WD40. Since they also needed to be tested for accuracy, it meant a jaunt to the edge of the woods to clip a few branches. They worked like new again so I cut an armful of long willow and alder brush sticks. These will be used in a couple of days for yet, another project. This brings to mind the 'Project' I've been hinting about the past week or so.
What else could I do, except
To start 'The Project'. The first half of it required the assistance of My Guy and several of his trusty tools. We sure are grateful for his shop to make life just a bit easier. The second half of 'The Project', will be continued tomorrow. All good things come to those who wait., Right?
What else could I do? but
Be patient. So much to do, so little time with our short summers!
I will Get-er-done, with Bill's help, of course. I am so anxious for tomorrow!
Meanwhile, BlessYaEveryOne

Oh what a tease! We transplanted grapes today, so hoping they crawl up the arbor and produce this year.

Hi Dar-Friend, You are always busy!!!! I have no trouble relaxing sometimes ---but I do enjoy yardwork. My relaxation comes when I'm watching the backyard birds and trying to get some good pictures. That takes PATIENCE (which is something I don't seem to have alot of)... ha ha

Can't wait to hear more about your new project.....

Have a great Tuesday.

I'm wondering what in the world is Dar up to now. Your day sounded pretty good to me.

Goodness, you must be full of energy to stay so busy, busy, busy. It sounds like an enjoyable day of busy. I like times like that.
Wishing you a relaxing and busy week! lol

I'm excited to hear more about this project! Looking forward to today's post.

Thanks for the encouragement about how good you felt after you'd taken that walk. I need to start doing the same thing.

You are a blessing to me, Dar.

Lucy said...

I must say you do cook a lot and it never fails to make me hungry. I did a quite a bit today also considering the state of my body.

'tis a fact you make a body hungry!
YOu are one busy bee, and I know it is not the short summers, you would do it if you were down here with a long summer, but wow how much you would do!
I loved the entry, can't wait for the 'REST of THE STORY!'
Love from NC

PS: gotta love a tools shed. I hope the guys are onto something BIG with the ARchery range. Sounds like a great idea!
