Wasted Days and Wasted Nights

I spent the day away from the home front today.
I got nothing accomplished here. Nothing.
Unless you consider picking up some needed garden items, ergonomic bypass pruners, another 100 ft. of professional water hose, more flower seeds, onion sets, a couple varieties of lilies, a yellow climbing rose, and burgundy dianthus.
Of course we needed
A couple of work shirts,
New pans, the heavy duty, non-stick kind that can withstand up to 500 degrees in my oven, with the heat resistant handles, and
A Microwave. Our old one saw it's last day.
My man needed another pair of work pants, so we are both ready for more work.

After supper with Mom and my brother Eric, we played cards, but only one hand. I won't bore you with the menu of grilled pork steaks, curried rice and peas and sauteed zuchinni, tomatoes, bacon and onions, washed down with lemonade.

Eric wanted to get Mom home in time to call a few turkeys. He called a bit later to tell us that he put a couple of them (turkeys) to bed, so would be over a bit later in the morning. He will be giving a guided turkey hunt in the morning to a young couple as they hope to bag one for their table.

I just had the nicest visit with my Tx. sis, Colleen. She is always good for a lot of laughs and honest chit-chat about everything and nothing. Bless her heart. I would be lost without her. There is not a week goes by without talking sometimes several times but nearly always, ALWAYS, on Friday. We are each others kick-off to a good weekend. Talked to Mel this morning, so I would say I am doubly blessed. Heck, Mom, Linda and Cher got into the conversations too during the past couple of weeks, so I guess that would make me doubly, doubly, and then-some blessed.

To bed early tonight, as tomorrow will be a busy one. Bill and Eric will be using the tractor and jammer tomorrow to load and haul the saw logs out of the woods . Some of these will be cut into lumber at Bill's brothers sawmill down the road.
I will be following on the 4-wheeler with water and camera to give you all a play-by-play of the operation.
After the morning exercise, I will be edging and waddling a flower bed, planting a few things, and trying to think up a disguise for Bill's latest invention. Mercy. He made a garden hose rack. It's HUGE.

It wasn't a wasted day or night afterall....

Bless you all and have a safe weekend.
Until we meet again.

What do you take for energy? WOW! I used to do good in my 40's and 50's but my 70's are killing me. Be waiting for the pictures of the activity tomorrow.

Sounds like you were pretty busy to me!

I am new here, Dianne sent me. I think I am going to enjoy my visit and the food sounds wonderful...what, no cornbread?! LOL

Anyway, I am going to click on "follow" so I can find my way back. Come by and visit if you get a free minute! We live in the country in Oklahoma.

Must be all that clean living that gives you all that energy! I feel absolutely lazy compared to you! In fact, I need a short nap now. Sounds like a wonderful day though! I forgot the turkeys were in season right now. Once again, we didn't get our licenses. Hopefully next year!

Some days are slow, some days are busy but, if you can go to bed at night and feel content than it was worth it no matter how the day went.

Yeah, I can see where the day was completely wasted! hahahahaha! Sounds like a busy shopping trip to me.

And I appreciate you not boring us with the menu of grilled pork steaks, curried rice and peas and sauteed zuchinni, tomatoes, bacon and onions, washed down with lemonade. That was very nice. Thanks.

I would have been so upset if I had to listen to a boring meal.

Rest, and we are looking forward to the log snaking. At least that is what my dad called it.

Sounds like it was a very productive day Dar- just not having fun making things- Getting things for the garden is always inspiring at this time of year. Its a bit early to plant here in Alberta but my dad is busy getting the yard ready to plant.
Enjoy your Sunday.

No Dar, it doesn't seem like a wasted day and night at all..... How did Colleen get to Texas? Is she the only family member away from your area???? Bet she misses it!!!
